Mason misses weekend cut of U.S. Open

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The only player with Hawaii ties has been eliminated from the U.S. Open.

University of Hawaii Hilo grad Nick Mason missed the weekend cut after failing to place in the top 60.

Mason wrapped round one on Thursday with 78 strokes, eight over par.

In round two, a 75 stroke finish landed the Leilehua alum five over par and 10 off the lead.

Not enough to earn a top spot, the showing sends Mason home.

2012 Masters Tournament winner Bubba Watson also found himself on the wrong side of the cut line after finishing with 77.

Martin Kaymer continues to lead the scoreboard after counting 65 strokes in both the first and second rounds. He will go in to round three 10 under par.

Competition in Pinehurst gets underway tomorrow.
