Oklahoman’s in the Mix at the US Open
The 114th first round of the US Open is over with some golfers with Oklahoma ties sitting within striking distance of the lead.
Former Oklahoma State standout Rickie Fowler was the first one to hit Pinehurst No. 2 on Thursday. He finished at level par after shooting a 70. That’s good enough to be tied for 16th which is five shots back of leader Martin Kaymer.
Jimmy Walker, who was born in Oklahoma City, also shot an even par 70.
Former OSU golfer Bo Van Pelt is currently tied for 50th after shooting a 2 over 72.
The same can be said for Kevin Tway, son of Bob Tway. He ran into a little trouble on 15. His 2nd shot hit the flag stick, took a bad bounce and ended up in the sand. He would go on to bogey the hole.
Former Cowboy Hunter Mahan couldn’t get into the red firing a 4 over 74 which is tied for 88th.
2nd round coverage continues on Oklahoma’s NewsChannel 4 at 2pm on Friday.
