The wrong kind of US Open history: Top 3 all miss cut

Jason Day looks down on the ninth hole during the second round of the U.S. Open on Friday. He missed the cut

That's something Day, the No. 3 player in the world, rarely says at a major.

The lead, however, belonged to Brian Harman.

He was a long shot to make the cut Friday after opening with a 79, his worst score ever in a U.S. 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. And I can hit those shots.

An elderly Wauwatosa man who was with his family at the U.S. Open in Erin Hills died Friday, a law enforcement official confirmed to WISN 12 NEWS. There were 18 rounds in the 60s on Saturday. Jordan Spieth was even par through 12 holes and going nowhere.

Much like Johnson, it takes a lot to get him excited - even a share of the 36-hole lead at the U.S. Open.

Bubba Watson, using a pink golf ball one day and lime green the next, shot 75-73 and appeared certain to miss the cut. "I saw some positives there on the back nine coming in".

Rickie Fowler, on the verge of being left behind, rallied with three straight birdies and shot 68. "Just got to get off to a good, slow start, get conservative and kind of work my way into a solid round". "But I'm looking forward to getting the job done". And if his hot pink trousers were not enough, he did it in style.

Positioned 299 yards from the pin on the par-5 18th, and needing to hole out the shot to make the weekend, he lashed at a 3-wood that hit about pin high, then rolled off the back of the green.

"I s howed up for the last six holes, anyway", said McIlroy, who won at Congressional in 2011 with a record 16-under-par total, but is now a combined 55 over par for his other eight US Open appearances. The two-time major champion is 3 under for his third round at the U.S. Open and has moved into the top 25 at Erin Hills.

The deadly blaze has mushroomed into a political crisis, testing the fragile government of Prime Minister Theresa May . It is feared many are trapped inside the blazing building as the fire broke out in the wee hours of Wednesday.

"The finish was awesome".

"It doesn't affect the game plan one bit, and it doesn't really affect the mindset", he said. About all that save Erin Hills from another onslaught was a forecast for the strongest wind of the week.

"That means I'm a part of history", he said.

"I hit the ball better than I did yesterday, I drove it very well and hit a lot of good iron shots, I just didn't make any putts", Johnson said. This is only his eighth major, and the third time he'll be playing on the weekend. "Obviously, today I definitely had something to show for it". He made an eagle on his final hole at the Sony Open in January to shoot 59, and he went on to break the PGA Tour's 72-hole scoring record.

The U.S. Open didn't seem to faze him, and he delivered a variety of big shots that led to his sensational finish. But he missed a pair of 10-foot birdie chances in that stretch, and one of the birdies he made was a two-putt from 20 feet on the par-5 seventh. It took a hard turn to the right and rolled in. A run of 26 consecutive holes without a bogey ended when he rammed his long birdie putt on No. 9 about 12 feet by the hole and narrowly missed the par putt. The biggest move was made by Justin Thomas.

"It doesn't matter how long, how whatever the course is", Thomas said about the longest course in major championship history.

"It's been the best preparation going into a major", Day told reporters. "I took advantage of it the last few days".

"Even though it's very disappointing to not be here on the weekend, I think these last two rounds will serve me well going into the summer", added the 28-year-old, who has added the Scottish Open to his schedule in between the Irish Open and Open Championship.

Casey said he would not change his approach as he pursues his first major.
