Four players tied for US Open lead

The top two ranked players in the world, defending champion Dustin Johnson and 2011 US Open victor Rory McIlroy, also failed to make the cut. As the pro golfer prepares to defend his championship title, he reflected on the past year by sharing another Instagram photo holding his U.S Open trophy.

The low scoring suggested the 11-year-old course was a cream puff, hardly the USGA's idea of the ultimate test in golf.

"I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did", Johnson said.

Asked if he would have been able to recover from such a mistake earlier in his career, Casey added: "In my good seasons, yes, but there have been times when I struggled, so probably not!"

Shane Lowry is the only Irish golfer now inside the projected cut mark of 1-over at the US Open as Day 2 unfolds.

That's what happened as Stricker made it exactly on the cut line.

Dustin Johnson (73) ended at four over, World No.2 Rory McIlroy (71) missed the cut at five over while World No.3 Jason Day (75) was near the tail of the field at 10 over.

For the first time since the Official World Golf Ranking began in 1986, Nos.

"Yeah, 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", he said. "But you never really know until you put a card in your hand and you're under the gun a little bit".

I'm reminded that golf fans from all over likely aren't traveling to Wisconsin this week to make up the bulk of the crowd. I could still have been there now, hitting the ball over the green. It's just that you've got to keep it in the short grass, out of that fescue, don't make any bogies.

Fowler, the ninth-ranked player in the world, was a stroke out of the lead, following his opening 65 with a 73. "But I'm a pretty happy man". He'll head home to spend time with his son, River Jones Johnson, who was born Monday.

In all, eight of the top 12 players in the world missed the cut, including Henrik Stenson, Alex Noren, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose and Adam Scott. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.

DJ looked very disappointed as he was hoping to defend his title while Day and McIlroy seemed more resigned to their fate. And it will play a lot tougher. He was coasting along, playing par golf and hanging out at the top of the leaderboard.

"Yeah, Mr. Finley, my science teacher from, I think, sixth or seventh grade", Schauffele said.

"Yesterday, coming off an injury, I was a little anxious going out there". I've been very light on competitive rounds this year and it's just a matter of getting into a good round of golf now.

McIlroy has a hectic schedule again. He'll play Travelers, then head overseas to play the Irish Open, Scottish Open and British Open.

Stricker next week will host his PGA Champions Tour event in Madison, the American Family Insurance Championship.

Bill Haas also is off to a nice start, with three birdies and no bogeys through his first eight holes. But he missed his first cut at a major since the 2012 PGA Championship.

I actually walked right by that station on Thursday afternoon, and was indeed nearly run over by a cart driven by two young volunteers tasked with hauling the empty 5-gallon water jugs they'd obviously been using to replace the potentially-infested waters.

As I walked up to Gate 2 to enter Thursday's opening round of the U.S. Open, I moved to toss a Gatorade bottle into the recycling bin at the edge of the walkway. With about two hours left in the second round, the cut was looking to be 1-over par, which would tie a US Open record. He is at 11 under, two shots ahead of Charley Hoffman and Tommy Fleetwood.
