Johnson, Day and McIlroy miss cut at US Open

"I got in a hazard on one. If you hit it off the tee you can score".

It is going to be a surprisingly quiet weekend for defending champion and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, as well as Nos.

What would winning the U.S. Open do for him? Johnson came in with 73, but that was not almost enough, as he finished at 4-over 148 when 145 or better was needed to advance.

Johnson, who had struggled to a three-over-par 75 in the first round, carded three birdies and four bogeys in a one-over-par 73. But at 5-over 149, he'll have the weekend off, too.

But while Casey was relieved after his gutsy fightback, it was back t the drawing board for McIlroy and Day after their disappointing exits.

Camille Cosby bashes prosecutors following husband's mistrial
The jury deliberated for 52 hours before the judge declared a mistrial and afterwards prosecutors said they would seek a re-trial. In Cosby's case, that could have involved the more than 60 other women who have accused him of assaults dating to the 1960s.

"I felt the most calm I have in a major in a long time this week", said Day, who arrived last Friday. The Englishman shot a one-under 71 but had to fight back from two bogeys and a triple bogey in his first six holes.

"Not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an 8 on the card, but I'm a pretty happy man", Casey said. Matsuyama, a 25-year-old, four-time PGA Tour victor from Japan, had a putt for birdie on the par-5 18th hole, which would have been only the second 8-under round in U.S. Open history, matching Johnny Miller's 63 at par-71 Oakmont in 1973.

"Just to see their games and how they play, I've grown up watching them".

Joining Johnson, McIlroy, Day and Willett in going home early are a host of fellow big names.

Brian Harman stood on the podium with hands on hips, giving answers in the kind of matter-of-fact voice expected from someone used to the spotlight of a major championship. That led to a double bogey, which hurt him as badly as making only one birdie. "I feel like that's going to help me to get back into contention and hopefully try to win some of these things". "And unfortunately, this didn't pan out". That's the lowest differential after 36 holes in the U.S. Open, mainly because until 2012, everyone within 10 shots of the lead made the cut at the U.S. Open. A recurring rib injury limited his practice time and kept him from starts at the BMW Championship and Memorial. "Yesterday (Thursday), I just hit some shots close and made some putts". He stumbled to a 6-over 42 over his final nine on Day 1. He smoothed that out on Friday, and had better results.

Iran warns missile attack on IS in Syria can be repeated
Both are on the opposite sides of violent conflicts in Syria, Yemen and most recently Iran has come to the support of Qatar. The Syrian army said the warplane was on a mission against Islamic State militants when it was shot down.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course, which is what I did on 14", Casey said. "And I showed what I can do". He missed a six-foot putt on his last hole, which would have given him sole possession of the lead. Johnson and Matt Kuchar will be the second of 34 pairings to hit the course. But at least I know that it's in there. "And I just unfortunately didn't execute". I need to practice a little bit and I need to work on my putting mostly.

"I've been feeding off the fans all week", Stricker said. "It sets up really well for me, especially if I'm driving it like I did today". Everything was in good shape. Not sure if you've heard this before, but it's really hard to win a major. He'll play Travelers, then head overseas to play the Irish Open, Scottish Open and British Open. Lots of talent, just looking for that one break-out moment.

Casey, who began the day one shot back of Fowler, found trouble when he flew his approach out of rough over the green at the par-five 14th, his fifth, into the deep fescue and needed five more strokes to get in the cup.

Only eight shots separate the leaders from the players who made the cut on the number. This week, he didn't have it. Unlikely as it seems, that was the last major he played on the weekend. "Fortunately, I was able to keep it at 7".
