Burns managed to stay composed on Thursday, shooting a 74 in challenging conditions, but Friday was a complete disaster. The world's 14th-ranked golfer failed to break 80 in Round 2
and dropped off the leaderboard, missing the cut at the PGA Championship for the first time in his career. He also made two triples, a double, and four bogeys.
Im struggled to make any progress on Thursday, shooting a 10-over 80 in Round 1 without recording a birdie. After his performance the day before, he recovered with a 73 on Friday, but he had little chance of making the weekend.
This week, Gooch just couldn't get it going. Even though he only made one significant stroke, the bogeys accumulated up and prevented him from recording a high score.
Expectations were high for the second major of the year after a run of dominance on the LIV Golf tour. However, after two unimpressive rounds at Oak Hill, he's leaving early.
At Oak Hill, Young just could not afford a putt. Despite having excellent ball striking, he finished last in the field in SG: Putting.
Young came into this week as a popular choice after finishing T3 at the PGA last year. But if you can't locate the cup's bottom, it's difficult to compete.
The last winner of the U.S. Open had a difficult week. Only three birdies in two days were all he could manage because his game was terrible in every way.
According to Data Golf, he was in last place in three of the four major strokes gained categories, which is no way to compete at a major.
