Back nine playing tougher

By Melanie Hauser, PGATOUR.COM
BETHESDA, Md. -- Here's an interesting twist: Of the players under par right now, only two of them -- Bud Cauley and Y.E. Yang -- started on the back nine.
Cauley, a former Walker Cupper, is playing in his first event as a professional and is 1 under through his first six holes.
Yang shot even par on the back nine then birdied his second hole to get into the logjam at 1 under.
And while we're at it, four major champions -- Louis Oosthuizen, Ernie Els, Davis Love III and defending champ Graeme McDowell -- are under par. Angel Cabrera, who won the U.S. Open in 2007 (and the 2009 Masters) is  at even.
