Falling: McIlroy, Day endure nightmare rounds at US Open

16 June 2017

ERIN, Wisconsin Big-hitting Dustin Johnson was one of the biggest disappointments in Thursday's opening round of the U.S. Open as the defending champion and world number one shot three-over 75 to languish 10 shots behind leader Rickie Fowler.

Kaymer, who won the U.S. Open at Pinehurst in 2014, and Johnson, who won previous year at Oakmont, joined Spieth in an early-morning three-ball featuring the past three U.S. Open champions. Jason Day made two triple bogeys and closed with a birdie to avoid the indignity of shooting 80.

Two more birdies at the start of his inward nine pushed him to six under and a seventh on his 16th hole of the day saw him finish at seven under.

Fellow Americans Brooks Koepka and Brian Harman shot 5-under 67s Thursday.

The man was the only person aboard when the craft went down shortly before midday at the Erin Hills golf course in Erin, Wisconsin.

Garcia carded an eagle, three birdies and three bogeys in a roller coaster round.

"I just didn't putt very well", Johnson said. But, yeah, it is a ball-striker's golf course overall. "I didn't play that bad", Johnson said.

"But as far as U.S. Open courses go, I feel like this one suits me the best".

Although he faces a tough ask if he is to survive the cut, which features the top 60 and ties, McIlroy - who was 143rd of the 156 players after the first round - claimed: "I feel like I'm capable".

How much time could Bill Cosby face?
Steele said the once-beloved Jello pitchman and "America's Dad" even referred to himself as a "dirty old man". But District Attorney Kevin Steele said those inconsistencies were minor and little more than a distraction.

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.

His dad recently sent him a photo of the family celebrating with the U.S. Open trophy.

"He did have some burns, but that, we're assuming, probably was a huge factor in protecting him", she said. Ryder Cup hero Patrick Reed, another seeking his first major, was in a foursome at 68.

This is the same daughter who almost caused Mickelson to withdraw from the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2.

Mickelson has won every major championship except the U.S. Open, and it's a tournament that he has finished second six times. "I was trying to give an in-the-ropes point of view so people could see what we were dealing with".

His score was eventually amended from five under par to four, but it made no difference to the result as he finished three strokes clear of Jim Furyk, Shane Lowry and Scott Piercy. He hit only missed two fairways (12 of 14) and three greens in regulation (15 of 18) during his opening round.
