Despite its reputation, Royal St. George’s has a history of giving up low scores. Henry Cotton set the major championship record with a 65 in 1934 when the British Open was held on the undulating links in England. Greg Norman became the first player to win the claret jug with all four rounds in the 60s at Royal St. George’s in 1993.
This year, however, has been as exception as the pleasant, summer weather off Sandwich Bay.
Through 36 holes, 11 players have shot 65 or better — one more than the previous 14 times the Open has come to . . .
