It means Scott, Day, Wade Ormsby (six-over after a second 75) and Nick Flanagan (10-over after a 79) are all looking at a free weekend.
That's something Day, the No. 3 player in the world, rarely says at a major.
No one has accomplished such a feat since Bobby Jones swept the US and British Opens and Amateurs, the four biggest events of his day, in 1930.
He said that his 16 years of experience is what allowed him to keep the wheels from falling off on the par-5 14th hole.
There's a four-way tie for the lead at the U.S. Open.
Day shot a 75 for a two-day total of 10-over 154, ending at 17 the longest active streak of making the cut in the majors.
Harman made a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole to hold off Dustin Johnson and Pat Perez by a stroke.
"I started to let it go a little bit on the back nine and showed what I can do".
No one took advantage like Fowler.
Meanwhile, the wind has died so much that while the course is getting firm and the greens a little crusty, it hasn't affected the scoring.More news: Employees return to work at UPS warehouse in San Francisco
Lowry's front nine nearly saw the Esker Hills golfer play his way out of the tournament as he posted four bogeys with just the one shot gained. Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood, playing together, were tied for fourth at 6 under. Authorities believe it was from natural causes. No other information was provided.
Former Masters champion Danny Willett has withdrawn from the Open with a back injury.
And then, the old McIlroy kicked into gear and finished with a flurry of gained shots as he kept the ball in play off the tee and proved majestic with his mid-irons to set up several birdie chances. Brian Harman sits in first at -12 but course conditions have shown that nearly anyone in the top 10 could win the U.S. Open with a strong Round 4.
"Over the years, I've gotten a lot better managing that", Stricker said Friday. "Hopefully I've got a lot of the bad stuff out of my system yesterday and some parts today".
"They want par to be a good score", said English, "and this afternoon it will be".
He hit a 3-wood from 310 yards on the par-5 18th to set up his eagle putt. It helps that he made five consecutive birdies, just one short of the tournament record held by three players, including Adam Hadwin, who made six straight birdies in the first round Thursday.
The U.S. Open was only his sixth start this year. This one he'd rather forget. His drive appeared to sail into the rough. I just struggled on the greens.
Casey chopped his way to a triple bogey, only to respond with five straight birdies that carried him to a 1-under 71 and make him the first to post at 7-under 137.
The thrilling finish vaulted Thomas into the clubhouse lead on 11 under par late in the third round but with numerous contenders still out on the course and threatening to catch him.
But the Englishman now has a share of the lead at the U.S. Open.
On the Par-4 fifth hole, Thomas was just off the green. He tapped in for par.
