“I remember saying to myself, ‘Well, you made a mess of that start,’” Casey told the New York Times.
He bogeyed the 15th hole to compound his problems but then steadied himself with a par on the 16th.

“You’re not going to play a U.S. Open without getting knocked around or knocked down. It’s whether you get up.”
Brooks Koepka continued to hold his own while Rickey Fowler fell out of the top spot and was hovering around the lower top five after shattering records Thursday.
