US Open sees top seeds cut, four-way tie for lead

18 Junio 2017, 11:58 | Gerardo Tarin

Fellow Australian Adam Scott started the day in a respectable position of even-par, but the world No.12 sealed his exit with a disappointing 75.

"I was in the hay too much over the last couple of days", Day said.

Were they just not as sharp as they normally would be for a major?

The lead, however, belonged to Brian Harman.

"There are always ups and downs out there". PGA champion Jimmy Walker missed the cut as he continues to recover from Lyme Disease.

He said he felt like he was back on the upswing at the Colonial. Spieth ended up winning by a shot.

"I wish I was about 5 shots better", Stricker said Friday at Erin Hills Golf Club.

"Those things are bonuses, you know?"

"I'm a part of history".

But that's not all that makes the possibilities so limitless Saturday. 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. But after a blistering 7-under 65 to start the tournament, Fowler posted three straight bogeys on Nos. He hasn't broken 70 in a round at the U.S. Open since the final round in 2015 when he won the tournament. With another round to go and the U.S. Open hanging in the balance, Harman wasn't about to let go of the chip on his shoulder a day early and had a message for the media at Erin Hills. He finished in a tie for second at 4 under after an opening 77.

"In my good seasons, yes, but there have been times when I struggled, but had I taken the 8 14 years ago I probably would not have managed to get back like I did today", he said. "It's pretty simple, (we) just didn't get it in the hole fast enough".

Despite the lack of marquee names atop the leaderboard, this is hardly an unknown group of contenders battling it out for the U.S. Open title.

He almost gave them a final few holes to remember in the third round. He shot a 69 and was at 2-under 214.

Stricker, who turned 50 this year, seems to be rejuvenated on the course.

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

What he did was make nine birdies and an eagle, drive a par-4 green with a 3-wood, and shoot the lowest score in relation to par in the history of the U.S. Open. "It will just be cool in itself". That's the lowest differential after 36 holes in the U.S. Open, mainly because until 2012, everyone within 10 shots of the lead made the cut at the U.S. Open.

But he missed a pair of 10-foot birdie chances in that stretch, and one of the birdies he made was a two-putt from 20 feet on the par-5 seventh.

"It's very hard to get get through a major championship, let alone a US Open without a blemish on your card", the 39-year-old told BBC Sport.

The Southport-born Fleetwood had five birdies in his round and just two bogeys.

Another possible factor could be the course, the first par-72 used for the U.S. Open since 1992. No left-hander has won the U.S. Open, the only major championship without a left-handed victor. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it". It also happens to be his 24th wedding anniversary with his wife, Lisa.

After the afternoon wave, Casey must have been positively beaming because the long-hitting 39-year-old surprisingly found himself in a four-way tie for the halfway lead at seven-under 137.
