E. coli bacteria found in drinking water at US Open

Few in the 156 player field, however, had a more wretched day than Englishman Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters champion who handed in a nine-over 81.

ERIN, Wis. (AP) - The biggest surprise at this U.S. Open was not who was leading, but who was leaving.

The USGA issued this statement: "The USGA was saddened to learn that a spectator at Erin Hills passed away a short time ago".

The Spaniard, 10th in the World Golf Ranking and a popular pick at the U.S. Open, is 3-over par through his first five holes and has yet to hit a green in regulation.

But Casey's momentum ran into the buffers on the next hole, when he twice found the thick rough and had to settle for a bogey five to drop back to six under. He missed almost two months at the start of the year when he was diagnosed with a slight rib fracture, and then the latest break after The Players Championship.

It was another picture flawless day as golfers started the second round of the U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

It was more positive news for another Australian, Marc Leishman, who stayed in contention to be 4-under through 36 holes following an even-par 72.

And then, Fowler took a second straight bogey at No. 12 to fall one shot behind Brooks Koepka.

According to the Washington County sheriff's office, at about 1:25 p.m., Hartford rescue personnel were dispatched to the grandstand at the sixth hole when a man was reported to be without a pulse and not breathing. He kept it in the short grass, the secret to Erin Hills that wouldn't appear to be that hard with some of the widest fairways for this major.

Fowler assumes US Open lead with 7-under 65
Open that are stress-free", said Fowler, who got his round off to a flying start with birdies on three of his opening five holes. But heavy rain, which has softened greens and made fairways more forgiving, leveled the playing field dramatically.

Secret Service Says No Recordings Exist of Trump Conversations with Comey
According to journalist Timothy O'Brien , Trump repeatedly told him in the 2000s that he was recording their conversations. The White House has been under pressure in recent weeks to release any tapes - if they existed.

But under sunny skies on Thursday, Erin Hills looked more friend than foe with 44 golfers breaking par to set a record for the opening round of a U.S. Open. He also joined McIlroy (2011 at Congressional) and Tiger Woods (2000 at Pebble Beach) as the only players to shoot 66 or better in the opening round without a bogey. "But I'd rather be remembered for something that's done on Sunday".

Johnson has spent lots of time in the knee-high fescue. I missed one fairway today, which is the best driving round that I've had maybe in my life. Schauffele had a chance at birdie and a share of the lead with Fowler on his final hole, but pushed his putt just wide to lock him into a second-place tie with Casey.

"I was in the hay too much over the last couple of days", Day said.

Casey, who played in the afternoon, said he drew inspiration from watching Fowler's round on television in the morning. "Then clawed all the way back and actually picked up one more to the good by the time we were finished". But as the sun rose over Erin Hills, and the forecast was for no rain, Mickelson withdrew.

The US Golf Association later confirmed the blimp was not affiliated to the tournament.

Airsign officials later refuted eyewitness accounts suggesting the pilot had parachuted from the aircraft, saying he remained on board throughout the ordeal.

Happy with his putting, the retooled Hadwin said before the championship that this year has seen an improvement in his tee-to-green game. Both he and Fowler made birdies on the 637-yard par-5 18th, which is playing downwind.

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.

Day shot a 75 for a two-day total of 10-over 154, ending at 17 the longest active streak of making the cut in the majors.
