2011 U.S Open Leaderboard Update: Webb Simpson Shoots 66, Low Scores Seem To Be Available

The leaders will still not tee off for another thirty minutes or so, but it appears Friday evening's heavy rains have softened up the course, as players with early tee times are beginning to post impressive scores. Webb Simpson is in the clubhouse after shooting a 66 on Saturday, and now stands tied for eight on the leader board. Bill Haas was three under on the day, shooting a 68, and climbed to plus-1 for his Open.

No less than ten players still on the course are under par for the day, meaning Rory McIlroy might have a lot more competition today and Sunday than he would have liked or expected. Or, perhaps, if McIlroy is indeed ready to make "the leap", perhaps the youngster has a "moving day" round of 64 or 63 in him, giving him an insurmountable lead come Sunday. 

Below is the current leaderboard as, of 3:15 P.M. For full coverage of the leaderboard, click here.
