Don't mow the fescue, pleads McIlroy

There could be a lot more birdies on the course.

"But getting back to the question of momentum, I think it's more about the confidence levels that you build up over good results".

For Day, it's a little peace of mind after a rough time at the start of the year. "No matter how easy a hole might seem, stress-free pars are always going to be good in a US Open, and patience".

"But (Day's) family is over here and I understand that because I went through that, too".

A total of 73 more made it to Erin Hills through qualifying, while six other slots were to be filled before the start of the opening round.

Even Justin Rose, who is a fan of the course, said that going in to the fescue felt more than a one stroke penalty, while USGA Executive Director Mike Davis admitted that the fescue was "thicker than maybe we would have anticipated".

Day withdrew from the Dell Technologies Match Play in March so he could be with his mother.

And it has already paid dividends - Scott's best results for 2017 have been at the Masters (tied ninth) in April and the Players Championship (tied sixth) in May. Johnson played the last seven holes not knowing if he would be penalized, and thus not knowing the score.

"Obviously, everybody is telling me that I might take Phil's spot", Diaz said after his practice round Monday. "I've added a few events to my schedule, so looking forward to a busy summer".

Erin - Rory McIlroy has hit back at criticism of the challenging rough at Erin Hills as the Wisconsin course prepares to host the US Open for the first time this week.

Last year's victor, Dustin Johnson, is the only player favored ahead of McIlroy by Vegas odds, followed by Jason Day, Spieth and Ricky Fowler rounding out the top five.

"It's overwhelming at times, the amount of people that are coming up to me and wishing me luck", Stricker said. If I pick one (a win) up here, great. That would be a really neat thing to be able to win my first two majors in the state of Wisconsin.

"This golf course allows you to do that". They're tremendous golf courses. The fairways are probably the biggest they've ever been in the US Open, especially that I've played.

He won the Farmers Insurance Open in January and has recorded five more top-five finishes to zoom up the world rankings to number 10.

But I'm going to, as I said, play quite a lot this summer.

The 50-year-old Stricker, a 12-times victor on the PGA Tour who ranked as high as second in the world rankings, has pared down his tournament golf in recent seasons and played just eight events on the PGA Tour this season.

Some players in the field for the year's second major that gets underway on Thursday had grumbled about how hard it was to advance the ball out of the fescue that stood nearly knee high.
