It's moving day at the U.S. Open, and the question on everyone's mind is whether anyone will be able to move any closer to Rory McIlroy. The Irishman went gonzo on the venerable Congressional Country Club blue course Friday for the second consecutive round, staking himself to a mere 6 shot lead over Y.E. Yang (who is himself 3 shots up on the rest of the field). McIlroy's sometimes a little unpredictable, so it would be premature to say the tournament is over. But another 65 or 66 today and it might get pretty close. Of course, chances are the USGA slope gremlins were up all night tinkering with the course, so it should be a characteristic demolition derby of a day at the Open. Either way it should make for good TV.
Of course, for regulars of this site perhaps the bigger question is where the trio of former Georgia Bulldogs competing will finish. Currently the only amateur and youngest of the lot, Macon's Russell Henley, sits tied for 15th at 2 under. Tour superstar and kickass dancer Bubba Watson is tied with fellow 'Dawg Christo Greyling and a gaggle of others at 4 over, well off the pace. As Tankertoad noted yesterday Watson just didn't seem to get over his disastrous bogey-bogey-bogey finish to round one. For Greyling, a journeyman just trying to make a living in the game, making the cut at the Open makes it a successful weekend from the start. Here's hoping it's just the first of many similar paydays for him in the coming weeks and months.
At any rate, pull up a chair and the beverage of your choice for this, your U.S. Open Saturday Open Comment Thread.
