US Open: Colin Morikawa and Joel Dahmen are leading the bottom five at the weekend

Dehman was on a one-stroke lead after the first round and scored 68 in stormy conditions. He is one of only three players to score 68 or more in the first two rounds. Morikawa Under came on the first day and was the only player to score 66 in the day round.

One stroke behind the front is a group of five, led by American duo Hayden Buckley and Aaron Wise, as well as Rory McIlroy and John Rahm. Buckley and Wise were the two players Dahman scored 68 runs for.

Beau Hosler joined the under-four group due to a chip-in birdie on his final hole.

Scott Schaffler, a world number one, is part of the three-under group and shared an early clubhouse lead after a three-under 67. He is joined in the top-10 by Nick Hardy, Matthew Nesmith, Patrick Rogers and Brian Herman. ,

Overnight leader Adam Hadwin returned another shot in the two-under with Sam Burns and Matt Fitzpatrick, while South Africa’s MJ Dafeu – three strokes clear on the leaderboard at the start of his six-under round – posted five bogeys and no birdies. Back to the weekend for one under nine.

Also optimistic are Xander Schaffle and Will Zlatoris, who are still at a significant distance, while Hideki Matsuyama and Brooks Kopka are leveling in the group.

The star-studded duo of Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson is in one over, and Jordan Spieth and Bryson DeChambu are on more than two, one-strokes of the cut-line.

Recent winners Lee Kung-hoon and Colombia’s Sebastian Munoz were completing the cut-line in three overs, with the pair in the top three this season.

Many big names, including Spain’s Sergio Garcia, Ireland’s Shane Lori, Chile’s Mito Pereira and Canada’s Corey Connors, did not participate in the tournament. Tony Finnau completed five overs, Cameron Smith six overs and a pair of Tommy Fleetwood and Victor Holland completed seven overs.

Shot of the day

Cameron Young will never forget the moment when he combined hole-in-one in par-three sixes.

The American’s Dream Tea Shot fell into a 165-yard hole. Young couldn’t cut – missed a stroke – but not without a rare performance.

The best player of the day – Colin Morikava

Morikawa spent the weekend making sure he was the same guy all day.

The two-time major winner was not on his best performance, but was led by five birdies and just one bogey in fifth place.

Chipping in

Morikava: “No one went deep and ran like that, but you know, my game looks really good right now. The last few days of this weekend have been a confidence booster for me and I hope we can do something different.”

Schaffler: “I’ve been number one in the world for a while, and I don’t really think so, so I just like under the radar. I can do my job by showing up and then go home and relax.”

A little bird told me …

Young’s ace was 48th in the history of the US Open.

– Nick Hardy and MJ Dapheu dropped out of Springfield, Ohio qualifying round. The duo formed part of the front on Friday.

While being the number one player in the world since the official World Golf Rankings began in 1986, the major winner is only Scheffler trying to become the second player. Tiger Woods (2000, 2002 and 2008) is the only person who has achieved this.
