USGA Slows Greens, Alters Hole Locations for Sunday at 2018 US Open

Reed, who won the Masters in April, produced one of the better Saturday scores, as he shot a one-over 71 to get within three shots of the lead.

The best players in the world were no match for a Shinnecock Hills course that even the USGA conceded got out of hand Saturday.

Johnson estimated that he had six or seven putts Saturday that he feared rolling off the greens. No one from the final 22 groups could match par.

I prefer a tougher test.

Davis promised to slow down the course for Sunday's final round.

Johnson carded a 7-over-par 77 but still found himself sharing the lead after surviving brutal conditions as Koepka set himself up for a shot at successfully defending his title.

"This is why I practice and play because I want to be in this position to have a chance to win golf tournaments", said Berger, who will tee off with Finau at 2:24 p.m. But with the greens the way they got - I had seven or eight putts that easily could have gone in the hole that didn't.

Players can expect a mostly sunny day, topping out at 78 degrees with nearly no chance of rain throughout the day.

Chavarin told police he was the only occupant of the vehicle, but a woman walking in the area discovered Leiato's body. Police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin says the Kia sedan driven by a 22-year-old man rolled off the road at 2:30 a.m.

Rose, the 2013 champion, shot a three-over 73 at Shinnecock Hills to end four over and trail Dustin Johnson, Daniel Berger, Tony Finau, and Brooks Koepka. It held the second U.S. Open in 1896, and then went 90 years until its next one.

Woods and Mickelson are among 19 players who played in the last U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.

But then there was Ian Poulter, who more than anyone was robbed on 15 and after playing what seemed to be the flawless bunker shot on 15 but only to look on in total amazement when his ball kept rolling, and rolling, and rolling before coming to rest some 60-feet beyong the flag and now off the green from where "Poults" took bogey on route to a round of 76 for a share of 10th place at seven-over. "It's going to take a special round tomorrow, but at least you have the opportunity".

Berger and Finau had no idea how big a benefit.

"I barely made the cut". I feel like - like I said, there's nobody more confident. He added, "I would have liked about 6 mulligans today". "You can eliminate them pretty much right away".

The U.S. Open is traditionally the toughest test in golf, but this iteration has drawn ire from almost everyone who has played it (or sat in hours of traffic trying to reach it). Most importantly, he made just two bogeys on a day when the average score was more than 76.

By the time the leaders teed off, Shinnecock's greens were hard and fast, and players could only watch as good approach shots rolled off the domed putting surfaces and lightly tapped putts skated past the hole.

As he struggled, England's Justin Rose and Sweden's Henrik Stenson tussled for the lead.

Billions in new tariffs signal start of US-China 'trade war'
The tariffs were in response to complaints that China requires or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology. In the statement , Trump said those measures would be implemented only if the Chinese strike back at Friday's move.

There's also a chance a past major champion outside of the top 10 makes a Sunday move, with Webb Simpson, Justin Thomas and Zach Johnson five shots back. All through the practice rounds the players were honing their skills on trademark US Open glass-quick greens. "I mean, for the most part, we all had to play this afternoon".

William McGirt tweeted, "Mike Davis and his crew could ruin Christmas". "It's the U.S. Open". When is enough enough?

Not all the statements were verbal.

He went from behind the 13th green all the way off the front. His bogey putt slid by, and after a few putts, Mickelson trotted after it and then stuck out his putter and hit the ball back toward the cup to keep it from running off the green.

With the two-stroke penalty Mickelson took a sextuple bogey 10.

Playing alongside Andrew "Beef" Johnston Saturday, Mickelson and his playing partner chuckled about the incident walking to the 14 tee.

So it made sense when Austin shrugged and said, "What good is yelling and getting mad at the USGA gonna do?" "I know it's a two-shot penalty". "[Saturday's] round, I didn't feel like I played badly at all - 7 over usually is a awful score". It's my understanding of the rules.
