Some quick late night notes regarding play at the U.S. Open:
(1) For the third straight day, the heavy rains at Bethpage Black left a round incomplete.
(2) Tiger Wood's still kept his hopes alive going into the third round by firing in a 69. However, Tiger still has plenty of work left due to the fact he is 11 strokes behind.
(3) Ricky Barnes, currently the leader at 8 under par, recorded the lowest 36 hole score in the history of the U.S. Open. Barnes completed his second round play with a 65.
(4) Phil Mickelson is currently 1 under par and tied for 12th through second round play.
In addition, Iowa Hawkeye's offensive tackle Kyle Calloway was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated after officers stopped him while driving a moped. This has nothing to do with the U.S. Open, but it sparked my interest because I would like to see an offensive lineman on a moped.
More to come!
