Logjam At Top of US Open Leaderboard After Round 2

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:43

Thomas, the 29th player to shoot a 63 in a major, finished the day on 11-under-par 205 to trail leader Brian Harman by one stroke heading into Sunday's final round. "I'd love to have another one of those", Thomas said. "You've seen awesome shots work towards the hole and you've seen shots that aren't so good end up far away, very few and far between do you see anything that resembles unfair, where a great shot that doesn't get rewarded". He also could become the first left-hander to win a U.S. Open. The Wisconsin venue hosted the 2011 U.S. Amateur, where Koepka failed to qualify for the match play portion of the event.

Justin Thomas, coming off a 9-under 63 that matched the major championship scoring record and was the first 9-under round at a U.S. Open, went out in 39 and closed with a 75 to tie for ninth.

Mounting a charge was Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, who posted a six-under 66 that featured eight birdies.

Koepka, who finished at 16-under 272, became the seventh straight first-time victor of a major championship, and it was the first time since 1998-2000 that Americans won their national championship three straight years.

His reaction was subdued, just like his close friend and last year's U.S. Open champion, Dustin Johnson. Atop the leaderboard is Brian Harman, whose 67 took him to 12 under.

The par-four third hole proved the toughest on day three, with a tricky pin position at the back of the green contributing to 20 bogeys, two double bogeys and just two birdies for a scoring average of 4.368.

Winds gusting up to 25mph were making scoring conditions hard and had forced tournament officials to change the pin position on the par-three 13th before play began. Koepka finally took the lead with a 35-foot birdie putt on No. 8. McIlroy and Tiger Woods (12 under at Pebble Beach in 2000) had been the only players to finish there.


The U.S. Open didn't seem to faze him, and he delivered a variety of big shots that led to his sensational finish. At Erin Hills you barely would have made the cut at 1-over, and if Sunday is anything like the previous three days, someone is going to have to shoot in the low 60s to win, unless Mother Nature decides to rear an angry face.

Scottie Scheffler is the low amateur for this year's U.S. Open.

Spieth has never played at Royal Birkdale, the course that will host The Open Championship for a 10th time beginning July 20. Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood were one shot back.

Stricker birdied three of four holes going into the par-5 18th. Kite says "I don't anticipate this being a bloodletting".

At 10 under is Rickie Fowler (68).

Once again golfers were taking full advantage of a softened Erin Hills layout left defenseless by overnight rain, attacking the pins with gusto.

Of the 24 players on the course early, only two are under par for the day - William McGirt and Jordan Spieth. He rolled a long birdie putt off the sixth green and made bogey, and he dropped two more shots with three-putt bogeys. Fifteen of the top 16 on the leaderboard broke par.
