US Open golf 2017: Round one live stream, Aussie Marc Leishman firing, Rickie Fowler takes early lead

RICKIE Fowler is off to a great start in pursuit of his first major title.

The 28-year-old Fowler closed out a 7-under 65 with par on the tricky No. 9 at Erin Hills, playing at just 150 yards but with plenty of trouble lurking around the green. Brian Harman and Tommy Fleetwood each had a 67, and Brooks Koepka also is tied for second at 5 under.

Fowler had seven birdies and no bogeys.

Ernie Els and Patrick Reed are tied for fifth at 4 under.

Paul Casey is in the red through his first two holes at the U.S. Open. Casey eagled the par-5, 613-yard No. 1, just like Masters winner Sergio Garcia in a group just before his threesome. Unlike Garcia, Casey followed his eagle with a birdie on the par-4, 330-yard No. 2. The Englishman is ranked 14th in the world.
