W2W4: Best bets for second half of US Open

Sveva Terracina | 20 Giugno, 2017, 02:29

Also back in the mix: the mighty Paul Casey. "(It's tough to get through) a U.S. Open or any major without some kind of hiccup".

By the end of the day, that wasn't even the most shocking number. McIlroy is 6 over for the tournament, 13 shots back of leaders Rickie Fowler and Paul Casey.

There were 18 rounds in the 60s, starting with one for the record book.

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

Lowry had a poor front nine, which featured four bogeys and a birdie.

"(Today) will be a very cool experience", Fleetwood said.

The Englishman struggled to get out of the knee-high fescue rough at Erin Hills and posted a snowman on the par-5 14th hole, his fifth of the day. After another week off, he will play the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship.

"The finish was awesome".

"After yesterday's round, I received a couple of tips from different people, and it seemed to work well", he said.

"I have no expectations", he said.

Day, at 10 over, said, "I mean, the scores were out there". "But I'm a pretty happy man".

"I've shown what can happen with one bad swing".

And he still has a long way to go.


World number two McIlroy meanwhile - who earlier in the week had advised players unable to hit the fairways to "pack their bags" - was left at five-over-par after a second round 71.

Torrential rain that doused the 7,818-yard layout at Erin Hills overnight presented the field with a feast of birdie chances, transforming the leaderboard into a sea of red as dusk fell.

That victory was redemption after 2015 when, on the bumpy, much-criticized greens at Chambers Bay, he three-putted from 8 feet on the final hole to give away the win, then the tie.

Tommy Fleetwood had no problem picking out his best shot of the day. He got that up-and-down for a bogey and a 68.

The superstar shot a one-under 71 in his second round as his challenge for the title evaporated. He was 10 under. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

The past six majors have been won by first-timers, and that cycle has a good chance to continue.

Dustin Johnson was right on the cut line with eight holes to play.

Casey chopped his way to an 8 on the par-5 14th and shot 38 on the back nine. But as a younger golfer, he didn't always enjoy that sort of pressure. That left only four of the top 12 in the world to play the weekend.

But he steadied himself with good par saves at the next two holes before holing from 15 feet for birdie at the fourth and, after another scrambled par save at the sixth, he pitched to a foot at the long seventh to set up his second gain.

"It doesn't matter how long, how whatever the course is", Thomas said about the longest course in major championship history. "It's got your attention on every hole, because you know if you miss the fairway, you're going to pay the price".

"Just excited to get on a run of golf and get going".

Casey is playing some of the best golf of his life as he chases an elusive major success. "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".
