Thomas shoots 63; breaks US Open record

But Thomas' lead, which sat at two shots after he eagled 18, lasted only temporarily as Fleetwood and Harman each birdied Nos.

Rickie Fowler is 1 under through four holes and tied for third with Tommy Fleetwood at 11 under. "I've pictured winning the U.S. Open a lot of times before". Out of all the accursed and somewhat less-accursed scorecards of all the grinding since they began this thing in Newport, R.I., in 1895, the card Justin Thomas signed Saturday isn't the best.

This belies a fundamental misunderstanding of what the USGA is doing at Erin Hills, where wide fairways are indeed a bit more forgiving than incredibly penal rough.

During his impressive, 11th-hour quest to qualify for the U.S. Open, Stricker said repeatedly that he can still play golf at a high enough level to compete on the PGA Tour.

The American Ryder Cup star then bagged a trio of birdies on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes to finish at eight under.

Oosthuizen ran off four birdies on the front nine and made the turn at 4-under par, leaving him only three shots behind. Two down, 14 to go.

Former US Open winners Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer were big names who collapsed. That's the lowest differential after 36 holes in the U.S. Open, mainly because until 2012, everyone within 10 shots of the lead made the cut at the U.S. Open. He also could become the first left-hander to win a U.S. Open. Going into the final round, 42 players were still under par.

No, Erin Hills might not be your typical US Open. Results are not what will make this a great week at Erin Hills for the 50-year-old Stricker.

And yet, Thomas won't even walk to the first tee box Sunday with the lead.

They also argued that Castile had smoked marijuana before the traffic stop and was stoned, which influenced his actions. Yanez testified Friday that he meant that he didn't know where the gun was "up until I saw it in his right thigh area".

However, neither Thomas and Fowler aren't the leader heading into Sunday's final round.

NOTES: Patrick Reed, who shot a 65 on Saturday, wore a red, white and blue ensemble that included the blue trousers he wore during the 2016 Ryder Cup, when the United States captured its first title since 2008.

Leader Brian Harman waves to the gallery at the 18th. He tees off later on Sunday. Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood were one each shot behind.

His 13-foot putt for birdie at the par-5 seventh moved him to 3 under for the day and 4 under for the tournament.

It's reasonable to assert that Thomas' round, because of it's incredible displays of explosiveness, ranks in the upper third among 63s in majors. "Obviously I have no idea what tomorrow holds, but I'm more motivated by the way that I'm striking the ball".

What's shaping up as most expensive House race in USA election history gets down to final days in Georgia. The final-round average was 77.2, and 20 players shot in the 80s. I've just got to keep going.

"I told Jimmy walking up there once I found out we had a putt, I said let's try to become a part of history here". I was wrong. Just as Brian Harman would prefer.

But birdies will be harder to come by on Sunday with winds gusting from 25-30 miles per hour (40-48 kph), bending flag sticks and moving balls over hardening greens.

"[At] 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", noted Harman, who beat Dustin Johnson to the Wells Fargo Championship title last month but has never finished inside the top 25 at a major. On the 8th, I had a six foot birdie putt, jammed it going uphill, and had to make an six footer coming back for a bogy.
