Paul Casey battles back into contention at US Open but Rory Mc Ilroy misses cut

Paul Casey battles back into contention at US Open but Rory Mc Ilroy misses cut

However, after dropping another shot on the 15th, Casey regained his composure superbly to birdie the 17th and 18th, the latter being the second longest hole in major history at 676 yards. He still had his worst score in a U.S. Open.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, the elderly spectator died while attending the event near the sixth hole.

Justin Maynard, a sales manager for AirSign, said the company's operations team on the ground in Erin had no definitive information on the pilot's condition, other than the pilot was expected to be OK. "It's still Saturday - 36 holes is a very long time in a U.S. Open". And I think with everything so large, your target is larger and your misses get even more extreme.

"Definitely not U.S. Open-like", Marc Leishman said. This one he'd rather forget.

The 23-year-old from San Diego had been having an excellent debut at the Open. He shot 42 on the back.

And Fowler said he's ready to join what he calls the elite - the players who have won a major championship. Moments later, he began a run of five straight birdies that put him right where he wanted to be going into the weekend.

"You could see the black smoke and then there were three big fireballs as it exploded", she said. His tee shot at the 9th finished less than three feet from the hole which he converted to make the turn in 3 over. He tapped in for par.

It's good to be Rickie Fowler.

It's a nice comeback for Casey after he triple bogeyed the par-5 14th and shot 38 on the back nine.

Let's hope all we remember about the 2017 US Open is great golf at a great golf course.

"Guess what?" he said to his 4-year-old son. The next one went long, he chipped up to 12 feet and took two putts from there.

"It's been the best preparation going into a major, I felt like, in my career, which is playing in majors and knowing what I needed to do to prep for a tournament such as this", Day said.

Dustin Johnson had to gouge it out of the rough on at least eight occasions, including the par-5 14th hole when he tried to play conservatively and laid up into rough. The Englishman has roared back to life with four straight birdies and is back to being one shot off the lead.

South Korea's Kim Si-Woo and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama were among five players on five under which also included amateur Cameron Champ.

Fowler, who shared the 36-hole lead at the Masters in April, never came seriously close to bogey because he was never in trouble. He is 3 under for the tournament.

At the top of the leaderboard at present are Rickie Fowler and Brooks Koepka on 8-under, although both have yet to complete their rounds. But that wasn't the problem. He made sure the third chip went well past the flag, but triple-bogey 7 was the best he could do. He missed a good opportunity at the 11th and then found the rough at the 12th and dropped a shot. He had just taken off on his second flight of the day in a hybrid of a typical blimp and a balloon envelope when he decided it was too windy and planned to return to a private airstrip. But more storms were in the forecast for Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon, so there's not much chance of Erin Hills getting firm, fast and scary. Among those trying to chase him down is Paul Casey of England, who was one shot behind. "I don't know that I've ever played a U.S. Open where I've had that much enjoyment".
