Seeking answers, Jordan Spieth struggles in 3rd round at US Open

19 Junio 2017, 05:13 | Gerardo Tarin

And after Haotong Li made a small piece of history Friday by surviving the halfway cut at the U.S. Open, he closed out a frustrating third round with a quadruple-bogey at the par-5 18th on Saturday.

Paul Casey, who also started on seven under, fell away with a three-over 75.

American Justin Thomas led a charge by early starters up the U.S. Open leaderboard on Saturday, grabbing a share of the third round lead.

At 9 under is Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim (68).

Masters champion Sergio Garcia is in a group of nine players on four under after he posted a one-under 71. This is the first [U.S.] Open I've been exempt for.

Playing in the final group with Harman will be Thomas, who is almost as small but one of the longest hitters in the game.

Fiji's Vijay Singh also recorded a seven-under 63, at Olympia Fields in 2003.

Brooks Koepka is closing in on the U.S. Open title. "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".

Cameron Champ, the only other amateur to make the cut, shot a 76 to finish at even par. Five players are at double-digit under par through 54 holes. The soft Black Course allowed players to take dead aim, and Barnes opened with rounds of 67 and 65. The 3-wood he crushed then ran past the green, so on Saturday he thought an iron might do.

"It was a good bogey though", joked Fleetwood, who regained his composure to hit a superb pitch from well below the putting surface. Obviously, I have no idea what tomorrow holds, but I'm more motivated by the way that I'm striking the ball.

"I think since my dad dropped me off at football practice and told me to not be disappointed if I didn't get to play at all", Harman said, drawing laughs. Many consider it one of the greatest rounds ever played.

"I felt like I've been playing pretty well all week and didn't have quite the numbers to show for it", Thomas continued.

Brooks Koepka, a strapping Floridian with wowing golf talent, a cool disposition, an athlete's cocksure gait and a two-year place at the fringe of the bright lights, surged from that fringe on a blustery Sunday at Erin Hills. He shot 72 in the third round for an 8-under 202. He capped his round with a brilliant 3-wood from 310 yards and made an 8-foot eagle putt.

Hideki Matsuyama is second at 12 under.

"That was the best shot I hit all day".

Oh yeah, and he loves hitting his driver off the deck.

Patrick Reed (-8): Reed rocked his Ryder Cup USA trousers on Saturday, which was unbelievable even though his 65 got drowned in Lake Michigan by Thomas' 63. And most of my birdie putts were uphill and I could attack. Kim is three shots back and one ahead of Patrick Reed, Russell Henley and Charley Hoffman.

However, not all Americans fared well. He was only two behind when he made the turn, but bogeys on the 12th and 15th holes - and no birdies until No. 18 - ended his hopes. "I've been striking the ball well". "It just has been trying to figure it out on and around the greens". "Looking forward to the next two days".

They fearlessly attacked the pins and nobody was more ruthless than Thomas, who ripped apart the links-style layout carding nine birdies and two bogeys before capping his record-smashing effort by coolly rolling in an eight-foot putt for eagle at the par-five 18th.
