McIlroy misses back-to-back cuts at US Open

17 Junio 2017, 04:17 | Martinez Canez

There's a four-way tie for the lead at the U.S. Open.

The pace might actually pick up when the PGA Tour veteran leaves Erin Hills.

Paul McGinley reflects on a disappointing week for Rory McIlroy at the US Open and looks at some of the factors behind his missed cut at Erin Hills.

Not bad for a U.S. Open rookie who had to go through qualifying to make it to Erin Hills.

Fowler's seven birdies were from no more than 12 feet, including three in a row around the turn. He still went out in even-par 36 and was one shot behind Rickie Fowler, who plays in the afternoon.

And it doesn't stop there.

Unfortunately for the four-time major victor he looked on course to be doing precisely that on Friday afternoon after struggling to an opening 78, which featured an eagle on the second, four bogeys and double bogeys on the 15th and 17th. With about two hours left in the second round, the cut was looking to be 1-over par, which would tie a U.S. Open record.

Attribute that to the Wisconsin weather.

It was the flawless recipe for low scoring, provided the ball was kept in the short grass.

Rory McIlroy's 71 wasn't enough and he'll miss the cut at five-over.

"I definitely hit it better off the tee". Jason Day made two triple bogeys and closed with a birdie to avoid the indignity of shooting 80. By contrast each of the last three years running, the field has played the opening round 3.8, 2.7, and 3.2 strokes over par respectively.

Undaunted, Fowler responded with a mammoth 51-foot putt for birdie on the eighth to reclaim a share of the lead. The defending champion shot a 73.

"We had a lot of fun out there", said Niebrugge, from Mequon, Wis., and the 2013 Western Amateur champion at The Alotian Club in Roland. "The fairways aren't too far away, so it gives a good definition to your eye, so you can pick targets if you're a better golfer or when you're out there it's just a pretty picture". "It's a big golf course with lots of rough, but it lets you play". Adam Hadwin tied a U.S. Open record with six straight birdies. It has learned to accept that in pristine scoring conditions - mainly, soft conditions - low scores don't distract from the tournament. The No. 1, 2 and 3 players in the world shot a combined 16-over par.

The little lefty from Georgia has a chance to make a little history at Erin Hills.

Everyone has to start somewhere, and that's been the case for the last six majors, all won by players who had never won a Grand Slam event before.

No break for Steve Stricker after the U.S. Open. But as Erin Hills is created to play fast and rolling, with truly punishing fescue rough, accuracy is as likely to pay dividends as length.

And the biggest test of all could be the USGA proving that it's not trying to protect par. I got out of position, but it's the attitude, it's the grit that matters at the end of the week.

A rattled Casey added another bogey at the 15th to extend his miserable run before hitting back with birdies at 17 and 18. We don't even talk about it.

"Just timing was a little bit off, and that was it".

"It doesn't affect the game plan one bit, and it doesn't really affect the mindset", he said. Rescue crews used utility vehicles to reach the crash site, about a half mile from the golf course.
