Two of the pre-tournament favourites flamed out at the year's second major on Friday, struggling through 36 holes on a golf course that seemed ideally suited for them.
His problem was getting the ball in the hole with his new TaylorMade Spider Red putter, but he insisted it was the Indian and not the arrow that was to blame as he took 30 putts. "It sets up really well for me, especially if I'm driving it like I did today. So, all in all, not bad".
If you're wondering if it's the golf course version of "too many cooks in the kitchen", it's not!
Sprinkled through the leaderboard are a few familiar names capable of lighting up the links-style layout with American Rickie Fowler, Englishman Paul Casey and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama all tipped as future major winners. Fowler lost his lead with three straight bogeys on the back nine. No harm, no foul.
His problems started when he tried to lay up and round the right rough. His second shot drifted off the fairway, and his third was over the green in the fescue. "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did". It didn't get any better when he finally made the green.
Champ had five birdies and two bogeys Friday.
"Showed up for the last six holes, anyway", he said. When you're trying to aim at a target usually at a normal golf course, with normal width fairways, there's some pressure in hitting the fairway.
"The guys at the scoring table told me that, so I was pretty pumped about that". "Yeah, it was a bit of a roller coaster".
"Usually when you shoot even in a U.S. Open and you're one off the lead, you're not six down afterward", J.B. Holmes said. Lots of talent, just looking for that one break-out moment.
"Even though it's very disappointing to not be here on the weekend, I think these last two rounds will serve me well going into the summer", added the 28-year-old, who has added the Scottish Open to his schedule in between the Irish Open and Open Championship. Rain for the opening two rounds at Pinehurst No. 2 contributed to Martin Kaymer opening with 65-65 (a U.S. Open record) on his way to an eight-shot victory in 2014.
The Englishman won the Masters a year ago for his only PGA Tour victory.
Elsewhere, confirmation may not be slow in arriving that the US PGA Championship will revert to May from 2019; a long-awaited scenario which would have knock-on impacts for both the European and PGA Tours.
Casey sandwiched a pair of bogeys around his triple during a four-hole stretch of the back nine.
Matsuyama was a wizard on the front nine with six birdies. That left him 299 yards to the hole.
"Yeah, Mr. Finley, my science teacher from, I think, sixth or seventh grade", Schauffele said. McDowell has played a ton with Koepka, and he believes the 27-year-old Floridian will soon stand among the five best players in the world.
South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen had looked like being the early pacesetter, the former Open champion going to the turn in 32 and picking up shots on the 11th and 15th, only to run up a double bogey on the 17th. "So you've got to be very patient and stay in the moment", he said.
"There are always ups and downs out there". Fleetwood's good play over the past week speaks for itself, but asked about it after his second-round 70, it was the influence of his friend that was helping him more than anything else.
Theresa May pledges £5M for Grenfell Tower victims
May on Friday announced a 5 million pound ($6.4 million) fund following meeting with survivors of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The Prime Minister also said there had been "huge frustrations" on the ground as people struggled to find information.
US Open sees top seeds cut, four-way tie for lead
Despite the lack of marquee names atop the leaderboard, this is hardly an unknown group of contenders battling it out for the U.S. We talked it out and got back to hitting the fairways and doing the basics and that led to some birdies on the front nine.
Rep. Steve Scalise 'took a bullet for all of us'
A hospital statement said Scalise was doing better over the previous 24 hours but would "be in the hospital for some time". Scalise has received multiple blood transfusions, which can affect clotting, something doctors will monitor closely.
76ers and Celtics agree to deal for No 1 pick
The Pacers have made clear that Paul George isn't on the block at this point, and it'd take more than the pick just to get him. However, none of them are notably better than the other and one of them will be available at No. 4 overall draft pick.
