Blimp crashes at US Open in Erin Hills, Wisconsin

Right behind him were 43 other players who broke par, breaking a championship record that had stood for 27 years.

Na's success Thursday showed that driving accuracy could be more important than length at Erin Hills because of the fescue that was the subject of his social-media post. Jason Day and Rory McIlroy never got that memo.

Casey has played in enough U.S. Opens to know that Thursday's conditions are not the norm and the field for the 117 edition shouldn't get used to the softer side of the championship, which is why he made the most of the opportunity.

Fowler was the pick of the morning starters at Erin Hills, capitalising on softened greens and a lack of wind early in the day to fire seven birdies in a bogey-free round. McIlroy sits in a tie for 145th place after carding an ugly 78 on the par-72 course. A couple of good rounds in a row, and McIlroy could have been working his way back into contention by Sunday.

Rickie Fowler silenced USGA and Erin Hills critics Thursday by shooting a first-round 7-under 65 to grab the early lead.

"My caddie made a comment on the 9th hole". He shot 42 on the back. "It's not good. Glad everybody is OK", Snededker said after finishing his round.

"It basically just dropped straight to the ground, and once it was on the ground it exploded three times", Guetzke said. But, yeah, it is a ball-striker's golf course overall.

"Just I'm always happy and excited to be with them".

He never saw it coming. "There's a lot of golf to be played". Erin Hills must have felt like another planet, not the same state.

Fowler is one shot in front of Tommy Fleetwood, with Brian Harman and J.B. Holmes another shot back at 3 under.

It wasn't the only one.

The former PGA champion then required five shots just to find the putting surface at the 10th as he carded another seven, and he dropped shots at three of the next five holes before barely raising a smile as he birdied the 18th to break 80. He needed another two shots to get on to green. "Because it's not like I gave up". A player fearless enough to go for the green risks ending up in the rough, or in the green-side bunker, as Justin Rose did playing in the same group. "But there's way too many holes out here where one bad shot could be a double bogey quickly". "Just have to try to go out tomorrow and rectify those".

Unlike Garcia, Casey followed his eagle with a birdie on the par-4, 330-yard second.

"So it is imperative for me to get off to a good start and I haven't been able to do that".

Getting to the weekend might feel like a victory all by itself.
