Karlsson riding momentum

Robert Karlsson’s posted his best finish of the season – and a career-best on the PGA TOUR – when he lost to Lee Westwood in a playoff at the St. Jude Classic presented by Smith & Nephew on Sunday.

The Swede continues to build on that momentum at the U.S. Open, too.

He just birdied the sixth and seventh holes to move to 2 under, although he gave a shot back on the next hole. So Karlsson is one stroke off the lead held jointly by Edoardo Molinari, Soren Kjeldsen and David Toms.

Contending at the U.S. Open is no surprise for Karlsson, though. He tied for  fourth in the major in his last appearance in 2008 before he was sidelined with serious eye problems that only recently have been regulated. – Helen Ross
