One is in good position to make the cut, while the other will have his work cut out for him in today's second round of the U.S. Open.

That's how the two golfers with Utah connections stand after the first round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

Draper's Mike Weir stands in a tie for 31st place after firing a 2-over-par 73, while former BYU golfer Dean Wilson is back in a tie for 85th place after shooting a 76.

The field will be cut to the low 60 players plus ties, or all players within 10 shots of the lead after today's round.

Weir began with a bogey at the first hole but made a birdie-2 at the third hole before giving it back with a bogey at No. 4. After making the turn at 1-over 36, he had just one blemish on the back side, and it was a big one — a double-bogey 7 at the par-5 13th hole. However, he finished with a birdie at the par-5 18th hole for his 73.

Wilson could never get anything going Thursday and didn't have a single birdie. On the front nine, he bogeyed holes 4, 6 and 8 to turn at 38, then added bogeys at 14 and 17 on the back side.

Weir has made the cut in seven of his nine U.S. Opens with a best finish of a tie for third in 2003, while Wilson has made two of four U.S. Open cuts.
