Golf: Rickie Fowler carries a one-stroke lead over Paul Casey and Xander Schauffele into the second round of the U.S. Open at Erin Hills. Fowler had seven birdies and no bogeys in a 7-under 65 that ties the best opening-round in relation to par at a U.S. Open. Seventeen players shot 3 under or better, but defending champ Dustin Johnson carded a 75, Rory McIlroy fired a 78 and Jason Day had a pair of triple-bogeys in a 79.
