Collin Morikawa and Joel Dahmen are co-leaders at the 2022 U.S. Open after Friday’s second round.

Morikawa, a two-time major champion, led the round with a 4-under 66. Dahmen, who earned his first PGA Tour victory this season at the Corales Puntacana Championship in March, recorded a 2-under 68 with a nearly 60-foot birdie putt on No. 15. The pair will play in the final group Saturday.

Defending U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm sits one shot back of the leaders, along with 2011 winner Rory McIlroy and Hayden Buckley.

Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose, who entered Friday at 2-under, both struggled with second-round 3-over 73s, tied for 31st in the tournament.

Phil Mickelson's heavily-scrutinized week at the U.S. Open is coming to an earlier end than he may have expected after the 52-year-old failed to make the cut Friday.

Mickelson sat at 11 over after his 36th hole, a shaky showing that started with an opening-round score of 8 over on Thursday (his birthday, no less).

“I thought I was more prepared than I was,” Mickelson said. “The U.S. Open is the ultimate test. And you don’t really know where your game is until you get tested, and I thought I was a little bit closer than I was.”

Mickelson's week started with questions from the media about his involvement with the LIV Golf Tour and ended with the golfer's honest assessment of his performance on the greens.

“I really struggled with putting,” he said. “I’m struggling with the putter, last week and this week. I feel I’m certainly playing better than I’m scoring and I look forward to working on it.”

The legendary lefty's future in the PGA Tour may be shaky as he faces a suspension for his involvement with LIV. He will next dig into his bag at LIV Golf's second event in Portland, Oregon, later this month.
