Martin Kaymer has set a blistering 10-under pace at the midway point of the 114th U.S. Open. Earlier in the week, no one would have thought consecutive 65s were possible, but the USGA and Mother Nature softened up the course enough to make the holes locations at Pinehurst No. 2 accessible. Kaymer benefited the most from the conditions, and his six-stroke lead tied the record for the largest lead after 36-holes at the U.S. Open.

Brendon Todd is in the midst of a career month on the PGA Tour, and the U.S. Open is the latest venue where he is showcasing his talent. Todd’s performance at Pinehurst is being overshadowed by Martin Kaymer, but after a 67 in the second round, he sits in solo second place at four-under.

Jimenez headlines

Jimenez headlines group of 25 that qualified

25 additional players punched their tickets to the upcoming U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, receiving exemptions via being in the top 60 in the Official World Golf Rankings as of May 26. Miguel Angel Jimenez, who finished tied for runner-up to Tiger Woods at the 2000 U.S. Open, headlines the group — he’s ranked No. 27 in the world, thanks to his fine play as of late.

Thank you, thank you very much

Thank you, thank you very much

Brendon Todd, with no PGA Tour victories to his name and butterflies in his stomach, arrived at the par-13 13th hole with a two-shot final round lead over Mike Weir, who had minutes ago drained a birdie putt on the same green to reach -12. It was the score Weir would take into the clubhouse five holes later, and the task facing Todd—reminiscent of Martin Kaymer a week earlier—was to avoid the kind of disastrous mistake that would erase his two-shot cushion and force him into a playoff. Or a loss.

More to come?

Clutch!

Brendon Todd was on a mission to capture his first PGA Tour win at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.  He chipped in from the bunker on two to tie a surging Mike Weir for the lead, and made key par saves down the stretch to win the Byron in dramatic fashion.  After the round, Todd said, “My short game was on fire, that’s what really got me through.”

Tiger's son Charlie watches daddy

Tiger Woods hit a spectator in the head, dumped one in the hazard on the par-3 5th (his 14th of the day), struggled with his ballstriking, but he scrambled his way to a two-under 68 at PGA National to safely make weekend play. Phew. Tournament directors, sponsors, network executives and fans can stop panicking and rest easy.

Yes, “Tiger makes the cut” is now breaking news. Weird. (Maybe stranger that I’m not used to it by now?)
