US Open leaderboard crowded after day two

Parmenio Sano | 21 Giugno, 2017, 10:05

Sixty-eight players made the cut, with former champion Webb Simpson, former Masters and British Open victor Zach Johnson and former PGA champion Keegan Bradley all making it on the number.

The 32-year-old American star had arrived at Erin Hills brimming with confidence, buoyed by the birth on Monday of his second son, and ready to tear into a course suited to his big-hitting game. "But you don't really know until you put a card in your hand and you're under the gun a little bit", said McIlroy, who said goodbye at 5 over.

Rory McIlroy will miss the cut, but at least one of his U.S. Open records is safe — 35 consecutive holes without a bogey to start a U.S. Open.

He missed a five-footer for birdie on his first and then squandered another chance on 11, where he missed a 12-footer. He looked like he was making a move toward the tourney's leaderboard. But on Friday, after running off 28 relatively stress-free holes without a bogey, the mojo suddenly left, and Fowler found himself scrapping and scraping so as not to lose too much ground. Johnson struggled with his putting throughout the day, which included four bogeys.

The bunched leaderboard consists of four players tied at the top: Englishman Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood, and Americans Brian Harman and Brooks Koepka. "That fifth shot on the 18th was the best shot all day".

Johnson's exit came after world number two Rory McIlroy and world number three Jason Day also missed the cut after disappointing rounds.

There's a requirement for survival at a U.S. Open, which happens to be golf's ultimate test.

"(Today) will be a very cool experience", Fleetwood said. Unthinkably, Thomas shot a nine under on Saturday.


So he tees it up again this morning and will try to advance from his current tie for 55th place. And I can hit those shots.

"I was a little anxious going out there", McIlroy said. It was one of his four top-10 finishes between the European and PGA Tours this season.

For the first time since the Official World Golf Ranking began in 1986, Nos.

If he's anxious, he's a better actor than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Johnson, who had bullishly expected to do well on a course he believed to be perfectly suited to his game, admitted he was surprised to be out after only 36 holes. "Everything is settled in my bag". "I felt like I've been playing pretty well all week, and didn't have quite the numbers to show for it". The other Johnson here, 2016 Open-winner Dustin, isn't. "But when you're visually looking down the fairway, I think when you're trying to aim at a target at a normal golf course, with normal width fairways, there's some pressure into hitting the fairway because it is a lot narrower than we have out here".

"Just excited to get on a run of golf and get going". "But I don't let it bother me".

The final pairing of Casey and Harman are scheduled to tee off at 2:29 p.m. (1925 GMT), but a forecast calling for the possibility of thunderstorms could disrupt third-round action.
