Thomas fires 63 as scores tumble

19 Junio 2017, 03:42 | Gerardo Tarin

This is the first U.S. Open where he made the cut. He rolled in six birdies, including three straight at holes 14, 15 and 16 that put him within striking distance. He dedicated his first victory, the 2013 Johnnie Walker Championship, to his dog, Maisy.

Reed, who beat Rory McIlroy in the first singles contest at Hazeltine a year ago and was wearing the pants from his Ryder Cup uniform, said: "You always can take that fire from Ryder Cup and use it in other events".

"It was a great day", said Fowler, who is still gunning for his first major title. Koepka, playing one group ahead of Harman, is at 13 under.

Hideki Matsuyama is making one last push at the U.S. Open.

Harman had one bogey Saturday, at the par-4 third hole, to go with six birdies. "I haven't had a whole lot of success at U.S. Opens so far, but I felt like this course has done pretty well for me".

The world No 5, who carded a four-over 76 on Saturday, finished with a score of one over but was full of compliments for the challenge posed by the USGA at the second major of the year. But in his last Tour stop at the FedEx St. Jude tournament in Memphis, Summerhays missed the cut.

Fowler won't carry as much baggage into the final round as Garcia did at the Masters, where he ended a string of 73 majors without a win.

But the long-hitting 26-year-old from Southport outside Liverpool is firing on all cylinders at links-styled Erin Hills and stands one shot from the lead as Sunday's final round began. Southpaws have won every major except the U.S. Open. Five players are at double-digit under par through 54 holes.

Scheffler plays for the University of Texas, and Champ plays for Texas A&M.

Fowler's seven birdies were from no more than 12 feet, including three in a row around the turn. He went from a tie for second at the beginning of the day to a tie for sixth. Regardless of the weather, it didn't take long for the 24-year-old Thomas to understand the significance of his record round.

Thomas, decked out in shocking fluorescent pink trousers, produced a no less electric performance signing for nine-under 63 to equal the lowest numerical score in a major and the best ever in the 117-year history of the US Open in relation to par.

Thomas poured in the eagle to become the 29th player with a 63 in a major championship.

It just wasn't enough to faze Koepka. He failed to get up-and-down from behind the 17th green, and then he three-putted from 40 feet on the final hole to finish at 8-under 272.

The scoring at this year's US Open has been unlike any other. "But it isn't a US Open course that I'm familiar with the way it was set-up". While stronger winds made tee-to-green play more hard during the final round, they may have also helped Spieth on the greens where he needed only 29 putts.

"It was a good bogey though", joked Fleetwood, who regained his composure to hit a superb pitch from well below the putting surface.

Englishman Fleetwood gave up his share of first place with a sloppy bogey at the 18th, leaving Harman (67) on his own at 12 under.
