US Open snippets from second round at Erin Hills

Erin Hills is a walking-only course, and push carts aren't allowed, so you have to hump your own bag around.

Stricker laid up to 101 yards with his second shot and fired at the pin at No. 18, his ninth hole of the day. Casey, who began the day one shot back of Fowler, found trouble when he flew his approach out of rough over the green at the par-five 14th, his fifth, into the deep fescue and needed five more strokes to get in the cup.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said.

At least he's still playing this weekend. Even that looks like an arduous task in part because of the massive scrum near the top of the leaderboard and in part because the length of the course doesn't lend itself to a ton of birdie opportunities for players such as Stricker, Jim Furyk and Zach Johnson who rely on precision more than distance.

He was at 7-under 137, two shots clear of anyone else who played early in warm sunshine on a course that getting dry and crispy. He's done this before.

The disappointed 21-year-old declined to be interviewed. I think the more rounds I can play, I'm hopefully going to get rid of all that stuff and hopefully strip it down to what you saw the last six holes.

Every year they claim they set up the US Open course to "identify the best players in the world", while the players retort that the USGA sets up a course to "humiliate the best players in the world".

"Just excited to get on a run of golf and get going".

Aware that this is a priority for the EU, May is reportedly set to make a "generous offer" on the issue early in the talks.

And yet, Thomas won't even walk to the first tee box Sunday with the lead.

Mr. Wisconsin made the cut on the number.

"It's going to be a fun weekend", he said. "Definitely had some mojo out there".

Rory McIlroy hit back at suggestions he was "bored" with golf after missing the cut in the US Open for the second year in succession.

The top three golfers in the world, and six of the top 10, didn't make it.

"Rickie was up there (and) us three played pretty solid", Niebrugge said.

McIlroy was never in the short grass from the 11th hole to the end on Thursday when he opened with a career-worst 78, and he didn't do almost enough in the second round until it was far too late.

They are followed by Hideki Matsuyama, at -5. Reavie moved to 4-under 140, three shots back of the lead on a bunched-up leaderboard.

Justin Thomas played two seasons for the Alabama men's golf team before turning professional in 2013. ERIN, Wis. (AP ) - Tommy Fleetwood had no problem picking out his best shot of the day .

"I think at the end of the day, it's competitive rounds and get the card in my hand", McIlroy said.

What he did was make nine birdies and an eagle, drive a par-4 green with a 3-wood, and shoot the lowest score in relation to par in the history of the U.S. Open. Make no mistake, though, the most important reason Stricker is still working hard is because he hasn't given up on adding to those 12 victories on his PGA Tour resume. "It's tough out there". If I do hit it well, I'm all right.

BACKING OUT: Back problems forced Danny Willett to pull out of another tournament. But the former Irish Open victor posted one under for the back nine to get into the clubhouse just inside the cut mark. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.

"Well another disappointing week comes to an end", Willett posted on Twitter.

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

Just about everything already has at Erin Hills. After another week, it's the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship. He was 13th past year at Oakmont.

"Next week is for totally different purposes".

"It was nice to get the saves, for sure", he said.

Previously, Head of the Central Bank of Azerbaijan (CBA) Elman Rustamov said that increase in the key interest rate of the U.S. The drop in bond yields sent interest rates lower, which reduces the profits banks can make from mortgages and other loans.

The Wisconsin native is a fan favorite in the first Open in his home state. Felt like I had a good feel for the speed of the greens today, hit a lot of good lag putts.
