HEATH Slocum gave himself a nice Fathers Day gift with a six-under 65 on Sunday, the best score in a US Open since Vijay Singh shot 63 in the second round in 2003.
That was obviously one of the better rounds Ive ever played, Slocum said after making six birdies and no bogeys.
I hit the ball pretty good at times, but I kept it out of bad trouble. And I made a lot of putts today.
Slocum was in a good mood, in part because he was thinking about his six-month-old daughter, Stella.
It was just a lot of fun out there I was enjoying myself, a good, solid frame of mind. I went out and had fun and played well.
Slocum tied for ninth at four-over 288, giving him an exemption into next years Open. AP
