UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) - A glance at Friday’s second round of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay:

Leading: Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, tied at 5-under 135.

Just behind: Dustin Johnson and Branden Grace are a stroke behind at 4 under. Four others are another shot back.

Where’s Tiger? Tiger Woods missed the cut after shooting 16-over 156. Only three players were worse than the three-time Open champion.

Also missing: Defending champion Martin Kaymer and two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson also missed the cut. So did Rickie Fowler and former champion Graeme McDowell.

Noteworthy: Spieth, who won the Masters, would be halfway to the Grand Slam should he win. No one has ever won the modern Grand Slam.

Key stat: Of the 16 players who go into the weekend under par, only Spieth has won a major title.

Quoteworthy: “It’s pretty much like putting on broccoli.” - Henrik Stenson on the greens at Chambers Bay
