Hadwin done, but Canadians Weir, Hearn still shooting at U.S. Open

Canadians Yip, Hughes, and Adam Hadwin all missed the cut, but Mike Weir and David Hearn will finish the 2013 Open in Pennsylvania.

Mike Weir



After two delayed, fractured first and second rounds, the U.S. Open’s weekend is opening up and two Canadians have made the cut: former Masters champion Mike Weir (+8) and David Hearn (+7).

The second rounds for both Weir and Hearn were delayed due to darkness, and they finished their first 36 holes on Saturday morning. Hearn birdied the 15th and 16th holes to finish with a 69 (-1) on the round and move to 7-over for the tournament.

Weir parred the 18th hole with a seven-foot putt and just made the cutline at 8-over.

Canadian amateur Mackenzie Hughes shot rounds of 75 and 78 to finish at 13-over. Ryan Yip also finished +13 after rounds of 76 and 77.

Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin finished at the bottom of the Canadian contingent, shooting an 81 and a 76 to finish 17-over.

————————————————————

For all the talk of Merion Golf Club being a shorter (and therefore potentially easier) course, it’s certainly shown its teeth. After two rounds, Americans Billy Horschel and Phil Mickelson have a share of the lead at 1-under, meaning anyone within five shots or more still has a shot at the season’s second Major.

Former World No. 1 Luke Donald is just one back at E and is playing with Mickelson and Horschel in Saturday’s final grouping.

Steve Stricker (E), Justin Rose (E), and John Senden (+1) will tee off in the day’s second-last group.

World No. 1 Tiger Woods is tied with World No. 2 Rory McIlroy at 3-over and four shots back.
