US Open 2017: Rory McIlroy misses cut for second year

He now is a combined 43 over par in 18 U.S. Open rounds since winning the tournament at Congressional in 2011.

BUSY BADGER: No break for Steve Stricker after the U.S. Open.

In the final round at Oakmont previous year, his golf ball moved slightly as he positioned himself for a short putt on the fifth hole. Reavie had five birdies in a six-hole stretch beginning on No. 11.

"You don't often see that in a U.S. Open", Hadwin said. As I've gotten older, I've gotten a little farther, but a lot more straighter.

McIlroy won the US Open with a record 16-under-par total in 2011, but was a combined 50 over par for his seven other appearances before this week and missed the cut at Oakmont a year ago following rounds of 77 and 71.

Under clear skies and warm sunshine, the Erin Hills course still offered plenty of encouragement after a day of record low-scoring on Thursday. "Then clawed all the way back and actually picked up one more to the good by the time we were finished". It was 1 over at Medinah in 1990.

Koepka had the lead until he turned a birdie chance into a bogey on the par-5 first hole after making the turn. When the afternoon wave began, it was at 1 over with a possibility of going to 2 over, depending on the wind. Brian Harman. All at seven under par at Erin Hills.

Washington County Sheriff Dale Schmidt told the United States Golf Association he appeared to die of natural causes. On typical U.S. Open greens, that would have run all the way off the back of the green. Johnson birdied his opening two holes of the second round in his bid to first make sure he had a tee time Saturday, and then try to make up ground on the lead. He's earned four PGA Tour victories and two PGA European Tour titles overall.

Day admitted the course lay-out had played on his mind in both his rounds. Schauffele is playing in his first major championship and is the No. 352 player in the world.

"I think those two things and a lot of hard work, really".

English says "They want par to be a good score, and this afternoon it will be".

"All in all, I've got to be happy", Els said.

Of the top 10 players in the world, only Fowler (No. 9) and Sergio Garcia (No. 7), who shot a 70, broke par.

"I showed up for the last six holes, anyway", said McIlroy.

Few have had a more hair-raising ride at a major than Casey, who playing the Erin Hills back nine first opened with a birdie at the 11th before plunging down the leaderboard with a triple-bogey at 14 and a bogey 15, only to rocket back into contention with five consecutive birdies. This one he'd rather forget. Later, a long put for bogey rolled just right of the hole before he tapped in.

South Korea's Kim Si-Woo and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama were among five players on five under which also included amateur Cameron Champ. He ran off five straight birdies from the 17th to the third and, then, parred his way home with the sort of fortitude once displayed by his childhood hero Nick Faldo in his heyday. He tapped in for par.

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

The 2016 Masters champion withdrew before his tee time in the second round on Friday.

OK, this is his first U.S. Open.
