The 2024 U.S. Open has arrived with two days of pristine golf remaining at one of the nation's most iconic courses, Pinehurst No. 2. It has been an arduous journey thus far for the star-studded field with it only taking a couple minor mistakes for some large numbers to pop on the leaderboard. The action in North Carolina continues Saturday with the field competing to win the third major of the year. The USGA has put a major-record purse of $21.5 million on the line at the U.S. Open with $4.3 million set to go to this year's national champion.

The three-horse race once expected to lead the U.S. Open -- Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele and Rory McIlroy -- is down to one who remains in contention for the national championship. McIlroy sits two shots back of the lead while Scheffler barely snuck inside the cutline with Schauffele largely out of contention. Rory is seeking his first major in a decade, but he's got literal and figurative hills to climb in order to get it done.

Out in front is 24-year-old Ludvig Åberg, who has parlayed a terrific performance at the last Ryder Cup into a tremendous debutant season as a major championship competitor. Fresh off a solo 2nd finish at the Masters and a missed cut at the PGA Championship, Åberg has tamed Pinehurst better than anyone else in the field. He sits at 5 under, one clear of Bryson DeChambeau, 18-hole co-leader Patrick Cantlay and Thomas Detry.

Given how much talent in the field, whoever ultimately prevails at Pinehurst will surely earn the trophy and a record $4.3 million winner's share out of the prize pool. Follow the action live all day Saturday with 2024 U.S. Open leaderboard coverage right here on CBS Sports.
