Round 2 is Underway at the US Senior Open

Round 2 is Underway at the US Senior Open

By Emily Szink. CREATED Jul 12, 2013

Round 1 is in the books at the US Senior Open,and today starts a brand new day of golf and fan fun.   

There was lots of sun yesterday and some great play, and the same thing is expected today.  The thousands of spectators that will come out and bear the heat are in for a treat.  A record seven players are tied for first place after the first round. 
Popular fan favorite Fred Funk is one of the seven golfers sitting pretty at three under. 
Funk previously won the tournament in 2009 and was the runner-up last year so he is looking to add another championship to his name. 
 With so many players tied for first and a handful right behind them also carding scores under, spectators have definitely gotten their money's worth at the Omaha Country Club.  
 The fans have also come out in droves.  More than 24,000 people enjoyed round one festivities yesterday.
