PGA Tour Brunch | R-2 | US Open
@PGATourBrunch Looks at Round 2 of the 2022 U.S. Open
BROOKLINE - Adam Hadwin recorded a 4-under (66), his lowest score in a major championship, and leads the U.S. Open by one stroke after 18 holes while Rory McIlroy, winner of last week’s RBC Canadian Open, stands T-2.
The last player to win on Tour and win a major the following week was, indeed, McIlroy, at the 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship the next weekend.
Five of the six players at T-2 or better (all but McIlroy) earned spots in the U.S. Open via Final Qualifying.
Defending champion Jon Rahm, 2022 PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas enter the second round T14 (1-under 69s)
FedEx Cup leader and World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler opened with even-par 70 (T-26).
