Leishman in touch in US Open second round

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.

The 23-year-old from San Diego had been having an excellent debut at the Open.

Not that those competing at Erin Hills on Sunday need extra incentive to grab the trophy.

With Holmes one off the lead, who can argue?

"It feels good", he said. "And I'm sure it will be rough this weekend".

For the first time in a major, the top three players in the world all failed to make the cut.

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.

"The course will probably be longer".

A 94-year-old spectator has died at the U.S. Open.

"I started to let it go towards the end and show what I can do". Former US Open champion Ernie Els chose the 20th anniversary of his last victory in the tournament to remind fans that he is not quite ready to be put out to grass. He's got the strength and skill to compete into the weekend.

The four players tied for the lead - Paul Casey, Brooks Koepka, Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood - created the largest 36-hole logjam in 43 years at the U.S. Open.

Niebrugge, Talor Gooch and Kevin Dougherty, who each played at Oklahoma State, were grouped together in the first two rounds.

Still to be determined was who made it to the weekend, and where the cut would fall. "And we talked about that and said the purses really should reflect that". You've got 156 of the best players in the world here.

"Rickie was up there [and] us three played pretty solid", Niebrugge said.

It was great to watch an interview with McIlroy earlier this week when it was pointed out that some of the fairways at Erin Hills are close to 60 yards wide and if you're driving it into the fescue, then you're likely not playing well enough to win the U.S. Open anyway. That dropped shot represented the first of three straight bogeys. 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.

"It was definitely a lot more like a US Open today than yesterday the greens were a little quicker again", Leishman said. "It's tough out there. He keeps me smiling". He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.

Willett, 29, has had recurring back issues during his career. "Working hard to get back but the body and swing not allowing it".

Thomas broke the U.S. Open record for low round in relation to par.

Just about everything already has at Erin Hills. After another week, it's the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship.

Playing just his seventh tournament of the year due to a rib injury, McIlroy bounced back with a birdie from 12 feet on the 13th, but carded a hat-trick of birdies from the first before his encouraging late rally.

"Next week is for totally different purposes".

The USGA said it would provide complimentary bottled water at all drinking water stations for the rest of the tournament.

"You know, this is a golf course, that I really like this golf course", Johnson said.
