Manchester, Missouri native golfer Scott Langley qualified for his second U.S. Open in 2012 on the strength of an outstanding qualifying performance, but his first round at the Olympic Club wasn't exactly the fairy tale that 2010 amateur performance was—he's currently tied at No. 93 after shooting a six-over 76. He'll come back Friday and attempt to avoid the cut starting at 2:30 PM.
Langley's appeared in three PGA events in 2012, making two cuts and earning $29,462, but his No. 16 finish at the U.S. Open back in 2010 remains his best finish to date. The Post-Dispatch has a good story on his return to major play after a rough acclimation to his professional golf career in 2011.
We'll follow Langley and the rest of the 2012 U.S. Open field all weekend on SB Nation St. Louis; for more information, check out the official U.S. Open leaderboard, which has live scoring updates, or follow along on our storystream. Or check out these videos from SB Nation Studios, which will, admittedly, probably be a little heavier on Tiger Woods than they are Scott Langley:
