“Collin Morikawa shares US Open lead”
A weekend standoff of golf’s top stars was set Friday at the US Open as double cross significant champ Collin Morikawa held onto a portion of the lead while Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy were one stroke hapless. Seventh-positioned Morikawa discharged a four-under standard 66 and American Joel Dahmen, who shot 68, went along with him on five-under 135 after 36 openings at The Country Club.
Second-positioned reigning champ Rahm, third-positioned McIlroy, and Americans Hayden Buckley, Aaron Wise, and Beau Hossler shared third on 136. “Nobody has taken it profound up to this point and take off,” Morikawa said. “However, you know what, at the present time my game feels better.
After his solitary intruder at the fourth, Morikawa dropped his second shot at the standard 4 eighth four feet from the cup yet missed his hawk putt and agreed to birdie.”I realized the beat was somewhat off,” Morikawa said. “It incidentally turned out to be a terrible stroke. So I’m not excessively stressed truly.”
McIlroy, who persevered through a twofold intruder calamity at the third opening, sank a 15-foot birdie putt at the twelfth, drove the green in two to set up a tap-in birdie at the standard 5 fourteenth, and sank a 12-foot birdie putt at 17.
“I’m in a decent spot,” McIlroy said. “I’m truly content with where my game is at and I believe that is really significant.”
McIlroy, pursuing his most memorable significant title beginning around 2014, falls off a triumph in last week’s PGA Canadian Open. Not beginning around 1934 has a player won the prior week and afterward caught the US Open.
