UCLA freshman Patrick Cantlay and former UCLA All-Americans Kevin Chappell and Brandt Jobe will almost certainly make the cut at the 111th U.S Open at Congressional Country Club.

In Friday's second round, Cantlay fired a four-under par 67 to move to even par 142 for the championship, currently tied for 15th place. Following Friday's round, the field will be cut to the top 60 players including ties for the third and fourth rounds.

After posting a 75 (+4) in the opening round, Cantlay began the day with three straight pars before three-putting and making a double-bogey 6 at the fourth. He recorded three more pars, made his first birdie of the day at the eighth, then parred the ninth for an outward 37 (+1).

At that point, he was five-over for the tournament through 27 holes.

He began the inward nine with a birdie at the treacherous par 3 10th -- his second birdie there in two days -- then he birdied the 11th and 12th to get to two-under for the day, two-over for the tournament. He posted pars on the next three holes, then birdied the 16th and 17th, and made par at the 18th for a back nine score of 30 (-5). His 67 was tied for the second best score of the day to that point, right behind the leader Rory McIlroy, who posted a 66 (-5) in the second round.

"I started off really quick," said Cantlay after his round on Friday. "I made like a 25, 30-footer on 10, and then I rolled it from the off green -- maybe 45 feet -- rolled that one in on 11, and hit it close on 12. So I got off to a really quick start and coasted in."

Chappell also fired a 67 (-4) in the second round and was at 143 (+1) tied for 26th for the championship.

Play was suspended late Friday afternoon and Jobe had one hole to play. He was one-under par for the round and for the tournament, tied for eighth place.
