Spieth stabilizes in final round at US Open

Brian Harman (-12) enters Sunday in the lead, followed by Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood at -11.

After days of being humbled, Erin Hills turned nasty for the U.S. Open's final round as heavy winds pummeled the links-style layout, adding an intriguing wrinkle to the year's second major. Harman has previous for this kind of thing; last month at the Wells Fargo Championship he prevented Dustin Johnson from winning a fourth tournament in a row.

Action concludes on Sunday evening, with another first-time major victor likely to be crowned.

Henrik Stenson. Alex Noren. If those players simply shoot par Sunday, and soft conditions seem likely again, that obliterates the combined par-smashing of every U.S. Open since 1895.

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.

The Florida native has more good finishes in the majors than any of the other four. "We're definitely in good position for tomorrow".

In fact, that's 15 more than the top 18 players on the leaderboard going into the weekend. Only a half-dozen of them have even experienced Sunday contention in golf's biggest events.

"I've never done this before", Fleetwood said.

Thomas equalled the lowest score in major championship history with a stunning 63 on Saturday, a nine-under-par round which was also the lowest in relation to par in a US Open, eclipsing the eight-under 63 shot by Johnny Miller to win at Oakmont in 1973.

Miller, though impressed by Thomas, was not exactly in awe. There have been no reports yet of anyone getting sick.

Putting while not facing the hole ✅.

A flawless tee-shot left him in the centre of the fairway and he then ripped his second some 300 yards to leave himself with an eight-foot putt to clinch the lowest to par score in the history of the US Open.

Johnson was hitting it so well that he appeared to be safe even when he was on the cut line. The world No. 13 stuffed his 310-yard approach shot to within 8 feet on the par-5 that stretches well beyond 600 yards.

The 20-year-old Scheffler birdied No. 18 to finish off a 1-over 73. "I think they did a fantastic job", Spieth said. "I hope the moment will come as soon as possible". I just struggled on the greens.

Whether this has been a good USA open so far seems to be in the eye of the beholder. McIlroy came to life when it was far too late. He missed the cut at last year's PGA and withdrew from this year's Masters after falling down a staircase.

That was a 10-shot improvement on his second round and left the 26-year-old on eight under par as he seeks to turn his Ryder Cup heroics into individual success. Billy Horschel was tied for the 36-hole lead at Merion.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said.

"I was teeing off and I looked up and saw it on fire, and I felt sick to my stomach", Jamie Lovemark said. "It's sometimes nice being out front because you can afford to make a mistake". He got that up-and-down for a bogey and a 68.

His wavy brown hair and light beard would make him fit right in on the North Shore of Oahu, although he's from Southport, England.

"It was obviously an awesome day". "Yeah, it was a bit of a roller coaster".

He finished at 12-under 272, the first player to complete a U.S. Open double digits under par.
