Zach Johnsopn makes the cut at the US Open

The trio's struggles were all the more surprising given that low scores were there to be had for all.

But only for a couple minutes. And I pulled the four-iron on the par-three (sixth).

Meanwhile, the wind has died so much that while the course is getting firm and the greens a little crusty, it hasn't affected the scoring.

Matsuyama is playing in his fifth U.S. Open.

After weeks of pouring his heart and soul into qualifying for the first U.S. Open played in Wisconsin, Madison's Steve Stricker was right where he wanted to be after the tournament's second round. "To shoot a good round like today, I'm certainly looking forward to the weekend".

Don't try this at home. Also, Fowler has never won one.

It didn't work all that well.

Dustin Johnson missed the cut at Erin Hills and so is out of the US Open but the world number one insists that he is not down about his game. He shot 75 and missed the cut. He got a close look at some of Erin Hills' notoriously thick fescue, but he wasn't alone.

Furyk reached 10-under 200 with a 67 in the third round at Olympia Fields, giving him a three-shot lead over Stephen Leaney of Australia. Rickie Fowler accomplished the feat in the first round, and Hideki Matsuyama and Chez Reavie hit the number Thursday.

Champ had five birdies and two bogeys Friday. It's hard to make a lot of birdies for me around here.

Charley Hoffman is all by himself on top of the U.S. Open — for now. So whatever happens I'll be doing my best and seeing how well I can finish.

But the Englishman recovered magnificently with five straight birdies from the 17th, and a 71 left him sharing the lead. Finnis, who looped for Fleetwood in his amateur heyday, has the complete trust of his boss when it comes to on-course decision-making. And he's giving the fans something to cheer. The only disappointment was a three-putt bogey from 35 feet on the final hole.

Stricker shot a 69 to move to 2 under going into the final round.

"I've never led a U.S. Open, so tomorrow will be a very cool experience".

Stricker, who turned 50 this year, seems to be rejuvenated on the course. He just has to listen to the crowd.

And the prime beneficiary was American Thomas, who catapulted up the leaderboard with a record-breaking nine-under-par 63. By the end of the day, Oosthuizen was eight shots back of leader Brian Harman. His ball landed on the green and only rolled out about 10 feet.

Amateur Scottie Scheffler is playing with the poise of a veteran at the U.S. Open.

Fowler, the world number nine from California, revelled in benign conditions at Erin Hills Golf Course to reel off seven birdies and 11 pars in a superb 65.

It was the second time in four holes that fortune had favored Fleetwood.

The player hit four birdies as he closed out his round, but the effort wasn't enough to save him. He won't play again until the British Open. "I got off to a great start yesterday - I birdied the first hole".

Low scores were available. "So that kind of takes the advantage away from the bombers". Fowler's streak ended at 28 holes, however, when he went just long on the 11th hole and had to chip sideways to have any chance of a reasonable par putt.

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.

Of the 68 players who made the cut, 42 are under par. He is 1 over for his round with six holes.

Erin Hills fought back on Friday and the world's top three players won't be around for the weekend at the U.S. Open.

Johnson, ranked No. 1 in the world, missed the cut after a 1-over 73, which came a day after he shot 75.

The big-hitting American started strong with back-to-back birdies but missed putts late on to cost him the chance of becoming the first player to defend his US Open title since Curtis Strange in 1989.

We'll find out over the next 36 holes.
