Topic - Ricky Barnes
The Quicken Loans National continues with the American Ricky Barnes in the top spot.
In the last threesome off the 10th tee Thursday morning, Chalmers' score surpassed that of Ricky Barnes, who held the lead for much of the morning at 4-under, and weathered a late challenge from Freddie Jacobson, who birdied four of his final seven holes to match Barnes.
Ricky Barnes of the United States has earned a last-minute place in the British Open field following the withdrawal of Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts.
The U.S. Open is a national championship. Halfway through, it's starting to feel a bit like a coronation.
"I don't look back on last year, but I like where I'm going lately," said Barnes, who won the U.S. Amateur in 2002 and finished second at the U.S. Open in 2009 but was in danger of losing his spot on tour at the end of last season. "The game has been trending in the right direction. [I've] been working hard. My caddie and I have been grinding, my short game is coming around, and that's kind of where I'm seeing a lot of the results."
