US Open a success for pair of Wisconsin golfers

US Open a success for pair of Wisconsin golfers”

The cut was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah.

Despite the ridiculous length of Erin Hills - the tab came to 7,839 yards on Day 2 - and a modest breeze for much of the day that, in theory, should have started the process of separating the wheat from the chaff, there's less clarity after 36 holes than there was before Thursday's opening tee shot, which doesn't seem possible. "Part of that is just age and part I'll give credit to Johnny McLaren (his caddie), credit to my wife and my little boy". Meaning into the long, nasty fescue rough areas that line most holes. That was a US Open best in a single round. Even that final hole failed to improve his mood.

Reed is tied with Charley Hoffman and Tommy Fleetwood for the lead at 8 under.

The U.S. Open golf tournament at Erin Hills has already featured plenty of drama on the course, but a series of freakish and tragic occurrences off the course are dominating the headlines at the Wisconsin venue. "Looking forward to the next two days".

His 13-foot putt for birdie at the par-5 seventh moved him to 3 under for the day and 4 under for the tournament. He just didn't know how much history. You can see it getting there. "It doesn't scare me to have to hit 3- or 4-irons".

Among the early starters on another steamy day at Erin Hills in Hartford, Wisconsin, Casey survived a hair-raising round that included a gut-wrenching triple-bogey and a thrilling run of five straight birdies and ended with him signing for one-under 71. He wasn't alone; the Erin Hills course that torpedoed such favorites as Irmo's Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day after 36 holes continued to wreak havoc on some of the game's best. He is now a combined 55 over par for his other eight US Open appearances.

He was a long shot to make the cut on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) after opening with a 79, his worst score ever in a US Open, and he removed any suspense when he hit a wedge over the green at No. 2 (his 11th hole) and then started hitting his tee shots in the hay.

"Tomorrow will be a very cool experience", Fleetwood said. Before assuming Kisner blamed all his Saturday woes on the course setup, here's the rest of the story.

Mickelson had kept fans and officials guessing nearly down to the wire, hanging on to the long shot hope that storms might delay the start of the year's second major and allow him to attend the graduation and then fly from San Diego to Wisconsin to make his tee time. "I could be playing fine if I was doing the things I normally do well".

The 26-year-old from Southport, who finished a shot ahead of Johnson to claim his second European Tour title in Abu Dhabi in January, said: "It's going to be great". After a 10th-place finish at The PLAYERS Championship, Noren enjoyed a massive come-from-behind win at the BMW PGA Championship.

A 94-year-old spectator has died at the U.S. Open. "But obviously, I haven't done that here. It was a bit of a roller coaster round but if you can get through any Major with a hiccup like I had you have to be delighted, and I am".

To realize what most observers believe is his potential, he does.

With the cut falling at one over par, the entire field was separated by just eight shots - but for the first time since the rankings were introduced in 1986, none of the world's top three will be around for the weekend. "That's pretty bad", he agreed.

"With where I was hitting it", he said with a smile, "I wasn't in the way". "That's why I'm tied for 60 instead of top-10".

His withdrawal marked the end of a golfing era with the 117th US Open becoming the first major to not include Mickelson and/or Tiger Woods since the 1994 Masters.

Once again golfers were taking full advantage of an Erin Hills layout softened by overnight rain, attacking the pins with gusto and none more than Thomas, who had six birdies on a blistering outward nine.
