— Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland shot 77 in the second round of the U.S. Open Friday at The Olympic Club, missing the cut by three strokes. The cut was at the two-round total of 148, and Woodland shot 74 and 77 on Thursday and Friday for a total of 151.

Woodland had seven bogies, one double bogie, two birdies and eight pars to make up his second-round 77. After starting the day tied for 52nd, Woodland slid to tied for 108th, mainly because of his six-over par front-nine 40.

That's just not a course for "bombers" like Gary. When Toms and Furyk are on top of the leader board (and Woods), you know if for straight hitters that can putt. As well as Tiger was playing, he should have went lower, with five on the short par four 7th and missed birdie putts on the par five 16th and 17th

Hey J-W Staff, I appreciate the reporting about Gary, but how about a little more. What's going on with his rehab and swing change? What are his thoughts on his performance? I wonder about these and other things as I see him appear to be struggling compared to last year.
