Sheriff: Pilot in blimp crash seriously burned

A blimp has crashed at the US Open at Erin Hills Golf Course.

His name was to the right with a black number - 3-over par.

Newly branded as the "ultimate test in golf", the U.S. Open has always been famed for its toughness and Erin Hills, the longest ever layout for a U.S. Open, was expected to add to that hard-man reputation.

Johnson may deserve a pass since he arrived late for preparations at Erin Hills to be on hand for Monday's birth of his second child with partner Paulina Gretzky in California.

"I didn't hit it great", he said. "I can't put it any other way other than just there was some good stuff mixed in with a lot of poor stuff". The Canadian 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.

"I was sitting on the seventh tee and my caddie goes, 'Look at that thing, just blew up.'".

That was his last bogey.

"I ran as fast as I could through the tall grass to get to him", Schmidt said, "and I fell three or four times".

"I'm feeling really, really good about this golf course".

"They were trying to give it some throttle and it didn't go up".

After witnessing Sergio Garcia end his major hoodoo at the Masters in April, the American is ready to follow in the Spaniard's footsteps after racing out the blocks on day one of the 117th US Open with seven birdies without loss to open up a one-stroke lead.

Spieth had no stress in his round, hitting every fairway and every green on the back nine and putting for birdie through the opening 12 holes. "So I saw it fluttering down through the sky".

Johnson will have another crack at it on Friday, but failing to take advantage of Thursday's relatively benign conditions could sabotage his chances of making the cut. It says the office had been in touch with the Federal Aviation Administration before the crash and "determined the aircraft was lawfully operating at the proper altitude".
