Koepka in control and with a 1-shot lead at US Open

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:14

Fowler was among those who wouldn't mind seeing the conditions toughen up for the final 18 holes. The ball slid back down the sandy slope until it came to a rest near his footprints. This is the first time in 25 years that the U.S. Open has played as a par 72.

"I mean there's probably not that much that's that interesting (laughter) to be honest". "Searching for it, but just haven't quite finished out a major with the speed".

South Korea's Kim will lead the Asian quest for a major on Sunday after Hideki Matsuyama was unable to build on his second round 65. He is the biggest hitter among them, averaging 307.6 yards on his drives, and that ranks fifth on the PGA Tour.

FORGIVING CONDITIONS The soft, forgiving conditions created opportunity for major movement up the leaderboard for those players willing to take it.

He said he felt like he was back on the upswing at the Colonial. I still remember trying to help you choke down what they laughingly called "Sloppy Joes" while the nursing home radio playing such Old Folks Home hits as "Hot Legs", "Super Freak" and "Girls Girls Girls" over the P.A. system. The guys are going to shoot low. "I get a lot of experience in the last couple of days", Li added.

The birdies started piling up as the round drew to a close. Fleetwood was poised to take the lead until his pitch to the 18th wasn't strong enough and his next shot went beyond the flag and down the slope some 70 feet away.

"When you look at the USGA championships, by and large just about any way you look at, they're the most important championships not only in the US but in the world", Mike Davis, USGA executive director/CEO, said earlier this year.

Of course, Thomas was the story of Saturday's third round, vaulting himself into contention with a historic, 9-under-par 63 that displaced Johnny Miller from the top of the U.S. Open's single-round scoring record. He went from a tie for second at the beginning of the day to a tie for sixth.

The week ended with 31 players under par, breaking the U.S. Open record of 28 players at Medinah in 1990. He opened with a pair of tap-in birdies and putted for birdie on every hole but the par-3 13th. Koepka birdied his first two holes and made five on the day against just one bogey in a closing 4-under 68. At that point, he was leading by seven shots.


"It's going to be a really cool day for someone tomorrow", the world number nine said.

Stricker, who turned 50 this year, seems to be rejuvenated on the course.

"It looks like a PGA Tour event course setup", he said.

"I was glad to hang in there, especially that last group", said Harman, who is playing his first weekend at a US Open in three attempts. There were 133 sub-par rounds, nine more than the previous record in that 1990 U.S. Open.

His first four holes went this way: double bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey. That's nothing, you should get a load of England's Tommy Fleetwood. "It's hard not to struggle with your focus a little bit", Cink said.

"Stabilized is a good word for it". "You need to play smart".

A three-time victor on the PGA Tour this season, Thomas also joined the exclusive "59" club by breaking 60 at the Sony Open, but he may have saved his best for Father's Day weekend and his quest for his first major crown.

The race for low amateur at the U.S. Open is down to Cameron Champ's last two holes.

"I'm looking forward to my shot at it". It also happens to be his 24th wedding anniversary with his wife, Lisa. "And we talked about that and said the purses really should reflect that".
