Winged Foot Is the Winner After Two Days of U. S. Open
Saturday, September 19, 2020

    On Thursday, except for a few cases, Winged Foot confounded the U. S. Open competitors to a point where the projected cut line was up around +4 or +5 all day. Yesterday, it got worse, and 62 players who shot +6 or better advanced to today's third round.

    Patrick Reed's 66-70-136, 4 under par, leads the way after 36 holes, with Bryson DeChambeau alone in second with 69-68-137. Bryson is one of just three players to shoot under the par of 70 in round 2.

    There's a deadlock for third at 2 under 138 among Rafa Cabrera Bello, Harris English and Justin Thomas, and Jason Kokrak is in sixth at 1 under. A fivesome at even par includes Xander Schauffele and Hideki Matsuyama. 

    Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were among those who didn't come close to playing the weekend. Tiger had to birdie two of his last three holes to finish at 10 over (73-77), while Phil, who won his Champions Tour debut two weeks ago, shot 79-74-153, 13 over. 

    Gator Billy Horschel is tied for 17th with 72-70-142, 2 over, and Seminole Daniel Berger is tied for 22nd with 73-70-143, 3 over.

    Jon Rahm is five off the pace at +1, and Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are still in the hunt, both at 3 over.
