Steele Holds Lead at Open

When you can shoot seven strokes worse in the second round than you did in the first and still hold a two-stroke lead, that tells you just how well that first round was.

Steele followed up his course record-tying 63 with a 70 that kept him in front of the field. At 11-under, he’s the only player in the field double-digit strokes below par.

“I expected today to be tough,” Steele said. “And it’s always tough to follow up a round like yesterday with anything even under par. I think we’ve seen guys over the years follow 63 up usually with something around par. If you can go lower than that, you probably have a pretty good-sized lead.”
