Rickie Fowler leads US Open on day of highs and lows

ERIN-Golf isn't supposed to be as stress-free as Rickie Fowler made it look Thursday. That shouldn't be super surprising considering how long the rough around Erin Hills is this week.

With the picturesque par-72 course set up at a monstrous 7,845 yards, Erin Hills had been expected to live up to the US Open's billing of being the toughest test in golf.

Lowry's front nine nearly saw the Esker Hills golfer play his way out of the tournament as he posted four bogeys with just the one shot gained.

Woods, who recently underwent his fourth back surgery, has not played a PGA Tour event since January at Torrey Pines, the site of the last of his 14 major wins in 2008.

And ask Edgerton native Steve Stricker, who cruised to a birdie-birdie start to energize a giant contingent of in-state fans only to scrap and claw his way to a first-round 73.

However the 39-year-old world No. 14 unfurled a sequence of five straight birdies to haul himself back up the leaderboard, carding a one-under-par 71 to finish the day at seven under.

Benign conditions on Thursday made for a feast of low-scoring, with a record 44 players dipping under par - the most ever in the first round of the US Open.

The US Open at Erin Hills, with it's outrageously thick fescue rough and slick greens, was always going to be a challenge for the world's best golfers. The worst thing I can do is go and force it, because that's not my game.

For all the latest news and notes from the world of golf, please be sure to check back in with us each and every day.

Easy for Fowler to say.

Fowler started brightly and moved from his starting seven under to nine under at one stage of his second round, while fellow Ryder Cup star Koepka also managed to get to nine under par.

Rory McIlroy and Jason Day never recovered from theirs. His 7-under par tied the record to par for the first round of a U.S. Open held by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf, who each shot 7-under 63 at Baltusrol in 1980.

But like I said at the Masters, 23 there, 25 here, you know, it would be nice to keep going, but if not, it's also fine. "I don't mind shooting four under".

And Casey was joined at the end of play by compatriot Tommy Fleetwood, and USA duo Brooks Koepka and Brian Harman on seven under par.

"You have to be more on when it gets like that because if not, then you're going to struggle".

World No. 3 Day, needing a miracle to get back into contention after his opening 79 carded a three-over-par 75, leaving him 10 over and way outside the projected cutline. The best the OWGR top 10 could do was Rickie Fowler (1st, -7) and Sergio Garcia (T19, -2).

And then there was Stricker. Johnson's round included a double-bogey and two bogeys, all of which happened over the course of four holes.

Mickelson had been holding out hope that with the potential of storms over Wisconsin, there might be a long enough delay that he could still make his tee time. Jon Rahm (T114, +4) was kicking his bag all over Erin Hills.

Which is probably the way it should be.
