Golf greatest feuds? Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka have a long way to go.

  Golf greatest feuds? Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka have a long way to go. Brooks Koepka didn’t deliver the first eye roll in golf. Turns out PGA Tour history is rich in feud-inspired ridicule and rip jobs. Koepka’s disdain for Bryson DeChambeau is well-documented, the latest installment coming less than two weeks ago at the PGA Championship, when d uring a post-round Golf Channel interview Koepka rolled his eyes, lost focus and uttered obscenities as DeChambeau walked behind him. The video, which never aired and was never meant to, was leaked and posted to Twitter, where it went viral and led to a cascade of amusing memes.

Jon Rahm , Bubba Watson (-3) : An up-and-down start to the day for Rahm , who was the betting favorite prior to the tournament starting, finally leveled off Friday afternoon after holing out from the bunker on the par-4 14th hole. The only area of the game he lost strokes to the field on was his driver, which was Thursday (and typically is always) a T14. Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka , Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas (E) : DeChambeau, the 2020 U . S . Open winner, didn't have his best stuff in Round 1 but found some of his better form Friday with a 2 -under 69 to get to even on the tournament.

Will Brooks Koepka win another major this week? Can Jon Rahm win his first major? Our golf handicapper Brady Kannon is here to recap every round and give his best bets for the next day. Round 2 best bets . How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind. - - Bob Dylan. The morning wave of start times got underway at the 121st United States Open at 8:15 a.m. Pacific Time after a 90-minute fog delay on Thursday.

We're halfway home at the U.S. Open, and here's what we know: Jon Rahm remains a strong favorite to bring this home, but he's not alone. And leading the tournament on Friday doesn't necessarily give you the juice to win on Sunday. Here are the latest odds, via BetMGM.

With a second-round 70, Rahm tightened his grip on the favorite slot, as his odds dropped to +400 (bet $100 to win $400, or 4-1) from +550 Thursday and +900 pre-tournament. Xander Schauffele rode an even-par 71 to the second-best odds in the tournament, +700 down from +1800 pre-tournament.

Their status shows that sports books aren't quite sold on the two men at the top of the leaderboard. Co-leader Russell Henley has seen his overnight odds improve from +3300 to +1100. Sports books aren't quite so enamored with the story of 48-year-old co-leader Richard Bland, setting his line far lower at +3300.

US Open round two - England' s Bland sets clubhouse lead as Koepka heads out. The 2010 Open champion rolls in a perfectly-judged nine footer to finish level par for the day, which is the least he' s deserved. He was in with a shout of many more than just the two birdies he claimed today. It' s been a long day for the South African as he had to get up early to complete the last two holes of his opening round .

US Open round two - England' s Bland sets clubhouse lead as Koepka challenges. 3,4293,429. Rahm -3, Reed +3, Leishman +2 (F). Jon Rahm follows Jordan Spieth' s lead by finishing with a comfortable birdie on the 18th. A hard-fought 70 sees him improve to three under, putting the world number three very much in contention heading into the weekend. There should have been a birdie for Patrick Reed too, but a few agonising moments put a whole different complexion on his round of 73.

Matthew Wolff, who rode a -3 round to a tie for second, saw his odds jump from +6600 Thursday to +1000. Bubba Watson saw an even higher jump thanks to his -4 round, from +15000 all the way up to +2000. Collin Morikawa has seen his odds oscillate, from +2200 before the tournament to +10000 Thursday, and back to +2200 Friday after a strong rebound performance.

On the flip side, Brooks Koepka's struggles meant his odds rose from +750 Thursday to +1600 after Friday. Rory McIlroy's odds more than doubled, from +1400 to +3300. And Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama saw his championship chances vaporize and his odds to win with them, going from +1800 to +15000 over the course of the day.

Winners have historically come from high on the leaderboard at the halfway point of the U.S. Open, so if you're going to put some capital behind one of the leaders with longer odds, now would be the time to do it.

  ‘Rahm Emanuel Covered Up the Murder of My Son’: Chicagoans Seethe Over Looming Biden Ambassador Pick Increasingly concerned that former Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel is on the verge of being awarded a plum position in President Joe Biden’s administration, activists and relatives of victims of police violence in the city are publicly urging the president to slam the brakes on considering him for a high-profile ambassadorship. But some of Emanuel’s biggest Democratic critics are conspicuously silent in response to reports that he will be nominated as the U.S. ambassador to Japan, raising questions about whether they see a prominent posting abroad as worth internecine fighting.
