A starry cast list who will have an unwanted weekend off was headed by Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.

In order to get the players out in 25 miles per hour winds, the USGA were forced to leave the greens slow. With the world number one four shots clear and odds-on to win this major for a second time, the weekend could well turn into a tiresome procession.

Johnson, who holds a four-shot lead over Scott Piercy and Charley Hoffman, has control of this golf tournament. He made bogey, but he took double bogey or worse out of the equation.

I can't believe what I just saw Phil Mickelson do at the U.S. Open.

UPDATE: FRIDAY, 2:45 p.m. 5, 8 and 9 on the front and followed that up with bogeys on Nos.

Gregory, a second-year pro from England, had two triple-bogeys, three double bogeys, 10 bogeys and three pars.

The wet turf seemed to help scores at times. "Our wave of tee times was significantly easier, and it shows how impressive Dustin Johnson is playing because he played in much more hard conditions and he's beating everybody by a lot", Mickelson said after his round, referring to the sunnier conditions over in the afternoon.

"We got lucky with the conditions, getting much easier". "He's a class act; there's nobody nicer out there". "But I'm all of a sudden in a position where I can have a good round tomorrow and be up there for Sunday, hopefully". "Lenny!" and clapping for him from the clubhouse steps.

No player has ever won the week prior to the U.S. Open, then made it back-to-back wins at the major championship.

"But with the conditions like this, this is not too tough", Henley said of approaching the greens.

"I'm not very happy the way I played and the way I putted", Woods said after his round. And we had to hang in there today, and we only hung in there for nine.

It was a tough round for Day and many other stars at the US Open.

The rounds of the day went to Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka, whose incredible rounds of four-under 66 have taken them right into contention, with Dustin Johnson's 67 keeping him at the top.
