4-Way Tie For 1st Place After 2 Rounds of US Open

17 Junio 2017, 11:45 | Benedicto Grullon

The world's No. 2- and No. 3-ranked players, McIlroy and Day, headed home before moving day.

The U.S. Open is hailed as the most hard tournament in golf.

Rory McIlroy almost aced his final hole Friday, striping a 153-yard approach on No. 9 to a hot dog's length. The Englishman shot a 1-under 71, but had to fight back from two bogeys and a triple bogey in his first six holes.

"The golf course is actually really handsome", Day said. "I missed one fairway today, which is the best driving round that I've had maybe in my life. So that just kind of gave me a confidence boost, knowing I can hit those shots".

Not only is there little cause for alarm, McIlroy has reason to be optimistic.

Day, the world number three, shot a 3-over-par 75 on day two to be 10-over and he will be joined on the sidelines by Scott, after the 2013 Masters champion finished on 3-over courtesy of a 75 in the second round. McIlroy relishes the momentum he has thus far been denied for reasons beyond his control. "But at the end of the day, it is competitive golf rounds and getting a card in my hand that I have been missing". Dustin Johnson, the current FedExCup points leader, shot a 73 to finish at 4 over - three strokes outside the cut line.

QUOTEWORTHY: "I'm not here on the weekend, so it's unfortunate".

Casey, who had shot a six-under-par 66 on Thursday, had threatened to mount an early assault on the leaderboard but came unstuck with a disastrous triple bogey eight on the 14th. "I'll work on the game a little bit, and I'll be ready to play at the British". He was still 9 over for the tournament going into his last six holes, but he found a groove that offered at least a few good vibes heading into next week's Travelers Championship. If you get four or five, that's pretty good.

No one has ever broken that 63 barrier in any of golf's four major championships. Should success arrive within this period, the frustrations of the first part of 2017 will be readily forgotten. "If I just keep doing what I am doing, I feel like I know where the ball is going".

"But I only ate one of them as I had a banana, as well". If I had to render a guess, when the rain comes on over the weekend and takes all roll out of the fairway, officials will make the longest course in major championship history even longer. But the former Irish Open victor posted one under for the back nine to get into the clubhouse just inside the cut mark.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course". When I was younger it went everywhere. But I don't let it bother me. I'm going to play. If he can go 69-69-69-69, that could be nice enough to win the whole thing.

Day merely tore up the fescue Friday.

"I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did", Johnson said. Johnson struggled with his putting throughout the day, which included four bogeys. Day was bemused by an aggregate of 10 over par.

After his round, he was asked if he appreciated being called the best player in the field not to have won a Major. "Unfortunately this didn't pan out".

Such low scoring might suggest the 11-year-old course was a cream puff, hardly the ultimate test in golf.
