US Open Second Round: LIVE leaderboard and updates from Pinehurst No.2

Welcome to live golf scores, updates and commentary from the second round of the 2024 US Open at Pinehurst No.2.

Tiger Woods missed the cut and then said that 'may or may not be his last US Open' on day two at Pinehurst No.2 in North Carolina.


Perhaps Woods' comment was just in frustration, we'll have to wait and see whether he decides to peg it up at Oakmont in 12 months time. 

Woods, 48, slumped to a lacklustre 3-over 73 to miss the cut by two shots on 7-over par. 

The 15-time major champion has played in just four tournaments this season, with his results now reading: WD-60-MC-MC. 

At the top of the board, Ludvig Aberg (69) leads the way on 5-under par. 

Patrick Cantlay (71), Bryson DeChambeau (69) and Thomas Detry (67) are locked just one shot back on 4-under par. 

Rory McIlroy slipped back but still very much remains in the hunt to land a fifth career major title and first in nearly 10 years. 

McIlroy, who last tasted major victory at the 2014 PGA, carded a lacklustre 2-over 72 to fall to 3-under par alongside Tony Finau (69) and Matthieu Pavon (70).

Former Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama (66) is a further shot back on 2-under par.

US Open Second Round Leaderboard
Ludvig Aberg-5
Bryson DeChambeau-4
Thomas Detry-4
Patrick Cantlay-4
Rory McIlroy-3
Tony Finau-3
Matthieu Pavon-3
Hideki Matsuyama-2

Elsewhere, PGA champion Xander Schauffele carded a solid 69 to move himself into the red on 1-under par alongside Tyrrell Hatton (71), Tom Kim (68), Akshay Bhatia (71), Tim Widing (68) and Corey Conners (70). 

It was a day to forget for runaway World No.1 Scottie Scheffler, who posted a rare 4-over 74 to fall back to 5-over par.

But the runaway World No.1 narrowly made the cut.

He will be looking to take advantage of fresh greens and make his move up the board early on Saturday.

Last US Open for Tiger?!

Tiger Woods just told reporters that 'may or may not be the last US Open' for him after he missed the cut following rounds of 74 and 73. 

Woods finished the week on 7-over par and two shots outside the cut mark. 

Let's hope that was just frustration rather than something the 48-year-old is seriously considering ahead of Oakmont in 12 months time. 

Woods is expected to play in The Open at Royal Troon in Scotland next month.

Molinari +5 (F)

Francesco Molinari makes an ace at his last hole of the day, the ninth, to make the weekend at the 2024 US Open. 

Unbelievable scenes. 

Tiger finishes with a par

Woods +7 (F)

That's a wrap for the 2024 US Open for Tiger Woods.

Rounds of 74-73 mean he will miss another cut in a major. 

We'll get some reaction from Tiger very soon. 

Cantlay bogey

Cantlay -4 (16)

Cantlay gave himself too much to do at the 16th after finding the waste area with his approach. 

He did the right thing and gave himself an uphill putt, but it drifts by. 

Ludvig Aberg still leads by one over Matthieu Pavon. 

Woods needs a closing eagle

Woods +7 (17)

Any chance of Woods making the cut were dashed with a lazy swing on 17. 

He found the bunker with his tee shot but splashes out to a gimme. 

Tiger needs a two up 18... 

Aberg shows nerve

Aberg -6 (15)

Incredible from the Swede. 

His tee shot at the par-3 15th leaves him some 60 feet. 

He two-putts for par and smiles at his caddie Joe Skovron. 

Why wouldn't he be happy with that?

Woods bogey

Woods +7 (16)

Woods' effort from off the green is dismal. 

Truly, a mental error at the worst possible time. 

He walks off with a bogey and needs to birdie the final two holes to make the cut. 

Mightily unlucky for Woods

Woods +6 (16*)

Woods misses the fairway left again and plays a high draw to a back left pin. 

He asks for his golf ball to land softly. 

It does, but these greens are rapid and it trundles off. 

Work to do to save par now. 

Leaderboard update
As it stands:

-6 Aberg (14)

-5 Cantlay (14), Pavon (13*)

-4 DeChambeau (69), Detry (67), Finau (14)

-3 McIlroy (72)

Finau and Aberg matching each other

Finau -4, Aberg -6 (14)

Aberg has a chance to move within one and he rolls it close but ends up settling for par. 

