Woods misses US Open cut as big names continue to struggle

Dustin Johnson lone player under par at U.S. Open

Johnson, No. 1 in the world rankings, shot 3 under that had him atop the leaderboard.

Spieth shot a 78, a big chunk of that coming courtesy of a triple-bogey he made on his second hole of the day. His shot of the day came on the 7th green, when he nailed a 45 foot putt for birdie.

His U.S. Open, after two days, was over. "But I'm playing well enough to shoot that number, given the conditions, and I just have to putt a little better". "I'm 10 over par". Arrived here, I'm like, 'Whoa, what's going on?' The wind, the flags were already, you know, fluttering dead straight. However, it was another rough day for Tiger Woods, playing in his first U.S. open since 2015.

The weekend will not include Tiger Woods, who shot 72 to miss the cut for the fifth time in his last eight majors.

Still, some holes at Shinnecock Hills are playing more hard than others. "I drove it pretty good for most of the day, just never took advantage of the opportunities".

On Thursday he hit the fairway on his first shot, went down a hill after flying the green on his second and watched his third shot hit the top of the hill before rolling back to him.

Since the crescent moon which marks the new lunar month was not sighted today, Friday will be the 30th and final day of Ramazan. Yesterday, the Eid Al-Fitr holidays were announced , however the exact dates for the private sector are yet to be confirmed.

Only four players of the 156-man field broke par - world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, fellow-American Scott Piercy and Russell Henley and Englishman Ian Poulter - but even they had hardly conquered the beast at one-under par 69.

A bogey finish by Hoffman and a bogey-bogey close by Rose pushed them back to even par and 1 over, respectively. It held the second U.S. Open in 1896, and then went 90 years until its next one.

It was the sigh of a man who has seen rounds like this before, seen hard U.S. Open setups and almost bested them, but always left disappointed. He recovered (somewhat) with just one more bogey and six pars before making the turn onto the front nine. "You have to be on".

ESPN.com's Bob Harig noted that the average score of 76.47 on Thursday was the highest at the U.S. Open for a first round in a quarter of a century. It's windy, it was raining early but he just striped the ball through the elements.' Johnson also underlined the scale of the task facing Woods if he is start winning majors again. Patrick Reed's win in the Masters earlier this year made him the ninth different player to win a title in the last nine majors.

"I didn't putt well today", he said. Forget worrying about losing a ball in the towering fescue that had surrendered its way into a flattened blanket; this was a day golfers were lucky not to lose their minds. His last victory - and last major - was 10 years ago at Torrey Pines.

Asked if he still could, he was confident in his reply. "The issue was I didn't hit it on the short stuff very much", Gregory said. The grass wrapped around the hosel of the club and sent his fourth shot off to the right across the fairway to lighter rough.
