Dustin Johnson Pulls Away heading into the Weekend at Shinnecock

Phil Mickelson hits out of a bunker during a practice round for the U.S. Open Golf Championship Wednesday US Open: Tiger Woods Trolled By Wendy's After Triple Bogey

He made bogey on his last hole for a 72.

He still is 10 shots behind leader Dustin Johnson. "I think they misjudged the strength of the wind". Even Tiger Woods was impressed with Johnson's play at Shinnecock given the hard conditions.

Andrew "Beef" Johnston, who was paired with Mickelson and had a front-row seat for the carnival show on 13, unwittingly captured the entire day best when he described Mickelson's snafu.

"Unfortunately, it's just what I've done the last few events", he said.

Lowry, on the other hand, went in the opposite direction as his putter remained ice-cold, adding a 79 to his opening 75 to finish hopelessly outside the cut line on 14-over. "So, they're meant to be testers", said Woods.

The 2018 British Open will take place July 19-22, and it represents McIlroy's next opportunity to win his fifth major. There is just one player under par so far this week, and that's Dustin Johnson.

"I just didn't feel like going back and forth and hitting the same shot over", Mickelson said. I feel for the membership, because I know many of them.

The US Open cut sliced off some huge names.

"Today I hit 17 out of 18 greens".

A resurgent Ian Poulter claimed a share of the clubhouse lead as windy conditions sent scores soaring on the first day of the US Open, with Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods just two of the high-profile victims. Rose wound up with a 73 and was one shot behind at 214. Putts were rolling some 50 feet by the hole and over the green. I mean, I haven't played in wind like that for quite a long time. However, he is 66 in scrambling. "So you're not going to get a whole lot better at 38 or 39".

Robert De Niro drops F-bomb against Trump at the Tony Awards
Victory in the category of best featured actor in a musical went to Ari'el Stachel of " The Band's Visit ". So, I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died to protect that spirit.

Through two days in changing conditions, including some unexpected rain Friday morning that proved to be more than an annoyance over seven holes in mid-round, Johnson stayed patient, calm and unflappable.

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 felt stupid knifing the first one", he said. Poulter attributed his recent success on the course to a more "relaxed" and "happy" attitude on and off the course and trying to "simplify" everything. Any shot going over the green left a fiendish chip back up the slope and contributed to 49 bogeys, 29 double bogeys and eight triple bogeys or worse.

"There was a couple of holes yesterday and a couple today that I wish I could get back but that's the way it is".

Stenson capped his four-over 74 with a bogey at 18 and was alone in sixth on 215. But he had an excuse for his poor play, even if it was a suspect one. They are tied along with a few other major champions including Justing Rose and Henrick Stenson, all of whom can make a push towards DJ.

Rickie Fowler was also another one charging late on Friday afternoon.

"While it may not be the belief of everyone, yet, that sentiment is starting to spread as pros struggle mightily on these greens, and no one on the leaderboard is under par for the tournament", Michael Shamburger wrote.

If McIlroy had signed off the round with a 76, he would've only been seven shots off the pace and would've still have had a chance of winning with three holes to go.

DJ heads into moving day with a four-shot advantage over Scott Piercy (Even) and Charley Hoffman (Even) and looks to keep putting up red numbers as the weekend goes on.
