U.S. Open 2012 Video: Watch Tim Herron's Unbelievable Chip-in

Tim Herron closed his second round on Friday at the 2012 U.S. Open by making a spectacular chip from the rough on the 18th hole that landed straight into the cup for birdie.

Herron will not make the cut after finishing the tournament at 11-over par, but that's not a bad way to exit the U.S. Open. After shooting a 77 on Friday, it was nice to see Herron end his day on a high note.

It's a shot that he will never forget. It reminded me of a basketball shot that has a high arc and falls right down into the hoop, hitting nothing but net. It's certainly worthy of a spot on SportsCenter's Top 10 highlights feature.

After he collected his ball, he threw it into the crowd where one lucky fan was able to take home a souvenir:

Herron's spectacular chip was one of the many exciting moments during an amazing second round at the Olympic Club. Tiger Woods climbed to the top of the leaderboard, and amateur Beau Hossler proved with an impressive performance that he has an exceptional future ahead of him.

Hopefully we see more shots like Herron's chip during the third and fourth rounds of the U.S. Open this weekend.
