Jason Day looks down on the ninth hole during the second round of the U.S. Open on Friday. He missed the cut

ERIN, Wisconsin, June 16 A 94-year-old man who was attending the U.S. Open in Wisconsin died on Friday, the United States Golf Association (USGA) said in statement.

For the first time since the Official World Golf Ranking began in 1986, Nos.

He three-putted on No. 13.

Casey nearly watched his U.S. Open hopes sink with a triple-bogey eight on the par-five 14th hole, and a bogey on the next that dropped him to two under for the tournament.

"I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did", Johnson said.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson (+4), Rory McIlroy (+5) and Jason Day (+10) will all miss the weekend after their struggles.

Shocked residents spoke of a whole family that was trying to flee their home in a vehicle but got caught in "a tornado of flames". France has offered three firefighting planes, while Spain has already sent two water-bombing aircraft to help tackle the fires.

And they had even more company.

And then there was Tommy Fleetwood, a name not many in the USA will be overly familiar with. He shot 73 and missed the cut by three.

Day at least managed to find one positive spin. I got off to a good start, but it sort of caught up with me as the round went on.

Koepka raced out to nine under early in his second round, but dropped two shots on his back nine on his way to a 70. While several golfers have had an outstanding start to their major through the first two days, some of the best of the PGA Tour will have to pack up their bags and go home after missing the cut.

He never would have guessed it. "And I'm kind of going out there and just doing it, and letting it go".

It didn't for McIlroy, either. It's very tight heading into Saturday at Erin Hills. If only he had hit the fairways. That still didn't appear to be almost enough. And even that was frustrating.

Insider Trading at Learning Technologies Group PLC?
The average 1 year price target among analysts that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is GBX 312.89 ($3.96). Finally, Beaufort Securities reissued a "buy" rating on shares of Saga PLC in a research note on Thursday, March 30th.

After pars at 10 and 11, Reed birdied four of the next five holes, including a fantastic chip-in at 12 and a handsome putt at 16, to get to 7-under for the day and could have shot the lowest round of the tournament - it also would have been just the second 8-under round in U.S. Open history - but lipped out a birdie putt on the 18th to finish with a 65, putting him at 8-under for the tournament and right in the mix.

McIlroy, playing for the first time in a month to rest a nagging rib injury, finally got it going when it was too late.

American Justin Thomas equalled the lowest score in major championship history in stunning fashion to surge into contention for the US Open at Erin Hills. He missed almost two months at the start of the year when he was diagnosed with a slight rib fracture, and then the latest break after The Players Championship. But I think at the end of the day it's competitive rounds with a card in my hand that I need and I've been very light on them this year. I think those two things and a lot of hard work, really. McIlroy is headed for the Travelers Championship next week in CT, and he has three straight tournaments starting with the Irish Open through the British Open.

Just about everything already has at Erin Hills. "But I'm just so excited to give myself a great chance to win this golf tournament". "The execution was not there".

It was time to make some changes.

The Masters, unlike the other majors, is the only one sponsored by a private organization and constantly played at Augusta National Golf Club, which opened in 1933.
