Justin Thomas joins leader logjam at US Open

18 Junio 2017, 09:34 | Dolorita Barahona

The USGA wants to get away from references of the US Open being the toughest test in golf, preferring instead the "ultimate test". The most impressive shot of his round was a insane sideways birdie putt from the fringe on the par-4 No. 5 hole. No matter what that's something when you're always going to walk up the 18th green with your best mate.

Day, the world number three, shot a 3-over-par 75 on day two to be 10-over and he will be joined on the sidelines by Scott, after the 2013 Masters champion finished on 3-over courtesy of a 75 in the second round.

A U.S. Open short on big names - with a leaderboard that at times seemed like a phonebook of random people - found a bright star under a partially cloudy sky at Erin Hills.

There were 18 rounds in the 60s, starting with one for the record book.

"I don't know", Thomas said when asked what he'd say to Miller, "but I'll be pretty happy".

McIlroy entered the U.S. Open having not competed since last month's Players.

Thirty-two players had sub-par rounds on Saturday, the most ever for the third round.

Rickie Fowler, on the verge of being left behind, rallied with three straight birdies and shot 68. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it". "It's cool, but it's just the first round", Fowler said afterwards.

"I'm not sure when it's going to sink in or when I'm going to realize what I did", Thomas said. I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes.

"The golf course has got plenty of moisture in it", Justin Rose said after his 72.

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., slid down the leaderboard. He won that tournament by seven shots.

If his hot pink trousers were not enough, Thomas finished in style.

Justin Thomas is congratulated by his caddie after an eagle on 18 gave him a 9-under 63.

"The finish was awesome". I don't think I could play any different or score any better than I have done, and you can't do anything about what anybody else is doing.

He might need one at this rate. "And secondly, Erin Hills isn't exactly Oakmont".

Thomas broke the U.S. Open record for low round in relation to par.

The 2011 champion McIlroy shot a second round 71 but his horror opening score of five-over on day one means his uncertain season continues as he missed the one-over cut line; the joint-highest in US Open history. "It's a good 8 in the end". "You play 54 holes around here before the tournament, I felt really really comfortable". "Today I started off a bit ropey".

The 2009 British Open victor made his first appearance at the U.S. Open in three years, having secured a qualifying spot at the Columbus, Ohio, sectional.

The Kentucky native became the youngest player to shoot 50 on the US PGA Tour during the first round of his Sony Open victory in January. A chip went sailing past the pin, leaving a long putt to save par which was duly missed. Later, a long put for bogey rolled just right of the hole before he tapped in. With Johnson, McIlroy and Day misfiring, it was left to a clutch of unheralded players to dominate the upper reaches of the leaderboard.

Brooks Koepka started on No. 10 and made four birdies on his front nine to get to 9 under, moving into a tie with Fowler for the top spot.

He missed a five-footer for birdie on his first and then squandered another chance on 11, where he missed a 12-footer.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course".

But the work is not done.

But the third-round leader at the U.S. Open?

Holmes expects the scoring to get more hard over the final rounds.

Reed has been a dynamo in Ryder Cup play but never has won a major.
