Once again on Friday, the golfers beat the course at the 2017 U.S. Open. In the second round of the second golf major of the year, two more golfers shot seven under par — Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and Chez Reavie of Wichita, Kan. For the first time in U.S. Open history, three golfers in one tournament shot seven under par in one round. Rickie Fowler of Murrieta, Calif. shot a seven under par in the first round on Thursday.
Even though Matsuyama, Reavie and Fowler shot seven under par in a single round, none of the three have the lead after the second round of the U.S. Open. There is currently a four-way tie for first. England's Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood along with Americans Brian Harman of Savannah, Ga. and Brooks Koepka of West Palm Beach, Fla. are at seven under par. Fowler is currently tied for fifth at -6. Matsuyama is tied for eighth at -5 and Reavie is tied for 13th at -4.
Matsuyama and Reavie also moved up significantly on the leaderboard. Matsuyama moved from 82nd to eighth place (74 spots) and Reavie moved from 102nd to 13th place (89 spots). Fowler, Matsuyama, Reavie, Casey, Fleetwood, Harman or Koepka have never won a major in their golf careers.
