ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) - Billy Horschel has taken the clubhouse lead in the second round of the U.S. Open.

Horschel hit all 18 greens in regulation while shooting a 67 Friday at Merion Golf Club. He is 1 under with a 139 total.

The 26-year-old Horschel, from Jacksonville Beach, Fla., missed the cut in his only previous U.S. Open, 2006, but recently won for the first time on the PGA Tour at the Zurich Classic.

Phil Mickelson held the solo lead for much of the afternoon, but he bogeyed consecutive holes on the back nine.

Steve Stricker and Justin Rose also were at 1 under as they played the back nine.

Tiger Woods is 4 strokes back plus under. Georgia's Bubba Watson and Tech's Matt Kuchar both tied at 54 at +7. 

Macon's own Russell Henley head a rough outing on Friday with seven bogeys and two double bogeys, finishing at 17 over.
