The wrong kind of US Open history: Top 3 all miss cut

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

T1. Brooks Koepka (-7): Koepka entered Day 2 in the mix and came away tied for the lead thanks to an incredible bogey-free back nine in which he carded a 32.

Day at least managed to find one positive spin. He spent all day in the knee-high fescue and shot 78, his worst U.S. Open score.

It doesn't need to be too much of a change for this golf course to play pretty hard.

The 29-year-old, who won his maiden major title at the 2015 US PGA Championship, said the dismal result had come as a surprise given his intense practice in the lead-up. "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".

Rory McIlroy is further back on 5-over and will miss the cut after carding a 71 in his second round.

A fellow named Xander Schauffele, who ranks 352nd in the world, and a Texas A&M bomber who goes by the catchy Cameron Champ are a combined 10-under par heading into the weekend.

He had struggled through a nagging rib injury that has limited him to six tournaments this year, but was buoyed by his second round at Erin Hills after complaining about feeling rusty after his substandard opening 18 holes. "There's no secret that I'm very fiery and a competitor and I've let my emotions get the best of me for sure so I'm understanding that if I can control those I certainly have a better chance of playing well". That still didn't appear to be almost enough.


Champ said a practice round with former British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen and four-times major victor McIlroy on Monday helped his confidence.

His schedule will pick up immediately. He's playing the Travelers Championship next week, then after a week off heads to the Irish Open, the Scottish Open and The Open in consecutive weeks. "I'm looking forward to how it unfolds over the weekend".

Johnson, who had bullishly expected to do well on a course he believed to be perfectly suited to his game, admitted he was surprised to be out after only 36 holes. "If the sun stays like it is and the wind keeps baking this golf course out, it's pretty treacherous on the weekend, which is just what I would like, and I think what the rest of the players want to see".

"The biggest thing about this course is that the fairways are massive", Day said. But he wasn't doing much of anything right, especially off the tee.

"I think with everything so large, your target is larger and your misses get even more extreme".

"They threw some (tough) pins in there and didn't bother to move tees up or anything today", Hadwin said. "The execution was not there".

The Northern Irishman won the Open Championship and US PGA in 2014, meaning he needs only to win the Masters to become the sixth player to complete a career grand slam. "So I switched it around and it's a very different feel after the first few holes".
