The sky has cleared and the chase is on at the U.S. Open.
After a rain-soaked first two days at Merion Golf Club, Phil Mickelson and Billy Horschel held the lead after two rounds at 1-under. Horschel hit all 18 greens in regulation during his second round en route to the top of the leaderboard, according to Golfweek.
"I wasn't in the zone, I was just focused on what I tried to do," Horschel said of his impressive second round, via The Associated Press. "I didn't know I hit every green until I walked off 18. It's a cool thing."
