Spieth ties for 1st-round lead

David Duval, the 2002 British Open champion, believes Spieth is overdue some time off to recharge.

After four-foot birdie putts at 14 and 15, Johnson holed a 15-footer at the par-three 16th but took a three-putt bogey at 17 then closed with a tap-in par at 18 after his 109-yard third shot stopped inches from the cup.

"I just ran out of gas", said Koepka, whose efforts to get some rest back in Florida on Monday weren't helped by an early morning visit from pal Dustin Johnson. "But it was actually a pretty tough shot there, nearly a little downslope and I had to hit close to the ball, which you just have to commit to it. I probably could have gone 4-5 feet by, but I couldn't hit it any better than I did, and I was obviously fortunate for it to hit the pin and go in".

Early leader Johnson was critical of last week's third round set-up at the US Open. He began to heat up on the back nine with three birdies in a row. But that being said, any time you have the opportunity to get into contention, you can learn from that and use it in future events. You definitely get more momentum when guys are playing well. Both missed the cut at Shinnecock Hills with opening rounds of 78 and 80, respectively.

McIlroy produced seven birdies and a lone bogey at No. 18 - the only hole on which he missed the green in regulation. McIlroy has been trying to focus more on his golf swing and not so much the result or a number that he is trying to shoot.

A lot of golfers took advantage of the soft greens and favorable wind conditions Thursday.

Brian Harman shot a 4-under 66 on Friday to move to 10-under par and watched that hold up for the second-round lead in the Travelers Championship, thanks in part to a 10-second rule.

Renee Mutchnik, a spokeswoman for the Sun , said "we believe there are some injuries" but she did not immediately know how many. He urged the community to avoid the area and advised that a re-unification center had been set up at a nearby mall.

Brooks Koepka followed his second straight U.S. Open victory with a 68.

Casey started the day with a four-shot cushion over his closest rival American Russell Henley, but a birdie at the first hole was his only one the entire day as his swing deserted him.

"I've had a little time to practice over the last few days, working on some stuff that stood out the first two days at Shinnecock", he said. "But I'll be honest, I'm dead right now. I think the PGA Tour, specifically this tournament, does a great job in that".

Jordan Spieth gave fans at the 2017 Travelers Championship an unforgettable moment with his tournament victor from the greenside bunker and subsequent celebratory chest-bump with caddy Michael Greller.

Five of the top 10 golfers in the world will tee off at the PGA Tour Travelers Championship event this weekend in Cromwell.

PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas was in a group of 14 players at 66.

It is not the first time Spieth has been undone by the hole. His caddie tried to hand him a putter after the shot and Thomas shook him off.
