Fowler assumes US Open lead with 7-under 65

17 Juin, 2017, 05:52 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

"It's the kind of golf course that if you're on point and playing well and you're in the fairways, you really feel like you can be aggressive and attack and make some birdies".

Lee Westwood, who is seeking his first major title at the 77th attempt, carded a 69 which was matched by compatriot Andrew Johnston, but defending champion and world number one Dustin Johnson struggled to a three-over-par 75. "That's stuff you're not going to get if I had one of my best friends caddie for me". Casting aside his own advice, he chose to stay for another day at the U.S. Open. In fact, Fowler was one of only two golfers in the top 10 in this week's world rankings to play under par.

"You don't get many rounds at the U.S. 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.

Paul Casey watches his shot on the eighteenth fairway during the second round of the US Open golf tournament at Erin Hills, Wisconsin June 16, 2017.

Rickie Fowler, the 18-hole leader, made an 8-foot birdie on No. 2 and was just getting going.

It complied on Friday as a sport created to be uniquely grim and unpleasurable became more grim and unpleasurable compared with Thursday and its rare ration of U.S. Open glee.

With Johnson, McIlroy and Day misfiring, it was left to a clutch of unheralded players to dominate the upper reaches of the leaderboard. "The scoring was so good this morning".

It was the second straight year McIlroy missed the cut at the U.S. Open. Brian Harman, Brooks Koepka (KEHP'-kuh) and Tommy Fleetwood are at 5-under. "I just played bad golf", said Day.

Day's meltdown began when not one, but two chips from the first cut of rough behind the fourth green hit the top of the hill, then trundled back down to nearly where Day was standing.

His father Gerry, who has been in the golf industry for almost four decades, said over the phone this week that as a 17-year-old, his son's ball-striking was a good as any player in the world.

Johnson also missed the cut at the Memorial, so this was the first time since 2013 (Pebble Beach, Riviera) that he has missed the cut in consecutive events.

"It's always cool to be part of some sort of history in golf, but I'd rather be remembered for something that's done on Sunday", said Fowler, who finished in the top five in all four majors in 2014 but has yet to win one of the game's biggest prizes. Jamie Lovemark said he was teeing off when he looked up and saw the blimp on fire. "But there's way too many holes out here where one bad shot could be a double bogey quickly".

"I lost a bit of skin out there", Casey said of the triple bogey.

Casey has recorded triple bogeys before in his long and illustrious 17-year pro career but none where he has fought back to share the lead in a Major. Length wasn't the issue.

"You don't often see that in a U.S. Open", Hadwin said.

But heavy rain, which has softened greens and made fairways more forgiving, leveled the playing field dramatically. One example of that was Fowler hitting 3-wood into the green on the 632-yard 18th hole, with a breeze at his back.

McIlroy missed from five feet at the 10th - his opening hole - and dropped a shot at the 12th after misjudging a chip from just off the green.
