June 14: Korea's Noh Seung-yul and India's Shiv Kapur safely made it into the weekend rounds of the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 following the conclusion of the second round on Friday.
Noh, the youngest Asian Tour Order of Merit champion in 2010, carded three birdies against five bogeys for his two-day total of two-over-par 142 for tied 27th place while Kapur, making his U.S. Open debut, battled to a 70 which included three birdies and a costly triple bogey for a 143 total in joint 33rd position.
Asian Tour honorary member Ernie Els carded a 70 to lie a further stroke back in the year's second Major, which is currently led by Martin Kaymer of Germany on 130.
Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand carded a second straight 73 to agonisingly miss the halfway cut by one shot while China's Liang Wen-chong shot a 74 to miss the cut by two strokes. EurAsia Cup star Kim Hyung-sung also missed the cut along with compatriot Y.E. Yang.
Former Asian Tour winner Kevin Na stayed in contention with a second round 69 which left him in tied third place, seven shots behind leader Kaymer.
