4-Way Tie For 1st Place After 2 Rounds of US Open

The top two ranked players in the world, defending champion Dustin Johnson and 2011 US Open victor Rory McIlroy, also failed to make the cut.

A bogey on the par-four 12th was followed by a birdie on the 13th to leave him at 6-over through four holes.

"I know people get caught up with this even par thing", USGA executive director Mike Davis said this week. I think I hit 11 fairways other than the five I did (on Thursday).

"I hope the moment will come as soon as possible". But he also struggled around the greens, failing to get up and down once in six opportunities.

Harman, bidding to become the first left-hander to win a US Open, is a victor on the PGA Tour this year while Thomas is the world number 13, a three-time victor this season and a member of the exclusive "59" club after breaking 60 at the Sony Open this year.

Eight of the top 12 in the world will not be around for the weekend at this most unusual U.S. Open, where the top 60 and ties advanced to the final two rounds.

"You can not play this golf course if you're not in position off the tee and I wasn't in position", McIlroy said. "But, I'm a pretty happy man".

"It's just the way the game of golf is", Snedeker said. I'm looking forward to it very much.

Corey Conners, of Listowel, Ont., shot his second straight 76 to finish at 8-over par and miss the cut.

Former Masters champion Danny Willett has withdrawn from the Open with a back injury. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81. "Even though it's very disappointing to not be here on the weekend, I think these last two rounds will serve me well going into the summer".

Dustin Johnson vowed to work hard on his putting and expressed his disappointment that his defence of the US Open title ended with a missed cut.

Both players liked the course but put their performance down to a lack of execution.

And the biggest test of all could be the USGA proving that it's not trying to protect par. "It's a big golf course with lots of rough, but it lets you play". He missed almost two months at the start of the year when he was diagnosed with a slight rib fracture, and then the latest break after The Players Championship. I'll probably just play for sure to get ready for the British.

McIlroy has a hectic schedule again. McIlroy is headed for the Travelers Championship next week in CT, and he has three straight tournaments starting with the Irish Open through the British Open.

That's eight of the next 10 weeks after just seven starts in 2017.

"It's been the best preparation going into a major, I felt like, in my career, which is playing in majors and knowing what I needed to do to prep for a tournament such as this", Day said. But he missed his first cut at a major since the 2012 PGA Championship.

"It was a surprise as I really like this golf course".

After an opening round 74, world number four Hideki Matsuyama looked ready to join the parade of top ranked players to the exit but the Japanese hit back with the joint best round of the day of seven-under 65 to shoot up the leaderboard and into contention at five-under.

The USGA wants to get away from references of the U.S. Open being the toughest test in golf, preferring instead the "ultimate test".

Jason Day had two triple-bogeys and posted a 79, his worst score ever at a US Open.

Greg Norman and Vijay Singh are the only golfers to record two rounds of 63 in the majors.
