W2W4: Best bets for second half of US Open

"This is the first time I've been in kind of the spotlight".

No doubt, the packed leader board bodes for a wild weekend at Erin Hills, with Paul Casey, Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka tied for the second-round lead at 7-under-par 137.

"Not your typical U.S. Open setup, but I'm a big fan", McIlroy said.

Bill Haas also is off to a nice start, with three birdies and no bogeys through his first eight holes.

Fowler, who held a one shot advantage overnight, cruised through an error free front nine that included two birdies.

"I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

Thomas finished in style, and it had nothing to do with his hot pink trousers.

McIlroy has birdied three of his last four holes. "We're in a good spot".

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

Macron kicks off Paris Air Show with airborne entrance
The deals may be announced as early as this week, when Boeing is likely to unveil plans for the Max 10 at the Paris Air Show. Industry sources say the 190-230 seat plane could attract in the region of 150 orders at the July 19-25 Paris event.

China's Li Haotong, who on Friday became the first player from mainland China to make the cut at a major, bombed out of contention with a 10-over-par 82.

"The finish was awesome". But I think with how long the course is and how long the days are, I'm not sure.

"That means I'm a part of history", he said.

"Over the years, I've gotten a lot better managing that", Stricker said Friday.

But the second-ranked player in the world still has a lot of ground to make up at Erin Hills.

I really like Rickie Fowler's position entering the weekend.

And he still has a long way to go. The cut was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah. Inside the media tent here at Erin Hills, there are people from China to Australia to West Bend. This week, so far, you've had to make birdies your friends, even if the course is playing 7,800-plus yards. He got that up-and-down for a bogey and a 68.

However, of the leading 18 not one has tasted success in a Major and, in fact, you have to look down to those sharing 19 place before singling out a Major Champion and they are reigning Masters victor Sergio Garcia (71) and double Major winning Martin Kaymer (69) at three under. He was 10 under.

Day arrived at Erin Hills a week ago and felt "I put in the best preparation for any major in my career, " he said.

Several casualties, one arrested after person drives vehicle into pedestrians in London
The crash immediately raised concerns of another terrorist attack in London; however, police did not reveal the possible cause. Muslims now are observing Ramadan, during which they fast from dawn to dusk and engage in intense prayer and feast at sundown.

The past six majors have been won by first-timers, and that cycle has a good chance to continue.

Rogness, who is from the Milwaukee area, said he and Blise are longtime golfers.

Even with the course drying out, there simply was not enough wind to frighten anyone on their game.

World number one Dustin Johnson led an unprecedented exodus of big guns at the 117th US Open on Friday as four players grabbed a share of the lead at the halfway stage. Schauffele went 26 consecutive holes without a bogey until he rammed his long birdie putt on No. 9 about 12 feet by the hole and narrowly missed the par putt. Thomas rolled in an 18-footer that went right to left from the edge of the green.

He then bogeyed the 15th hole, hitting it short of the green in two and failing to get up and down.

Then, inexplicably, he lost his putting touch.

He added: "It doesn't matter how good you hit it, if you struggle on the greens, there's nothing you can do". "So I just need to go home, relax a little bit, hang out with the family and I'll see you at the Open Championship in a month".

But the work is not done. The top 18 players on the leaderboard going into the weekend have combined for zero majors. Majority had to come from far back going into the weekend, and it was hard to put together two good rounds.

"I've never played in [one of the final pairings of] a U.S. Open, so tomorrow will be a very cool experience".

Man arrested as van hits mosque crowd
