Johnson, Day and McIlroy miss cut at US Open

19 Junio 2017, 09:30 | Gerardo Tarin

After hitting his drive into the rough on the 17th hole, Hadwin did well to get his second shot up by the green.

Morgan was at 9-under 135 after two rounds and became the first player to reach 10-under par in the U.S. Open with a 30-foot birdie putt on the third hole of the third round. Yet, with the cause all but lost, he turned in a performance over his final six holes that matched anyone, nearly holing out for an ace on the ninth, his closing hole, where a tap-in birdie brought a rueful exchange of what might have been with his caddie JP Fitzgerald.

"The give-a-(bleep) factor was pretty low at that point, which made it a lot easier", he cracked.

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. But I'll play a lot, I just won't practice too much. If that gets cleaned up and his putter continues to be trusty (as it has all week), Fowler can win this thing. There's just too much luck involved. "You're going to make some bogeys in there, so it's really hard to get away from anybody". It's hit or miss if you'll get a decent lie. "Unfortunately, with where I was hitting it, I wasn't in the way". Moments later, he began a run of five straight birdies that put him right where he wanted to be going into the weekend.

The 2009 British Open victor made his first appearance at the U.S. Open in three years, having secured a qualifying spot at the Columbus, Ohio, sectional.

Paul Casey declared himself satisfied with a "roller-coaster" second round at the U.S. Open, which saw him break par despite dropping five shots in four holes on his first nine. "Just got to get off to a good, slow start, get conservative and kind of work my way into a solid round". "You just felt like you're letting everybody down when you're not playing well".

"It's tough, long, and there's tricky breezes, and some pin locations are on the sides of hills". "It will just be cool in itself". All four finished Friday's second round at 7-under-par 137 playing a course that prevented the world's three top-ranked players from moving on. Before assuming Kisner blamed all his Saturday woes on the course setup, here's the rest of the story.

The soft, forgiving conditions created opportunity for major movement up the leaderboard for those players willing to take it. Masters champion Sergio Garcia returned a tidy one-under 71 to leave the Spaniard four back and in contention for a second straight major. He's finished top 10 six times in 14 starts, including a win at Pebble Beach and a t-2 at Colonial. "But obviously, I haven't done that here. So I just need to go home, relax a little bit, hang out with the family and I'll see you at the Open Championship in a month".

To realize what most observers believe is his potential, he does.

As well as Thomas, compatriot Reed was one of the biggest movers, powering up the board with a dazzling seven-under-par 65 that included four birdies on the front nine against one bogey. "That's pretty bad", he agreed.

"It's been an off-putting week for me", Spieth said.

T7. Russell Henley (-8): While records were being broken and the leaderboard continued to push the pace deeper into the red numbers, Henley flew below the radar with a stellar 67 to move into the top 10. It's the first 63 at the U.S. Open since Vijay Singh in 2003 at Olympia Fields and the fifth overall in tournament history.

Willett, the 2016 Masters champion who shot the highest score of 81 on day one, was clearly in some discomfort on the range ahead of his tee-off before advising officials.
