Justin Thomas makes US Open history

19 June 2017, 02:35 | Sandy Nunez

American Brian Harman, playing in his first major since missing the cut in all four in 2015, was the surprise leader on 12 under, the 30-year-old attempting to become the first left-hander to win the title in a week which saw six-time runner-up Phil Mickelson opt to attend his daughter's high-school graduation rather than compete.

Thomas soared up the leaderboard from 22nd, and all it took was a 9-under 63, the lowest round to par in a major long known as the toughest test in golf. It's interesting to see where the USGA has gone with the U.S. Open, being a little more friendly than in years' past.

Harman, bidding to become the first left-hander to win a U.S. Open, is a victor on the PGA Tour this year while Thomas is the world number 13, a three-time victor this season and a member of the exclusive "59" club after breaking 60 at the Sony Open this year. "I may not be leading the tournament by the time I tee-off".

Thomas had 300 yards to the hole for his second shot at the 18th. "But I'm looking forward to getting the job done". For me, I'm going to be super nervous. I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes.

The U.S. Open didn't seem to faze him, and he delivered a variety of big shots that led to his sensational finish.

"I'm looking forward to my shot at it, I know it's not going to be an easy day, for sure", Fowler said.

Spieth says he asked Ellie on Saturday night what she wanted him to do in the final round of the U.S. Open. He started the day with a share of the lead and ended up eight shots back.

Ohio Man Suspected In Five Homicides — George Brinkman
The suspect in a triple homicide in northern OH is actually believed to have killed a total of five people in a 24-hour period. Sheriff Maier said Rogell John's son checked on his father on Monday when he did not show up to work at their family business.


Paul Casey carded a triple bogey for the second day running but unlike on day two, was unable to bounce back with five birdies in succession.

An accurate three-wood off the 18th tee was followed by a dazzling approach from 299 yards with the same club, before the world number 13 rolled in an eight-foot eagle putt to make history.

American Justin Thomas equalled the lowest score in major championship history yesterday - shooting nine-under. It just was trying to take advantage of the opportunities I had and when it was a tougher hole or tougher pin, just come take my medicine or make a par.

But the work is not done.

Of the five other players who shot a 63 in the third round at a major, none went on to win. Thirty-two golfers shot under-par on Saturday, presenting a Round 4 where none of the top-16 golfers have won a major championship. He's still in very good position and could be one good round from winning his first major.

He began the day with a birdie, and although he dropped a shot on the 4th, Harman responded with a gain at the next to put himself back in to contention.
