ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) Billy Horschel hit every green in regulation on the way to a 3-under 67 and the lead at the US Open. Horschel's 1- under par for the two rounds in just his second try at an Open. He missed the cut as an amateur at Winged Foot in 2006. Horschel's showing at the tough Merion layout is just a continuation of some sharp golf for the 26-year-old. He's posted five top-10 finishes in his last seven events, including his first PGA Tour win at the Zurich Classic.

Donald was one of many golfers that had to complete the rain delayed first round early in the day Friday, making for a long day. He bogeyed two of the final five holes to shoot a 68 then headed right back for round two.
Overnight clubhouse leader Phil Mickelson still tops the leaderboard at 2-under par through 10 holes. The five-time Open runner-up bogeyed the first hole and has all pars on his card after that.
