The Latest from the 144th British Open on the Old Course at St. Andrews (all times local):

11:15 a.m.

The Old Course is ripe for low scoring Sunday at the British Open. Just ask David Duval.

One day after wind ripped through St. Andrews and forced a delay of more than 10 hours, conditions could not have been easier — calm, soft from passing showers and a lot of red numbers early on the leaderboard.

Duval had to birdie the 18th hole to make the cut on the number. He went out in 32 on Sunday and already was 6-under par through 15 holes.

English amateur Ashley Chesters had two birdies and an eagle through five holes. Graeme McDowell had seven birdies in 13 holes.

Dustin Johnson had a one-shot lead and won't start until 3 p.m. If conditions remain unchanged, he could have the final word.
