Scores of 66 early in the day were enough to lift Finau and Berger from a tie for 45th to a share of the lead on three over par but the USGA chief executive Mike Davis admitted that the course set up had been such that "well-executed shots were not rewarded and in some cases [were] penalised."
The field will hope for more equitable conditions today.
