Live from the Bixby House: The Midpoint at the U.S. Open

Brendan and Andy check in at the midpoint of the national championship and discuss the work of the day, specifically Andy’s timing exercise of Bryson DeChambeau’s group late in the second round. We also review the leaderboard and play a little “pretender or contender” with some of the star names and not-so-popular names on the board. We then go over disappointing MCs and some unsurprising MCs. Andy rails against the par 71 setup at Pebble and we ponder just how much the number will move over the weekend, or if the current 9-under mark may come back over the final 36 holes. What kind of conditions can we expect and how far down the board do you go for realistic chasing options? Rickie’s big mitts, Reed’s club snap, and Phil and DJ’s course management also get reviews.
