The Wrong Kind of US Open History: Top 3 All Miss Cut

Free bottled water to be given to US Open spectators after E coli traces found

ERIN, Wisconsin, June 16 Big hitters Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day were expected to thrive on the wide open fairways of Erin Hills, hosting Wisconsin's first U.S. Open.

Starting the day in a respectable position of even-par, Adam Scott sealed his exit with a disappointing 75.

He made the turn at 6-under 30, just one off the U.S. Open record of 29 for nine holes.

World number one Johnson becomes the ninth player to miss the cut having won the USGA's blue ribbon event 12 months previous.

It was the first time since the world ranking began in 1986 that the top three players missed the cut in any major.

Englishmen Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood and Americans Brian Harman and Brooks Koepka are sitting at seven-under, a shot ahead of Fowler, also of the United States, who had a one-over-par and is tied with compatriots J.B. Holmes and Jamie Lovemark.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course".

Rickie Fowler's seven-under-par on Thursday also tied the record lowest first-round score at a U.S. Open.

Speaking about the changes he made past year, Fleetwood added: "I went back to my old coach and had one of my best mates caddying and I think that can't be underestimated, having your friend with you, whether you're leading the US Open or playing a casual round at home".

The quartet are seven under at Erin Hills after a Friday that saw Japan's Hideki Matsuyama surge up a congested leaderboard with a stunning seven-under 65, while the world's top-ranked players were unable to stage recoveries.

AU concerned about growing row in the Gulf
Yet, contradictory signals from Washington are making the efforts at stabilizing the situation still more hard . Al Jazeera , with its independent coverage, has been unpalatable to the Gulf monarchies for some time now.

But Koepka was even better, carding four birdies on his bogey-free outward nine as both players settled in at nine-under with nine to play.

"I think people - some of the guys took my social media post kind of the wrong way", Na said. I got off to a good start but it sort of caught up with me as the round went on.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said, referring to his status in the first-person plural after shooting 1-over 73.

Casey then reignited his charge birding his eighth hole and ended the run with a "3" at his 12th. "When it is the US Open and you're leading it is a different type of pressure because it is new so I'll see how that goes tomorrow".

But it was too little too late for the Northern Irishman who remains anchored near the bottom of the leaderboard at five over.

Spieth has two rounds ahead of him, but he will need some far better performances in order to make a run at his second career U.S. Open title.

Two of the pre-tournament favourites flamed out at the year's second major on Friday, struggling through 36 holes on a golf course that seemed ideally suited for them.

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 at six over par he remained five shots outside the projected cut mark. And if that's not enough of a traffic jam at the top, 18 players are separated by three shots to start the third round.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia, who shot a 1-under 71, says "I think the greens are getting U.S. Open-like, but not as firm as they're going to get if we don't get any rain. Part of that is just age and part I'll give credit to Johnny McLaren (his caddie), credit to my wife and my little boy".
