US Open reaction

Day one's awful weather may have disappeared, but it was still a tough day at the office for our US Open hopefuls at Merion.

The day started early, with the likes of Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods having to come back and finish off their first rounds before quickly heading out for their second bash at the Merion challenge.

The course was softened up by all the rain but any talk of a low score have fallen by the wayside by now and Billy Horschel's three-under 67 was the stand-out.

Still, there are 68 players still to complete their second round, including Ian Poulter who is just one shot off the pace.

Phil Mickelson

The five-time runner-up endured a tough day, especially on the greens, but managed to birdie his final hole just before the end of play to grab a share of the lead.

Adam Scott

The Masters champion was left sweating it out to see if he would make the cut after finishing seven-over after two rounds. The cut looks like being at eight-over so he could just sneak in.
