Cornwall and in particular his home club Truro are very proud today after Rhys Enoch produced the second-best round of day two at the 119th US Open, as he hit a five under par 66 to make the cut at Pebble Beach.

The 30-year-old Welshman, who was an integral part of the Cornwall Men’s team in his formative golfing years, had hit 78 on the opening day and looked to be heading home after bogeying the first hole on day two.

But an eagle and three birdies on the front nine revitalised his fortunes and Enoch held his nerve to make day three.

Enoch will tee off in the third round at 15:47 BST, alongside former US Masters Champion Patrick Reed.

It is the second consecutive year that world number 358 Enoch has made the cut at a Major, having done so at the 2018 Open at Carnoustie, when he again played in a pairing with Reed.

Enoch's round was only bettered by Gary Woodland whose 65 gave the American the lead two shots ahead of England's Justin Rose.

The whole of the Duchy golfing scene will be wishing Rhys the very best when he tees off in round 3 later today.

"I just feel so much more comfortable out there. Making the cut at Carnoustie was the highlight of my career, but I hope to go better at Pebble Beach.I know if I play well I can be in the mix."
