Paul Casey’s US Open challenge comes unstuck in the infamous Erin Hills fescue as he needs two attempts to extract his ball out of deep trouble

Paul Casey started his third round on moving day at the US Open in a share of the lead but his hopes for a first major hit a wall as the Englishman found trouble at the US Open.

Casey made the perfect start with a birdie at the first but his round unravelled on the third when he found the much maligned fescue rough with his second shot at the third.

The former world No 3 took two attempts to move his ball out of the hay and even then could only muster a triple bogey from off the putting green.

Casey also found trouble in the rough yesterday before making another triple bogey, that time at the par four 14th, .

The Englishman was three-over par through his opening 10 holes to move back to four under par for the competition as he played himself out of contention in Wisconsin.
