The mighty recovery of Paul Casey puts him in US Open mix
Casey, who is still seeking his first major championship win, was tied with Fowler atop the leaderboard when he reached the clubhouse, before the American - one of the afternoon starters - pulled clear again early in his second round. And I can hit those shots.
Rickie Fowler, the 18-hole leader, made an 8-foot birdie on No. 2 and was just getting going.
Johnson shot 1-over 73 on Friday to finish at 4 over, three shots off the cut line.
Casey's five birdies were one short of the U.S. Open record last matched the day before by Adam Hadwin.
After a record number of scores under par during Round 1, anyone who knows the USGA's style knew things wouldn't be quite as simple in Round 2.
The top 60 and ties make the cut at the U.S. Open. It's the first time since the Official World Golf Ranking began in 1986 that the world's top three players missed the cut in a major.
"But this game's all about putting". Everyone is still in it as this was just the 1st Round, but some notables in the hunt are; Scott who had a great Eagle Putt on 18 to go to Even par. But I don't let it bother me. "It was a good round for me". I'm on the verge of it, I feel like. If you get four or five, that's pretty good. I'm looking forward to it very much.
"There are always ups and downs out there, but I think with how long the course is and how long the days are, I'm sure I won't worry".
It was the second consecutive USA event the Briton has withdrawn from having pulled out of last month's Players Championship in the second round. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.
Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland reacts after finishing on the ninth green during the second round of the 2017 US Open. Back problems also contributed to an early exit at the Masters when Willett became the first defending champion since Canadian Mike Weir in 2004 to miss the cut.
Both players liked the course, but put their performance down to a lack of execution.
"After yesterday's round, I received a couple of tips from different people, and it seemed to work well", he said. Two shots might separate the top 12 players - with just eight shots spread across the entire field - but the leaderboard is devoid of high-profile players and marquee names. McIlroy chalked his poor play up to rust and lack of competitive rounds.
"I didn't think it was the putter, it was the guy on the end of it", he said.
McIlroy, however, who had come into the tournament from an injury layoff after a niggling rib problem, said he was encouraged by his performance.
"I'm playing the weekend".
"You play 54 holes around here before the golf tournament, I felt really, really comfortable", said McIlroy, who won this event in 2011. But he missed his first cut at a major since the 2012 PGA Championship. "But I can't do that yet because I haven't figured out the other part".
"If you hit it in the fairway, you can attack the golf course". But in the previous two U.S. Opens, Johnson added life to what is traditionally golf's toughest and often most drama-free major.
Brooks Koepka wins US Open, Fowler finishes 6 shots behind
Thomas was in the final group with Brian Harman , the third-round leader, and they did not tee off until almost 3 p.m. local time. Opens, on different courses in a different era, told the new victor , "You don't know it, but your life has changed overnight".
Trump calls House health bill he backed 'mean'
It is good news that senators may make their bill more centrist rather than, as the House did, more austere in order to pass it. It is expected that the bill will be ready for a vote before the upcoming August recess, The New York Times reports .
Brooks Koepla Wins a Record-Setting US Open
He defended his title in the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February, beating Webb Simpson in a playoff at TPC Scottsdale. Koepka was a cumulative 12-under on the back nine, with his only bogey coming Sunday on No. 10 thanks to a three-putt.
Koepka wins US Open title
In fact he made a mad rush to the finish, birding 11, 12, 14, 16 and 18 to enter the clubhouse only a shot back. That merely added to the drama, though, as a crowded field sorted itself out in a taut U.S.
Portugal held by Mexico at Confed Cup
The team from CONCACAF had enjoyed nearly 70 percent of possession against the European champions, but hadn't threatened the goal. If the game was a test of those factors, Mexico passed. "We nearly had the game won but we suffered in the final minutes".
