After Day 2, Phil Mickelson and Shigeki Maruyama are tied for the lead at -6. Most of the big names appear in contention: Retief at -4, Ernie at -3, Vijay at -2. Some others are having great tournaments: Jeff Maggert at -5, Fred Funk and Angel Cabrera at -4, and Corey Pavin at -2. Tiger’s at +1. Full scores here.

I watched Phil’s 2nd round and he’s playing extremely in control of all of his shots. He looks solid.

So one thing the USGA and tournaments officials are wondering in their prayers: where did the wind go? Shinnecock Hills hasn’t “defended” itself yet. But who knows when the forecast will be for gusting winds. If the wind doesn’t show up, then the leading scores will stay well under par. That’s OK, but it would sure make this U.S. Open a tad less interesting.
