USOpen: Four-way tie at Erin Hills

18 Junio 2017, 12:52 | Dolorita Barahona

American Justin Thomas equalled the lowest score in major championship history as England's Tommy Fleetwood remained in contention for a maiden major title in a pulsating US Open.

As for scoring drama - well, this was one time he may have wished he didn't know where he stood.

KEY STATISTIC: In 116 U.S. Opens to date, only six players had ever reached 10 under or better.

Brian Harman leads the US Open with one round to play at Erin Hills.

Taking the sting out of not having eight of the world's top 12 players around for the weekend, Justin Thomas shot a record-breaking 63 on Saturday. He'll head home to spend time with his son, River Jones Johnson, who was born Monday. Today really kind of stayed the same.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, of what can happen if you get out of position on this golfcourse, which is what I did on 14", said 14th-ranked Casey.

Those are just a few of the possible winners.

The stats prove him right.

Harman narrowly missed a birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole.

From that near meltdown, he hit the next wedge to 3 feet and made the putt to save a 6.

Meanwhile, Leishman had raced up the leaderboard through his opening 10 holes before a double bogey at the par-4 12th.

At least he'll have plenty of company at the airport. Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day - the top three players in the world, all of them professing expansive Erin Hills to be flawless for their games - spent Friday cleaning out their lockers after missing the cut.

"It's not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card, but I'm a pretty happy man".

"I'm not sure when it's going to sink in or when I'm going to realise what I did", he told a news conference. PGA champion Jimmy Walker missed the cut as he continues to recover from Lyme Disease.

It was the second straight year McIlroy missed the cut at the U.S. Open.

"Show up for the last six holes, anyway", McIlroy said. That's two Brits and two Americans, and no one you'd recognize if you saw them in the Tally Ho Pub & Grill a mile from Erin Hills. Harman made a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole to hold off Dustin Johnson and Pat Perez by a stroke.

Then, inexplicably, he lost his putting touch. Spieth ended up winning by a shot.

Hideki Matsuyama had quite a day at Erin Hills. "My goal heading into this season was to take everything I was already doing, and just to make it all work a little bit better". "I had to hit it all".

"It was definitely conducive for good scores today".

"I couldn't have shot any higher", Johnson said.

Koepka is one of those players that the smart guys like to put in their fantasy league. "We all play golf, and it's Father's Day weekend, so we thought it would be fun to get out here for a day", Lexi Jonas said.
