The Australian compiled one of the great St Andrews rounds to take the half-way lead, sinking six birdies and an eagle in an eight-under-par 64 in Round Two.
That lifted him to 13-under-par for the Championship, the lowest score to par after 36 holes in St Andrews’ Open history, but Smith expects scoring to be much tougher this weekend.
With the threat of weekend rain rescinding, the Old Course is likely to be revert to firm and fast after morning rain softened it slightly on Friday.
