McDowell aiming to get into contention

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell makes the cut at the Open after shooting a level-par 71 in his second round at Muirfield.

McDowell, recent winner of the French Open, had carded a four-over round of 75 on Thursday, and was pleased to qualify for Saturday and Sunday's play.

"I did not want to be sitting at home watching this on TV," he said.
