University Place, Wash. - Broadcasting more than a combined 11 hours of second-round play, FOX Sports continued its inaugural presentation of the 115th U.S. Open Championship on Friday on FOX Sports 1 (12:00 - 8:00 PM ET) and local FOX stations (8:00 - 11:14 PM ET).

For the second consecutive day, viewership numbers showed impressive gains across both networks, highlighted by primetime coverage on local FOX stations that drew 2.9 million viewers, the most-watched second-round telecast of the U.S. Open on any network since the 2012 championship at Olympic Club (3.0).
