Braden Thornberry fared a lot better Friday at the U.S. Open. The Ole Miss junior fired 73 in the morning wave.

He had 3 birdies including a stellar approach on 10, the Olive Branch native would stick one to 3 feet.

The good news is Thornberry is +9 and ahead of 11 major champions. That includes names like Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, and Sergio Garcia. The bad news is that Braden missed the cut by 1 shot. Back to back bogeys on 8 and 9 sealed Thornberry's fate.

Dustin Johnson is the only player under par at Shinnecock Hills. The #1 player in the world is at -4 and a 4 shot lead heading to the weekend.
