The 121st United States Open Championship is taking place June 17–20 at Torrey Pines (South) in San Diego, California.
Raise your hand if you had a guy named Bland sharing the 36-hole lead on your U.S. Open bingo card. The 48-year-old Englishman -- first name, Richard -- won the first tournament of a not-so-distinguished European Tour career at the British Masters just last month to snap on 0-for-447 streak and earn an invitation to Torrey Pines. Next, he followed up his opening-round 67 with a 70 on Friday, sharing the top spot on the leaderboard with the slightly-less-improbable Russell Henley at 5 under.
England's Richard Bland, 48, is tied with American Russell Henley heading into the third round of the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
