Dustin Johnson sends classy tweet after US Open

Zach Johnson plays a shot from a bunker on the 18th hole during the second round of the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club

"But it's the U.S. Open".

Johnson extended his lead on Friday, ending the day as the only play under par (4-under). Putts were rolling some 50 feet by the hole and over the green.

Did the USGA go too far?

If that does occur, then the course is only going to get more hard as the day goes on.

The 2018 U.S. Open is officially off the rails. During this year's edition, he went up against Johnson who is ranked number one in the world and second-seed Justin Thomas.

"I didn't feel like I played badly at all". "Seven-over usually is a awful score, but with the greens the way they got this afternoon, they were very, very hard".

Retief Goosen was the most recent player with a good chance of repeating since odd did it.

Atop the leaderboard at three over par are Johnson - who shot a seven-over 77 - defending champion Brooks Koepka, and the unlikely tandem of Daniel Berger and Tony Finau, who shot jaw-dropping morning rounds of 66 to emerge from irrelevance and play their way into contention for a major championship. The 14-time major champion settled for the 101st spot out of 156 competitors at the end of the first day.

The strong June sunshine will also mean that anyone at Shinnecock Hills will need sunscreen and sunglasses.

"Is that an apology?" he tweeted. "How can this team keep doing this without consequences?" Guys are spinning the balls on the greens. He dropped his first drive of the day within 13 feet of the pin and watched his birdie putt skid right by the hole. Johnson then had to play the remaining holes unsure of what his score was.

"If they'd have shot 4-under this afternoon, it would probably have been the best round of golf anybody's ever seen", Koepka pointed out, referring to Finau and Berger's morning rounds.

"I barely made the cut". He sounds. ready. "I feel really good about the position I'm in", said Koepka. He added, "I would have liked about 6 mulligans today". We'll see what kind of effect that has on Sunday's round - and where the pins are placed. "So I felt like it was tough to get a good beat on the speed today".

Leaning on his club, Matt Parziale crossed one leg over the other and placed the free hand on his hip. Both had three straight bogeys. Rose is just a shot back at four-over and another European, Henrik Stenson is five-over.

The water hoses were out early Sunday for the final round of the U.S. Open in its attempt to slightly soften Shinnecock Hills.

"Be care what you wish for", Rose said. The New Rochelle residents are enjoying their first U.S. Open.

And typical of an old-styled U.S. Open, there were plenty of complaints. I could have been going back and forth. When is enough enough? I can totally see him shooting 71 and winning this thing on Sunday.

Not all the statements were verbal.

Mickelson's actions were reminiscent of John Daly hitting a moving ball at Pinehurst No. 2 in the 1999 U.S. Open.

Fleetwood bogeyed the ninth, but he dominated the 12th through 15 holes, birdieing each one to move himself to two over. On the 18th hole in the second round, Triplett stuck his putter in the ground as a backstop when his ball was headed back down from the hole.

Mickelson's shocking display in the third round stunned playing partner Andrew Johnston, who called it "a moment of madness".

"There's no-one more confident than me", Koepka said. I know it's a two-shot penalty. But I felt like they were just a little inconsistent. It's my understanding of the rules. So, it was just time.

Johnson's best finish at a U.S. Open was a T-8 in 2016.

The scoring average of 75.33 was the highest for a third round in the US Open since 2000 at Pebble Beach. The day's only other sub-par round was Kiradech Aphibarnrat's 68, which put the Thai into a tie for seventh on six-over.
