Adam Scott fires best US Open round

WORLD number one Adam Scott has made a move up the leaderboard late in the second round of the US Open Championship in North Carolina but German Martin Kaymer continues to dominate.

The Gold Coast golfer fired his career best US Open round, a three-under 67, to claw back to even par for the championship and a tie for 17th.

But Kaymer carded his second consecutive 65 to move to 10-under par, currently good enough for a six shot lead over Americans Kevin Na and Brendon Todd.


Aaron Baddeley and Jason Day are the next best Australians at one-over for the championship, currently tied 23rd.
