Despite the USGA officially listing Erin Hills at 7,741 yards this week, the U.S. Open played over 7800 yards both rounds, underscoring its place in history as the longest track ever in a U.S. Open. "I think the next thing is to contend at big events with the best players in the world, and that would be majors".
Fowler had a one-shot lead over Paul Casey and U.S. Open newcomer Xander Schauffele.
At Brook Valley Country Club, members can pick their U.S. Open "partner", and there is no limit on the number of selections for a certain U.S. Open contender.
Adam Hadwin of Canada made six consecutive birdies, tying a 25-year-old U.S. Open record, and shot a 68.
While McIlroy and former world number one Jason Day missed the cut, amateur Cameron Champ - who turned 22 on Thursday - and Xander Schauffele were unlikely contenders on five under par, alongside Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim. "The golf course is actually really lovely. I was happy it stayed benign for us, and I capitalized on it".
Garcia carded an eagle, three birdies and three bogeys in a roller coaster round.
"I didn't see seven under at the start of the week, but today is the best we are going to get".
Day was particularly disappointed because he thought he had prepared properly for the championship.
Paul Casey produced a brilliant fightback to remain in contention for a first major title as former champion Rory McIlroy missed the cut in the US Open for the second year running.
"Good putting can only hold you in for so long", he said.
It was McIlroy's first tournament since taking time off to tend to a recurring rib injury.
McIlroy worked with his coach Michael Bannon on making a smoother transition from the top of his backswing and although he was three over par after 12 holes, birdies on the fourth, fifth, seventh and ninth ended the week on a high. That still didn't appear to be almost enough. He says the greens on his last few holes "were firming up".
Si Woo Kim, who captured The Players Championship a month ago, had a 70 and was at 5-under 139 along with a pair of U.S. Open newcomers.
Reed went 3-1-1 in his matches that weekend at Hazeltine, and you figured it was just the beginning. He has come close, with five career top-5 finishes, including at all four majors three years ago.
The hottest man on the course was unquestionably Hideki Matsuyama, who bounced back from his first-round 74 by birdieing six of his first eight holes on Friday to sit five off the lead.
Casey did his part to set the pace, even after his triple bogey.
"I take it as a compliment", Fowler answered.
The top-ranked player, defending champion and pre-tournament favorite Dustin Johnson, shot a 75 and said in mild reassurance, "I just didn't putt very well". "Even just trying to take my medicine was very, very hard".
"You don't get many rounds at the U.S. Open that are stress-free", Fowler said. Even as the course slowly recovered from rain early in the week, reasonable scores were available.
It seems doubtful that Love IV can actually mount a challenge to win this weekend, but he could make the cut and make some noise. 1, 2 and 3 all missed the cut in a major. If the sun shines and the wind blows, it's going to dry out.
But there was no hope for Day and McIlroy. Day had no answers. Lovemark said he had the shakes and felt sick to his stomach. "You kind of have to start hitting greens, which I've done a lot more this year".

Complaining US Open golfer can play Erin Hills after all
What raises immediate questions about Erin Hills is the number of players under par, even with so many top stars struggling. One example of that was Fowler hitting 3-wood into the green on the 632-yard 18th hole, with a breeze at his back.
