Spectator, 94, Dies at the United States Open –
ERIN, Wis. — A 94-year-old man watching the United States Open died Friday afternoon, according to the United States Golf Association.
He followed an opening 66 with a 73 to get to five under, three shots out of the lead with
the afternoon players still on the course, and ensured of a late tee time Saturday.
“And I’m sure it will be rough this weekend.”
The top of the leaderboard is bunched up, with four players tied for the lead at seven under and three more a stroke behind, including Lovemark.
ROOKIE SHINES Xander Schauffele, a PGA Tour rookie, spent part of Friday’s second round sharing the lead.
“I think me being a little naïve has almost prepared me for this situation,” said Schauffele, whose name is pronounced SHAU-fah-leh.
Two years ago, Lovemark tied for 18th at Chambers Bay in the Open debut for the Washington State course.
Friday’s second round was being contested under bright sun and little wind, with temperatures in the mid-80s.
