Day done, McIlroy also likely to miss US Open cut

Willett, who pulled out before the start of his second round, was heading towards the Erin Hills exit anyway after an opening round 81.

"It was a surprise as I really like this golf course". Dustin Johnson entered as the defending champion.

On the longest course ever for a major, the cut was the lowest at the U.S. Open since 1990. That still didn't appear to be almost enough.

Koepka hasn't finished inside the top 15 at a PGA Tour event since April. But at 5-over 149, he'll have the weekend off, too.

But there was no hope for Day and McIlroy.

"It's been the best preparation going into a major, I felt like, in my career", he said.

"I've got a busy summer, so I'm excited to play a lot of golf".

Whatever happens, the championship is set to crown a first-time major victor, as the closest previous major champion is Louis Oosthuizen in a tie for 17th at four-under. "When you give us soft greens, good greens and not much wind, you know there are going to be some good scores".

"The guys at the scoring table told me that, so I was pretty pumped about that".

It didn't for Rory McIlroy, either.

"It's still Erin Hills".

Casey laid up in the rough, took two chops to get out of more rough behind the 14th green, and staggered away with a triple-bogey 8 that might have ruined his day at Erin Hills.

"I think at the end of the day, it's competitive rounds and get the card in my hand", McIlroy said. "And just unfortunately, this didn't pan out".

On Friday, with Erin Hills beginning to firm up following early week rainstorms, the USGA made a decision to tuck some of the pins into tight spots after a fairly uncharacteristic U.S. Open opening round.

The last six majors have been taken by first-time winners.

Johnson insisted he was happy with his long game at Erin Hills, but he could not back up his ball striking with his putting as he failed to build on a positive start to his second round. He smoothed that out on Friday, and had better results.

Johnson was hitting it so well that he appeared to be safe even when he was on the cut line. I know that sounds insane, but if Garcia fires a 67 or 66 on Saturday, he'll be right in the mix. So I really could have been through there with just one bogey.

"Justin played a great round, but he was two, two-and-a-half hours before me". Everything was in good shape. There is more than a little work involved in this pro golf thing.

Casey said he couldn't remember the last time he had five birdies in a row or an eight in a competitive round.

McIlroy has a busy stretch ahead. There never have been nine straight Opens without a playoff.

"Yeah, first cut made, too (at the U.S. Open)", Harman said.

Reed shot a 7-under 65 in the third round of the U.S. Open, equaling the low total of the tournament. "There's no telling how low", said Harman, who posted his second 67 of the week on Saturday. He never expected to be making those plans on a Friday. This week, he didn't have it.

At least he's still playing this weekend.

He's tied with Brooks Koepka, who birdied the 18th to get there, and England's Tommy Fleetwood, who bogeyed the last to fall out of a share for the lead.

After a four-under-par 68 on Saturday, the 26-year old Englishman sits 11 under par for the week and one shot off the 54-hole lead held by Brian Harman.
