113th U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club

By David Wharton

The way things are going at the U.S. Open on Friday – i.e.: bogey-fest — Phil Mickelson might want to stay on the practice range.

Mickelson has opened a lead at Merion Golf Club simply by way of his late tee time for the second round, remaining at three under while the rest of the field disappears.

Luke Donald, Russell Knox, Mathew Goggin, K.J. Choi, all of them slipped away with a stretch of mistakes on an unforgiving course that warmed steadily under sunny Pennsylvania skies.

At one point in the afternoon, Tiger Woods showed signs of building momentum. Then came a missed birdie putt at No. 6 and a bogey from the rough just off the green at No. 7. At  three over par, he was set to finish his second round with a several favorable holes in the middle of the course.