Can Aberg extend his lead again? Nope. It's inches short. 

Another missed chance for Tiger

Woods +6,  Zalatoris +7, Fitzpatrick +4 (15)

Woods sets up a birdie chance at the par-3 15th. 

He seemed to judge that one perfectly and even went for the early walk-in. 

But no!

It stays ups. 

Pars all around. 

Three to go for Tiger. 

Missed cut incoming?

Theegala on a tear

Theegala +2 (12*)

Sahith ended day one on seven over. 

But he's got the best round going for today. 

He's five under for the round... 

Another par for Woods

Woods +6, Fitzpatrick +4, Zalatoris +7 (14)

Tiger's tee shot finds the waste area, but he gives himself an outside look for birdie. 

But the 15-time major champ misses on the high side...

Cantlay moves back to within one

Cantlay -5 (13)

Cantlay is fairly conservative with his approach into the 13th, leaving himself 19 feet for birdie. 

He hits his putt with perfect speed and it finds the centre of the cup. 

Don't forget about Tony Finau

Finau -4, Aberg -6 (12)

They're dropping in from everywhere in this group. 

Finau jars one from 36 feet to move to four-under. 

Aberg takes two-shot lead

Aberg -6 (12)

The Swede is enjoying his maiden US Open. 

He's just taken a two-shot lead at the summit, courtesy of holing a 21 footer for birdie at the 12th. 

Tiger misses great chance

Fitzpatrick +4, Woods +6, Zalatoris +7 (13)

Tiger sets up a glorious birdie chance. 

The golf great gives this one his full attention but it grazes the right edge. 

Can he find a birdie? 

Cantlay bogey

Cantlay -4 (12)

The American made a complete mess of the 12th. 

His tee shot finds the wasteland and he finds the scrub again with his approach. 

His lie there was horrific and he thinks long and hard about what club to use. 

Wedge? Hybrid? 

He opts for the iron and jabs it, but his golf ball travels a few yards. 

His chip leaves him with work to do to save bogey, which he does.

That could've been worse, in truth. 

Patrick Cantlay's lie
Patrick Cantlay's lie
Brooks triple

Koepka +4 (11*)

You don't see this very often. 

Koepka three-putts from three feet. 

Where did that come from? 

He's got work to do to make the cut now. 

Tiger moves outside the cut line

Woods +6 (12)

That was poor from Tiger. 

He misses the green from 170, then smashes his putt from the first cut way past the hole.

Tiger's par attempt never troubled the hole and it means he now needs one birdie over his final six holes. 

Not to mention no more dropped shots, which is hard to do around here. 

Cantlay moves back into a share of the lead

Cantlay -5 (11)

Some shot from Patrick Cantlay at the par-4 11th. 

He's got five foot for birdie. Can he make it?

Of course. 

That was much needed after a spell where he looked a tad uncomfortable. 

Another par for Woods

Fitzpatrick +4, Woods +5, Zalatoris +7 (11)

Tiger gives himself a look at birdie from 17 feet. 

But he gives it too much juice and it races by far more than he'd like. 

Still, he holds his nerve to sink his part putt. 

Fitzpatrick matches his score, while Zalatoris drops another after a poor approach. 

Tiger finds the fairway at the next, but misses the green with his approach. 

More work to do... 

Bogey for Koepka

Koepka +1, Morikawa +3 (11*)

Koepka can't save his par. 

How will he respond now? You'd bet this will only fire him up. 

Brooks Koepka is raging

Koepka E, Morikawa +3 (10*)

Brooksy is fuming here. 

His ball rolls into a bunker at the second and it's settles in a part that isn't raked properly. 

Koepka can be heard telling an official that someone needs to be held accountable. 

Still, he manages to keep his cool and splashes out to seven feet. 

Garcia going the wrong way

Garcia +1 (11*)

Sergio takes his score out of the red numbers after his awful tee shot finds the native area. 

With his second, he found the wiry rough once again. 

His third comes up short of the green. 

In the end, Garcia has an 11 footer for his bogey, but he misses.
