Dustin Johnson shares US Open lead with Justin Rose one back

US Open: Tiger Woods Trolled By Wendy's After Triple Bogey

US Open: Tiger Woods Trolled By Wendy's After Triple Bogey

Shinnecock Hills Golf Club is no longer the only challenge at this U.S. Open.

Putting for a bogey, Mickelson trotted after his ball when it got past the hole, then stroked it back toward the hole in the other direction as it was rolling. "Every day out here is going to be hard".

He had another bogey on No. 7, and the dagger to his chances of making the cut proved to be a double-bogey on the par-four ninth.

The marquee group of Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy had their problems.

Gary Woodland posted an under-par score in the second round with a 69, but that only brought him to 8 over for the tournament.

"I didn't feel like I played badly at all", said Johnson, who rated his 77 as the best seven-over round of his career.

Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy also missed the cut.

"Even after yesterday I felt like I could come in today and shoot in the 60s and make it to the weekend".

"Absolutely", Woods said. "Have you seen the way I've been swinging?"

Most everyone else felt beat up on a course where wind that gusted to 25 miles per hour made the fairways shrink and the rough look even taller. He found the next shot on his own because he advanced it only 6 feet.

Purists were understandably outraged by Mickelson's actions, though he defended what he did by citing the golf adage that the rules should be used to a player's advantage.

Poulter got within one of Johnson but he triple-bogeyed his penultimate hole - the eighth - and dropped a shot at his last, with Rose also in the group on one over after finishing with back-to-back bogeys.

A spectator said "guaranteed this one isn't short" as Woods hit shot No. 5.

The 'trend' that is troubling the US
Suicide rates varied from 6.9 per 100,000 residents a year in the District of Columbia to 29.2 per 100,000 in Montana. Of those with no diagnosed mental health conditions, men are more likely to commit suicide and do so with firearms.

"Unfortunately, I just haven't done that". "So didn't do very well there".

Sunday should not be a similar bloodbath, given that following the third round USGA CEO Mike Davis admitted him and his people had "screwed up" the setup.

"But it's job done really for the first two days".

Woods closed with back-to-back birdies to salvage a 72 and was 10 over for 36 holes. "It's a different kind of fun", Rose said.

"I'm right there", Piercy said. "When you get a bit cut up and bruised, it can change pretty quick".

He capped off the day at his 16th hole, the par-three seventh, where he curled in a 45-foot birdie putt that trundled downhill before trickling in as fellow competitor Woods looked on with admiration and perhaps a tinge of envy. He also got a break on the fifth hole. Finau finished at this year's Masters and the 2015 PGA Championship. "I just have not made any putts, and then, importantly, I haven't made those key ones to keep the momentum going, or if I have any positive momentum, I miss a putt and derail it". He chipped once and it rolled back down the hill. "I want to make things as easy as possible, even though they don't get any easier".

"But I'm playing well enough to shoot that (low) number, given the conditions", Mickelson said, "and I just have to putt a little better".

I prefer a tougher test.

"I didn't feel like going back and forth", he said.

But missing the cut at the U.S. Open and struggling on the greens clearly had him agitated on Friday, regardless of the perspective that has accompanied his comeback in 2018.

That already appears to be the case.

The last of Woods' 14 major triumphs came at the U.S. Open 10 years ago, but he was nowhere near contention as he struggled in hard conditions at Shinnecock Hills.

Stenson shot 70 to remain in contention.
