US Open social round-up: Record-breaker Thomas steals show, holes incredible putt

18 Junio 2017, 04:12 | Gerardo Tarin

It never has been.

Nick Rogness felt as nervous as anyone at the U.S. Open - not because of a golf club in his hand but the diamond ring in his pocket. Casey is tied with Rickie Fowler at 7 under for the lead. "But there's way too many holes out here where one bad shot could be a double bogey quickly".

This isn't like most Opens. Thomas capped off his record day on the 667-yard 18th hole at Erin Hills with the prettiest 3-wood he ever hit, stopping 8 feet away on a green where some players struggled to land a wedge. It led to an eagle to close out his 63.

With Father's Day on Sunday, a lot of families walked the fairways at Erin Hills Golf Course.

MONEY PUTT: Jason Kokrak made a 16-foot putt on his final hole, No. 9, for a birdie that got him to 1 over - good enough to make the cut. And he wasn't through.

Casey started eagle-birdie and finished with two birdies over the final four holes for his 66. Former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson shot a 71, though he was still seven shots behind. And then Morgan came undone.

Harman had one bogey Saturday, at the par-4 third hole, to go with six birdies.

Morgan shot 77 and, remarkably, still had the lead at 4-under 212. It would have been the round of the day had Thomas not shot 63.

Spieth, who won the 2015 event, dropped away with a 76 leaving him in 59th at 4-over while 2014 victor Kaymer fell to even-par after a 75. No one had a chance.

After an opening round 74, world number four Hideki Matsuyama looked ready to join the parade of top ranked players to the exit but the Japanese hit back with the joint best round of the day of seven-under 65 to shoot up the leaderboard and into contention at five-under.

Furyk reached 10-under 200 with a 67 in the third round at Olympia Fields, giving him a three-shot lead over Stephen Leaney of Australia.

On the longest course ever for a major, the cut was the lowest at the U.S. Open since 1990.

A commercial blimp crashed to the ground and caught fire just outside the course Thursday, about the time the county health department was analyzing samples that confirmed evidence of the E. coli bacteria in water at a hydration station near the 12th hole.

His good form is the result of a turnaround in two key areas: His putting, which saw him jump from 131st in the tour's strokes gained statistic last season to 29th in 2017, and his driving, which propelled him from 97th on tour to 39th.

He rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 5 from the edge of the green that broke so severely that he stood with his toes facing the hole and rapped the ball toward his left foot.

It appears that Erin Hills, a first-time venue, has a lower threshold than the normal Open course. World number one Johnson becomes the ninth player to miss the cut having won the USGA's blue ribbon event 12 months previous. He missed almost two months at the start of the year when he was diagnosed with a slight rib fracture, and then the latest break after The Players Championship.

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. And I feel like once the can gets open, I'll start pouring them in. The tournament was never really in doubt after that, though the wind arrived and Kaymer couldn't maintain the pace. He shot 72 in the third round for an 8-under 202. He shot 73 and missed the cut by three.
