Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (Course No. 2), Village of Pinehurst, NC — June 14, 2024

Tiger Woods will not be playing in the 124th U.S. Open final two rounds this weekend. Neither will Max Homa, Viktor Hovland, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, Will Zalatoris, Ricky Fowler, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Gary Woodland, Justin Thomas, and Phil Mickelson.

Unfortunately, neither will Flint’s Willie Mack III. Mack’s humbling story of living in the back seat of his Ford Mustang while he worked to fire up his professional golf career got a major boost this week after making the Open field via a qualifying play in tournament.

Mack’s first “major” start made the news wire with an opening round, one over par 71, just six strokes of the lead, and tied with the world’s No. 1 player. The dream of making the cut came crashing down with a second-round score of 80, 10 strokes over par, and six strokes above the cut line.

Scottie Scheffler, that World No. 1 player, will be at Pinehurst on Saturday and Sunday. But only because he was able to tie with 18 other golfers at five over par. The score below which the cut line fell.

The second-round leader is Ludvig Aberg. He sits alone atop the leaderboard at five under par. First-round co-leader Patrick Cantlay is a stroke back, tied with Thomas Detry and Bryson DeChambeau.

The other co-leader in the first round, Rory McIlroy, is tied for third with Matthieu Pavon and Tony Finau at three-under.

Only 10 strokes separate the leaders and the gaggle of golfers who just squeezed in under the cut. “Moving Day,” Saturday’s round should prove to be high drama as the cream of this year’s National Championship crop rises to the surface.
