The top 3 miss US Open cut

18 Junio 2017, 08:42 | Benedicto Grullon

It was 1 over at Medinah in 1990.

Nearly an inch of rain fell on the course overnight and Reed, who beat Rory McIlroy in the opening singles at Hazeltine a year ago, was one of many players to take advantage in pursuit of his first major title.

However the 39-year-old world number 14 unfurled a sequence of five straight birdies to haul himself back up the leaderboard, carding a one-under-par 71 to finish the day at seven under.

With the cut falling at one over par, the entire field was separated by just eight shots - but for the first time since the rankings were introduced in 1986, none of the world's top three would be around for the weekend.

Justin Thomas may have had one of the more entertaining birdies of the afternoon at the par-4 fifth. Wisconsin spectators will get a front-row seat watching the best professional golfers from around the world compete on a links-style course set up at a lengthy 7,800 yards - including four par 5s that each stretch more than 600 yards.

Hoffman has opened his third round at Erin Hills with two birdies to move into a four-way tie for second at 6 under.

"It feels great. I came in this week with no expectations really at all", said the 22-year-old. He just missed an eagle at the par-5 seventh after a long putt rolled just wide of the cup. Still, the USGA reacted to Thursday's unusually low scores by placing the pins in more hard locations Friday, seemingly finding the areas where there is a little more break on what are generally flat greens. "It was a really good round of golf and I hardly missed a shot". The Englishman shot a one-under 71 but had to fight back from two bogeys and a triple bogey in his first six holes.

Chez Reavie did what he thought couldn't be done at a U.S. Open. That led to a double bogey, which hurt him as badly as making only one birdie. After the last two U.S. Opens, the USGA needed to avoid any miscues at all costs, and if record scoring is the result then so be it.

Amazingly it could have been even better if not for bogeys on the fourth and 10th, as well as a missed eagle putt from six feet on the 15th after he had driven the green on the 288-yard par four.

"Not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card, but I'm a pretty happy man", Casey said.

His problems started when he tried to lay up and round the right rough. According to statistical tabulation retroactively imposing Shotlink criteria, Miller gained 8.90 strokes tee to green, the highest total of any other 63.

Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day were among the casualties who will not play over the weekend. Rickie Fowler accomplished the feat in the first round, and Hideki Matsuyama and Chez Reavie hit the number Thursday. Casey didn't play Woods, who was eliminated in the first round. The biggest surprise in the top 10 at the turn is amateur Cameron Champ who's tied-eighth after two rounds; amateurs, who don't make any prize money usually tend to attack golf courses more than the pros who're more likely to play the consolidation game. His third shot went over the back of the green, and it took him five shots from there, including a chip that rolled back to his feet. The trio made the cut.
