Martin Kaymer joins rare company to reach 10 under in U.S. Open

Martin Kaymer finds himself in rare company after two rounds of the 2014 U.S. Open.

With a second-consecutive round of 5-under 65 at Pinehurst No. 2, Kaymer posted a two-round total of 10-under-par 130 at the halfway mark of the national championship. That total, in and of itself, is a record, beating Rory McIlroy's 36-hole mark of 131 at through two rounds of the 2011 U.S. Open at a weakened Congressional Country Club.

The German also finds himself in the unique position of being one of six players to ever reach double digits under par at any point in a U.S. Open.

Here's the full list:

  • Dr. Gil Morgan, 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, par 72
  • Tiger Woods, 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, par 71
  • Jim Furyk, 2003 U.S. Open at Olympia Fields, par 70
  • Ricky Barnes, 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black, par 70
  • Rory McIlroy, 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club, par 71 (did it in a record 26 holes)

Of those five, only Woods and McIlroy finished the championship at double digits under par. Three of the five won the championship, including Woods, McIlroy and Furyk.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
