Gary Woodland fired a bogey-free, 6-under 65 in Round 2 of the U.S. Open to take a two-shot lead into the weekend.
The 35-year-old rode a smoking hot putter on Friday. He gained over four strokes with his flatstick, bolstered by a 51-foot birdie putt on his final hole to finish the day at 9-under.
Woodland became only the second player in the last 30 years to shoot a bogey-free 65 or better at Pebble Beach during the U.S. Open. Tiger Woods accomplished the feat in 2000.
Justin Rose held the clubhouse lead for most of the day at 7-under. He carded a 1-under 70 early Friday but later relinquished the top spot to Woodland.
Louis Oosthuizen sits alone in third at 6-under and three back of Woodland after shooting 70 in Round 2.
Here's how the top of the leaderboard stands after Round 2:
|Place||Player||To Par||R2 Score|
Dustin Johnson is lurking at 2-under. He ranks fourth in strokes gained: tee to green for the week, but 113th in strokes gained: putting.
