Blimp goes down at US Open golf tournament in Wisconsin

Crash scene is about 1 mile SE of Erin Hills.

Maynard said he had no more information on the pilot's status or what caused the accident.

The ploy succeeded, and as Rickie Fowler was adopted by the galleries as if one of their own, he also let his clubs do their own talking with a marvellous opening round 65, seven-under-par, that saw him sprint off the starting blocks in this opening round of the US Open.

Henrik Stenson caught a break with a ideal shot.

Fowler's opening salvo tied a PGA record for the lowest score to par in the first round of a U.S. Open, matching Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf, who each shot a 7-under 63 in 1980 at Baltustrol Golf Club.

Spain's Jon Rahm said the US Open venue was "like a links golf course on steroids". One example of that was Fowler hitting 3-wood into the green on the 632-yard 18th hole, with a breeze at his back. Sheriff's officials said the pilot was the only one on board. "I started missing some left on the course and tried to sort of correct it on the way in and missed a couple right".

"That's definitely been something that's been nice to have on days where you're not exactly on and just understanding and freeing yourself up because you know if you might miss something, okay, I'll just get it up-and-down", said Fowler, victor of the Honda Classic earlier in the season and runner-up in The Memorial two weeks ago. "I can't put it any other way".

In the modern era, only two players have won multiple majors after claiming their first aged 37 or older, with Angel Cabrera winning his first of two at that age and Mark O'Meara winning twice in 1998 aged 41.

McDowell said Erin Hills is a fair course, but, to him, the ninth sticks out like a sore thumb.

Jason Day, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy will...

It wasn't the only one. His ball landed on the green and only rolled out about 10 feet.


But a week of rain which has softened greens and made fairways more forgiving created an inviting start to the second major of the season.

"It's weird", he said.

"It's not like I gave up".

Nor did McIlroy, though it must have been tempting. For now, the noticeably hirsute 33rd ranked player in the world will surely be focused on the immediate task of following up a bogey-free round dotted with five birdies.

"It started deflating, and then it started going down", witness Bryan Rosine told the Journal-Sentinel.

He hit that to 5 feet and was happy to make bogey.

A further bogey followed on the par-four 15th. After his round was over, he cut a lonely figure on the end of the driving range, trying to work out the kinks and stay positive.

The USGA, however, have never been fans of too much of a good thing, and players were more than willing to play both sides of the fence. I've never seen a plane crash, blimp crash, anything like that. "So if I get through to the weekend, I can slowly inch my way back".

"I didn't hit it great", he said.

"It's just nice to go out and actually execute the game plan".
