Stage set for wide open run at US Open title

Acilia Dean | 21 Giugno, 2017, 12:47

The player who turned the U.S. Open into a soap opera of sorts the previous two years won't be around for the weekend this time.

Those three are the outliers, however, as most of the players in the morning wave have hung around par or worse.

The tournament-leading foursome held a one-shot lead over a trio of contenders that includes first-round leader Rickie Fowler.

The left-handed Harman had three birdies, two of them on par threes, and one bogey.

"I've got a busy summer, so I'm excited to play a lot of golf. Part of that is just age and part I'll give credit to Johnny McLaren (his caddie), credit to my wife and my little boy". He punched the third back into the fairway but needed two more to get on the green and two to get down for his second seven.

Here are the best highlights from Day 3 at Erin Hills. I feel like the golf game is there, I feel like I'm playing good.

When asked why there is so little separation among the field, Holmes said: "It's so long". You've still got to make a score. Unthinkably, Thomas shot a nine under on Saturday. I've got four weeks off now. But, despite the considerable length of the course, the game's other big hitters aren't up front with him.

"Golf's hard", Harmon said. This week, so far, you've had to make birdies your friends, even if the course is playing 7,800-plus yards. Some of it nearly takes the bombers out of it.

Brooks Koepka bogeyed the par-3 sixth after hitting his tee shot near the grandstand and fell to 7 under. McIlroy could only take some optimism away from his finish.


"Someone has a very good chance of ending up with their first major tomorrow", Fowler said.

For the first time in a major, the top three players in the world all failed to make the cut.

"It always does that", he said.

"It was a good display, all my own fault, but a good display of what can happen if you get out of position on this golf course, which is what I did on 14". It sets up really well for me, especially if I'm driving it like I did today.

Tommy Fleetwood's brilliant pitch out of the rough on his second shot on the par-4 15th set up a 7-foot birdie putt to drop him to 12 under for sole possession of the lead.

But for the first time since the rankings were introduced in 1986, none of the world's top three made the cut as defending champion Dustin Johnson joined Rory McIlroy and Jason Day in making an early exit. It came after he chunked a chip, then putted his long birdie attempt off the green and down a steep slope behind the hole. He shot 75 and missed the cut. I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did, I just struggled on the greens.

Despite a flurry of late birdies it was not enough to turnaround an erratic round littered with errors and missed opportunities.

Sure, he birdied four of his last six holes to salvage a 71 and finish at 5-over 149.

Justin Rose, Davis Love IV, Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson and Graeme McDowell will not be in contention for the 117th US Open title. More important, he was happy with how he played Friday and remained optimistic that he could carry that over to the weekend.
