Koepka in four-way tie for lead as Matsuyama stars at Erin Hills

19 Junio 2017, 12:11 | Gerardo Tarin

Willett, who pulled out before the start of his second round, was heading towards the Erin Hills exit anyway after an opening round 81.

Bubba Watson, using a pink golf ball one day and lime green the next, shot 75-73 and appeared certain to miss the cut.

He made the eagle to get his name in the record book Saturday. Patrick Reed, Paul Casey, Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood are at 8 under.

Day carded a three-over 75 Friday to finish a disappointing 10 over.

Thomas says "I had no idea in terms of 9 under being the best in the U.S. Open". And if that's not enough of a traffic jam at the top, 18 players are separated by three shots to start the third round. He had a chance to match Jonny Miller's U.S. Open record for low round in relation to par, but he settled for par on the 676-yard 18th.

Of the 68 players who made the cut, 42 are under par. He made four birdies over the last six holes to salvage a 71, but he still missed the cut for the second straight year. Rickie Fowler, the first-round leader, is in a three-way tie at 6 under, followed by an eclectic mix of five golfers at 5 under. The next one went long, he chipped up to 12 feet and took two putts from there.

"If we get rain tomorrow and it gets wet and it plays soft, this place is going to get soft and you're going to have to be aggressive and you have to make a ton of birdies", Snedeker said. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

The last six majors have been won by first-timers, and that cycle has a good chance to continue. I don't know what else it was.

Thomas finished in style, and it had nothing to do with his hot pink trousers.

Si Woo Kim, who captured The Players Championship a month ago, had a 70 and was at 5-under 139 along with a pair of U.S. Open newcomers.

"The finish was awesome". Hopefully I do. I'll take it one step at a time.

But the former Irish Open victor posted one under for the back nine to get into the clubhouse just inside the cut mark. About all that save Erin Hills from another onslaught was a forecast for the strongest wind of the week. Perhaps the 39-year-old now will after a battling display which seems to have added another string to his already well-bolstered bow. "It's a major, it means a lot to me", Johnson said. "We get to go home today because Daddy played poorly". "If you hit it off the tee you can score".

South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen had looked like being the early pacesetter, the former Open champion going to the turn in 32 and picking up shots on the 11th and 15th, only to run up a double bogey on the 17th. "Then three-putt the next two holes".

In all, eight of the world's top 12 will the absent from the shootout for the title, including each of the top three for the first time since the world rankings were introduced in 1986.

He then bogied the 15 hole, hitting it short of the green in two and failing to get the up and down.

However a bogey on the ninth checked his progress, pushing him out to two over. "I guess it's rare you get through a US Open or any major without some kind of a hiccup".

But the work is not done.

Of the five other players who shot a 63 in the third round at a major, none went on to win.

Holmes expects the scoring to get more hard over the final rounds.

Despite the issues, though, Fowler remains in contention for his first major championship.
