After 75 years, the U.S. Open has returned to Los Angeles. Some of the world’s best golfers have already teed off at the Los Angeles Country Club, and the 123rd annual golf tournament is being broadcasted live on NBC and the USA Network and streaming live on Peacock.
What an exciting start it’s been to the 2023 U.S. Open, and the good news is that fans still have two days of pristine golf remaining to be played at Los Angeles Country Club. Record-low scores were the name of the game in the opening round, but LACC firmed up significantly making things much more difficult for players looking to make the cut. With Moving Day in progress, this is the final opportunity for golfers atop the leaderboard to make a play for lower numbers before the final 18 holes commence Sunday. Follow live U.S. Open leaderboard coverage and updates throughout Round 3.
Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy have stood out from the pack this week. Fowler set a U.S. Open scoring record at 130 through 36 holes with an absurd 18 birdies, four off the event record for most in an entire round. McIlroy, meanwhile, has dominated the front nine at LACC with 11 birdies across those 18 holes in his first two rounds. His 65-67 start marks his first major with two rounds that low since the 2014 PGA Championship; in fact, all three times McIlroy has scored 67 or lower in his first two rounds of a major, he’s ultimately lifted a trophy at the end of the event.
