Fowler proves human, makes bogey at US Open

17 Junio 2017, 11:23 | Benedicto Grullon

As for scoring drama - well, this was one time he may have wished he didn't know where he stood. He's playing the Travelers Championship next week, then after a week off, heads to the Irish Open, the Scottish Open and The Open in consecutive weeks.

T1. Paul Casey (-7): Casey turned in a clean front nine to finish the day.

Dustin Johnson. Rory McIlroy.

"I take it as a compliment", said Fowler. I feel like I'm playing good. "I actually gave it 100 percent all the way through the end and I shot 79". Right behind him were 43 other players who broke par, breaking a championship record that had stood for 27 years.

The world number 14 found himself in trouble when he flew his approach out of rough over the green into the deep fescue and needed five more strokes to get in the cup.

That's not necessarily optimism run amok; Fowler hit just one few fairways (11) and three fewer greens in regulation (12).

The left-handed Harman had three birdies, two of them on par threes, and one bogey.

Lowry's front nine nearly saw the Esker Hills golfer play his way out of the tournament as he posted four bogeys with just the one shot gained.

At least he'll have plenty of company at the airport.

McIlroy won the US Open with a record 16-under-par total in 2011, but was a combined 50 over par for his seven other appearances before this week and missed the cut at Oakmont past year following rounds of 77 and 71.

"You can not play this golf course if you're not in position off the tee, and I wasn't in position", McIlroy said.

"But this game's all about putting".

"If the sun stays like it is and the wind keeps baking this golf course out, it's pretty treacherous on the weekend; which is just what I would like and I think what the rest of the players want to see".

McIlroy, who has struggled through a nagging rib injury that has limited him to six tournaments this year, saw some positive signs in the second round after complaining about feeling rusty after his substandard opening 18 holes.

Rory McIlroy's pre-tournament comments looked set to prove disappointingly accurate as he battled to avoid missing the cut for the second year running in the US Open.

Despite the scorecard battle, Leishman says it's the most comfortable he's been at a major. But then he three-putted from long range on the 13th and the 14th, and lost all hope when he missed the green on the 17th while going after the flag. Spieth ended up winning by a shot. With one more birdie on the back nine, Matsuyama carded a sparkling 7-under 65, matching Fowler for the low round of the week.

Woods, who recently underwent his fourth back surgery, has not played a PGA Tour event since January at Torrey Pines, the site of the last of his 14 major wins in 2008. "And unfortunately with where I was hitting it, I wasn't in the way". Here if you can hit it long and straight, it's a great advantage.

Johnson said he plans to take four weeks off. It's a lot easier said than done.

"It is always cool to be part of some sort of history in golf but I'd rather be remembered for something that's done on Sunday".

There are many golf fans who likely have only been paying attention to Hadwin during his 2017 hot streak.
