Justin Thomas ties US Open Tournament record with 63 in third round

Stricker, who recently turned 50, admitted the extreme length of the course - it played at 7,839 yards Friday - limits his opportunities to make birdies and therefore gain much momentum.

Harman and Fleetwood began Saturday's third round as part of a four-way tie for the lead with Paul Casey and Koepka.

"Someone has a very good chance of ending up with their first major tomorrow", Fowler said.

Harman, who is hoping to become the first lefthander to win the U.S. Open, must have felt overlooked given Thomas' accomplishment. "I'm going to be nervous, but it's a good nervous".

So yeah, outside of Fowler, we're left with a lack of star power, and the top of the leaderboard is completely devoid of anyone who's actually won a major.

In fact, the players exiting were the most noteworthy. "It's still Saturday - 36 holes is a very long time in a U.S. An 11-year-old golf course shaped from Wisconsin pastureland was sure to bring something different to the U.S.

"You could keep knocking it back and forth over that green", said Fleetwood, "staring seven or eight in the face".

Some of those who came out to the U.S. Open said they wanted to experience the tournament and check out the attractive Erin Hills Gold Course.

Except, of course, on the leaderboard at Erin Hills.

A commercial blimp crashed to the ground and caught fire just outside the course Thursday, about the time the county health department was analyzing samples that confirmed evidence of the E. coli bacteria in water at a hydration station near the 12th hole.

NOTEWORTHY: A 94-year-old man stopped breathing while in a grandstand on the sixth hole and died of what officials said appeared to be natural causes. More important, he was happy with how he played Friday and remained optimistic that he could carry that over to the weekend.

Khan also confirmed that checks would also be carried out on other similar tower blocks to ensure they were not at risk. The Times reported that contractors are thought to have used panels with a polyethylene core for the Grenfell project.

Greg Norman and Vijay Singh are the only golfers to record two rounds of 63 in the majors.

Johnson also missed the cut at the Memorial, so this was the first time since 2013 (Pebble Beach, Riviera) that he has missed the cut in consecutive events. But then, in an effort to reach the next level, Fleetwood changed instructors and went down the wrong path. "It was a really good round of golf and I hardly missed a shot".

"He's not afraid. He never was", Mike said, after he joked that he and his wife had "bribed" their way into the stands on No. 18 to watch their son chase history. I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did. It's just been trying to figure it out on and around the greens. On typical U.S. Open greens, that would have run all the way off the back of the green. McIlroy came to life when it was far too late.

Justin Rose, Davis Love IV, Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson and Graeme McDowell will not be in contention for the 117th US Open title.

Eight of the top 12 players in the world won't be around for the weekend at Erin Hills, leaving a tournament as open as the land on which it was built. "We're in a good spot". I got out of position, but it's the attitude, it's the grit that matters at the end of the week. There never have been nine straight Opens without a playoff. The Englishman shot a one-under 71 but had to fight back from two bogeys and a triple bogey in his first six holes.
