Second round play at the US Open was shut down by darkness yesterday. When play was called the lead was held by Billy Horschel and Phil Mickelson at 1-under-par. The second round got a late start because the first round had to be completed earlier in the day. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are four back at 3-over.
