Tfter a creditable first round par (70) at The Country Club, Scottie Scheffler seemed poised to repeat a similar result in the second. The number one in the world came out with two bogeys and a birdie from the first nine holes. His luck began to change in the 13th, after a superb iron as a second shot that put a new birdie within reach.
However, the best was yet to come. It was in the 14th. Impeccable start and the world leader was very solid this Friday from the tee. As Rahm said, the second shot is the key at Brookline, so as not to end up in the extensive rough that surrounds the small greens, although this is more forgiving than at other US Opens. From there the Masters winner scored an incredible approach that ended up giving him an eagle.
Later, on the 16th, the New Jersey golfer scored another great iron off the tee that he finished off with a mid-distance putt. In this way, the world leader finds himself with 137 hits in the global after signing 67 on the day.
