Leishman 'feeling good' but eyeing improvement at Erin Hills

Leishman 'feeling good' but eyeing improvement at Erin Hills”

Fowler finished his bogey-free round with seven birdies-including three straight at Nos. And definitely not during a first round of the U.S. Open, when Erin Hills was playing longer than any other track in tournament history.

Golfers and fans saw the aircraft catch alight while on the course at Erin Hills, northwest of Milwaukee.

But Fowler paced the field by playing almost flawless golf by hiting 12 of 14 fairways.

"And I feel like you look at the leaderboard, there are a lot of guys that had opportunities and made a lot of birdies".

That equalled the lowest score in relation to par in the first round of a US Open, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf having both shot 63 in the first round on the par-70 layout at Baltusrol in 1980.

After walking a mile-OK, maybe not quite that far, but probably not that far off-in Fowler's stress-free spikes for the first seven strokes of his first round, it felt like Stricker labored over every one of his final 66. "But I'd rather be remembered for something that's done on Sunday". It's just one of those things, you've got to get out and just play and try and do your best and hang in there.

Johnson could only manage a three-over 75, Spieth finished with a 73, while McIlroy and Day had terrible outings with rounds of 78 and 79 respectively. "I just played bad golf, man!" He has peppered leaderboards at major championships over the last couple years, but is still in search of a breakout win. "That was the big key for me". McIlroy made a 30-foot putt for eagle on the short par-4 second hole and was even par at the turn.

"I thought 7-under was just a phenomenal score", said Jordan Spieth, the U.S. Open champ two years ago who shot 73. He had just taken off on his second flight of the day in a hybrid of a typical blimp and a balloon envelope when he decided it was too windy and planned to return to a private airstrip.

Day meanwhile was left sliding towards an early exit after a calamitous seven-over-par 79.

Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood of England and Brooks Koepka are all two shots off the lead on a day when birdies were there for the taking.

Right behind him were 43 other players who broke par, breaking a championship record that had stood for 27 years. That led to a double bogey, which hurt him as badly as making only one birdie.

Former US Open champion Ernie Els chose the 20th anniversary of his last victory in the tournament to remind fans that he is not quite ready to be put out to grass. "I was happy it stayed benign for us, and I capitalized on it". An advertising blimp not associated with the United States Golf Association or the U.S. Openbroadcast crashed and burst into flames during Thursday morning's first round.

Senior air safety investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board Pamela S. Sullivan said he was in a stable condition.

Mary Ruediger, 45, was visiting her parents who live along an access road to the golf course and spotted the blimp going down.

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