Harman leads US Open by 1 shot heading into final round

But Oostihuizen knows how quickly momentum can swing at a U.S. Open. If I wake up with the same feelings tomorrow I'm going to have a chance. The 2014 runner-up is just one-shot behind alongside Jamie Lovemark and JB Holmes.

Who will survive the toughest test of the... "And I'm sure it will be rough this weekend". Five players were two shots off the lead.

"The course will probably be longer".

The disappointed 21-year-old declined to be interviewed. But he also struggled around the greens, failing to get up and down once in six opportunities.

"It's still Saturday - 36 holes is a very long time in a U.S. Open". When he got to the course, his attention turned to the condition of the fine fescues on the fairways - playing hard and fast, he said, thanks to a few days without rain.

South Korea's Kim Si-Woo was one behind Fowler on nine under after also shooting 68, while three players - Patrick Reed, Russell Henley and Charley Hoffman were on eight under.

Although he has plenty of work to do during the weekend in order to be a threat, he did manage to make the cut.

When asked, Harman said that he plays with a proverbial chip on his shoulder. "Definitely had some mojo out there".

He is making his third start at the U.S. Open, with missed cuts in both previous starts in 2012 (77-72) and 2015 (69-79).

"Rickie was up there (and) us three played pretty solid", Niebrugge said.

Two rounds down and two to go at the US Open at Erin Hills and we are still no closer to discovering the identity of the 2017 US Open champion.

Harman, who is not the longest hitter in the field, but has an excellent putting stroke, shot a 5-under 67 Saturday to grab the lead.

And for all the birdies and blunders at Erin Hills, the most compelling image Friday came from the parking lot, where one star after another left town after missing the cut.

Schauffele's improbable time at the top has brought "just boatloads of support", he said.

Charley Hoffman is joining the jam-packed crowd near the top of the U.S. Open leaderboard. The "Wisconsin boy" said he'd be thinking about his family during his time at Erin Hills.

"I feel comfortable. Being in contention in a major is new and I'm excited", said Thomas. "He keeps me smiling".

BACKING OUT: Back problems forced Danny Willett to pull out of another tournament. The leaders still had another two hours before they teed off. Oosthuizen, the former British Open champion at St. Andrews, was hopeful of at least giving them something to think about.

And then, the old McIlroy kicked into gear and finished with a flurry of gained shots as he kept the ball in play off the tee and proved majestic with his mid-irons to set up several birdie chances.

But it's not. It's the U.S. Open.

And Erin Hills isn't the most expensive either. He has won one tournament on the PGA Tour.

Reigning Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim is lurking at 9 under.

"Next week is for totally different purposes".

Steve Stricker is soaking up the warmest ovations of the third round in his home state of Wisconsin.

"I had been swinging it well and it felt really, really good a couple holes later to be picking the ball out of the hole for a birdie".
