Louisville's Justin Thomas Sets A US Open Record

18 Junio 2017, 01:24 | Martinez Canez

Tommy Fleetwood was relaxed about sharing the lead at the halfway stage of the US Open as the absence of some of golf's biggest names set up an intriguing weekend at Erin Hills.

Hideki Matsuyama was part of a five-strong group a shot further back after a brilliant 65, the Japanese star racing to the turn in 30 and picking up another shot on the 13th before having to settle for five closing pars. The course is probably nicer to play without the wind, but if it does blow, then you'll definitely have to play proper golf. "Today I started off a bit ropey". "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

"I just naturally have done it since I was 15 or 16". He doesn't have all the pressure on him, doesn't have the spotlight on him, but he's right in the thick of things.

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

Johnson put his weekend in jeopardy after missing a 6-footer for par on the par-3 13th.

The cut has been made at +1 ahead of the final two days of action at Erin Hills, Wisconsin.

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

It was the first time since the world ranking began in 1986 that the top three players missed the cut in any major.

Day, at 10 over, said, "I mean, the scores were out there".

What we didn't know is that this Open would separate so many men from the tournament. "So it's pretty simple, I just didn't get it in the hole fast enough".

Former Alabama golfer Justin Thomas is your clubhouse leader at the 117 U.S. Open following a record round on Saturday. He missed the cut at last year's PGA and withdrew from this year's Masters after falling down a staircase.

"Taking nothing away from 9-under par - 9-under is incredible with U.S. Open pressure", Miller told GolfChannel.com. He landed the ball perfectly on the fringe of the green and it rolled just past the hole for a makeable eagle putt. And at the end of the day add them up and see how you do.

Koepka, playing the back nine first, birdied four of his first seven holes. Winning the U.S. Open is something he has thought about many times, the 26-year-old from Southport said. McIlroy expressed fondness for Erin Hills despite heading home early. "I had to hit it all".

"The greens were still receptive to good shots, but they were firmer and faster", said Fowler.

Johnson said he plans to take four weeks off.

Great place to be for a guy trying to win his first major. "It's just like I said, you've got to keep it in the short grass, out of that fescue, and don't make any bogeys".
