  Patience, pitching and big drives put DeChambeau in position Bryson DeChambeau held off on shakes and steaks to work on pitches and patience. All that work from the night before made him look like a genius come Friday. With the wind kicking up and the temperature dropping at Winged Foot, DeChambeau was one of the very few to conquer the U.S. Open-like conditions that finally showed up for the second round. He shot 2-under 68 to reach the halfway point at 3-under 137, one of only five players in red numbers with the afternoon starters about halfway through their rounds.

Bryson DeChambeau has moved into the lead at the U.S. Open.

DeChambeau birdied the fourth hole and is one of only two players under par for the day as the winds picked up at Winged Foot. Overnight leader Matthew Wolff was 2 over, picking up his second bogey on No. 5 to drop into second place at 3 under.

Even without hostile NY crowds, this US Open is tough enough

  Even without hostile NY crowds, this US Open is tough enough It’s rare when fans wind up rooting for the golf course, even one as majestic as Winged Foot, but suddenly that’s a viable option. Maybe because the two players atop the leaderboard heading into Round 3 at the U.S. Open are not exactly — how to put this? — the most likeable guys in the game. Patrick Reed, who leads at 4-under 136, has been hounded by cheating allegations since college. They spilled out in public last December after he was slapped with a two-stroke penalty for intentionally (Reed denied that part) improving his lie in a waste bunker at the World Hero Challenge.

It was an ugly start to the final round for Rory McIlroy and Harris English.

McIlroy needed four putts from just off the front of the first green en route to a double bogey.

English hit an errant tee shot and, even with the help of marshals surrounding the fairway, could not find his ball in the three-minute limit. He had to go back to the tee box and re-tee, and from there, he also made double.

McIlroy is now at 3 over and English is at 2 over. Leader Matthew Wolff is at 5 under and started his round with a drive that hit the fairway. He hit only two all day Saturday over a round of 65.

Column: No fans could be advantage for Wolff in US Open

  Column: No fans could be advantage for Wolff in US Open Matthew Wolff deserved some cheers for the way he picked apart Winged Foot on Saturday afternoon to move into the lead of the U.S. Open. Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau deserved something, too, and rowdy New York fans would have been sure to give it to them had they been allowed to be there to watch. They weren’t, of course, and the Open suffered because of it. So, likely, did the TV ratings, which already figured to take a hit because Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were long gone. No stars. No buzz. No fun, unless you like watching scenes of players studying maps on the greens like they were preparing for the invasion of Normandy.

US Edition. Bryson DeChambeau dominated Winged Foot and the entire U . S . Open field to win the toughest test in golf by six strokes. Heading into the weekend, there were questions about whether or not DeChambeau 's game could translate to the test of the U . S . Open .

With that, DeChambeau swung from the heels and ripped a 296-yard drive – into the wind. DeChambeau has a major, and the Bryson DeChambeau experiment gets more interesting by the day. Get the latest happenings on TOUR with WiretoWire. Sign up for WiretoWire newsletter.

While the leaders are warming up at Winged Foot, the U.S. Open's lone remaining amateur is done with his round.

John Pak, a senior at Florida State who grew up not far from Winged Foot, shot 4-over 74 to finish the tournament at 18-over 298.

Matthew Wolff has an afternoon tee time and will start at 5-under par, with a two-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau on a brisk, breezy day at Winged Foot.

The 21-year-old Wolff is trying to become the youngest U.S. Open winner since Bobby Jones in 1923. DeChambeau is hoping to add the U.S. Open title to his U.S. Amateur title in 2015. The only other player to begin the day under par was 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. He's at 1 under.

Also in the mix are Xander Schauffele, Harris English and Hideki Matsuyama, who all begin the day at even par.

The lowest score of the early starters belongs to Shane Lowry, who shot 2 over.

Analysis: DeChambeau charts path with new methods, hard work .
MAMARONECK, N.Y. — The road to his U.S. Open title might have been tougher than anything Bryson DeChambeau faced at Winged Foot. And there were plenty of bread crumbs along the way. It was just under a year ago that DeChambeau tied for fourth in his final PGA Tour event of 2019, and upon leaving for a two-month break he said with a grin and a measure of mystery: “I'm going to come back next year and look like a different person. You're going toAnd there were plenty of bread crumbs along the way.
