Kite looks back on windy final round at Pebble

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 02:19

In addition to being the first to register nine-under score, Thomas also became just the fifth man in the history of the US Open to score 63. About all that save Erin Hills from another onslaught was a forecast for the strongest wind of the week. Everyone near the top had it going. Thomas capped off his record day on the 667-yard 18th hole at Erin Hills with the prettiest 3-wood he ever hit, stopping 8 feet away on a green where some players struggled to land a wedge.

Going into Sunday five players had carded rounds of seven-under or less, the most ever in the U.S. Open's 117-year history while Canadian Adam Hadwin fired off six consecutive birdies in Thursday's opening round to equal another mark.

We're all set for a quality, stacked final round on Sunday at the U.S. Open, but we won't have a single major victor in contention.

It is fair to say few would have anticipated Brian Harman being in pole position at the start of the final day, leading by one shot at 12 under par. "But good shots will still prevail, if you hit them".

The lead, however, belonged to Brian Harman.

Fleetwood, who was hoping to follow in the footsteps of 1970 victor Tony Jacklin and 2013 champion Justin Rose, held a share of second place on 11 under par alongside Americans Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas.

He rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 5 from the edge of the green that broke so severely that he stood with his toes facing the hole and rapped the ball toward his left foot.


The top echelons of the leaderboard are dominated by a number of Americans, including four of the current top five, as the home golfers excel at Erin Hills.

The previous lowest score in relation to par was the eight-under 63 shot by Johnny Miller in the final round of the 1973 Open. He tees off later Sunday.

Whoever emerged victorious would definitely have earned it given the conditions which were reminiscent of the final round of the 1992 US Open at Pebble Beach. "I feel like my game has been good enough to compete in the majors this year", Thomas said. The final-round average was 77.2, and 20 players shot in the 80s. Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood are tied for second, one shot back.

The course had been softened by rain earlier in the week, and it finally played the way the USGA wanted in the final round.

England's Fleetwood had led until the final hole, when only his third bogey of the week meant he relinquished the lead to 30-year-old Harman, leaving himself tied with Koepka and Thomas. Spieth made birdies on the first two holes, both of which are playing downwind.

The last six majors have produced six first-time champions and that trend looks set to continue with the leaderboard dominated by mostly unheralded names.
