Four-way tie for lead, top-3 MC at US Open

19 Junio 2017, 03:36 | Gerardo Tarin

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.

Meanwhile, the top three ranked players in the world - Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day - all missed the cut.

"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.

Major champions Bubba Watson, Jimmy Walker, Charl Schwartzel and Jason Dufner also missed. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.

But there was no hope for Day and McIlroy. As I've gotten older, I've gotten a little farther, but a lot more straighter.

McIlroy said he would be hitting the practice ground this weekend.

The big story from day two, though, was the amount of firepower that exited stage left before the weekend.

It was McIlroy's first tournament since taking time off to tend to a recurring rib injury. It's just a matter of getting competitive rounds under my belt.

"I just didn't putt very well".

McIlroy has a hectic schedule again.

"I'm playing next week in CT [in the Travelers Championship]".

Kim won The Players Championship in May for his second PGA Tour title.

That's eight of the next 10 weeks after just seven starts in 2017.

"I usually love places like this".

"If you hit it in the fairway, you can attack the golf course".

Rory McIlroy is trying to make a run as he closes out his second round at the U.S Open.

The left-handed Harman had three birdies, two of them on par threes, and one bogey. His total of 154 equaled his worse two-round total at a major, matching his first two rounds at The Open in 2013.
