U.S. Open Heats Up With 17 Left To Go

The 2009 U.S. Open has been held hostage by rain but finally, perhaps it will end sometime on Monday.

Here's what we know after 54 holes and a few holes of the final round in the books:

At the top, we find Cinderella A and Cinderella B, Ricky Barnes and Lucas Glover. Two huge underdogs sit atop the 60 players who survived the 36-hole cut.

Both Barnes and Glover finished the third round with even-par 70s, with Barnes clinging to a one-shot lead at eight-under.

All it took was one hole of the fourth round to create a tie at the top—a bogey at one dropped Barnes to seven-under with Lucas.

Things continued to go south for the former U.S. Amateur champion, as he found the high grass with his drive on the second hole.

It was the horn signaling an end to play that perhaps delayed another possible bogey for Barnes.

Going into Monday morning, there is a lot of uncertainty—and perhaps, finally, some real excitement and drama in the air.

Here's what we know with 17 holes to play.
