Masters champion and top-ranked Scottie Scheffler shot 3-under 67 to join Rory McIlroy and four others in the lead at the U.S. Open.
Also tied for the top spot at 3 under are players ranked 130, 371, 445 and 592. They are Joel Dahmen, Nick Hardy, Callum Tarren and David Lingmerth.
Hardy shot 2-under 68 to take his place at the top of the leaderboard.
The other three players and McIlroy, who is ranked third, had afternoon tee times at The Country Club, where there was a 70% chance of thunderstorms.
Scheffler’s 67 in the morning was highlighted by a hole-out from around 60 yards on the par-5 14th for eagle.
Scheffler’s buddy, Sam Burns, also shot 67 to draw within one shot of the lead.
Scheffler, the reigning Masters champion, hit a pitch shot from about 60 yards out of the deep rough that went in for a 3. Then Koepka knocked in a 14-foot putt.
Scheffler’s eagle put him at 2 under for the tournament, one shot behind five players tied for the lead, including M.J. Daffue, who had been at 6 under before making three bogeys on his back nine.
