Carnoustie - As if Carnoustie wasn't enough of a challenge, players now get to face wet conditions in The Open. 

A light rain fell overnight, and Brandt Snedeker put on rain gear as he coped with a light drizzle on Friday morning to start the second round.

The amount of rain was not expected to take away the fiery conditions of Carnoustie. 

Kevin Kisner played in the afternoon, unsure if the 5-under 66 he posted for the 18-hole lead would still be the score to chase by the end of the day. 

Among those with an early start was Rory McIlroy, who was three shots behind, and Tiger Woods, who opened with an even-par 71.

Five shots is the closest Woods has been to the lead after the first round since March.
