Thomas shoots 63, trails Harman by 1 at US Open

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:03

And he succeeded as US Open champion his good friend Dustin Johnson, who missed the cut at Erin Hills but gave him a pep talk on the phone after Saturday's third round.

Tommy 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. "You can have a really fast start and just get up the leaderboard, and you never know what can happen".

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.

Overnight leader Harman appeared nervous early on but rescued pars on the opening two holes before reclaiming a share of the lead thanks to a 29-foot birdie putt on the third.

LI Haotong made a small piece of history by surviving the halfway cut at the US Open, but closed out a frustrating third round with a quadruple-bogey at the par-5 18th on Saturday.

Reed said he is in a better position to finish out the U.S. Open this year than previous majors because he has changed his mental approach.

Florida native Koepka becomes the seventh consecutive first-time major victor, a run started by Jason Day at the 2015 US PGA Championship.

Harman was hoping to become the fourth player in succession to convert a 54-hole lead into victory after Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker in the last two majors of 2016 and Sergio Garcia in April's Masters.

He almost gave them a final few holes to remember in the third round.


Thomas, who was tied for the lead at the time at 9-under, made a decision to go for the green from a little over 300 yards out.

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.

STRICKER'S DAY: Home-state favorite Steve Stricker keeps feeling the love from U.S. Open fans.

The American Ryder Cup star then bagged a trio of birdies on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes to finish at eight under. Palmer shot a 65 after going into the final round trailing by seven shots.

Si Woo Kim trails Harman by three strokes as he prepares to tee off Sunday, and he has been consistent with rounds of 69, 70 and 68 during the first three rounds of the tournament.

The world's fifth-ranked player is well off the lead. I think that was the difference.

Justin Thomas, coming off his record-tying 63, and Tommy Fleetwood were starting to fade.

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