Let's begin the Saturday edition with players who managed to make the cut and are contending at the 112th U.S. Open.

@Graeme_McDowell Another hard day out there. I'd be lying if I told you that I'm enjoying myself, but where else on the golfing planet would I rather be?

@JohnPetersonLSU Leggo @davidtomsgolf!!! Bring your purp, bring your gold!! #geauxtigahs

@alpresnell Started to get a bit nervous coming in, but overall, I am very happy with the outcome. Looking forward to the weekend!

Rickie Fowler struggled on Friday, but found the weekend.

@RickieFowlerPGA Got a tee time tomorrow...time to go make the best of my weekend #nothingtolose #goodroundwillgoalongways

Matteo Manassero was one of few to card an under-par round on Friday.

@ManasseroMatteo Thanks everybody !! It feels great to break par in a course like this. #USopen

Morgan Hoffmann has two more rounds to play at The Olympic Club.

@Morgan_Hoffmann Thanks everyone! Pumped to be playing the weekend! Just gunna go out there and have fun with a smile on my face and see where it brings me

Robert Karlsson finds his place on the leaderboard a little disorienting.

@robertkarlsson Weird to be plus 5 and be 28th! Welcome to the US Open ;-)

Newly minted pro Hunter Hamrick shot 67 for the round of the day on Friday. Not bad for his pro debut.

@William_HH I can't decide which was harder playing that course or the drive back to the hotel.

On the flip side, here's some reaction from or about players who failed to make the cut.

@bubbawatson Missed the cut, but my share of 'Golf Boys' iTunes money came in $129.11 for charity!! #GolfBoys

Aron Price offers thoughts on cut casualty and world No. 1 Luke Donald.

@aronpricePGA L. Donald has some striking similarities to C. Wozniacki. World #1, always up there in regular events, struggle in majors. Watch out Rory...

Joe Ogilvie has a lot of respect for 14-year-old Andy Zhang and his effort these last two days.

@ogilviej I can't fathom being 14 years old and playing in a US Open, zero chance I would have broken 100. I may have shot 200 and quit.
