McIlroy (78) and Day (79) are coming off their worst scores ever in a U.S. Open, mainly because they couldn't keep it out of the thick fescue that frames the wide fairways at Erin Hills.

Most weird about Thursday was that as many amateurs broke par as top 10 players in the world - two apiece.

Count former Taylor County and University of Kentucky star J.B. Holmes among those in the mix. He only shot 75, with just one birdie.

"I think that's a testament to how good the golf course is and how well it's set up", Harman said. He still went out in even-par 36 and was one shot behind Rickie Fowler, who plays in the afternoon. "The same plan, and get on the fairway, and be aggressive as you can, and take your par". "Yesterday (Thursday), I just hit some shots close and made some putts".

Spieth says he asked Ellie on Saturday night what she wanted him to do in the final round of the U.S. Open. "I think that can't be underestimated having your friend with you, whether you're in leading the US Open or anywhere".

Lurking at five under was a pack including young South Korean Kim Si-woo, who recovered from an early bogey by stringing together three straight birdies through the turn on the way to a two-under 70. I got off to a good start, but it sort of caught up with me as the round went on.

Rather than stretching out the course on Friday, tournament officials used the last of the good weather to dry out the course as much as possible, and tuck pins in hard-to access spots.

Only eight shots separate the leaders from the players who made the cut on the number. "Is it really, you're kidding", Welke said. This course could get trickier as even the slightest breeze could push you into the Vespu. Some of it nearly takes the bombers out of it. "And that's what we've been working on, but maybe a day like today is all it needed to just kind of calm down".

Charley Hoffman is joining the jam-packed crowd near the top of the U.S. Open leaderboard.

This might have been more than anyone was expecting. Then again, Spieth has always said Ellie is the funniest member of the family.

Hurdzan is recognized as one of the top golf course designers in the country, but you won't have to travel far to play one of his courses. "Still 7 (under par)".

But then, starting at 17, he reeled off five straight birdies with putts of 13 feet, 7, 3, 11 and 10.

Harman closed with two birdies and three tough pars for a 5-under 67 that gave him a one-shot lead at 12-under 204.

"I usually love places like this". "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did. And I just unfortunately didn't execute".

"I showed up for the last six holes, anyway", said McIlroy, who won at Congressional in 2011 with a record 16-under-par total, but is now a combined 55 over par for his other eight US Open appearances.

"I'm a big fan, " McIlroy said.

Rory McIlroy will miss the cut, but at least one of his U.S. Open records is safe - 35 consecutive holes without a bogey to start a U.S. Open.

Friday wasn't almost as favorable for the world's three-top ranked players, none of whom will move onto the weekend.
