Fowler is at No. 9 in the world ranking. Some of the world's top-ranked players and pre-tournament favourites look poised to miss the cut. After three birdies on the back, he still finished +2 on the back after two bogeys and a triple.

He three-putted on No. 13. Day's opening round included a triple-bogey on the Par-4, 451-yard fourth hole. He rebounded nicely with only one bogey and five birdies after his snowman on No. 14.

"I'm playing the weekend", Fowler said.

And they had even more company.

World number three Day, needing a miracle to get back into contention after his opening 79 carded a three-over-par 75, leaving him 10 over and way outside the projected cutline. The cut was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah. Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Henrick Stenson, Bubba Watson and rising star Jon Rahm were also left out of the weekend.

The tournament, one of golf's four majors, began Thursday morning.

The 94-year-old fan appeared to die of natural causes, a Washington County Sheriff told the USGA.

McIlroy joked earlier in the week that anyone who couldn't hit such wide fairways "might as well pack your bags and go home".

Given his good form and impressive major track record, expect to see Casey back near (or at) the top of the Sunday leaderboard. In fact, eight of the top 12 golfers in the world missed the cut, a first in OWGR history dating back to 1986, according to Bob Harig. The fairways are quite forgiving, but as soon as you get a little bit off line and get out of position, that's when the course is going to bite you.

He never would have guessed it. "(On Thursday), I just hit some shots close and made some putts. "And just unfortunately, this didn't pan out". But any bad taste in his mouth shouldn't last long because it's been an impressive week for the 29-year-old Valspar Championship victor from Abbotsford, B.C. In Thursday's first round, he tied a U.S. Open record by making six consecutive birdies en route to a four-under 68 and a share of seventh place. He kept it in the short grass, the secret to Erin Hills that wouldn't appear to be that hard with some of the widest fairways for this major.

In the first round, McIlroy only hit five fairways en route to a 78.

Jordan Spieth, the 2015 US Open victor snuck just inside the cut-line at even-par with a 71. And even that was frustrating. Pat Perez swung and missed completely in the tall grass behind the 15th green.

"Show up for the last six holes, anyway", McIlroy said.

"It feels good", said the 39-year-old, who has recorded three consecutive top-six finishes in the Masters, but whose sole top-10 finish in 13 US Open appearances came at Oakmont a decade ago. That still didn't appear to be almost enough. 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.

No one has accomplished such a feat since Bobby Jones swept the USA and British Opens and Amateurs, the four biggest events of his day, in 1930. I got out of position, but it's the attitude, it's the grit that matters at the end of the week.
