US Open Round 2: Live Blog

Hey folks. I am going keep a running blog going throughout the rest of the second round at the U.S. Open. All times are EST. Make sure to leave comments as the action progresses.

Live Blog:

3:15 - Tom Watson - despite strong performances at the 2010 Masters and 2009 British Open - looked like he was out of it after a 78 yesterday. After 15 holes so far, he is -1 on the day (with a birdie on the 15th). That puts Watson on the current cut line. With a birdie on one of the final holes, it looks like he will see the weekend again.

3:06 - Tiger's tee shot on the par 3 5th hole trickles onto the green. He missed his lengthy birdie putt. No luck yet with getting some spark in his game. Ernie Els pars to stay at even for the tournament.

2:47 - Tiger taps in his bogey after having to take a drop on the 3rd hole. He is +5 and nine strokes off of the lead. He's getting dangerously close to the cut line.

2:35 - McDowell drains another birdie putt with three holes left to play. He sits at -4, which puts him one ahead of Dustin Johnson and three strokes ahead of the rest of the field.

2:30 - Tiger just missed his par putt on the 2nd hole (his 11th hole
of the day). Things are not looking good for an enormous Woods rally unless he gets some steam soon. He's at +4 now.

2:27 - Watching the U.S. Open gives one a new appreciation for sports that do not use the vuvuzela...

2:22 - ESPN just did an interview with Shaun Micheel, whose mother is battling cancer right now. The 2003 PGA Championship winner now has Lance Armstrong in his fan base (left).

2:17 - Graeme McDowell's lead at -3 would leave the cut line at +7. If that sticks, 103 players would make it to the weekend, as of right now. Whoa!

2:15 - Ernie Els just pounded a drive down the narrow 2nd fairway. He's playing like the old Big Easy again. If he could putt, he would be a real threat to win this thing. In the same group, Tiger's drive winds up in a bunker off the right side of the fairway.

2:02 - I'm jumping in now. Dustin Johnson is proving that he isn't the only one in the field who knows Pebble Beach from his past victory. Well, on second thought, he might be the only one. Tiger finished his opening nine with a score of 36. His early birdies disappeared after a bogey on the 17th (he started on the front nine today). He's T45 at the turn. is now on Facebook.
