Dyson's second round was interrupted by high winds at St Andrews

Simon Dyson was pleased with his efforts at St Andrews after holding on in the worst of the weather to comfortably make the cut on level par.

Dyson followed his 69 with a three-over 75 in a six-hour round that included a suspension of play for high winds.

But he told BBC Sport: "I'm pleased as the way I played I deserved it. It was brutal but enjoyable at same time

"I've hit it beautiful for two days and if I get the flat stick working you never know what might happen."

Yorkshireman Dyson, who now lives in Mancehster, went to the turn in 38 after bogeys at six and eight, followed by another at the 10th.

But birdies at 12 and 14 effectively secured his place for the weekend, allowing him the luxury of two dropped shots late in his round at 16 and 17.

And Dyson now hopes to clean up if Saturday's weather forecast proves correct.

"If the weather's all right tomorrow, and it's forecast to be the nicest it's been all week," he added. "Then hopefully I can get out early and post a low one."
