Fowler back in the thick of it at US Open

19 June 2017, 02:04 | Sandy Nunez

Harman, who is playing his first major since missing the cut in all four in 2015, fired six birdies and one bogey in a 67 to claim pole position in his bid to become the first left-handed victor of the US Open.

Thomas leads the U.S. Open after shooting a 63 in the third round, matching the major record for low score. His score in relation to par - 9 under - was a U.S. Open record, and he finished the day at 11 under.

Oosthuizen, whose sole major title to date came at St Andrews in 2010, birdied the first, fourth, seventh and eighth to move to four under par, while 2015 victor Spieth had covered his first 11 holes in level par.

Fleetwood and Harman still had most of their back nines to play as Thomas relaxed in the clubhouse and reflected on his record round.

This isn't like most Opens.

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

Of the five other players who shot a 63 in the third round at a major, none went on to win.

World No.9 Rickie Fowler, who held the halfway lead, earned solo fifth with a 68, with Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim a shot back alone in sixth after also carding a 68. "It's sometimes nice being out front because you can afford to make a mistake". It's the first 63 at the U.S. Open since Vijay Singh in 2003 at Olympia Fields and the fifth overall in tournament history. And he wasn't through.

"It will be exciting", said Spieth, who has spent the annual Spring Break holiday with Thomas and Fowler for the last two years. Palmer shot a 65 after going into the final round trailing by seven shots. And then Morgan came undone.

Morgan shot 77 and, remarkably, still had the lead at 4-under 212.

Mark Wahlberg will lead the star-studded red carpet at the United Kingdom premiere of Transformers: The Last Knight tonight. The 52-year old director admitted that the movies in the franchise are "massive movies" that "take a lot out of you".


Jordan Spieth hit probably one of the best tee shots he has made all weekend at the U.S. Open.

None has won a major championship yet.

As dominant as Woods was, he never reached 10-under par until the final round. They each hit their first shot into the rough. He was 10 under, only two shots behind.

They fearlessly attacked the pins and nobody was more ruthless than Thomas, who ripped apart the links-style layout carding nine birdies and two bogeys before capping his record-smashing effort by coolly rolling in an eight-foot putt for eagle at the par-five 18th. Casey's third round of 75 dropped him from a tie for the lead to joint 17th. Going into the final round, 42 players were still under par. What dropped him under double digits were two bogeys that didn't really matter.

A commercial blimp crashed to the ground and caught fire just outside the course Thursday, about the time the county health department was analyzing samples that confirmed evidence of the E. coli bacteria in water at a hydration station near the 12th hole.

The tournament was such a slog that it didn't finish 72 holes until Monday.

I want that U.S. Open back. And then he made birdie on the next hole.

The little lefty from Georgia has a chance to make a little history at Erin Hills.

On Wednesday, you might have gotten odds of 1,000,000-to-1 on that at any U.S. Open, especially since this is the longest course, at 7,741 yards, that has ever hosted a major. He didn't win, either, closing with a 76 to finish at 2-under 278, two behind Lucas Glover. Nine under is incredible with US Open pressure.
