Dustin Johnson misses cut at US Open — Major Surprise

US Open filled with limitless possibilities, few stars

"It's a good 8 in the end".

"Showed up for the last six holes, anyway", he said.

Unheralded American Brian Harman has taken a dramatic third round by the scruff of the neck to lead the US Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. He loved Erin Hills, a course with wide fairways between the knee-high fescue that he figured would allow him to attack. "I just happened to be in the flawless spot". On No. 7 he sank a 15-footer.

"But more important than that was just to get myself in contention to win the tournament".

He added another birdie on the par-3 13th. The top 60 and ties qualify for the final 36 holes.

American Patrick Reed also flirted with the US Open record, signing for a seven-under 65 to headline a pack of five at eight-under.

Danny Willett, the Masters champion in 2016, withdrew before the start of the second round with a back injury.

McIlroy followed an opening-round 78 with a 71 and is now a combined 43 over par in 18 U.S. Open rounds since winning the tournament at Congressional in 2011.

"This is the United States Open". No other information was provided.

Haman, 30, joined the PGA Tour in 2012 and has won two tournaments, including the Wells Fargo Championship this year.

It sounds as if Erin Hills is becoming more challenging with each passing minute.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said, referring to his status in the first-person plural after shooting 1-over 73.

"Not your typical U.S. Open setup, but I'm a big fan", McIlroy said.

Harris English is 4 under after a second-round 69. Players noticed firmer greens that were allowing putts to race past the hole.

"I think since my dad dropped me off at football practice and told me not to be disappointed if I didn't get to play at all", Harman said.

Sure, he birdied four of his last six holes to salvage a 71 and finish at 5-over 149. And he missed an eminently makeable eagle putt after driving the green on the par-four 15th.

Thomas set the U.S. Open scoring record despite registering a pair of bogeys, offsetting them with nine birdies and his closing eagle. It's still a U.S. Open. His drive appeared to sail into the rough. It took a hard turn to the right and rolled in.

The 24-year-old Louisville native is not new to success.

After parring the sixth, he had a run of three birdies.

But the Englishman now has a share of the lead at the U.S. Open.

He then hacked out his fifth out sideways and now some 52-feet from the hole from where he chipped and two putted. He tapped in for par.

The thrilling finish vaulted Thomas into the clubhouse lead on 11 under par late in the third round but with numerous contenders still out on the course and threatening to catch him. His total of 154 equaled his worse two-round total at a major, matching his first two rounds at The Open in 2013.

The performance of the 23-year-old from San Diego has been no less remarkable.

And he still has a long way to go.

Also back in the mix: the mighty Paul Casey.

Jamie Lovemark, Rickie Fowler and J.B. Holmes, meanwhile, are a shot further back from the leaders.

Here comes Si Woo Kim.

And then there was Tommy Fleetwood, a name not many in the US will be overly familiar with. But that wasn't the problem. He said that his 16 years of experience is what allowed him to keep the wheels from falling off on the par-5 14th hole.

He had a chance to extend his lead to two but missed an 11-footer for birdie on 18.

Meanwhile, the top three ranked players in the world - Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day - all missed the cut.

"I've never played in [one of the final pairings of] a U.S. Open, so tomorrow will be a very cool experience". He doesn't play until Friday afternoon.

Thomas, who was tied for the lead at the time at 9-under, chose to go for the green from a little over 300 yards out.

That's what happened as Stricker made it exactly on the cut line. He was 10 under, only two shots behind.
