10 things you need to see from first two rounds at U.S. Open

BY foxsports • June 19, 2015

Chambers Bay was kind to some, absolutely brutal to others over the first two days. While a few household names -- headlined by Masters champion Jordan Spieth -- find themselves near the top of the leaderboard, plenty of others -- including Tiger Woods -- will not be joining us for the weekend.

Of all the storylines that emerged over the opening rounds, none were as important as Jason Day. The Australian star suffed a dizzy spell and a scary fall on his final hole of the day, but he still managed to gather himself and finish his round at 2-under, just three shots off the leaders. We hope he's OK and able to play the weekend.

In case you missed anything from Thursday or Friday, here are 10 things you need to see.

1. A supercut of Tiger's struggles

Tiger Woods finished at an astonishing 16-over par, his worst 36 holes to par at a major ever. Here are the high(low?)lights of his two days:

2: Jordan Spieth is back in the hunt ...

Not that anyone on Earth thought this guy was a fluke, but the reigning Masters champion is right at the top headed into the weekend. Spieth shot a 3-under 67 Friday to get to 5-under. He'll play in the final group Saturday. Here's a look at his solid day:

3. ... But he does not like the 18th hole

Despite that success, Spieth had a bad time on the 18th hole -- which was his ninth of the day. The 18th is a flexible par 4/5 that was playing as a par four on Friday, and Spieth was none too pleased with the composition:

4. Patrick Reed's soaring eagle puts him at the top

A late mover to the top of the leaderboard, Reed vaulted into a tie for first place after burying this impressive eagle putt on the 12th on Friday. He'll be in the final group Saturday with Spieth:

A long iron into the cup for eagle. Kudos to Chris Kirk:

6. Phil has some fun with the drones

A drone camera was in Phil Mickelson's path, and Lefty taught it the lesson it deserves:

7. Everything looks better in super slo-mo

For the golf fan who thinks the game rolls by too quickly, here's a compilation of highlights in super slow motion. It's actually very cool:

8. A nicer moment for Jason Day

Long before his concerning moment on the final hole of his round, Day nailed this chip in and celebrated with gusto:

9. Henrik Stenson's fans know how to cheer

Just trust us and watch:

10. As close as we have to a hole-in-one so far

Graeme McDowell ... oh so close:

OK, Rickie Fowler was pretty close too:
