Day 3 at the US Open: How locals fared Saturday

Brian Harman hits from the 15th tee during the second round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Friday

The U.S. Open has always been my favorite tournament. 1, 7 and 9 on the front nine and three in a row on Nos.

Then there was the Par-5 18th hole. Spieth made birdies on the first two holes, both of which are playing downwind. There will be lighter traffic on the leaderboard Sunday, as only six players will be within three strokes of Brian Harman's lead. "Someone has a very good chance of ending up with their first major tomorrow".

Miller took nothing away from Thomas' round or Erin Hills, but remained consistent with his views in recent years that the traditional U.S. Open course setup faced by his era is not the same today. And with no previous major champion within shouting distance of the lead (none within eight shots), Thomas has a golden opportunity to win his first.

Now consider that the largest 36-hole comeback in U.S. Open history was 11 shots by Lou Graham in 1975. Few can match Koepka's length off the tee, which he's used to his advantage this week on Erin Hills' wide fairways.

Meanwhile, the wind has died so much that while the course is getting firm and the greens a little crusty, it hasn't affected the scoring. The USGA is providing complimentary bottled water the rest of the week.

The 23-year-old from San Diego had been having an excellent debut at the Open. There are also more than 10 dozen golf balls, one from each of Thomas' victories dating to his earliest days.

Thomas started his record round with birdies on the first two holes.

Dustin Johnson was right on the cut line with eight holes to play.

Thomas revealed he had failed to pack a snack in his bag and that his groaning stomach had been affecting his concentration for the holes leading up to his eagle putt.

On Friday, Li birdied two of his final three holes to make the cut with a shot to spare, even hitting the flagstick with his approach shot at his 17th hole, the par-4 eighth.

"Yeah, 12-under, I'd have about a ten-shot lead in most Opens", said Harman after shooting a 5-under 67 on Saturday.

"I hope the moment will come as soon as possible". Harman is a two-time PGA Tour victor that often gets overlooked. The setup is more like a tough tour event than a U.S. Open course. McIlroy came to life when it was far too late.

"It would be great to follow in Justin (Rose)'s footsteps". By the end of a wild and wide-open Saturday, five players were double digits under par. There are more red numbers on the leaderboard than on a Las Vegas roulette table, which goes against just about everything America's national golf championship is supposed to be about. He went from pouring putts into the center of the cup to burning the edges, and his 39 on the back nine cost him the lead, though not his chances of breaking through for that first major.

"It was obviously an awesome day", he said. It looks like he could swing the club with a plate on top of his head that would not fall off. Wish I could have done that.
