Four share lead at US Open

It's not the kind of leaderboard that makes someone want to cancel their weekend plans to stay home and watch the last two rounds of the U.S. Open.

It was all part of a dizzying day at the US Open where at times the leaderboard resembled a game of musical chairs with names moving up and down.

"It's been the best preparation going into a major", Day told reporters.

Paul Casey has a share of the lead heading into the third round.

Johnson was hitting it so well that he appeared to be safe even when he was on the cut line.

Once again golfers were taking full advantage of a softened Erin Hills layout left defenceless by overnight rain, attacking the pins with gusto. I'm going to let it happen. He missed the 15-footer.

"Struck it well, hit a bunch of greens, and that's what you've got to do to play well around here". Patrick Reed, Paul Casey, Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood are at 8 under.

A 94-year-old spectator has died at the U.S. Open. No other information was provided.

The problem is that Spieth has been taking too many Ls at majors since melting down at last year's Masters.

It sounds as if Erin Hills is becoming more challenging with each passing minute.

And a day after 44 players finished under par to set the record for most sub-par rounds in the first round, 46 players signed for a sub-par round.

"This is the United States Open, it's a major and it means a lot to me".

Harris English is 4 under after a second-round 69.

Second-ranked Rory McIlroy also looked sure to have the weekend free when the Northern Irishman added a 71 to his first-round 78 for a five-over total of 149.

"I saw some positives there on the back nine coming in and hopefully I can take them to the Travelers (tournament) next week".

"Showed up for the last six holes, anyway", he said. The Japanese star matched Chez Reavie for the best round of the day, three shots clear of the next best performance by Bill Haas.

Day never had a chance, following his career-worst 79 in a U.S. Open with a 75. This one he'd rather forget.

Casey then reignited his charge birding his eighth hole and ended the run with a "3" at his 12th. "So it's just nice to see it come along at the right time".

MONEY PUTT: Jason Kokrak made a 16-foot putt on his final hole, No. 9, for a birdie that got him to 1 over - good enough to make the cut. He tapped in for par. J.B. Holmes. And Rickie Fowler.

Fowler is two under with birdies on the second and seventh. "And I feel like once the cannon gets open, I'll start pouring them in".

OK, this is his first U.S. Open. Results are not what will make this a great week at Erin Hills for the 50-year-old Stricker.

Then, inexplicably, he lost his putting touch.

Casey chopped his way to an 8 on the par-5 14th and shot 38 on the back nine.

Thomas poured in the eagle to become the 29th player with a 63 in a major championship. He is 3 under for the tournament. He closed with a 67 at Augusta that got him into a tie for 11th at 1 under, but his game dropped off a bit from there in his next three events.

Brooks Koepka made three birdies over his last seven holes for a 68 and joined Thomas one shot out of the lead. But that wasn't the problem. He doesn't play until Friday afternoon.

England's Casey had an action-packed second round.

The top 60 and ties make the cut at the U.S. Open. He was 10 under, only two shots behind.
