Wind howling as final round at Erin Hills gets under way

19 Junio 2017, 02:17 | Gerardo Tarin

In the 116 previous U.S. Opens, only six players had ever reached 10-under par or better, never in the same tournament.

Starting today's third round, four players were tied at 137, 7-under par.

Harman, who is playing his first major since missing the cut in all four in 2015, fired six birdies and one bogey in a 67 to claim pole position in his bid to become the first left-handed victor of the US Open.

Compared to a lot of the up and comers, Rickie Fowler nearly seems like a Tour mainstay, having been around for a while now.

"I'm looking forward to hearing about that when I get back to the house since J.T. and I are staying together", said Fowler.

Scottie Scheffler attends Texas, so there is some rivalry to this low amateur battle, and he's now at -2.

Every era of the PGA has been defined by a player or two or three that stood above the rest. "But it isn't a U.S. Open course that I'm familiar with the way it was set up".

He floated a wedge shot to three feet to escape with his only bogey of the round.

And the prime beneficiary was Thomas, who catapulted up the leaderboard with his record-breaking nine-under-par 63.

Koepka birdied his first two holes to get to 13 under.

Someone will win this week, someone who makes a bunch of birdies on the back nine or maybe eagles the final hole.

Last season, Dustin Johnson received $1.8 million for his efforts at Oakmont.

This is his third appearance at the US Open, and the first time he has made the cut.

The U.S. Open has always been my favorite tournament. Not to mention that he hit a jaw dropping shot to break the record.

It had been a tightly packed leaderboard throughout the third day with six or seven players regularly holding that top spot. Now Brooks Koepka, one behind Harman, is providing another example of such a golfer. "This went totally against the tradition of the U.S. Open". She thought for a second and replied, "16 birdies".

The US Open announced in February that its wallet had bulged to an eye-popping $12 million ($9.37 million), a new record for most money paid out to a field. And then he made birdie on the next hole.

The U.S. Open didn't seem to faze him, and he delivered a variety of big shots that led to his sensational finish. He takes a wide stance and moves his upper body a lot on his forward swing to accomplish much weight shift. He shot 81 the next day in a blustery wind.

The flag commemorates the late Arnold Palmer's win at the 1960 U.S. Open at Cherry Hills. At that point, he was leading by seven shots.

Brian Harman is the leader at Erin Hills.

Brian Harman and Justin Thomas will be the...

Unusually, the finale will not feature any of the world's top three players. He tees off later Sunday.

With the US Open weather looking like it could have winds of up to 16 miles per hour and with gusts of around 25mph - scoring should be a little trickier in the final round. Even par, for so long the scoring standard at this event, has been good enough for just a share of 43rd place so far.

Morgan shot 77 and, remarkably, still had the lead at 4-under 212.

"A lot of young guys, lot of great players", he said.

"I knew I hit it really well", he said.

The U.S. Open is being played this week at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin.

The wind is gusting up to 25 miles per hour with the forecast calling for it to go as high as 30 miles per hour in the afternoon when the leaders tee off.

"It was obviously an awesome day", he said on Saturday.

The course had been softened by rain earlier in the week, and it finally played the way the USGA wanted in the final round. He made two more birdies, including one on the par-3 seventh that put him at 12 under.

Fleetwood picked up a victory in Abu Dhabi on the European Tour while Rickie Fowler, who will start two behind the pacesetter, is widely regarded as the current best golfer not to have won a major.
