Horschel holds 1-shot lead at rainy, ‘brutal’ Open

DENVER – Billy Horschel shot a 68 in Friday’s rain-soaked second round to seize a one-stroke lead at 8-under 132 at the US Open, which has seen torrential downpours render the course at the Country Club “brutal.”

“I think it was a great day for us to get a round in. Obviously it was brutal out there, but we got er’ done,” Horschel said.

Horschel, who was tied for the lead after an opening 64, birdied two of his first four holes but bogeyed the eighth. He closed with a birdie on the ninth to take a one-shot edge over Scottie Scheffler, the world number one, and Mito Pereira.
