18, 1 and 2 - as he matched a U.S. Open record for the lowest first-round score in relation to par.

Jason Day made two triple bogeys and closed with a birdie to avoid the indignity of shooting 80.

The fans continued to shower Steve and his wife, Nicki, who is caddying for him, with cheers reserved most of the rest of the day for the top-ranked players in the field.

Stress, in fact, largely left the premises on a bright, breezy day at the first-time U.S. Open course of Erin Hills.

"I finally was able to close the deal this year at Valspar", Hadwin said after his round. "Hopefully I've got a lot of the bad stuff out of my system yesterday and some parts today".

"Simple day when you look back on it".

"You won't get a better day for scoring", Johnson said wistfully during the long walk to sign his card.

Fowler leads US Open at Erin Hills
There was a couple of holes that the bunker kind of sticks out in the middle of the fairway. "They got a kick out of it", he said. One, however, was a great save from the now-infamous Erin Hills fescue that easily could have ballooned his score.

The Englishman began the day one shot behind Fowler and quickly joined the American at the top of the leaderboard. Casey is tied with Rickie Fowler at 7 under for the lead.

Rory McIlroy said before the U.S. Open that if a player could not hit the broad fairways at Erin Hills he might as well go home.

"My short game was great at Wentworth (in the BMW PGA Championship) but my ball-striking is really coming back to its best now and if I keep going then there's no reason I can't be in contention on Sunday".

The same could be said of Day as well, with the Australian admitting he just was not at the races in this opening round.

The world number 14, teeing off on the 10th hole, made a solid start, opening with a par.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia was two shots further back following a 71, with England's Andrew Johnston another shot back on two under.

The 2011 U.S. Open champion didn't hit another fairway after No. 10. For most others, like Henrik Stenson, it was being careless off the tee and facing the rigorous test of recovering.

Lakers are working out Markelle Fultz after all
Philadelphia's 2018 unprotected first-round pick that was acquired from the Lakers has been part of the discussions, sources said. With an All-Star point guard in Isaiah Thomas already, the Celtics would be better suited adding a frontcourt player ideally.

And, although McIlroy also recorded a 71 thanks to four birdies in his last six holes, the damage had already been done by a 78 on Thursday, when a record 44 players had broken par in the benign conditions.

"They want par to be a good score", said English, "and this afternoon it will be". "I was happy it stayed benign for us, and I capitalized on it".

And despite carding four birdies in his last six holes for a 71 on Friday, the four-time major victor saw his own pre-event prediction come true, having said on Tuesday that anyone who could not hit the wide fairways "might as well pack your bags and go home".

Phil Mickelson had to withdraw from the event after realizing he wouldn't arrive on time. He was in California for his daughter's high school graduation, hopeful for enough of a weather delay to jet across the country to Wisconsin. But more storms were in the forecast for Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon, so there's not much chance of Erin Hills getting firm, fast and scary.

At approximately 1:25 p.m., Hartford Rescue personnel and Washington County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the grandstand at No. 6 green for a 94-year-old Wauwatosa, Wis., man who was reported to be non-breathing and without a pulse, according to an official release. Brian Harman, Brooks Koepka (KEHP'-kuh) and Tommy Fleetwood are at 5-under. "I missed one fairway, one green and that was the double bogey (on the 12th)".

The course was set up at 7,845 yards, the longest of any major.

United States lawmakers back at work after shooting, congressman still hospitalized
Vice President Mike Pence earlier on Thursday said he visited MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where Scalise was being treated. Trump added that Scalise, who was shot in the hip Wednesday during a GOP baseball practice in Virginia, was "a great fighter".
