Oakmont Might Take the Place of Coal in Your Stocking

Since most of the morning flight is making their way to the back nine, I think it is time to check out some of the "scores" from Day Two.

Paul Casey is the only player of the day under par, finding himself three-under (LORD HAVE MERCY) for the day with only four holes to go. Casey has only one bogey and has strung off five straight pars on his second nine. If Casey finishes up three-under, he will be four-over for the tournament and be host to the best round of the tournament.

Also, Aaron Baddeley, Kevin Sutherland and Steve Stricker are even on their round.

With the cut projected at +5 and probably moving to 7 or 8 by the end of the day, lets take a look at some of the golfers that aren't going to make the cut.

Brett Quigley shot 78 in the first round and is 11-over through 11 holes today. Steve Marino shot a 59 in last year's Gateway Tour Championship, but might post a little higher than that at Oakmont. He is 17-over for the tournament, eight-over today. Also, for you that picked Adam Scott, maybe you should quit gambling. The Kid is +8 today and +14 for the week.

Whew...that is a lot of addition signs.

Isn't the US Open anyone within 10 shots? I would think that would place the cut solidly at +8 by the end of the round, if not +10 or 11.
