US Open filled with limitless possibilities, few stars

Oosthuizen, whose sole major title to date came at St Andrews in 2010, birdied the first, fourth, seventh and eighth to move to four under par, while 2015 victor Spieth had covered his first 11 holes in level par.

After Sergio Garcia finally won his first major title this year at The Masters, the "best player yet to win a Major" label quickly attached itself to Fowler.

The cut was projected at one-over. "I guess it's rare you get through a U.S. Open or any major without some kind of hiccup".

Rickie Fowler looked to move clear at the top of the US Open leaderboard on Friday as rivals Rory McIlroy and Jason Day headed for the exit.

Thomas, who was tied for the lead at the time at 9-under, made a decision to go for the green from a little over 300 yards out.

Elsewhere, playing partners Fleetwood and Harman again matched each other by following up Thursday's 67 with a two-under 70 to reach the half-way stage atop the leaderboard.

Then, inexplicably, he lost his putting touch.

"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", McIlroy said. He hammered a chip from just short of the par-5 14th that led to another three-putt bogey.

"It feels great. I came in this week with no expectations really at all", said the 22-year-old.

Arnold Palmer's 1960 US Open win honored at Erin
The 54-hole leader, Brian Harman , entered Sunday's final round attempting to become the first left-handed player to win the U.S. Koepka carried a one-stroke lead into the back nine after a birdie at No. 8, but quickly fell back into a tie with Harman.

Paul Casey is the latest example of how little it takes to record a big number in the U.S. Open.

The 2011 champion dropped back to seven over on his third hole today, before bouncing back with birdie on the following hole and made it to the turn remaining at six over par. No harm, no foul.

Casey laid up in the rough on the par-5 14th hole. His second shot drifted off the fairway, and his third was over the green in the fescue. "I actually made a good bogey on 17". So there he stood at two under and seemingly out of the picture.

"I was in the hay too much over the last couple of days", Day said. "But I'm a pretty happy man".

This is the longest course on tour this year, but if the 50-year-old can manage to keep it in the fairways, he's got an opportunity to pick up some strokes on the golfers now ahead of him. Lots of talent, just looking for that one break-out moment. "So it's going to be a dog fight, and be a U.S. Open over the weekend". His best finish was fourth in 2014 at Pinehurst.

In the final round at Oakmont past year, his golf ball moved slightly as he positioned himself for a short putt on the fifth hole. Then he stumbled a bit in his next three starts on the PGA Tour. Reavie birdied five of his first seven holes, and eight in all Friday, to surge back into contention. He went from pouring putts into the center of the cup to burning the edges, and his 39 on the back nine cost him the lead, though not his chances of breaking through for that first major. He missed a six-foot putt on his last hole, which would have given him sole possession of the lead.

"The worst thing I can do is go and force it, because that's not my game".

"I couldn't have shot any higher", Johnson said.
