Marcus Fraser followed his opening 67 at the PGA Championship with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round.
Given his terrible form in recent weeks, Fraser was arguably the most surprising golfer on the early leaderboard at Oak Hill this week, but he showed today that he's here to contend. He offset three bogeys with four birdies to reel in another red number. At 4-under 136, he's five strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Fri, Aug 9, 2013 06:29:00 PM

Marcus Fraser submitted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the PGA Championship.

The Aussie has been mired in a slump since losing in a playoff at the Ballantine's Championship in late April. He's missed six of seven cuts and finished T54 at Muirfield. It appeared Oak Hill would treat him similarly today when he opened bogey-bogey, but he responded with bogey-free golf the rest of the way. He picked off five birdies, including on each of the two par 5s and signed his card sitting one off the clubhouse lead.

Marcus Fraser makes just his second appearance in the U.S. Open this week.

His only previous start was a respectable 45th at Oakmont in 2007. The Aussie is in the field this week as a result of his successful navigation of the qualifier in England at Walton Heath Golf Club. A runner-up at the Ballantine’s Open is his best European Tour finish of 2013.

By virtue of finishing second on the Order of Merit on the PGA of Australia, Marcus Fraser is now exempt into the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The top two in earnings receive exemptions into the limited field, no-cut tournment at Doral in March. The Aussie stormed home at the JBWere Masters with a 7-under-par 31-33=64 that included eight birdies to take second place. The six-figure payday moved him into position for the berth into the WGC where he'll be making his second appearance (T45, 2011).
