Fowler leads US Open as Day struggles

16 Junio 2017, 01:00 | Benedicto Grullon

Johnson could only manage a three-over 75, Spieth finished with a 73, while McIlroy and Day had awful outings with rounds of 78 and 79 respectively.

But for all the day's struggles, there were plenty of triumphs, led by Fowler, whom Casey credited for giving the competitors who followed his round a roadmap of how to attack Erin Hills' lengthy track.

An investigation has been launched after a blimp deflated, burst into flames and crashed on Thursday morning near the US Open at Erin Hills.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia made a solid start and was in the chasing pack with a handful of holes left, while Rory McIlroy was well off the pace and over par.

Those are the worst scores either has ever posted in this championship. You've got 156 of the best players in the world here.

McIlroy, the 2011 champion, is returning after a month out with a rib injury.

His words came boomeranging back in the first round. "Just a really off day putting".

The plan drew an indignant response from McIlroy, who usually is quite good off the tee.

Fowler should remain in contention, but he will also have at least one hard day. "I was just a little bit off". He hit 13 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens. Johnson's round included a double-bogey and two bogeys, all of which happened over the course of four holes. "And I tend to play better on this type of golf course, so you enjoy what you play well on". "So, no, that's totally fine", he said. I was hacking around in the rough and did not feel it once. "Bit of rust, timing was a little off".

Golfers 1, Erin Hills 0. He ranked 107 in driving accuracy.

Local law enforcement said the pilot suffered burns in the crash.

"You don't get many rounds at the U.S. Open that are stress-free", Fowler told reporters. He made sure the third chip went well past the flag, but triple-bogey 7 was the best he could do. That covers 676 rounds.

"I just did a good job, knew I needed to drive it well, and from there [I was] just able to continue to swing well and hit good shots and roll a couple in. So there's nothing for me to change other than just dial things up on the greens".

Marc Leishman during the first round of the 2017 U.S. Open. He missed the cut at Oakmont past year.

American Fowler had seven birdies and no bogeys in his 65 to record the joint lowest US Open score after round one.

"Really?" an incredulous McIlroy said.

This is the first time Mickelson has missed the U.S. Open since he failed to qualify in 1993. The rest of the top 10 finished at a combined 25 over.

"I hit the ball phenomenally", Spieth said. It's weird. You sit there and it's not like I gave up.
