U.S. Open 2013 Update Heading Into Third Round

Another round of the 2013 U.S. Open completed, another day of looking at the leaders board and scratching your head. One under par leads the way while rain-soaked Merion Golf Club has seemingly come out of nowhere to eat the best golfers in the world alive.

Phil Mickelson and Billy Horschel lead the way, but not by much, and that’s after Lefty shot two-over on Friday. On the flip side, the cut is expected to be eight over par with the worst score so far a whopping 24 over.

We’re seeing an eerily familiar site on the big stage, though. Tiger Woods is grimacing in pain through every shot at the U.S. Open, much like he did when he won the epic 2008 playoff with Roco Mediate. The difference this time around is Tiger is three over par after two rounds instead of one under. But he’s still just four shots back of the lead!

Rory McIlroy is right with Tiger at three over while their third group partner, Adam Soctt, has faded from the top of the leader board. However, with many golfers forced to finish round two on Saturday due to weather delays, none of these highly-world-ranked golfers will know who’s in their third-round group until later in the morning at the earliest.

Hey, we told you the 2013 U.S. Open was going to be interesting, and this is just the beginning.
