McIlroy won the US Open with a record 16-under-par total in 2011 and claimed his second major title in the US PGA the following year.
"I've played a lot of golf with him and have seen him at his best". And I can hit those shots. I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did. He finally dropped a shot with a strong chip and a missed par putt on No. 4, and then got it trouble in the thick stuff on the next hole.
Fellow Australians Wade Ormsby (six-over after a second 75) and Nick Flanagan (10-over after a 79) also went home early, joining Johnson (four-over after a 73) and four-time major victor McIlroy (five-over after a 71).
According to numbers compiled by CBSSports.com, Day is one of only 4 players who made the cut in the tournament from 2012 to 2016. Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood, playing together, were tied for fourth at 6 under.
World number two McIlroy meanwhile - who earlier in the week had advised players unable to hit the fairways to "pack their bags" - was left at five-over-par after a second round 71.
Starting from the 10th tee, Fowler showed why he was among the pre-tournament favorites, returning a polished bogey-free effort that matched the lowest first round score in relation to par at a U.S. Open.
"When you're trying to aim at a target usually at a normal golf course, with normal width fairways, there's some pressure in hitting the fairway". We were anxious about putting driver into that bunker. I feel like the golf game is there.
"You're going to have to be aggressive", Snedeker said, "and you have to make a ton of birdies". "Open where I've had that much enjoyment". "I think I have a little bit of an advantage", he added.
Not even the sight of a burning blimp crashing to the ground in an open field just a half-mile (800 meters) from the course could distract the world number nine, who failed to make the cut at his previous two U.S. Opens but finished runner-up in 2014.
Major champions Bubba Watson, Jimmy Walker, Charl Schwartzel and Jason Dufner also missed. He opened Thursday with a 9-over 81.
Day never had a chance, following his career-worst 79 in a U.S. Open with a 75.
Hideki Matsuyama had a solid showing at the Masters in April. "And I've been very light on competitive rounds this year, and it's just a matter of getting into a good round of golf now". He punched the third back into the fairway but needed two more to get on the green and two to get down for his second seven.
McIlroy's performance might not be that surprising given that he's played only six PGA Tour events this year and missed most of the last month with a rib injury. When I get down he kind of tells me a joke or something dumb. Rain that was supposed to fall on Thursday came overnight instead, and the batch forecasted for Friday is now expected for Saturday.
McIlroy has a hectic schedule again.
The U.S. Open was only his sixth start this year.
That's eight of the next 10 weeks after just seven starts in 2017.
"You won't get a better day for scoring", Johnson said wistfully during the long walk to sign his card.
"It's pretty frustrating", said Day, still smiling after missing the cut at the American championship.
"I love the way the greens are rolling, and there was a ton of footage putts, made a bunch of 20-footers", Snedeker said. "I enjoyed the walk, the golf course is lovely but I just didn't execute". Casey eagled the Par-5, 608-yard first hole and tallied six birdies.
The appearance before the Senate intelligence committee gave Sessions a chance to defend himself, but offered little new insight. Sessions said during his hearing he is not sure if he would be able to answer the questions in a closed session.
Other lawmakers were stunned in the aftermath of the event, which raised questions about the security of members of Congress. For one minute, Congress stopped being Congress and was just a group of people sharing emotions after a very tough week.
McIlroy's playing partner and former world No 1 Jason Day finished nine over following a 75. "The course was just drier", he said. It doesn't need to be too much of a change for this golf course to play pretty hard . "So to be right behind him, I'm ecstatic".
And sometimes words fail us because no words can do justice to how we feel, or what we have seen or what has happened. Security cordons were in place around the base of the tower and the ground was littered with charred debris.
After getting outscored 37-33 in the first quarter , Golden State responded by taking an 11-point lead into the break. And I did that from day one, and I just tried to stay with that". "We were really good tonight".
Hodgkinson has been in the area since March, living out of his van, said Washington FBI Special Agent In Charge Tim Slater. The security details have since greatly expanded much farther than that after the fatal shooting of two Capitol officers.
Trump's remarks were a surprising critique of a Republican-written House measure whose passage he lobbied for and praised. Trump said whatever Republican health reform passes, it will be a "phenomenal bill" that's "generous, kind, with heart".
McIlroy is back to even-par for the round after bogeying the first three holes on the front nine. "I just did a good job ". Rickie Fowler had a 7-under 65, and was one of 44 players to break par - a record for the first round of a U.S.
President Donald Trump raised the stakes on those changes when he told senators this week that the House version was " mean ". Their plan is to hold no hearings before the vote and take no input on the bill from experts, advocates or the public.
The Pro 10.5 has a bigger battery than the Pro 9.7, but it also has to deal with a brighter screen that refreshes twice as fast. They were already available in jailbreak apps - the kind of apps that Apple doesn't allow in the App Store - or on Android.

Additionally, if the Lakers were set on drafting Josh Jackson already, they would not schedule a second workout with Ball. That number seems a bit jarring, but if you're aware of DSJ's handiwork, then I suppose it's not too surprising.
