Wisconsinite Steve Stricker in position for weekend berth at Erin Hills

Ben Pena | 18 June, 2017, 13:25

The boyish 24-year-old shot a first-round 59 at the Sony Open in Hawaii to become the youngest among the eight players who have broken 60 on the PGA Tour.

Thomas will begin the final round one shot behind leader?

Harman, bidding to become the first left-hander to win a U.S. Open, is a victor on the PGA Tour this year while Thomas is the world number 13, a three-time victor this season and a member of the exclusive "59" club after breaking 60 at the Sony Open this year. "It will be a pleasure to go out on a Sunday trying to win a major".

"It's going to be a really cool day for someone", Fowler said. "I got in a hazard on one".

"I was upset with the score I had made, but it had, in no way, any effect on my attitude or how I was going to then approach the rest of the round or the next shot".

The last six majors have crowned first-time champions and that trend looks poised to continue at Erin Hills where you have to look way down the leaderboard to 19th before finding a major victor in U.S. Masters champion Sergio Garcia of Spain. He was a member of the Tide's 2012 National Champion team.

At this point, nobody should care. But Erin Hills, this 11-year-old layout with which the game is still coming to terms, was a more demanding test than on Thursday.

An updated leaderboard can be found at U.S.

Tailored bereavement support for families of the victims, those missing or people affected by the tragedy will also be provided. The identification of the victims is proving very hard - which experts attribute to the extreme heat of the fire.

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

The U.S. Open should wrap up on Sunday - unless there's a tie. "Doing it all night is not going to help and not make any difference, let's just concentrate on each day as it comes", he said. There were five after Saturday's round.

Thomas mixed nine birdies and two bogeys before hitting his second shot to six feet on the par-five 18th hole and tapped in for eagle to record the lowest round (9-under) in relation to par in US Open history.

"That was big", Fowler said. "I told my caddy after we made that bogey [at the par-3 13th] we had some scoring opportunities coming up". You couldn't press it too much. This is only his second U.S. Open, finishing 27th in 2015.

Koepka had the lead until he turned a birdie chance into a bogey on the par-5 first hole after making the turn.

With little wind, no rain, and greens that Fox Sports analyst Paul Azinger called the best he's ever seen, the world's best golfers tore up the course leading to the lowest cut line in U.S. Open history at +1. "But you still have to golf your ball out there". He has felt this kind of pressure before.

"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.
