Only a few hours into the second round of the 2012 U.S. Open and the Olympic Club's Lakes course is playing harder than many had expected heading into the week. Or maybe it's playing just the way the USGA had wanted, almost torturously.
Here's a closer look at some of the pros who have really struggled so far this week:
Rory McIlroy: +9 thru seven holes
Luke Donald: +9 thru seven holes
Bubba Watson: +8 tees off at 1:18
Louis Oosthuizen: +8 thru three holes
Zach Johnson: +7 tees off at 1:25
Adam Scott: +6 tees of at 1:47
Phil Mickelson: +6 tees off at 1:18
These guys are going to have to get it together if they want to be around for the weekend, but it's not looking too good at this point.
