Casey rides rollercoaster up US Open leaderboard

Tommy Fleetwood continued to shine on his US Open debut as he claimed a share of the halfway lead with a second-round 70 at Erin Hills. I wanted to experience our first U.S. Open more than anything here in our state.

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland reacts after finishing on the ninth green during the second round of the 2017 US Open.

After opening with a 79, Jason Day's struggles continued with a second-round 75 ensuring he ended the longest active streak of cuts made (17) at the majors. He started strong with back-to-back birdies and hovered around the cut line for part of Friday afternoon, but missed putts late cost him the chance to become the first player to defend his U.S. Open title since Curtis Strange in 1989. He had five finishes in the top 10.

"The majors have a different feel and sound to the roars and to hear the crowd go insane when I holed that putt on 18 was really cool", said Thomas, whose back-to-back wins in Hawaii in January included an opening 59 in the Sony Open.

"Shooting a good score today gave me a lot of confidence", Matsuyama said. "And I felt the most calm I have in a major in a long time this week.Unfortunately this didn't pan out". More important, he was happy with how he played Friday and remained optimistic that he could carry that over to the weekend. "But at least I'll get to sit in air con [conditioning] and watch the guys tear it up on the weekend". Matsuyama, a 25-year-old, four-time PGA Tour victor from Japan, had a putt for birdie on the par-5 18th hole, which would have been only the second 8-under round in U.S. Open history, matching Johnny Miller's 63 at par-71 Oakmont in 1973. He missed almost two months at the start of the year when he was diagnosed with a slight rib fracture, and then the latest break after The Players Championship. "If I have to wake up with the same feelings tomorrow, I'm going to have a chance". I got off to a pretty good start, which I really haven't done yet, so that was nice.

"I've got a busy summer, so I'm excited to play a lot of golf". I've known my game could be capable. with my distance and my wedge game. It's just a matter of getting competitive rounds under my belt.

Father's Day marks what could be the final day of the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills, and from the merchandise tent to the actual tournament itself, some worked to make it a weekend devoted to dad.

And then, Fowler took a bogeys at Nos.

Discussing his woes at the long 14th, Casey added: "It was all my own fault, but a good display of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course, which is what I did". "I feel like that's going to help me to get back into contention and hopefully try to win some of these things". Yesterday, coming off an injury, I was a little anxious going out there.

After a distinguished amateur career that included victories at the 2009 Scottish Amateur Stroke Play and 2010 English Amateur, Fleetwood's first win on the European Tour came in 2013.

In the final round at Oakmont a year ago, his golf ball moved slightly as he positioned himself for a short putt on the fifth hole.

"I could not have hit that three-wood to the last (from 299 yards) any better if I tried, just a little high cut and I was very fortunate for the overnight rain for the ball to stay there".
