Former Cowboy Rickie Fowler leads US Open

The timing could be flawless. He won't play again until the British Open.

The incident happened at around 11:55am with the opening round of the season's second major under way at Erin Hills. Last year's victor, Dustin Johnson, is on the opposite end of the spectrum.

Casey then reignited his charge birding his eighth hole and ended the run with a "3" at his 12th.

According to the Washington County sheriff's office, at about 1:25 p.m., Hartford rescue personnel were dispatched to the grandstand at the sixth hole when a man was reported to be without a pulse and not breathing.

Most freaky about this day was that as many amateurs broke par as top 10 players in the world - two apiece. He's back at 1 under as he finishes his round on the front nine.

World number one Dustin Johnson was facing a battle of his own to make the cut.

"I had been swinging it well and it felt really, really good a couple holes later to be picking the ball out of the hole for a birdie". It did not end well.

More funding may be added to GOP health plan
The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that the House bill will result in 23 million more people being uninsured by 2026 . Asked if she was frustrated and whether she wishes there were hearings on the legislation, she answered: "Yes".

McIlroy however, who is returning from a hip and back injury, put a courageous face on his second consecutive missed cut at a US Open following his exit at the halfway stage in 2016. His third shot hooked into gnarly rough in an awkward stance above a bunker. "But I think definitely getting a lot speedier, a lot faster". Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood, playing together, were tied for fourth at 6 under.

It's shaping up as a sweltering day on this course, located about 40 miles from Milwaukee. Temperatures were in the low 80s with a light breeze.

Before the tournament began, four-times major victor McIlroy, one of the game's best drivers of the ball, had spoken about how eager he was to attack the long, links-styled, rolling farmland course off the tee.

With high hopes entering the week, Jason Day fell far out of contention early at the 2017 U.S. Open.

Matsuyama was in the center of the fairway, 103 yards from the cup, when he made his eagle.

Fears Rickie Fowler could run away with the lead never materialised with the American falling back into the pack with a one over par 73 to now be sharing fifth place at six under.

Just about everything already has at Erin Hills.

Falling: McIlroy, Day endure nightmare rounds at US Open
Leishman is now sharing eighth place, only three shots back of co-leaders Rickie Fowler and England's Paul Casey at seven-under. Such low scoring might suggest the 11-year-old course was a cream puff, hardly the USGA's idea of the ultimate test in golf.

Australian world No.3 Day carded a disastrous seven-over-par 79 during Thursday's first round at debut US Open host Erin Hills in Wisconsin.

No matter. He shot 38 on his first nine but rallied for 33 on his second nine.

And then, Fowler took a second straight bogey at No. 12 to fall one shot behind Brooks Koepka. It's got a U.S. Open feel to it.

But the second-ranked player in the world still has a lot of ground to make up at Erin Hills. Kaymer opened with birdie and Spieth made par.

Triple-bogeys have a way of sinking a round, but somehow that wasn't the situation for Paul Casey on Friday at the U.S. Open.

Phil Mickelson was a long shot to play in this U.S. Open, and the odds got even longer with a forecast of no chance of rain Thursday.

Rickie Fowler has some company on top of the U.S. Open leaderboard. He missed the Masters in 1994 while recovering from a broken leg suffered in a skiing accident.
