U.S. Open leaderboard: Martin Kaymer shoots 65 again, leads at 10-under

Sam Greenwood

For a second straight day Martin Kaymer made some U.S. Open history. He's running away from the field at Pinehurst.

No player had ever shot a round of 65 in a U.S. Open at Pinehurst before Thursday. Now, Martin Kaymer has done it twice. He followed an opening round 65 with another 65 on Friday to drop to 10-under and open an eight-shot lead.

While many have struggled to avoid the trouble Pinehurst No. 2 presents, Kaymer has had no such issues. He's dropped only a single shot through 36 holes to go along with 11 birdies. He turned in a clean card in the second round with five birdies and 13 pars. That isn't to say Kaymer played perfectly, he ran into some issues around the green but continually responded with an up-and-down. Kaymer was steady on the greens once again, calmly rolling in several par putts. Kaymer's back-to-back 65s allowed him to make a little U.S. Open history. His 130 score through 36 holes is the lowest 36-hole total in U.S. Open history, breaking Rory McIlroy's record of 131 from 2011.

Kaymer has distanced himself from the field, which remains relatively tightly bunched. Seven players are currently tied for second at 2-under with six others at 1-under. The group at 2-under includes Keegan Bradley who carded a 1-under 69 for the second straight day. Adam Scott rebounded nicely on Friday with a 3-under round of 67. He's even par for the tournament heading into the weekend.

Jason Dufner ran into trouble on his closing nine, with three bogeys on his final six holes. He finished with a 4-over round of 74 and at 6-over will likely be on the wrong side of the cut line. Bubba Watson and Carl Schwartzel also at 6-over and likely on the wrong side of the cut.
