Scores rose quickly at Winged Foot during the second round of the 2020 U.S. Open, but unfortunately for Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, they could not take advantage of a field that took several steps back. For the first time ever — over the 21 U.S. Opens the two have played since 1996 — both will miss the cut at the same U.S. Open.
Mickelson actually played better than a field average that swelled near 75 in Round 2, but his 79-74 left him 13 over and exiting on Friday evening at potentially the last U.S. Open of his career. Though the round is not officially over, the cut will likely land at 6 over. Mickelson will miss that mark by seven shots. The oft-tortured, six-time runner up barely squeezed into the field this year and might not qualify in 2021 at Torrey Pines. If he’s done, it’s an unceremonious exit.
