Hunter Mahan was doing just fine Friday morning when he began Day 2 of the U.S, Open. He was even-par through his first four holes before a birdie on No. 5. Then he got to the sixth hole, a par-4 that he bogeyed on Day 1. This time he triple bogeyed it and his score dropped to +2 on the day, +4 on the tournament.
Mahan is still doing better than guys like Texas Longhorns golfer Jordan Spieth, who entered the U.S. Open as an alternate and is currently 7-over par.
Fort Worth native Cole Howard shot +10 on Day 1, so the situation could certainly be much worse for Mahan, who is at least in contention.
Michael Thompson still holds the lead after his performance on Thursday, with a 4-under par score off 66.
