The third major championship of the 2022 season of golf has arrived amidst a controversy raging behind the scenes. However, the US Forestry Association ensured that as little wind as possible was taken out of the sails of their first event as the 2022 US Open contenders began facing The Country Club. This is the first time since 1988 that a national champion has been crowned in Brooklyn, Massachusetts, and some of the top contenders are playing with great momentum.
Masters Champion Scottie Scheffler Ato enter into a dispute. Schaeffler aims to become the sixth golfer to win the Masters title and the US Open in the same season.
However, he was not the favorite to start the tournament. That honor belonged to Rory McIlroy, who went hotter than anyone else on the field after defending his title at the RBC Canadian Open. McIlroy has three other Top 10 finishes in his previous four starts and is one of only four golfers to finish in the top ten in three (or more) of his last five US games.
McIlroy made the most of his momentum by opening play at The Country Club with a score of 67, and after a rough start Friday with a double bogey in the fourth third, Byrdie scored in three of his last seven holes to finish with 69 and sit just one stroke off the lead – the same position he entered in it today. If Rory gets the job done this weekend, he will win his first major championship since 2014.
Colin Morikawa came out and had the best Friday of anyone with a 4-under 66 with a stealth-free effort across his last 14 holes of the day to take the 36-hole lead. He’s joined by Jon Ram, climbing the leaderboard, who scored a goal for Eagle on Day 14 to score 3-under 67 and sits one shot behind Morikawa alongside McIlroy, Beau Heusler, Aaron Weiss and Hayden Buckley.
