US Open: How the Irish have fared on Day 2

US Open: How the Irish have fared on Day 2

His most recent top-10 was T7 at the Dean & Deluca Invitational.

Leishman is now sharing eighth place, only three shots back of co-leaders Rickie Fowler and England's Paul Casey at seven-under.

Sitting two shots back with the clubhouse lead is Paul Casey who survived a rollercoaster round that included a gut-wrenching triple-bogey and a thrilling run of five straight birdies.

English duo Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood are in a four-way tie for the lead after two rounds of the US Open. And none of them was particularly close on a first-time major championship layout that has played soft. Unlikely as it seems, that was the last major he played on the weekend.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said, referring to his status in the first-person plural after shooting 1-over 73. He just won't play on the weekend at the U.S. Open.

After tying for 45th at the Memorial last month, Matsuyama arrived at Erin Hills on a downturn in a topsy-turvy season.

Under clear skies and warm sunshine, the Erin Hills course still offered plenty of encouragement after a day of record low-scoring on Thursday. The USGA is providing complimentary bottled water the rest of the week.

The health department says no one has reported becoming sick after drinking the water and E. coli bacteria have not been found at other hydration stations.

NOTEWORTHY: A 94-year-old man stopped breathing while in a grandstand on the sixth hole and died of what officials said appeared to be natural causes.

As a result, the USA said it would not join those sections of the communique on climate and multilateral development banks. McKenna was asked about a report in the German news magazine Der Spiegel on June 9 that said Mr.

Japan's Satoshi Kodaira was making the biggest move of the day, opening with back-to-back birdies and adding two more at 11 and 12 to reach three-under for the championship, four back of the pacesetters.

It's not the kind of leaderboard that makes someone cancel their weekend plans to stay home and watch the last two rounds of the U.S. Open. It didn't matter at that point, because I was so far from the cut line. Schauffele went 26 consecutive holes without a bogey until he rammed his long birdie putt on No. 9 about 12 feet by the hole and narrowly missed the par putt. He shot 75 and missed the cut. And I can hit those shots. "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did".

McIlroy was never in the short grass from the 11th hole to the end on Thursday when he opened with a career-worst 78, and he didn't do almost enough in the second round until it was far too late. McIlroy said his transition was too quick, that he would get to the top of his swing and then essentially lunge at the ball.

Despite a flurry of late birdies it was not enough to turnaround an erratic round littered with errors and missed opportunities. New ground, in more ways than one, is being broken in this first staging of a US Open in the state of Wisconsin.

He finished 27th two years ago and earned a big $64,000 pay day.

Casey laid up in the rough, took two chops to get out of more rough behind the 14th green, and staggered away with a triple-bogey 8 that might have ruined his day at Erin Hills.

The Englishman rallied with a string of five birdies in a row on the way to a 71 that put the smile back on his face and his name on top of the leaderboard at Erin Hills.

"Not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card", Casey said.

"As good as I got", he told Spieth, smiling as he walked with him down the fairway.
