Fowler, three others share lead after two rounds at US Open

Scheffler isn't the only amateur making waves at Erin Hills, with Cameron Champ two shots back of the lead at 5 under.

He made the eagle to get his name in the record book Saturday.

Harman might be the surprise leader after three rounds, but there was nothing ordinary about his game. "I think the more rounds I can play, I'm hopefully going to get rid of all that stuff and hopefully stripe it down to what you saw the last six holes".

Dustin Johnson of the United States walks across the 18th hole during the second round of the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills on June 16, 2017 in Hartford, Wisconsin.

Casey nearly watched his U.S. Open hopes sink with a triple-bogey eight on the par-five 14th hole, and a bogey on the next that dropped him to two under for the tournament.

Casey then reignited his charge birding his eighth hole and ended the run with a "3" at his 12th. Rickie Fowler, the first-round leader, is in a three-way tie at 6 under, followed by an eclectic mix of five golfers at 5 under.

Tommy Fleetwood had no problem picking out his best shot of the day. The Canadian shot a second round two-over 74 but is still in the mix heading into the weekend at two-under par.

"It's going to be a really cool day for someone tomorrow", Fowler said.

"I'm looking forward to it very much". I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes.

The cut has been made at +1 ahead of the final two days of action at Erin Hills, Wisconsin.

Thomas finished in style, and it had nothing to do with his hot pink trousers.

McIlroy, playing for the first time in a month to rest a nagging rib injury, finally got it going when it was too late.

"Oh gosh, Jimmy, be good", he said to caddie Jimmy Johnson when the ball was in the air, and it was close to flawless. After another week off, he will play the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship.

Bortolleto said the DACA announcement "should in no way make people think that the administration is softening their stance". The DAPA program, like the one for young immigrants, was created with a policy memo, not by legislation.

"The finish was awesome".

He might need one at this rate. The forecast calls for rain and stiffening winds over the weekend.

"That means I'm a part of history", he said.

Speaking about the changes he made previous year, Fleetwood added: "I went back to my old coach and had one of my best mates caddying and I think that can't be underestimated, having your friend with you, whether you're leading the US Open or playing a casual round at home".

"I m optimistic with where my game is", he said.

"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".

Some of those who came out to the U.S. Open said they wanted to experience the tournament and check out the lovely Erin Hills Gold Course. In the hay left of the 12th fairway, he gouged it out with a 9-iron and watched it roll to 10 feet.

He then bogeyed the 15th hole, hitting it short of the green in two and failing to get up and down. His errant driving, for one; two triple bogeys he encountered on Thursday, the first time that has happened as a pro; and failing to scramble well when he missed greens.

American Justin Thomas equalled the lowest score in major championship history in stunning fashion to surge into contention for the US Open at Erin Hills. "There's no secret that I'm very fiery and a competitor and I've let my emotions get the best of me for sure so I'm understanding that if I can control those I certainly have a better chance of playing well".

But the work is not done.

With Johnson, McIlroy and Day all missing from the weekend action, all eyes will be on a clustered leaderboard which is dominated by players who have never won a major.

Holmes expects the scoring to get more hard over the final rounds.
