Last year's victor and world number one Johnson, who arrived late in Wisconsin after staying in California for the birth of his second child, added a one-over-par 73 to his opening 75 to finish on four-over 148, three off the cut line.
For the second consecutive day, the massive layout was at the mercy of the best golfers in the world, who took turns battering par and the course in the second round of the U.S. Open. "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did". However, back-to-back bogeys on the fourth and fifth holes dropped him back to even-par for the day."The course is, I would say, a few shots harder than it was (Thursday)", Stricker said.
Corey Conners, of Listowel, Ont., shot his second straight 76 to finish at eight-over par and miss the cut.
Still to be determined was who made it to the weekend, and where the cut would fall.
The top 60 and ties make the cut at the U.S. Open.
"It's not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card, but I'm a pretty happy man".
"When I saw it was about seven feet away I knew maybe we had a chance of history". "It's just like I said, you've got to keep it in the short grass, out of that fescue, and don't make any bogeys". "I'm just focusing on doing what I can do and I want to win tournaments. But I don't let it bother me". "Yeah, I was in the hay too much over the last couple of days". "I hit the ball better than yesterday".
The Englishman eventually signed for one-under 71 and walked into the clubhouse level with overnight leader Rickie Fowler, who had yet to start his round.
"I'm sure mama's waiting for me to get home so I can help her out", Johnson said of his girlfriend, Paulina Gretzky. He'll return at next month's British Open at Royal Birkdale.
It means Scott, Day, Wade Ormsby (six-over after a second 75) and Nick Flanagan (10-over after a 79) are all looking at a free weekend.
