U.S. Open golf

PINEHURST, N.C. — Are we having fun yet? After two days of sorting through the pretenders and contenders at the U.S. Open—with Pinehurst No. 2 slowly but surely becoming the menace that many players feared earlier in the week—the on-course drama ramps up for Saturday’s third round.

Ludvig Aberg carries a one-shot lead after 36 holes, following an opening 66 with a Friday 69 that might have actually been a better performance given the tougher afternoon conditions facing the field. The 24-year-old Swede is playing in his first U.S. Open but looks once more like a seasoned professional, having impressive hit 26 of 28 fairways and 30 of 36 greens in regulation in his opening two rounds, leading the field in both categories. Were he to win on Sunday, Aberg would be the first U.S. Open rookie to claim the title since Francis Ouimet in 1913.

Playing in the final pairing with Aberg on Saturday will be a veteran who knows from winning the U.S. Open, 2020 champ Bryson DeChambeau. The 30-year-old is coming off a runner-up finish at the PGA Championship in May after a top-10 at the Masters in April. If there’s a more confident player right now, it’s hard to find him.

Tied for second with DeChambeau and playing in the penultimate group will be Patrick Cantlay and Thomas Detry. The former is an accomplished winner on the PGA Tour who’s has struggled to contend in majors but perhaps has gained some inspiration from close friend Xander Schauffele’s breakthrough at the PGA last month. The later quietly is coming off a T-4 showing himself at Valhalla but is making just his ninth career start in a major.

Twenty players are within five shots of the lead, including a major champions Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama, Xander Schauffele and Sergio Garcia. And 74 made the cut at five-over 145.
