McIlroy takes 6-shot lead into US Open weekend

BETHESDA, Maryland— Christo Greyling and Adam Hadwin made it to the weekend of the U.S. Open because of a rain delay. Thanks to their late birdies Saturday morning, they get to stick around even longer.

Hadwin birdied the par-5 ninth hole for an even-par 71 to make the cut on the number at 4-under 146. Greyling birdied the eighth hole and hung on with a par to complete his 74 and make the cut on the number.


Both wound up making three birdies on their last four holes.

They were among 21 players who had to return to Congressional because a weather delay kept them from finishing Friday.


If making the cut was a personal triumph, winning the U.S. Open seemed to be out of reach.

This was Rory McIlroy’s show going into the final two days at Congressional, for he had a six-shot lead over Y.E. Yang.
