Record tumbles at US Open

18 Junio 2017, 04:29 | Gerardo Tarin

The USGA has said it will not be moving next month's U.S. Women's Open away from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., about 45 miles west of New York City.

Similar scoring had initially appeared a possibility at Erin Hills, which became the longest course in major championship history at 7,845 yards in the first round and featured such thick fescue grass that patches had to be chopped down on four holes on Tuesday. "I was just happy that I was the one that was able to take advantage of it today".

"This is my first time in contention in a major, so whatever happens I'll be doing my best and seeing how well I can finish". Not that he will care about that; Thomas has etched his name into golfing folklore, switching the narrative of a hitherto competitive but hardly dramatic US Open in the process.

Fowler is already a star, but a win at Erin Hills would provide something greater: validation. The geometric wonder of a birdie putt on No. 5 cured a peeved feeling - the ball inexplicably had stopped on the fringe beforehand - until he sent it sideways, perfectly reading a break that curved right toward a loopy happiness.

Justin Thomas made history on Saturday when he shot a 63. 15 and 17 before he hit a 3-wood on his approach shot on the par-5 18th hole to set up a short eagle putt that allowed him to get to 11-under.

"I'm looking forward to my shot at it, I know it's not going to be an easy day, for sure", Fowler said. The 24-year-old from Louisville joins Johnny Miller, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Vijay Singh as doing precisely that in the US Open.

Brian Harman stood on the podium with hands on hips, giving answers in the kind of matter-of-fact voice expected from someone used to the spotlight of a major championship.

Reed was one of the biggest movers, powering up the board with a dazzling seven-under-par 65 that included four birdies on the front nine against one bogey. And I feel like once the can gets open, I'll start pouring them in.

CINKING IN: Stewart Cink had a bad start to the third round of his 20th U.S. Open.

He then drilled a 300-yard second shot to around eight feet before rolling in his eagle putt to roars from the galleries. He shot a 5-under on Thursday, 2-under on Friday and 5-under-par again on Saturday.

The US Open tournament organisers have historically prided themselves on trying to make the winning score as close to level par as possible.

While Fleetwood was enjoying himself, fellow Englishman Paul Casey saw his title hopes nosedived as he crashed to his second double bogey of the tournament. On typical U.S. Open greens, that would have run all the way off the back of the green.

And despite starting his second round with bogeys on his first two holes, the South African bounced back to record a superb 66 which he matched in the third round.

"That was the best shot I hit all day". On 18 he drove into a bunker but saved par and signed for 68.

"I played a lot", a smiling Harman said.

A normal US Open set-up involves rock hard greens where the ball has as much chance of stopping as a bus on a frozen lake, and the green speeds are usually 14 or more (but less than Augusta). Former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson shot a 71, though he was still seven shots behind.
