"I don't know that I've ever played a U.S. Open where I've had that much enjoyment".

In that measurement of human recovery commonly known as sand-save percentage, Fowler ranks No. 1 this year.

On a day in which 105 players hit 10 or more fairways, McIlroy only hit five.

Casey started eagle-birdie and finished with two birdies over the final four holes for his 66.

"You don't get many rounds at the U.S. Open that are stress-free", Fowler said.

"Definitely not U.S. Open-like", Marc Leishman said.

English says "They want par to be a good score, and this afternoon it will be".

The Spaniard posted a one-under 71 in Friday's second round for a three-under-par total of 141 as the afternoon wave of players were beginning their rounds at Erin Hills. But I like the way this golf course suits me, and we're off to a good start.

Johnson birdied his opening two holes of the second round in his bid to first make sure he had a tee time Saturday, and then try to make up ground on the lead. Schauffele went 26 consecutive holes without a bogey until he rammed his long birdie putt on No. 9 about 12 feet by the hole and narrowly missed the par putt. He was in California for his daughter's high school graduation, hopeful for enough of a weather delay to jet across the country to Wisconsin.

There are different formats of these tournaments, but the basis is members play at their course and are assigned to a player in the U.S. Open field. The pilot, the only one aboard the blimp operated by Florida-based AirSign, was being treated for injuries.

"I was teeing off and I looked up and saw it on fire, and I felt sick to my stomach", Jamie Lovemark said.

Americans Brooks Koepka and Brian Harman shot five-under 67s and were joined by Englishman Tommy Fleetwood. The Canadian and former University of Louisville golfer was 100 feet away for birdie on No. 6 and burned the edge of the cup on that one, except that it ran by some 7 feet and he three-putted for bogey. PGA Tour rookie Xander Schauffele didn't make a bogey at Erin Hills until his 27th hole, had his hiccup with a double bogey on the par-3 13th hole but still managed a 73. "So I did a really good job of staying present, staying focused on the next shot".

With only a gentle breeze and rains having taken the bite out of the monstrous 7,845-yard course, players tore apart the links-style layout, attacking the pins with bravado on a day when 17 competitors broke 70. Length wasn't the issue. One example of that was Fowler hitting 3-wood into the green on the 632-yard 18th hole, with a breeze at his back. With a blind shot to the green, he went long into deeper hay, and his first hack at it moved the ball only a few feet.
