Ardmore, Pa. • It looks good for Mike Weir, not so good for Jay Don Blake, after the Utah golfers were forced off the course Friday night by darkness midway through round two of the U.S. Open at Merion.
That means they'll go back out early Saturday morning to complete play, then find out whether they've made the cut and can keep going the rest of the weekend.
The 43-year-old Weir, who started off the day at 2-over 72 when he finally teed off Friday night after a delayed first round, would appear to be in good shape at 5 over through 10 holes. But Blake, who endured a miserable stretch of six bogeys and a double bogey over nine holes, is in trouble. He's 11 over through 12 holes, with the cut projected be either 8 or 9 over.
