HEADING OFF IN SATURDAY'S 3:25 p.m. pairing at the U.S. Open are Kevin Na and Brandt Snedeker, both at 3 under par for the championship. Na is a notoriously slow player. Sneds plays fast, really fast. This pairing might not be so good for Brandt as he tries to close the gap with leader Martin Kaymer, who enters the third round at 10 under.

Na, playing in his fourth U.S. Open, shot 68 and 69 in the first and second rounds. Making his eighth appearance in the national championship, Snedeker fired 69 and 68. Snedeker has putted well, with just 56 putts through the first 36 holes.
