Paul Casey, Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka are tied for the lead at 7 under.
Few have had a more hair-raising ride at a major than Casey, who playing the Erin Hills back nine first opened with a birdie at the 11th before plunging down the leaderboard with a triple-bogey at 14 and a bogey 15, only to rocket back into contention with five consecutive birdies.
And they had even more company. Harman was at 12-under 204 and still only had a one-shot lead, with Rickie Fowler two shots behind.
"I couldn't have shot any higher", Johnson said.
There were 18 rounds in the 60s, starting with one for the record book.
McIlroy, playing for the first time in a month to rest a nagging rib injury, finally got it going when it was too late.
"Yeah, it's a good spot to be in", he said. "I'm sure mama's waiting for me to get home so I can help her out", Johnson said of his girlfriend, Paulina Gretzky.
"It means I'm a part of history". "... I think we'll have a way better idea how the tournament's going to work out tomorrow afternoon. Myself and Rory, we didn't quite have the greatest tee game (Thursday) and it showed in the scores". "It sets up really well for me, especially if I'm driving it like I did today".
"Even though it's very disappointing to not be here on the weekend, I think these last two rounds will serve me well going into the summer", added the 28-year-old, who has added the Scottish Open to his schedule in between the Irish Open and Open Championship.
That's still 15 more than the Erin Hills leads. He got that up-and-down for a bogey and a 68.
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. He was 10 under. Fleetwood has not been in this position before, so it will be interesting to see how he handles the experience. I got off to a good start, but it sort of caught up with me as the round went on. "Looking forward to the next two days".
Scheffler isn't the only amateur making waves at Erin Hills, with Cameron Champ two shots back of the lead at 5 under. Johnson withdrew from the Masters after injuring his back in a fall and didn't arrive at Erin Hills until Tuesday because his fiancee gave birth to their second child.

He rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 5 from the edge of the green that broke so severely that he stood with his toes facing the hole and rapped the ball toward his left foot. On Friday, his trusty putter showed up in a big way as Snedeker drained four putts from long distance, including one from 30 feet for birdie at the par-4 17 after he drove it in the rough, and two from 40-plus feet on Nos. In a couple of weeks Casey will go on a week-long, 360-mile ride through the Italian Dolomites, doing up to 50,000 feet of elevation per day.
"You can shoot low numbers here", Day said. So I really could have been through there with just one bogey. There no longer is a 10-shot rule that would allow anyone within 10 shots of the lead to make the cut. Still, the USGA reacted to Thursday's unusually low scores by placing the pins in more hard locations Friday, seemingly finding the areas where there is a little more break on what are generally flat greens.
Golf fans have been spoiled lately in the sense that they've witnessed for six straight major championships the emotional theatre of players breaking through for their first major victories. And it's especially hard to win a first major when you're the rabbit, setting the pace for the opening two days.
