Harman takes the lead at US open

18 Juin, 2017, 15:55 | Author: Cyril Hebras

Thomas, decked out in shocking fluorescent pink trousers, produced a no less electric performance signing for nine-under 63 to equal the lowest numerical score in a major and the best ever in the 117 year-history of the U.S. Open in relation to par.

Elsewhere, last year's U.S. Masters champion Danny Willett withdrew from the event with a sore back on Friday as the Englishman's injury woes continued. And the 63 tied the Open mark set by Johnny Miller at Oakmont in 1973, and equaled by by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf (1980) and Vijay Singh (2003).

"I was just trying to get to 63, just because I know that's kind of the magic number; 62 is what everybody's been chasing", Thomas told Fox Sports after his round. "It was downwind to where I knew if I hit it solid, I could definitely get it there". A bogey at the extremely hard par-4 fourth hole was the only blip on the front nine and he made the turn at one-over for the day. He had 310 yards to the hole when he hit 3-wood that could have led to big trouble if he went too far long or left.

A superb up-and-down from the back of the 18th green saw Fleetwood leave with just a bogey after a misjudged chip, as Koepka closed with a two-putt birdie to also finish one shot back.

Tommy Fleetwood (-11) - Fleetwood looked poised to run away from the field for a while.

"My best friend has caddied for me for six or seven years", said Champ.

Hadwin tied a U.S. Open record when he made six straight birdies, from the 18th hole through the fifth hole. "My goal heading into this season was to take everything I was already doing, and just to make it all work a little bit better". "But when you're 5 over through four holes, you don't need to stabilize, you need to completely turn it around", Cink said.

On Friday, with Erin Hills beginning to firm up following early week rainstorms, the USGA made a decision to tuck some of the pins into tight spots after a fairly uncharacteristic U.S. Open opening round. Bogey-free for the day standing on the 18th tee, Fleetwood suddenly went "walkabout" around the final green. However, two shots stood above the rest. Former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson shot a 71, though he was still seven shots behind.

"Un jour, je parlerai" — Fillon
Et puis seul le résultat compte: "si j'avais gagné, on aurait dit que j'avais tout bien géré; comme j'ai perdu, on dit qu'on a tout fait mal".

"I'm probably going to be six behind teeing off tomorrow, six or maybe even more", Oosthuizen said.

Triple-bogeys have a way of sinking a round, but somehow that wasn't the situation for Paul Casey on Friday at the U.S. Open.

And despite starting his second round with bogeys on his first two holes, the South African bounced back to record a superb 66 which he matched in the third round.

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

Matsuyama and Reavie each shot a 7-under 65 in the second round of the U.S. Open.

Casey posted a one-under 71 to move to seven under, while Fleetwood and Americans Brian Harman and Brooks Koepka signed for 70s at Erin Hills.

Corey Conners, of Listowel, Ont., shot his second straight 76 to finish at eight-over par and miss the cut. None has ever won a major, and neither have the next 14 players behind them. "That's why I play to get myself in this position".

"I've felt like my game has been good enough to compete in the majors this year".
