Defending champion Johnson out of US Open


Erin Hills took it on the chin once again.

One shot back. Jamie Lovemark.

Among them all you won't find one victor of a major and only Fowler with star power.

In fact, you have to go down to 19 place to find a victor of a major, Sergio Garcia at three-under. I feel like the golf game is there, I feel like I'm playing good.

World number one Dustin Johnson said he plans to take some time off with his family as he struggles to digest his US Open flop. That did not happen, however, and now there are four players tied atop the leaderboard.

Big, bold, open and long, Erin Hills appeared to be set up for big boppers like Rory McIlroy and Jason Day, but they ended up at five over and 10 over, respectively.

Day thought his game was perfectly suited for Erin Hills. That left only four of the top 12 in the world to play the weekend. But then he three-putted from long range on the 13th and the 14th, and lost all hope when he missed the green on the 17th while going after the flag.

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. "Then three-putt the next two holes". I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes. "So, all in all, not bad".

"But looking and seeing the leaderboard, a lot of young guys, lot of great players". No harm, no foul. He failed to advance his fourth shot more than a foot as the high grass grabbed the club. There was a slight breeze out there, and the greens were receptive if you were in the fairway. So there he stood at two under and seemingly out of the picture. "But I'm a pretty happy man". Garcia carded an eagle, three birdies and three bogeys in a roller coaster round.

"I guess it's where you get through a U.S. Open or any major without some kind of hiccup".

Brian Harman (-7) - Through 36 holes, Harman has just one bogey.

The cut came at 1 over, which tied the record for lowest cut in tournament history, in relation to par, also established in 1990.

The Englishman won the Masters past year for his only PGA Tour victory. He made an eagle on his final hole at the Sony Open in January to shoot 59, and he went on to break the PGA TOUR's 72-hole scoring record.

McIlroy is back to even-par for the round after bogeying the first three holes on the front nine. And I think with everything so large, your target is larger and your misses get even more extreme. "If you do that you're going to deserve a bogey out there".

No fewer than 44 players ducked under par in the first round, and as the second round unfolded Friday, the 7,839-yard layout continued to give up birdies freely.

McIlroy, as well as Day, will play the Travelers Championship near Hartford, Conn., next week as he gears up for the British Open.

Koepka, a power-hitting U.S. Ryder Cup team member, said, "I'm pretty chill anyway". At 30, Harman has been around long enough to claim two PGA victories.

Rickie Fowler looked to move clear at the top of the US Open leaderboard on Friday as rivals Rory McIlroy and Jason Day headed for the exit.

"I have no expectations", he said.

"I went back to my old coach and had one of my best mates caddying", he added. Making sure I just don't get ahead of myself.

Chez Reavie matched Matsuyama's 65 in round two to lead a group at four under. "So you've got to minimize those mistakes, minimize those bogies".
