U.S. Open 2014 leaderboard: Afternoon wave struggling to catch Martin Kaymer

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Some players are finding success in the afternoon at Pinehurst, but no one has been able to close in on Martin Kaymer

Pinehurst No. 2 is playing slightly easier on Friday than it did on Thursday, but the improved scoring conditions haven't helped the field chase down Martin Kaymer. Although a few players in the afternoon are in the red for the day, no one has approached Kaymer's round of 65. With the final groups of the day approaching the turn, Kaymer still holds a seven-shot lead.

Kaymer sits alone at 10-under with five players currently tied for second place at 3-under. That group includes Brandt Snedeker and Matt Kuchar, both of which are 2-under on the day. Kuchar is in the midst of another solid round with a pair of birdies and no bogeys. A day after carding six birdies, three bogeys and a double, Brandt Snedeker has settled down some. He's birdied four holes with his only dropped shots coming on a double bogey on No. 11. The 11th hole has been a tough one for Snedeker this week, playing it 4-over through two rounds. Kevin Na was briefly alone in second at 4-under before giving a shot back.

Phil Mickelson has run into trouble following a strong start. He was 2-under on the day through five holes. Three bogeys since, however, have dropped him to 1-over through 12. Mickelson has had issues on the greens with the flat stick continuing to be an issue. He's reverted back to a normal grip after putting with a claw grip on Thursday.

Rory McIlory started the day with a bogey to drop to 2-over, but has since rebounded with a pair of birdies to improve to 1-under on the round and even-par on the tournament. Here is a complete look at the leaderboard.
