Martin Kaymer sets US Open record at Pinehurst

PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) -- Martin Kaymer is playing a brand of golf rarely seen in the U.S. Open. It might even be enough for soccer-mad Germany to pay attention.


The other 155 players at Pinehurst No. 2 certainly are.


Kaymer set the 36-hole scoring record at the U.S. Open on Friday with another 5-under 65 -- this one without a single bogey -- to build a six-shot lead over Brendon Todd and leave the rest of the field wondering if the 29-year-old German was playing a different course, or even a different tournament.


Kaymer was at 10-under 130, breaking by one shot the record set by Rory McIlroy at rain-softened Congressional in 2011. He had an eight-shot lead when he finished his morning round. Todd made some tough par saves to keep bogeys off his card for a 67.
