He made a birdie on the fifth hole when he putted the ball sideways because of a slope.

But with debut host course Erin Hills yielding to scores not typical of a US Open, Thomas couldn't hold the lead for more than an hour as unheralded Englishman Tommy Fleetwood topped the leaderboard at 12 under with three holes to play.

Harman, bidding to become the first left-hander to win a U.S. Open, is a victor on the PGA Tour this year while Thomas is the world number 13, a three-time victor this season and a member of the exclusive "59" club after breaking 60 at the Sony Open this year.

Thomas made it look easy.

"It's similar-type stuff - low round and history stuff, " Thomas said.

"Today I felt really good, played really well". "I don't hit it as far as some, but I hit the first hole in two shots today, so I hit it far enough".

Storms buffeted southeastern Wisconsin Friday night into Saturday morning, the lightening crackled west of Milwaukee and from the city sounded like fireworks. His only birdies came on the front nine, on Nos.

Rory McIlroy and Jason Day are trying to make up ground at the U.S. Open - not on the leader, but on the cut line. "He's a good role model for English golf".

"It was obviously an awesome day", Thomas said. He drove the green on the 288-yard, par-4 15th and got down in two.

"I wish he was calling it just to hear what he would have said", replied the 24-year-old. Imagine how good he could have been with a snack. No previous tournament ever had three.

One of them is likely to prevail, and might do so in dramatic fashion.

"Everything I read says that I hit it super short", he said.

Rickie Fowler has some company on top of the U.S. Open leaderboard.


"Yeah, it definitely can help, just because it's similar-type stuff, low round and history and stuff like that". The guys are going to shoot low.

"I think the biggest thing is not getting ahead of yourself".

"I don't know what tomorrow's going to be like".

He finished at 12-under 272, the first player to complete a U.S. Open double digits under par. He shot 81 the next day in a blustery wind. Johnny Miller's came on a Sunday, making him the second of the four to win after hitting the number.

Brian Harman and Justin Thomas will be the...

Fleetwood picked up a victory in Abu Dhabi on the European Tour while Fowler is widely regarded right now as the best golfer never to have won a major.

"I had no idea (I was close to a record) in terms of the relation to par", Thomas was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. It's interesting to see where the USGA has gone with the U.S. Open, being a little more friendly than in years' past.

"Someone has a very good chance of ending up with their first major tomorrow", Fowler said. But he's playing in just his eighth major championship and his first since 2015.

"It was a good save", Fleetwood 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.

It took until this, the 117th staging of the US Open, for a player to post a round of nine under par in this championship.

He'd only managed to shoot 2 under par in the first two rounds at Erin Hills, though. He etched it in the history books with a tour de force performance.

A 94-year-old spectator has died at the U.S. Open.

Former champion Jordan Spieth was among the interested spectators as the US Open headed for a thrilling climax at Erin Hills on Sunday. Maybe Sunday, he'll do not forget to pack a lunch.
