  • RORY McILROY: Late slip in Travelers Championship second round

Matt Jones has made a good start to the Travelers Championship near Hartford in CT and at the at the completion of day one is the leading Australian, one shot ahead of Jason Day.

Playing his sixth tournament in seven weeks, Spieth ran up a triple bogey en-route to a three-over-par 73 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.

"They've got some sort of magnetic sand for me", Spieth joked. I've just got to go out there and just keep the blinders on and focus on the holes and the shot at hand.

Johnson went out in the morning and led for most of the day. He began to heat up on the back nine with three birdies in a row.

Watching contenders struggle in the weekend wind at the US Open only made last week's missed cut more agonizing for Spieth, who had not missed a weekend at a major since the 2014 PGA. "So that's kind of how you've got to think about it is you have a lot of opportunity on the back side if you get the ball on the fairway. There are some holes you can get at".

McIlroy, a four-time Major champion, found a greenside bunker off the tee at the par-four 15th, blasted out to five feet and sank a birdie putt.

Although Spieth emerged victorious in the 2017 Travelers championship, he has had some trouble at No. 13 in the past. He saw the practice pay off, hitting 17 greens with seven birdies during his round of 64.

She said the hope is to see if "we can reach bi-, tri- or even multinational agreements to better solve certain problems". Despite the different perspectives, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said, "progress is possible on Thursday".

"We all as competitors and golfers, we want to have really, really hard tests that make you push it physically and mentally", Johnson said.

Local favourite Martin Kaymer shot a 68 to lurk just two off the pace in fourth spot.

Fleetwood shot a record-equalling final round of 63 at Shinnecock Hills to finish one shot behind eventual champion Brooks Koepka, who retained the US Open title.

That leaves No. 13 Paul Casey, who leads the field by four shots, and No. 9 Jason Day, who will try to overcome a six-shot deficit to Casey in today's final round. "Patience is always key for me, but at the same time, I'm probably going to let the reins down a little bit and fire at some flags". I think that's right, and it just slid by.

PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas was in a group of 14 players at 66. His caddie tried to hand him a putter after the shot and Thomas shook him off.

"The plan is to get in Sunday afternoon, Sunday evening to Carnoustie, and whether I get out there and I'm able to do anything Sunday, great", he said.

Harman had his short game working for the second consecutive day, taking 26 putts after needing only 23 during the first round.
