A second round 3-under 67 has catapulted world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler into the co-lead of the 122nd US Open as the afternoon wave is set to begin play. Struggling out of the gates on Friday, the Texan caught fire in the middle of his back nine and played a four-hole stretch in 4 under, punctuated by an eagle on the par-5 14th.
Scheffler now finds his name alongside Nick Hardy who has signed for rounds of 69-68. Four other men occupy the top of the leaderboard and have yet to kick off their second rounds, including four-time major champion Rory McIlroy. Hot off the successful defense of his RBC Canadian Open title, the Northern Irishman was nearly flawless en route to what was a bogey-free first round … through 17 holes.
McIlroy will look to push past Scheffler with a strong second round as will those just a few strokes behind. Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris and Max Homa were all able to play themselves into red figures with their Thursday performances and will hope for more of the same this afternoon. With plenty of action yet to unfold, these titans of the game are sure to make their claim on this championship.
