Johnson in U.S. Open command after second round 67

Rory McIlroy

"You know, the course played very tough".

Odd never had to deal with a potentially career-ending injury in the way Woods has, but nonetheless battled for consistent excellence after falling short in his quest in 1990 to become the first player to win three straight U.S. Opens. "The pressure is at its highest, and it's just one of those tournaments that's very hard to play well and win". He kept the momentum with a par save at 17, but dropped a shot at 18 to cap a one-under par 69 that left him on even par 140 alongside Piercy.

Shinnecock can punish anyone in a NY minute.

Justin Rose bogeyed his last two holes of the day to fall to one over par.

Scott posted only three birdies over the course of the two days, with 12 bogeys and two double-bogeys, struggling at times to find the fairways and the greens. "He just laughed at me, he had no words to say. I felt even more stupid semi-chunking the next one, and I didn't do much better on the next one either". I felt my game was in good shape - I felt the long game was there; the short game was there I just....

Out in two over after following a birdie at the third with a bogey at the treacherous seventh and a double-bogey at the ninth, where he three-putted from 20 yards, McDowell was thrilled to come home in two-under thanks to birdies from nine feet at both the 10th and 16th. "I feel like I got a lot of confidence in it, and I feel like I can play this golf course well". When it comes to things that have happened in the past, you've got to err on the side of conservative.

Woods is staring down the barrel of a missed cut at Shinnecock Hills having signed for a two-over-par 72 during the second round to fall to 10 over. McIlroy has now missed the cut at the US Open for the third consecutive year. Jason Day opened with a 79 and missed the cut.

Another Englishman Tommy Fleetwood shot the low round of the week - a 66 - to also finish on one over with former Open champion Henrik Stenson and defending US Open champion Brooks Koepka.

Johnson is seeking his second victory in three years, following his 2016 victory at Oakmont in 2016, his only major title to date. "Then it kind of let up a little bit for us, and then we got to finish in some nice weather". Stenson played with him in the final round at Shanghai a year ago when Johnson lost a six-shot lead in the final round. Piercy's day was not without regrets, especially when he three-putted from 4 feet for bogey on the par-5 16th. Unfortunately, they've lost the golf course. "There's not many birdies".

"He's gone out of his way for me here this week", Scott said after he finished up. "It's meant to take advantage of the rules as best you can".

"We're not on the edge", said the two-time major champion. You don't know what the weather is going to do and how hard it's going to get.

Asked if he is fully prepared to challenge Johnson, the world's No. 1 player, at the top of the leaderboard, Fleetwood didn't seem ready to place a bet on it. "That could happen to DJ", Rose said. "I don't know that you can be too happy and too excited about 10-over par".
