Blimp goes down at US Open golf tournament in Wisconsin

Damon Campbell | 16 June, 2017, 06:23

The 33-year-old Victorian has Rickie Fowler's clubhouse lead in his sights, bagging five birdies in his first 12 holes at Wisconsin's Erin Hills on Thursday. He became the third player to shoot seven-under in a first round of the US Open following Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf, who both registered seven-under 63s at Baltusrol in 1980. No one else was on board the blimp.

"That's definitely been something that's been nice to have on days where you're not exactly on and just understanding and freeing yourself up because you know if you might miss something, okay, I'll just get it up-and-down".

"I just did a good job".

"You can not play this golf course if you're not in position off the tee, and I wasn't in position", McIlroy said.

Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood of England and Brooks Koepka each shot 5-under 67 to pace the rest of Thursday's morning field.

He went through a lull in mid-May, missing back-to-back cuts in the Players Championship and the AT&T Byron Nelson, but he'd bounced back.

"Yeah. My caddie made a comment on the 9th hole".

Just got to the #USOpen and the blimp caught fire and crashed. You add seven birdies to that card and savor your "stress-free" day, man, that's tempting fate.

"I'm a little frustrated that I shot three-over", he said. That would have been fine.

US consumer prices slipped 0.1 per cent in May
Medical services such as the cost of doctor's visits dipped 0.1 percent in May but have risen 2.5 percent over the past 12 months. That has led some retailers, including Macy's M.N , Sears SHLD.O and Abercrombie & Fitch ANF.N to announce shop closures.

His withdrawal marked the end of a golfing era with the 117th U.S. Open becoming the first major to not include Mickelson and/or Tiger Woods since the 1994 Masters. "Seven under is ridiculous". It just looked like I was putting at half a cup.

World No 5 Jordan Spieth, the 2015 US Open victor at then rookie host Chambers Bay, has dropped to at one-over (through 15).

And they had plenty of company in red numbers, so much that Erin Hills set a U.S. Open record for the first round by yielding 44 sub-par rounds, breaking by five the record set in 1990 at Medinah.

The last six major champions - Sergio Garcia, Jimmy Walker, Henrik Stenson, Dustin Johnson, Danny Willett and Jason Day - were all first-time major champions and, after the Spaniard's win at Augusta, Fowler is now deemed by many to be the best current player without a major title.

The graduation starts at noon Wisconsin time.

But when play started in ideal conditions, Mickelson informed USGA executive director Mike Davis he would not be able to play and left first alternate Roberto Diaz to take his place, alongside Stewart Cink and Steve Stricker, in a group due to tee off at 2.20pm local time.

The former top-ranked player in the world had returned to form in recent weeks.

"I did feel guilty", Snedeker said after Thursday's 70. "I missed one fairway, one green and that was the double bogey. But I'd rather be remembered for something that's done on Sunday".

"There's plenty of room out there, plenty of opportunities".
