"We'll just see how the weekend goes".

Lombard, who was joint sixth at halfway in last year's Open but finished 67th after a closing 82 at Carnoustie, declared himself "ecstatic" to find himself in the lead after enduring six straight missed cuts. I'm so comfortable on links golf. It's never just a normal shot, it's always a little three quarter, a little punch, judging the wind right.

Three places in the Open at Royal Portrush are on offer to players, who are not already exempt, who finish in the top 10 on Sunday.

"I just love being very creative around the greens, also off the tees". "It was a tough day because I had to be really patient and today was the best day I've swung the club this week".

"It's going to be in the back of my mind but if I play well that all takes care of itself", said Dawson, who only received an invite into the £5.5million event on Monday morning and was scheduled to travel to Slovakia for a Challenge Tour event that evening. I'd be a basket case if I didn't play the week before. If nothing good happens for the next three days, so be it. 'I might be wrong, but I get the impression the locals quite like having a drink'.

"It's disappointing not to make it but 60 is a great score and I've played rubbish so far this season so it's nice to play better".

Former champion Shane Lowry, who won the title in 2009 while still an amateur, and 2017 victor Jon Rahm are both two under after rounds of 72 and 71 respectively.
