Tricky conditions as players begin third round of US Open

Tricky conditions as players begin third round of US Open

But nearly as soon as he signed his card, Thomas was overtaken by the understated Brian Harman, who'll take a one-shot lead into tomorrow's final round after his own dazzling 63 on a day of incredible scoring.

Miller mostly took exception with Erin Hills' massive fairways, a stark departure from the USGA's preference to take its premier event to courses with narrow corridors and thick rough.

Harman, shot a five-under 67 to take the 54-hole lead at 12-under par, just one shot ahead of Thomas. He was 10 under, only two shots behind.

"I'm proud of the way I hung in there today". I had no idea that 9 under was the best ever in an Open, so that was pretty cool once I saw my card. You could get after it a little bit.

Birdie - Tommy Fleetwood: The Englishman made a mess of the final hole, but he's still just one shot off the lead after shooting 68.

In major championship history, 31 players have shot 63 in men's major championships.

Moving Day sure lived up to its name at the Erin Hills on Saturday, as 11 golfers shot at least 4-under par, including a record setting performance from Justin Thomas, who is now the co-favorite to win the tournament. Thomas, who had two bogeys on Saturday, birdied Nos.

He then drilled a 300-yard second shot to around eight feet before rolling in his eagle putt to roars from the galleries.

"But it feels great to be part of United States open history, and I've obviously put myself in with a great chance to win the tournament". "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did".

Fowler likes his chances of breaking his major duck on Sunday. "And at the end of the day add them up and see how you do.' It seems to be working pretty well". He spent all day in the knee-high fescue and shot 78, his worst U.S. Open score.

"I felt like my game has been good enough to compete in the majors this year". And I feel like once the can gets open, I'll start pouring them in.

Fowler is paired with Si Woo Kim (9-under) who's snuck in under the radar with three consistent rounds.

Thomas' historic round included nine birdies, including three straight to finish the front nine.

There will be an 18-hole playoff on Monday if the leaders are tied after 72 holes.

The 24-year-old is seeking his first major, although he has won four times on the US PGA Tour and is regarded as one of the hottest young players in the world.

This was Reed's day before Thomas raised the bar, Fleetwood refused to be intimidated - aside from one aberration on his final hole - and Harman flew under the radar.

Matsuyama, the world number four, had to settle for a one-under-par 71 which left him on six under, six off the pace. And with no previous major champion within shouting distance of the lead (none within eight shots), Thomas has a golden opportunity to win his first.
