Tough Scoring The Story Of Round 2 At Merion

The first round of the U.S. Open was a soggy one as few players even finished their first round, but the one that did, Phil Mickelson, held the first round lead at 3-under. But day two would not have nearly as many red figures.

Tiger woods finished his first round early in the day at 3-over par and early in his 2nd round at the 13th, with the nice tee shot which got within four feet of the hole. He would birdie and move to 2-over.

Luke Donald got to 4-under at one point, but tried to get out of the rough but couldnt make it happen. He would go on to make bogey and drop to 2-under finishing round 2 at even par.

Then playing his back nine at the 2nd, Tiger had a nice approach as he stuck one about a foot from the hole to make birdie and move to 3-over where he finished his 2nd round.

On the 10th Billy Horschel also a nice approach, as he got one about three feet, he would make birdie and get to even par to finish the day 1-under thanks to the best round of the day at 3-under.

On to the 1st round leader, Phil Mickelson had a steady round today but two bogeys just a later in the round dropped him out of a three way tie for first with Billy Horschel, Justin Rose and Steve Stricker.
