Going to be at least one dropped shot for Justin Rose on 15 after a poor chip. Jordan Spieth’s birdie attempt comes up about a foot short and he is visibly frustrated. Rahm drains his par save. Rose converts for bogey so he drops to -3 — four back of Kisner’s lead.
Jordan just hit a magical Tigeresque shot from the woods to about 10 feet. He went from deep trouble to birdie opportunity. That was cool. Hot round of the day thus far belongs to Englishman Matt Wallace who is making the turn at -4 on the day which brings him to -3 for the tournament.
“Distance is not so important here as you might think” Gary Player said after winning the 1965 U.S. Open at a 7200-yard Bellerive (the longest-ever U.S. Open at the time). Will that hold true this week?
