Robinson-Thompson was the 1st of those to reach 10-under and will make his US Open debut at Pinehurst in North Carolina on 13th June, less than a year after playing in his first major at The 151st Open at Hoylake.

Brandon – who is now based in the United States – followed up his 1st round 68 with a 6-under 66.
