Shaun Micheel may have take a tumble after sharing the first-round lead. But he gave his ailing mother something to smile about on Sunday when he made a double eagle on the sixth hole.
Micheel used a 3-iron from 239 yards on the 523-yard hole. There’s only been one other double eagle in U.S. Open history – made by T.C. Chen on the second hole at Oakland Hills in 1985.
Chen used a 3-wood from 256 yards that day.
