Longest US Open ever no prob for co-leader Koepka

Longest US Open ever no prob for co-leader Koepkaā€¯

Johnson, who had struggled to a three-over-par 75 in the first round, carded three birdies and four bogeys in a one-over-par 73.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course, which is what I did on 14", Casey said.

His early exit was particularly perplexing because, Day said, "It's been the best preparation I've had going into a major in my career". I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did. "Unfortunately, I got off to a great start yesterday".

McIlroy however, who is returning from a hip and back injury, put a courageous face on his second consecutive missed cut at a US Open following his exit at the halfway stage in 2016.

McIlroy missed the cut for a second consecutive U.S. Open.

In all, 32 players are within five shots of the lead.

The leaderboard bunched further when Koepka dropped a shot at the sixth to slip to seven under, with Harman birdieing the 16th to join Fleetwood and Casey in a four-way tie.

Lottery joins in manhunt for escaped inmates
The sheriff said he's watched the bus video on a cellphone, and couldn't immediately tell which inmate fired the fatal shots. Dubose is serving a 20-year sentence for armed robbery, aggravated assault and theft from a 2014 case.

Also missing the weekend were No. 2 Rory McIlroy and No. 3 Jason Day, who played together for the first two rounds to disastrous results.

It was the first time since the rankings system was launched in April 1989 that the world's top three players have all failed to make the third round of a major.

"If you look at the golf course and you even talk to me, Jason or Rory, this course sets up ideal for us, " Johnson said.

"As we all know, this game's all about putting", he said. "So I just need to go home, relax a little bit, hang out with the family and I'll see you at the Open Championship in a month". "We get to go home today because Daddy played poorly". I feel like the golf game is there. "And I'm sure it will be rough this weekend". "You've got to make putts". "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".

The cut-line for the top 60 players and fell at one-over.

Major champions Bubba Watson, Jimmy Walker, Charl Schwartzel and Jason Dufner also missed.

Si Woo Kim, who captured The Players Championship a month ago, had a 70 and was at 5-under 139 along with a pair of US Open newcomers. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.

Well, maybe to be voted the world's top player again, just for good measure? "I have a year left in my contract and I think that I'll be here the next year".

World number two McIlroy will have the weekend free after the Northern Irishman added a 71 to his first-round 78 for a 5-over total of 149. Amateur Stewart Hagestad of Deepdale Golf Club in Manhasset shot 75 and missed the cut at 8 over.

Another warm, dry day is drying out the course, and the players are noticing a difference.

"I usually love places like this". McIlroy chalked his poor play up to rust and lack of competitive rounds. I think it's easy to lose track. Hopefully, I've got a lot of the bad stuff out of my system [Thursday] and some parts [Friday].

McIlroy has a hectic schedule again. He'll play Travelers, then head overseas to play the Irish Open, Scottish Open and British Open. Sometimes, they even raise the trophy after 72 holes, a la Shaun Micheel at the 2003 PGA Championship.

That's eight of the next 10 weeks after just seven starts in 2017.

When asked why there is so little separation among the field, Holmes said: "It's so long". Can he become the seventh straight first-time major victor dating to Jason Day's victory at the 2015 PGA Championship?

"With where I was hitting it", he said with a smile, "I wasn't in the way".
