Martin Kaymer cooled off from his record-setting pace on Saturday. He missed a few fairways, putted off a green and made a handful of bogeys. He even took an unplayable before shooting 72. At times, it looked as if the wheels were coming off. At the end of the day, the soft-spoken Germans lead is only one less than when he started. Clearly, he is in control of this U.S. Open. "Two over par is not as bad as it looks on the scorecard," Kaymer said of his score that came on a day when just two players found red figures. After missing just three fairways all day, he missed that many in the first five holes. One errant drive found a nest of pine straw from which he was forced to take a drop and ended up sinking an 18-foot putt for bogey, his second in four holes. Another drive ended up in the native area and, after NBC announcer Roger Maltbie told viewers Kaymer would have almost no shot, he put it to five feet and made eagle. His lone birdie of the day came on the final hole. After watching Kaymer cruise over the first 36 holes, the United States Golf Association clearly didnt want to have to re-write the record books anymore and so the pins were tucked in some near-diabolical spots and the greens rolled firm. Only Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton managed sub-par rounds, both 67s. Fowler knows that reeling in the leader will be a near-impossible task; however hell still put the ball in the ground on Sunday. Crazy things seem to happen in majors. "I can put myself in contention with the rest of the group, and see what Martin does," he stated. "If he goes out and posts double digits, its going to be impossible for us to catch him. Its like a second tournament going on. See what Martin does. Hes obviously on top of his game and playing well." Comptons spot is all the more remarkable considering he is playing with his third heart. The player who won the Order of Merit on the Canadian Tour back in 2004 has undergone two transplants, the last one in 2008. "I think its very special," said Compton of his position. "Im just happy to be able to play golf. But to play at this high level and in such a big tournament, it is something that I carry with me." They are the closest to Kaymer although it must seem a long way back with just 18 holes to go. Playing catch-up on this golf course, with this difficulty is not easy. Now it is up to Kaymer to finish things off. "Im looking forward to see how I feel, how I react to certain situations," he said. "Anything can happen. I can lead by seven or eight shots after nine holes. I can be down to all-square. So it will be an exciting round. For me, personally, it will be interesting how I handle it." A win would push Kaymer back into elite territory. The group of people who have won a major is small enough, but the multiple major winners club is even more exclusive. After his first major, Kaymer spent years re-building his swing for moments such as these. Sunday he will get a chance to see if it will hold up under the toughest test in the game.

Newly signed veteran Seneca Wallace is going to have to brush up on the playbook in a hurry to get ready to back up Aaron Rodgers for Sundays season opener in San Francisco. Theres a new third quarterback in Titletown, too, after Scott Tolzien was signed to the practice squad Monday. Both quarterbacks just happened to be with the 49ers before getting picked up by the Packers. How convenient. "I think any time players are (from) a former organization, theres always (a thinking that) immediately theyre going to tell you everything about the 49ers," coach Mike McCarthy said. "Scott and Seneca both are more focused on getting ready for the game so they definitely can give you insight." More so Tolzien than Wallace. Tolzien was a backup the last two years for the 49ers, but never played in a game. Wallace was only in San Francisco for a week this preseason, competing for a backup job behind Colin Kaepernick. But its Wallace whos going to be Rodgers understudy. Its quite a turnaround from last week, when he was languishing behind Kaepernick, Colt McCoy and B.J. Daniels on the 49ers depth chart. When asked then, coach Jim Harbaugh said Wallace was "not going to continue to play football," lending to speculation to whether Wallace decided to retire. Not so, Wallace said Monday after his first Packers practice. "No, no. Its just miscommunication between me and Harbaugh. We talked about it. I called him to communicate that to him," Wallace said. "It was just pretty much miscommunication between me and him." After being drafted by the Seahawks in 2003 out of Iowa State, Wallace went on to play seven seasons in Seattle. Hes also had stops with the Browns and Saints. In 21 starts and 62 career games, Wallace has completed 59 per cent of passes (452 of 764) for 4,808 yards and 31 touchdowns, along with 18 interceptions. In a relatively young locker room, Wallace, a 10-year veteran, immediately becomes the most experienced player on offence. Only defensive tackle Ryan Pickett has more NFL experience with 13 seasons. Its that experience that drew McCarthy to his new backup. Wallace had time in a West Coast offence in Seattle under former coach Mike Holmgren, who used to coach the Packers. McCarthy said Wallace ran similar no-huddle schemes in Cleveland. Also, Wallace was drafted in Seattle while current Packers general manager Ted Thompsson was the vice-president of football operations there.dddddddddddd With Wallace and Tolzien, Green Bay is starting anew in its quest to find a capable backup to Rodgers after already jettisoning three candidates in the last several weeks. Graham Harrell is now with the Jets. Vince Young was cut over the weekend. B.J. Coleman was released after Wallace was signed. Wallaces journeyman background might also help him out. "Hes been a backup quarterback primarily his whole career. He clearly understands the role, has a lot of experience in an out of systems," McCarthy said. "Just talking football with him last night, I felt confident that hell be ready to play Sunday." Wallace was appreciative of the new opportunity. He gave thoughtful responses to questions from reporters, as if a wise sage offering advice to a rookie on life in NFL. While he wouldnt mind starting, Wallace is clearly comfortable with his role. Hes not going to supplant Rodgers, the 2011 NFL Most Valuable Player. "You cant let that get to you. Thats part of it. Were blessed to play a sport that most people dream to do," he said. "The ones who stay around for a long period of time are the ones who get it." So there was Wallace on Monday on the practice field, watching several feet behind Rodgers as the offence ran through drills. Wallace walking alongside Rodgers during a break, where the two looked like they were talking shop. And Rodgers running through a quarterback drop for Wallace on a particularly quick pass play. "It was a tough couple weeks, Wallace said, "but what happened is behind me and now Im moving forward and focusing on being here in Green Bay and being the best provider as a backup to A-Rod." Notes: Tolzien returned to the state where he played college ball at Wisconsin. ... After competing all preseason with Marshall Newhouse, Don Barclay started at right tackle. But Barclay said he doesnt think the competition is settled, and McCarthy indicated Newhouse would play Sunday regardless ... CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) didnt take part in practice. Two starters sidelined last week by sore hamstrings, S Morgan Burnett and LB Brad Jones, returned ... Besides Tolzien, the Packers also signed OL Aaron Adams and Bryan Collins; RB Michael Hill; WRs Charles Johnson and Myles White; CB James Nixon; and TE Jake Stoneburner to their practice squad. The latter four players were with the team during training camp. ' ' '
