At US Open, Justin Thomas sets scoring record

The mighty recovery of Paul Casey puts him in US Open mix

"But it will be a pleasure to go out on a Sunday trying to win a major".

It's no secret that the U.S. Open is created to separate the men from the boys. "And secondly, Erin Hills isn't exactly Oakmont".

In another odd twist this year, the game's three top players - Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day - all missed the cut. Jon Rahm. Justin Rose.

LAVNER: Patrick Reed. Coming off a 65, playing the tournament that he covets most, Captain America should have plenty of good vibes entering the final round.

Still, as soft and windless as the new course has been, no one did as historically well as Thomas did.

On the Par-4 fifth hole, Thomas was just off the green.

Of them all, Fleetwood - who bogeyed the last - will feel as if he should at least have finished alongside Harman.

After dropping three shots in his opening six holes, Matt Fitzpatrick holed five birdies in eight holes to post a two-under 70 to climb to three under. I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes.

Home players occupy 12 of the top 16 places on the leaderboard and with six shots separating them, any one could still win on Sunday.

"You always can take that fire from Ryder Cup and use it in other events", Reed said.

Stephen Brennwald, an Alexandria lawyer, also saw Hodgkinson at the YMCA and said he often seemed to be staring into space. President, for being an a** hole you are Truly the Biggest A** Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office".

Marc Leishman has surged up the leaderboard with a hot front nine during the third round of the US Open on Saturday.

HOGGARD: Brooks Koepka. Even with winds that are forecast to reach 15 miles per hour, there's little chance the teeth will return to Erin Hills in time for the final round. The USGA is providing complimentary bottled water the rest of the week. He had 310 yards to the hole when he hit 3-wood that could have led to big trouble if he went too far long or left. It was never that way in the U.S. Open.

Johnson was hitting it so well that he appeared to be safe even when he was on the cut line.

Then he had a run of three birdies. Casey shot a 3-over 75 on Saturday to drop to eight shots back behind Harman. "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did".

"This is my first time in contention in a major, so whatever happens I'll be doing my best and seeing how well I can finish".

When Fleetwood was asked if he planned to talk to 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose, a fellow Englishman, before the final round, Fleetwood smiled and said he'd wait for Rose's text. He missed a short birdie putt on 18.

The round was littered with some fantastic approach shots and long putts as Thomas took advantage of overnight rains to move to 11-under, one shot off the lead by Brian Harman.

But the record-setting performance has him on the verge of his first major championship if he is able to build off the momentum he established in Saturday's third round.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

What would winning the U.S. Open do for him? He drove the green on the 288-yard, par-4 15th and got down in two. I got off to a pretty good start, which I really haven't done yet, so that was nice. "Yeah, it was a bit of a roller coaster. I'm like, 'Let's get to 8, let's get to 9, ' whatever it is".
