The U.S. Open continues into weekend play on Saturday, but it’s only going to get harder for the 62 golfers who managed to make the cut. That’s saying a lot, considering the cut line at the Winged Foot Golf Club was 6 over.
Consider this: Only six golfers have a score under par heading into Saturday’s competition, while only five have a score of par. That’s just how difficult this course is, and the USGA certainly didn’t make it any easier as the host of this major.
That said, we’ve seen plenty of excellent golf over the first two days of competition, including from competitors no longer in the field. Whether it’s beautiful approach shots, lag putts that turned into improbable birdies or eagles scored from the fairway, there has been plenty of highlight reel-worthy shots from the 2020 U.S. Open.
Golfers this weekend will likely need a few more of those incredible shots as play continues if they want to challenge for the championship. As of now, Patrick Reed has sole ownership of the No. 1 position at 4-under par, followed by Byrson DeChambeau, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Justin Thomas at 2-under.

12:32 p.m.: Disaster.
12:10 p.m.: Staying par on this course, in this tournament, is nothing to turn your nose up at.
Noon: Brian Harman with the incredible bunker shot. It’s play like this that separates these golfers from those who couldn’t make the cut.
11:50 a.m.: Shane Lowry would have preferred the eagle no doubt, but setting up for a very makeable birdie isn’t a bad consolation.
11 a.m.: Lucas Herbert with the excellent wedge to get into the hole — that’s extremely difficult in the rough with such a steep bank.
