Coli Bacteria Found in Drinking Water at US Open

Matsuyama tied a second-round U.S. Open record in relation to par with his seven-under score, and his bogey-free 65 could have been even better.

Both players liked the course but put their performance down to a lack of execution.

Following a mini-meltdown on his front nine, where he dropped five shots in four holes, including an 8 on the par-five 14th, the Englishman bounced back with five birdies in a row.

Casey chopped his way to a triple bogey, only to respond with five straight birdies that carried him to a 1-under 71 and make him the first to post at 7-under 137.

Spieth struggled to find any level of consistency Friday, as he finished the round with three birdies, two bogeys and 13 pars.

Paul Casey is one of the joint leaders after an up and down round of one under par, he took an eight on the par-5 14, but bounced back brilliantly with 5 birdies in his last 11 holes to save his round.

He now is a combined 43 over par in 18 U.S. Open rounds since winning the tournament at Congressional in 2011.

World number one and defending champion Dustin Johnson is among the late starters and will have to improve on Thursday's three-over effort if he hopes to take his title defence into the weekend.

The way this third round is going, odds are against him becoming the first player since Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines in 2008 to win a U.S. Open in his home state. In fact, the cut-line fell on plus-one - equalling the lowest ever cut in a US Open, at Medinah in 1990 - and anyone who has made it into the final two rounds will still believe anything is possible. He made the turn at 6-under 30, just one off the U.S. Open record of 29 for nine holes. Of the top 10 players in the world, only Fowler (No. 9) and Sergio Garcia (No. 7), who shot a 70, broke par.

Nebraska preliminary May jobless rate drops to 2.9 percent
The number of people employed in Norfolk fell by nearly an exact number (62) as the area's labor force did (60). The May unemployment numbers showed an increase of a tenth of a percentage point, increasing the rate to 5.0%.

"I didn't think it was the putter, it was the guy on the end of it", he said.

"Not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card", Casey said.

Tonight marked the first time since the world rankings were created in 1986 that the top three ranked golfers on the planet missed the cut at a US Open though.

The 23-year-old put himself in a hard position Thursday by shooting a one-over 73 due largely to uncharacteristic struggles on the green.

In addition to Johnson, McIlroy and Day, others in the world's top 12 who will be watching the weekend action are Henrik Stenson, Alex Noren, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose and Adam Scott. But I couldn't have shot any higher.

Scheffler is three shots back of the lead on a jam-packed leaderboard. "Even though it's very disappointing to not be here on the weekend, I think these last two rounds will serve me well going into the summer". "I got out of position but it's the attitude, it's the grit that matters at the end of the week".

With Johnson, McIlroy and Day misfiring, it was left to a clutch of unheralded players to dominate the upper reaches of the leaderboard.

South African Louis Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open champion, roared into contention going six-under through 16 holes to sit one shot back alongside American Patrick Reed who was also putting together an impressive scorecard going five-under with four to play.
