It … is … finally … over.

The British Open isn’t over, but the second round finally ended. In the case of former University of Texas star, that mean finishing the 18th hole about 22 hours after he began the second round. Spieth fired an even-par 72 over the two days of the second round — a round interrupted several times by rain and powerful, gusting winds — to remain at five-under par, five strokes off the lead held by Dustin Johnson.
