Dustin Johnson leads the way for LIV Golf players after two rounds at the 150th Open Championship in Scotland. 

Johnson shot 5-under on Friday to enter the weekend 9-under overall and alone in fifth place. 

Other big LIV movers included Sergio Garcia, who shot 6-under Friday to make the weekend at 3-under, and Patrick Reed, who went 4-under Friday to make the cut at 3-under. 

Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson were two of LIV's top names to miss the cut at even. Koepka was 4-over for the tournament  while Mickelson was 5-over. 

LIV Golf event winner Louis Oosthuizen, a former major champion, also missed the cut after finishing the second round at 1-over.
