Justin Thomas trails Harman by 1 after record day at US Open

18 Junio 2017, 03:33 | Gerardo Tarin

"But as we all know, this game's all about putting".

Justin Thomas made history on Saturday when he shot a 63, shattering a record that stood for 44 years.

Harman was at 12-under 204. He's tied with Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey. But with virtually no breathing room at the top of the leaderboard, Harman knows he has little room for error - especially with high winds forecasted for Sunday's final round that could dramatically change how Erin Hills' demanding layout plays.

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

Nearly an inch of rain fell on the course overnight and Reed, who beat Rory McIlroy in the opening singles at Hazeltine a year ago, was one of many players to take advantage in pursuit of his first major title. "I have no idea how the weekend is going to go, no one does".

"I've got a busy summer, so I'm excited to play a lot of golf". Tomorrow's going to be fun. I felt like I made a couple of good putts there coming in on eight and nine, just didn't happen to go in.

And it is another milestone in a remarkable start to 2017 for Thomas.

He shot 59 this year in the first round of the Sony Open, the fourth of his PGA Tour victories.

"I'm motivated by the fact that I've made a plan and I've stuck to the plan so far", Harman said.

Thomas says "I had no idea in terms of 9 under being the best in the U.S. Open". I enjoyed the walk.

"I think the biggest thing is not getting ahead of yourself".

It appears that Erin Hills, a first-time venue, has a lower threshold than the normal Open course.

The 40-year-old Hoffman is playing in his sixth U.S. Open. Jason Day and Rory McIlroy also missed the cut, and this marked the first time the top three players in the world have all missed the cut in a major.

As he did most of the week, he hit it great - and then settled for a score that wasn't good enough.

Miller held the previous record after he shot 8-under in the final round of the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club. "Whether it's 20 under or 20 over, they want a good tournament and an action-packed leader board".

Thomas finished in style, and it had nothing to do with his hot pink trousers.

American Justin Thomas capped a record-setting third-round with a sensational eagle at the last at the U.S. Open on Saturday, moving closer to adding a maiden major title to an already glorious season of golf. And he missed an eminently makeable eagle putt after driving the green on the par-four 15th.

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

"When you're trying to aim at a target usually at a normal golf course, with normal width fairways, there's some pressure in hitting the fairway".

Johnson, who arrived late at Erin Hills following the birth of his second child on Monday, will now have extra time to spend with his infant son after returning a 73 for four-over.

A 94-year-old spectator has died at the U.S. Open.

Hideki Matsuyama and Chez Reavie climbed back into contention by shooting 65, tied for the lowest score of the day.

"If you look at the golf course and you even talk to me, Jason or Rory, this course sets up ideal for us", Dustin Johnson said.
