Nothing but the bottom of the cup! A collection of great shots from Pinehurst

Sure, Martin Kaymer is running away with the U.S. Open, but these fellas are trailing with style. Check out some of the impressive shots from Friday at Pinehurst, starting with Kevin Na's birdie hole-out on No. 8. Na would finish the day in a tie for third, seven strokes behind Kaymer.

Next up, Scott Langley uses all the cup in his approach shot, also on 8:

Langley finished the day at +3, good enough to make the cut.

Finally, check out this long-distance hammer-home shot from Ryan Moore:

That helped Moore finish at +4, also good enough to make the weekend. Just a dozen or so more shots like that, and these guys will be right on Kaymer's heels.
