Kevin Stadler didn't have much to smile about after a 7-over 77 in the first round of the 114th U.S. Open on Thursday.
But on Friday, Stadler had a tremendous bounce-back, firing a 2-under 68, which included this eagle hole-out on the par-4 13th hole:
An eagle on the 13th hole at Pinehurst No. 2 on Friday the 13th? Nice.
Through 36 holes, Stadler is 5-over 145. When he finished his second round, Stadler was tied for 79th. The top 60 and ties will advance to the weekend.
Even if he doesn't make the cut, Stadler will take a special memory away from Pinehurst.
