Winged Foot Golf Club, Mamaroneck, NY — September 19, 2020

Winged Foot toughed up on Friday, after allowing 21 scores under par on Day 1, only 3 golfers managed to post numbers in the red on cut day. Bryson DeChambeau had the low round of Day 2 shooting a 2 under par 68 to move within 1 stroke of the lead. Just 6 golfers remain below par for the tournament, as the course got up off the mat and punched back with the ferocity most expected.

The Leaders

First Round leader Justin Thomas carded 3 birdies on Friday, but four bogeys and a double-bogey dropped him to 2 under par and a tie for 3rd place. Patrick Reed had a rollercoaster round with 5 birdies and 5 bogeys to stay at 4 under and take the lead of the tournament at the halfway point.

Bryson DeChambeau is the only golfer to post sub-par rounds over the first 2 days. His 68 combined with Thursday’s 69 gave him sole possession of 2nd at 3 under par. DeChambeau’s round was similar to Reed’s scorecard with 5 birdies and 5 bogeys. An eagle on the par 5 ninth hole, made the difference for DeChambeau. Rhafael Cabrera Bello and Harris English joined Justin Thomas 2 back from the lead at -2. Jason Kokrak was the only other contestant under par at -1 placing him in 6th place.

Tiger Misses Cut

Tiger Woods ballooned to 10 over par with a 2nd round 77. He missed the 6-under cut line by 4 strokes. He was not the only big name to exit the tournament early. PGA Champion Collin Morikawa, defending U.S. Open Champion Gary Woodland, Martin Kaymer, Tommy Fleetwood, Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Steve Stricker, Ian Poulter, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, and Sergio Garcia all packed up and headed home.

Notables

Bubba Watson shot a 69 to sit at 1 over par with Jon Rahm who went 69-72. Tony Finau is another shot back at 2 over.

Dustin Johnson clawed back into a tie for 22nd with an even-par 70 and a two day total of 3 over. He is still 7 strokes off the lead and will have to score well on moving day to be in a position to contend on Sunday. Rory McIlroy followed his Day 1 score of 67 with a 6 over par 76 to join Johnson at 3 over.

Paul Casey, Rickie Fowler, and Jason Day moved on to the weekend by posting scores on the cut line.
