Charley Hoffman and Scott Piercy are tied for second place at even par.

"Dustin was in complete control of what he was doing," said playing partner Tiger Woods. "He's hitting the ball so flush and so solid. I know it's windy. It's blustery. It was raining early. But he's hitting right through it."

Ian Poulter, who shared the overnight lead with Johnson, reduced Johnson's lead to one with three birdies over a four hole span but a triple-bogey 7 at the 8th and a bogey at the 9th, his last two holes, saw him drop down to T4 with Brooks Koepka, Tommy Fleetwood and Henrik Stenson.

Koepka and Fleetwood carded four-under 66s, the best rounds of the tournament so far.

Tiger Woods failed to make the cut, the first US Open cut he has missed since 2015, after carding a 2-over 72 following his first round 78.

"I don't think you can be too happy and too excited about 10 over par," said Woods.

Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm also missed.
