W2W4: Best bets for second half of US Open

Watch the * a href="https://www.fubo.tv/lp/sports/?bgvideo=USOpen.mp4&title=Watch%20The%20U.S.%20Open&subinfo=Live%20June%2015-18%20on%20FS1%20and%20FOX*&priceline=*Regional%20restrictions%20apply.&priceline=Start%207-Day%20Free%20Trial%20Now?irad=377808&irmp=390910%0D%0A" target="_blank" *2017 U.S. Open live on fuboTV. The problem is the most desired landing area is only about 22 yards wide and is all but surrounded by rough in which you could lose a beach ball, let alone a golf ball. In particular, some of the favorites who insisted on wanting a tough setup this week. On the day, No. 5 yielded 25 birdies, 111 pars and 20 bogeys.

And he's not alone.

"Show up for the last six holes, anyway", McIlroy said.

"I like this golf course".

Somebody might go low early, but not as many.

"If the sun stays like it is and the wind keeps baking this golf course out, it's pretty treacherous on the weekend, which is just what I would like, and I think what the rest of the players want to see".

Despite the scorecard battle, Leishman says it's the most comfortable he's been at a major. "Just didn't execute, unfortunately". The cut was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah.

Instead, the bombers just plain bombed.

"Not your typical U.S. Open setup, but I'm a big fan", McIlroy said. "I'm enjoying it right now". "The walk was great". The 12-time PGA Tour victor hasn't had a Top Ten finish since March.

Despite missing his birdie putt, the crowd again gave Stricker a rousing round of applause as would have to anxiously await his fate toward the cut line.

"If you look at the golf course and talk to me, Jason or Rory, this course sets up flawless for us", world No.1 Johnson said.

Plenty of other high-profile players were unable to make the weekend.

Hideki Matsuyama had a solid showing at the Masters in April.

Champ, a qualifier from Texas A&M, is leading the 156-player field in average driving distance over the first two rounds at 339 yards, and is tied for eighth on the leaderboard, two shots off the pace at five-under-par after yesterday's three-under 69.

In all, 32 players are within five shots of the lead.

Paul Casey, Brian Harman, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood held the lead at the halfway stage of the U.S. Open, but the completion of the second round spelled the end of the road for several big names.

Casey said he would not change his approach as he pursues his first major. "You're going to make some bogeys in there, so it's really hard to get away from anybody". 'Oh it's so windy.

"It will be just fine", said Fowler, who plays in the third-to-last group on Saturday.

When I asked Day earlier in the week about that mindset, he confidently agreed.

"Usually, when you hear people complain, it's one less guy you have to worry about at the start of the week".

Paul Casey rode a rollercoaster to the second-round clubhouse lead at the U.S. Open on Friday, surviving a hair-raising trip that included a gut-wrenching triple-bogey and a thrilling run of five straight birdies.

It wasn't attitude or mindset that eliminated players, it was a simple matter of execution on a course so ideally positioned to be taken down - especially relative to what conditions could have been.

Day, needing a miracle to get back into contention after his opening 79 carded a three-over-par 75, leaving him 10 over.
