The 2nd round of the 2011 US Open began early Friday morning at the Congressional in Maryland. Everyone is chasing Rory McIlroy who fired a 6-under 65 in the opening round. That was good enough for a 3-shot lead over Y.E Yang and Master’s Champion Charl Schwartzle.
It was not a good for Wisconsin golfers in round 1. Steve Stricker shot a 75 to finished the day 4-over and 10 shots off the pace. Mark Wilson ended 7-over with a 78. Both golfers are on the course in the morning session.
A couple other top Americans failed to hit their stride on day 1. Phil Mickleson ended at 3-under par with Dustin Johnson at 4-under.
