As someone who lived many years in the Windy City, this all-beef frank smothered in onions, relish, peppers and salt is the flawless meal - no matter which one of the three daily choices you select. He birdied five straight holes, starting with the 17th after teeing off on the 10th, but that run only served to negate a triple bogey on 14 as well as bogies on 12 and 15 to card a one-under 71. "But I'm a pretty happy man".

Paul Casey was alone in third at 7 under after a 71 in the second round.

Casey laid up in the rough on the par-5 14th hole.

"I'm a Rickie Fowler fan and the round of golf he composed this morning was attractive", said Casey, who opened his round with an eagle and a birdie. Even just trying to take my medicine is very, very hard. "It was a good eight in the end".

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said.

"I played well, I just really struggled on the greens. again", Scott told AAP. "There were a couple of dicey pin placements out there that you had to be careful about, but it was still scoreable".

Hideki Matsuyama and Chez Reavie both shot the rounds of the day, posting seven-under 65s to move to five and four under respectively. I birdied four of the last six.

Rickie Fowler produced a record-equaling low-scoring round to take a one-shot lead at the US Open on Thursday (Friday in Manila) as the big-hitters failed to fire. I think it's going to produce a really good victor at the end of the week. I missed one fairway today, which is the best driving round that I've had maybe in my life.

Artemis Racing reaches America's Cup challenger finals
Artemis will now meet Emirates Team New Zealand in the Challenger Play-off Finals, also a best-of-nine series, starting today. Both teams have had to overcome problems in their quest to become the challenger to America's Cup holder Oracle Team USA.

Others found the going tougher, however, with defending champion Dustin Johnson finishing the day three over, Rory McIlroy six over and world number three Jason Day posting a seven-over 79, including two triple bogeys. Johnson (+4) can't be too upset to be travelling home to California to see his newborn baby.

Most weird about this day was that as many amateurs broke par as top 10 players in the world - two apiece.

While McIlroy brushed aside concerns about the long fescue in the days before the Open, Kevin Na caused a bit of a stir when he posted a video to his Instagram account complaining about the long stuff at Erin Hills.

This year's U.S. Open, though, is taking that to another level.

It was the second consecutive US event the Briton has withdrawn from having pulled out of last month's Players Championship in the second round.

With diabolically twisting fairways, rough so high a small child could get lost in the grass and pin placements meant to destroy the hopes of even the world's best players, the Open courses have earned a reputation as one of the majors that, as Jack Nicklaus (who captured six trophies) once famously noted, a tournament that "Some players just weren't meant to win". "I felt the most calm I have in a major in a long time this week", said Day, who arrived last Friday. Fowler's streak ended at 28 holes, however, when he went just long on the 11th hole and had to chip sideways to have any chance of a reasonable par putt.

Tied with Fowler at 6-under par are Jamie Lovemark and J.B. Holmes. Despite the bumpy finish, he's a confident man heading into the weekend.
