Others, including Horschel, were too far gone by the time they reached the 18th.Horschel, who began the second round at 4 under, made four double bogeys or worse and shot the high score of the day, 14-over 85. Only one player in British Open history had a larger differential than Horschels 18 shots between the first and second rounds. Robin Davenport went from a 94 to a 72 in 1966 at Muirfield.No player has had a bigger meltdown over the first two rounds, and Horschels 18-stroke variation is the biggest at the Open since Colin Montgomerie went 64-84 in his second and third rounds at Muirfield in 2002.Horschel wound up on 10 over par.Former champion Louis Oosthuizen, who lost out to Zach Johnson in a three-man playoff at St. Andrews last year, made 9 on the par-4 11th and shot 12-over 83. The South African had a 12-over total and, as the world No. 14, was the highest-ranked player to depart.The only time Oosthuizen had a score better than par over his 36 holes was his hole-in-one on No. 14 in the first round.Shane Lowry, the 54-hole leader at last months U.S. Open, battled hard to shoot an even-par 71 in the afternoon but was undone by his opening-round 78.I played like Ben Hogan today and Hulk Hogan yesterday, Lowry said.Two-time Open champion Ernie Els would have made the cut with a par on No. 18. He drove into a fairway bunker and made bogey.Hideki Matsuyama of Japan covered his face with his cap after shooting 78 in his second round. Playing in a standout group with Rory McIlroy and Watson, the 17th-ranked Matsuyama had an 8-over total.Former Open champions Justin Leonard, Todd Hamilton, and Mark Calcavecchia all missed the cut. As did another, Ben Curtis, who visited three separate bunkers and took six shots in the sand to make 10 on the third hole. He shot 83.Paul Dunne was the joint third-round leader at St. Andrews in 2015, when he was an amateur. He didnt make the weekend in his first Open as a professional after shooting 77-78. Cheap Colts Jerseys . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. Authentic Daurice Fountain Jersey . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Jimmie Johnson didnt shy away from talk of a record-tying seventh Sprint Cup championship.So he has no reason to shy away from talk of an eighth.Within hours of hoisting his seventh Sprint Cup, Johnson couldnt avoid questions Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway about earning an eighth, a championship that would put him in elite company -- with himself. He currently sits tied with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. for the record with seven titles.I dont know what the chances are, but lets go, Johnson said a couple of hours after his victory celebrations. Im so excited to put that in front of myself and the team as a hurdle to get over and an accomplishment to achieve.Johnson swears that all he ever wanted to do was race. He obviously has done more than that with 80 victories and the seven titles -- with the seven coming in a shorter span (11 years) than Earnhardts first seven (15 years) and Pettys (16 years).The 41-year-old Johnson won five consecutive titles from 2006 to 10 and then again in 2013, with all of them coming in the 10-race mini-season format. This was his first in the elimination-style format implemented in 2014.I had a lot of fun racing for the sixth, Johnson said. This one and the calm nature and the way we went about business and got it done only gives me more confidence for tthe future. Authentic Darius Leonard Jersey. .I honestly feel like Im playing with house money. I never aspired to be famous. I never aspired to be a champion. I just wanted to race.Even his car owner, Rick Hendrick, didnt shy away from the conversation. Hendrick has won 12 of the past 25 championships -- seven with Johnson, four with Jeff Gordon and one with Terry Labonte.I think the five in a row was pretty phenomenal, and I think winning seven and tying seven is pretty special, Hendrick said. Im excited to see him and [crew chief] Chad [Knaus] try to break the record now because were tied, and you cant go to eight until you get seven.A seventh title didnt appear likely for much of the 2016 season, which included Johnsons longest winless streak -- 24 races -- of his career. His calm demeanor throughout it all likely helped, especially in the season finale Sunday, when he ran last among the four finalists for much of the race.He thinks he can bring the same attitude toward trying to win an eighth title.Ive found a way to put it in that simple mindset here the last couple attempts, in 13 and now in 16, Johnson said. I think it makes us really dangerous, and I look forward to the challenge of trying to get No. 8.
