U.S. Open - Round Two
Rory McIlroy at the 2024 U.S. Open

The 2024 US Open at Pinehurst No. 2 is turning out to be an eventful tournament for Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau. While McIlroy and DeChambeau are in T5 and T2 respectively after Round 2, they have been hitting the ball well off the tee. However, a 20-year-old amateur is beating them to it.

The 20-year-old amateur in question is Luke Clanton. At the 2024 US Open, Clanton has been outdriving Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau. In Round 1 of the tournament, Clanton outdrove McIlroy and DeChambeau with 336.7 yards compared to 336.1 yards (DeChambeau) and 328.3 yards (McIlroy).

DeChambeau outdrove Clanton in Round 2 with 333.3 yards compared to the latter's 325.9 yards. When compared overall, Luke Clanton is third on the list of the top 10 average driving distances over Rounds 1 and 2 at the 2024 US Open.
