Arnold Palmer's 1960 US Open win honored at Erin

Brooks Koepka traveled around the world to find his game. Casey's third round of 75 dropped him from a tie for the lead to joint 17th.

The 26-year-old looked set to record his second bogey-free round of the week - nearly unheard of at the US Open - on Saturday until an unfortunate dropped shot at the last meant he fell one back of the lead.

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. Someone can get out early and shoot a low score.

"What I've done this week is unbelievable", Koepka. The ball landed on the front of the green just soft enough that it rolled out 8 feet by the hole. Spieth was at 4 over for the tournament - 16 shots behind leader Brian Harman.

His reaction was subdued, just like his close friend and last year's U.S. Open champion, Dustin Johnson. It was never that way in the U.S. Open.

And now he gets to keep it for a year, with his name on it.

Thomas, the 24-year-old from Kentucky who is a major away from joining the young elite in golf, only added to a year of low numbers.

Of the first 26 golfers on the course, only three were under par for the day, led by Jordan Spieth, who was two under through seven holes.

"Someone has a very good chance of ending up with their first major tomorrow", Fowler said. The 20-year-old from Dallas finished as the leading amateur on the highly respectable 72-hole aggregate of one-under.

"You kind of just take today with a grain of salt, laugh it off as best you can and try to just forget about it", Hadwin said. He came and kicked everyone's (behind) over there, didn't he? I've pictured winning the US Open a lot of times before. "Now he's done it in a major".

Hideki Matsuyama is making one last push at the U.S. Open. So continues an ominous trend in Thomas's career; when things start to go wrong, he is not particularly adept at stemming the flow.

Johnny Miller owned the previous best round of eight-under 63 set en route to victory in the final round at the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont. McIlroy and Tiger Woods (12 under at Pebble Beach in 2000) had been the only players to finish there.

Four other players are tied for 10th on seven under.

Heading into Sunday's final round, yours truly had trudged 97, 527 steps this week. On eight he put his 154-yard approach shot to about two feet and made the putt.

Despite the hard finish, Hadwin leaves Erin Hills with a share of the U.S. Open record for consecutive birdies after making six in a row during his four-under 68 on Thursday.

Koepka takes home $2.16 million, the largest single-day earnings in golf.

Another eagle was available when Thomas drove the short, 288-yard par-4 15th hole.

Fleetwood, who was hoping to become the third English victor since 1924 after Tony Jacklin (1970) and Justin Rose (2013), began the day in a tie for second and made an encouraging start with a birdie from eight feet on the second.

"That means I'm a part of history", he said.
