Wind howling as final round at Erin Hills gets under way

"Usually when you shoot even in a U.S. Open and you're one off the lead, you're not six down afterward", J.B. Holmes said.

Scheffler plays for the University of Texas, and Champ plays for Texas A&M.

Thomas joins Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, Johnny Miller and Vijay Singh as players to fire 63s at a U.S. Open.

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.

Thomas poured in the eagle to become the 29th player with a 63 in a major championship.

Excellent course conditions helped keep scores low Saturday, including a record-setting 63 from Justin Thomas, as several golfers pushed into the top 10 with good performances in Round 3.

This is his third appearance at the US Open, and the first time he has made the cut.

He hit a bit of a rough patch in 2016, but he's since come through it.

Harman was on top at 12 under coming into the day.

Spieth says he asked Ellie on Saturday night what she wanted him to do in the final round of the U.S. Open. "That fifth shot on the 18th was the best shot all day". He ends his weekend at Erin Hills at 1 over.

The lead, however, belonged to Brian Harman. He shot 81 the next day in a blustery wind.

"Taking nothing away from nine-under par", Miller told the Golf Channel.

There's a few unfamiliar names towards the top of the 2017 U.S. Open leaderboard. Their minds are going to wander, to drift off to thinking about what happens if I win the US Open. It features a silhouette of Palmer in mid-stride, tossing his visor in the air. Woods made four birdies against no bogeys in the final round for a 67 and a 15-shot victory.


"Yeah, 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", he said.

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.

However, the world number 50 - featuring in his first major since 2015 - has played beautifully throughout the week, with accuracy off the tee a significant factor in his success. The pair sit one shot adrift of leader Brian Harman.

With the US Open weather looking like it could have winds of up to 16 miles per hour and with gusts of around 25mph - scoring should be a little trickier in the final round.

Kite shot even-par 72 in gusty winds in 1992 at Pebble Beach, winning by two strokes over Jeff Sluman.

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

"I think that can't be underestimated having your friend with you, whether you're in leading the U.S. Open or whatever else", Fleetwood said.

The round saw him surge up the leaderboard in a tie for second alongside compatriot Brooks Koepka and England's Tommy Fleetwood on -11.

Wind was supposed to be one of the main defenses at Erin Hills, which is the longest U.S. Open course in history but also has the widest fairways the tournament has seen.

The wind is gusting up to 25 miles per hour with the forecast calling for it to go as high as 30 miles per hour in the afternoon when the leaders tee off.

The course had been softened by rain earlier in the week, and it finally played the way the USGA wanted in the final round.

Koepka made three birdies over his last seven holes for a 68.
