Phil Mickelson walked off after a finishing par on Winged Foot's 18th hole and turned to one of his playing partners.

“Have a good weekend,” he said.

Lefty won't be joining him.

Returning to the site of one of his greatest meltdowns, Mickelson never got on track at Winged Foot in his first U.S. Open since turning 50.

Mickelson hit so many wild shots in a first-round 79 that he said “I'm so sick of this” while doubled over and never made the kind of run he needed in the second round to stick around for the weekend.

Daniel Berger is making a move in the U.S. Open even as Winged Foot appears to be tougher on the golfers in the second round.

After shooting 73 on Thursday, Berger had four birdies on the front nine to improve to 1 under. He fell back a shot to even par on the tournament with a bogey on the 10th hole.

The wind was picking up in suburban New York. Only six golfers were under par on the day, with the morning rounds still on the course and the afternoon half of the field yet to tee off. Included in the afternoon group are leader Justin Thomas and Patrick Reed, who was one stroke back after Thursday's opening round.

Thomas Pieters came back to the pack after a fast start in the second round moved him into the lead. After making the turn at 6 under, one stroke ahead of Thomas, Pieters posted back-to-back bogeys and then another pair of bogeys on 14 and 15. He was 2 over for the day and minus-2 for the tournament.

Andrew Putnam withdrew from the U.S. Open at Winged Foot early in his second round.

Putnam had two double bogeys and a bogey in the first four holes Friday to fall to 8 over. As he stood over his third shot on No. 5, just off the fairway with 125 yards to the hole, he signalled to his playing partners that he was dropping out.

That left 143 players left in the field. The cut at 36 holes will send the top 60 scorers and ties into the weekend.

Any notion that Winged Foot would go easy on Thomas Pieters disappeared in the span of two holes.

The Belgian made two birdies on the front nine to jump into the lead early on a cool, breezy Day 2 at the U.S. Open. Then, he went bogey-bogey on 10 and 11 to fall back into second place.

He is at 4-under par, one shot behind Justin Thomas, who tees off Friday afternoon.

With the entire morning wave on the course, there are only eight players with a below-par score for the day. They include Bubba Watson (1 under for the tournament) and Daniel Berger (even), who are 3 under. And Dustin Johnson, who is at 2 under on the day to get to 1 over for the tournament.

Winds are blowing out of the north and the temperature is hovering around 60, setting up what is expected to be a tougher day than Thursday, when Thomas shot the lowest U.S. Open score in history at notoriously difficult Winged Foot.

Andrew Thomas meeting Giants expectations at left tackle

  Andrew Thomas meeting Giants expectations at left tackle EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Andrew Thomas has seen some of the NFL's top passer rushers in his first two games and the rookie left tackle didn't disappoint the New York Giants. The fourth pick overall in the draft went against Bud Dupree of the Steelers in the season opener, and got a mix of Robert Quinn and Khalil Mack against the Bears last weekend. The Georgia product was supposed to face NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. He won't. The defensive end tore his ACL against the Jets last weekend and is out for the season. The 49ers have not said who will start for Bosa.

Tiger Woods has an afternoon tee time, as do Thomas and Patrick Reed, whose 66 left him one shot off the lead after the first day.

Gallery: The most scandalous moments in US Open history (Espresso)

Serena Williams hitting a ball with a racket: The U.S. Open has seen its share of controversial moments in the 140 years it’s been played, and those scandals have ranked near the top in all of tennis history. Here are 20 such moments that brought the game to a screeching halt and made the actual tennis secondary to the real story.

Mandryk: Moe taking on past NDP government record may be ill-advised .
What made Scott Moe such an effective campaigner during the 2017-18 Saskatchewan Party leadership race was his plain-spoken earthiness. For the most part, it’s a style that has served him well as Saskatchewan premier. Moe may not have the charisma of Brad Wall who guided the Sask. Party to power 13 years ago, but the current Sask. Party leader’s what-you-see-is-what-you-get approach is likely why he’s enjoyed remarkably high personal popularity and has a lot to do with why the Sask. Party is so far ahead in the opinion polls. After all, Saskatchewan elected populists like Tommy Douglas and Grant Devine long before the term became fashionable.
