"It was a tough day out there, " Fowler said.

Kaymer opened his week with two rounds of 65-65 to reach 10-under and build a six-shot lead going into the weekend.

Stricker, a native son who lives in nearby Madison, was vociferously cheered at every tee box and green all week.

Brian Harman, the little left-hander, was expected to fade. He spoke about how her diagnosis made him a stronger player, saying, "I am pretty self-motivated and I had a lot of growing up to do". Talking about it, Koepka said, "I don't quit". It was a relief that I wanted to be here so bad. "On some of these par fives I don't even need to hit a driver to get there". My kids were here. It has turned out to be one of the best - and fairest - layouts chosen by the USGA in recent years., After the shambles that was Chambers Bay, this has been a blessed relief. But I'm in the British. "That's what I kept doing", he told a news conference. "So I'm excited about playing in all four of them this year". Even the wind, which finally blew on Sunday, couldn't put a complete halt to an assault on par never before seen in a U.S. Open.

"So you had to play different shots and the wind is really blustery out there". "I struck the ball the same way I have been [all week]". His round of 66 was over almost 90 minutes before Koepka strolled to the 18th green, with the tournament all but wrapped up. "I thought it was very challenging". But he just said a few things, about just staying patient.

Told that he had equalled the lowest US Open first round score, Fowler replied: "It's cool to be part of some sort of history in golf, but I'd rather be remembered for something that's done on Sunday".

Scottie Scheffler was the low amateur, shooting a 73 to finish at 1 under.

The Japanese rattled off three quick birdies in his opening five holes, which included an incredible 41-foot putt on the second to launch his charge. "I played six, probably seven weeks in a row. not being home". And I did that.

"Brooks is a good friend of ours, and happy for him". My timing was just a little bit off. The mixture in design makes Erin Hills such a joy to watch and to play.

"I think the Ryder Cup was kind of the first real taste of true pressure I think I've ever felt", he added. There are so many great ones to choose from. "It has come early in my career, earlier than I expected. I've a week off and then I'm going to France and see what I can do there". But I think what was underestimated was how well he knew me, how well he knew my game. Does that mean anything?

"Obviously, that's just one shot, but that was a pretty big turn", Thomas said of the bogey on No. 4.

"He was brilliant, the shots he hit down the stretch, you can't describe how hard some of them are. Some places it's just too thick and too penal". Last year, it bungled the supposed rules infraction by Dustin Johnson and the year before, it lost the greens at Chambers Bay.

"Chambers was tough with the greens, and then a year ago had a tough Sunday, " he said. "There was no unfairness whatsoever".
