Rory Mcilory opend his US Open campaign with a 6 under 65 to take a 3 shot lead into round 2 from Y.E. Yang and Charl Schwartzel. Another shot further back were a bunch of players including Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen and aussie Scott Hend.
Mcilory stared off his second round like it was a continuation of round 1 with 2 birdies and an eagle on the front 9 and then 3 birdies on the back before finding water on the last and making double. Dispite making double he holds a 6 shot lead of YE Yang heading into the weekend. Behind Yang in 3rd position are a bunch of players including Sergio Garcia, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar. The best of the aussies at the half way mark are John Senden and Marc Leishman. When play was suspended due to darkness Nick O'Hern had a 8 foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. If he makes the putt to makes the weekend, if not he packs his bags and starts preparing for this next tournament!
The leading squad after the first 2 rounds is terrys. terrys is the only squad to have Mcilory so he'll be hoping Mcilory doesn't blow up with such a large lead like he did in the final round of the Masters this year!
