Justin Thomas joins leader logjam at US Open

It didn't get any better when he finally made the green. This marks the first 36-hole lead/co-lead for Harman on the PGA Tour.

McIlroy birdied four of his last six holes at Erin Hills to improve seven shots on his opening 78, but still missed the cut by four shots.

Cameron Champ watches his shot on the eighth hole during the second round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at Erin Hills. "We get to go home today because Daddy played poorly".

What would winning the U.S. Open do for him? Jordan Spieth was even par through 12 holes and going nowhere.

Casey sandwiched a pair of bogeys around his triple during a four-hole stretch of the back nine.

World No.9 Rickie Fowler (68) is solo fifth, with Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim, from South Korea, a shot back in sixth after also carding a 68.

He floated a wedge shot to three feet to escape with his only bogey of the round. So there he stood at two under and seemingly out of the picture.

"It doesn't affect the game plan one bit, and it doesn't really affect the mindset", he said. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

"I'm going to enjoy my time tonight with my little girl and my wife". "I got in a hazard on one".

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

Schauffele double bogeyed the par-3 13th hole.

ERIN, Wis. (AP) - Tommy Fleetwood had no problem picking out his best shot of the day.

Thomas (11-under 205) is one stroke behind leader Brian Harman, while Fowler is just two back at 10 under as he searches for his first career major.

"I have no expectations", he said.

"I don't know", Thomas said when asked what he'd say to Miller, "but I'll be pretty happy". But just for me, I felt like I've been playing pretty well all week, and didn't have quite the numbers to show for it. "Obviously I have no idea what [Sunday] holds, but I'm more motivated by the way I'm striking the ball". "But it isn't a U.S. Open course that I'm familiar with the way it was set up". Thomas rolled in an 18-footer that went right to left from the edge of the green.

He had a chance to extend his lead to two but missed an 11-footer for birdie on 18.

Similar scoring had initially appeared a possibility at Erin Hills, which became the longest course in major championship history at 7,845 yards in the first round and featured such thick fescue grass that patches had to be chopped down on four holes on Tuesday. "We're definitely in good position for tomorrow". I just struggled on the greens.

But the work is not done.

Fleetwood's second shot on the par-five 18th finished just 47 yards from the pin. A lot of them had to come from far back going into the weekend, and it was hard to put together two good rounds.

MONEY PUTT: Jason Kokrak made a 16-foot putt on his final hole, No. 9, for a birdie that got him to 1 over - good enough to make the cut. He is a third-generation pro, with his grandfather Paul having played in the U.S. Open and his father, Mike, the head pro at Harmony Landing Country Club in Goshen, site of Justin's shrine. "So we're breaking down all kinds of barriers".
