Shinnecock Hills was more favorable in the second round than the first, but just barely.
A 1-under on the par-70 course was the best anyone could card Thursday, but that changed Friday, with Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka each turning in a 66.
Despite those scores, a 3-under day for Dustin Johnson gives him a comfortable four-stroke lead heading into Saturday. He is at 4-under on the tournament.
Meanwhile, it will be an early trip home for Jordan Spieth (9-over), Tiger Woods (10-over) and Rory McIlroy (10-over), who all missed the cut in Long Island, N.Y. this weekend.
