Graham DeLaet was going to have a well-deserved beer.

The 31-year-old from Weyburn, Sask., earned himself a Bellhaven Best -- his flavour of choice here -- after matching the best back nine of the day at the British Open Friday, a grinding, dirt-under-the-fingernails 2-under-par 33 that led to a 72, good enough to make the cut and play on the weekend in his first major.

"I'm pretty tired right now. It was fun. I'm tired. It wore me out. I'm going to go in have a bite to eat and probably a beer," said DeLaet, who has a 36-hole total of 6-over-par 148.
