2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard Update: Phil Mickelson Cutting The Cut Close

The second day of the 2012 U.S. Open is wrapping up after a wild afternoon of 18 holes for the world's best players. The state of Arizona has quite a few connections to this year's event, but none are more notable than Phil Mickelson. Unfortunately for the Arizona St. Sun Devil, he is expected to be right around the projected cut line of +7 or +8.

Mickelson shot six-over par on Thursday and followed that by shooting one-over on Friday, leaving him at +7 through 36 holes. The cut as of 6:20 p.m. MST is +8 so there's reason for hope, but it will all depend on how things shake out in the next hour or so.

The story of the day was 17-year-old Beau Hossler, who was atop the leaderboard for parts of the afternoon. He bogeyed three holes late though, moving him to +3 for the tournament. Tiger Woods shot an even par-70 on Friday after being one-unde on Thursday, tying him for the lead with David Toms and Jim Furyk.
