Choi trails by seven at US Open

  • SHARE
June 15: Asian Tour honorary member K.J. Choi of Korea posted a second round six-over-par 76 to trail American clubhouse leaders Billy Horschel and Phil Mickelson by seven shots after play at the US Open was suspended due to darkness on Friday.
Choi, who has won six times on the region’s premier Tour, returned to complete his remaining 10 holes from his first round where he signed for a 70.
He then headed out to the Merion Golf Club shortly after where he marked his card with six bogeys, a double-bogey and two birdies for a two day total of six-over-par 146.
Asia’s first Major winner, Y.E Yang, also a honorary member of the Asian Tour, is two-over through 13 holes while Sweden’s Rikard Karlberg, a two-time Asian Tour winner, looks likely to make the early exit as he is seven-over with one hole to play.
Three-time Order of Merit winner, Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand, Korea’s Bae Sang-moon and Japan’s Yoshinobu Tsukada did not make the cut after they posted scores of 74, 80 and 74 respectively.
Ends.
