Arnold Palmer's 1960 US Open win honored at Erin

Share

Sunday, June 18th marked the Final Round of the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills - and the late Arnold Palmer was honored at Erin Hills Golf Course on Father's Day.

Winds blowing up to 25 miles per hour (40 kph) greeted the early starters for the final round on the links-styled layout.

Brian Harman leads at 12 under.

Fleetwood, who was hoping to become the third English victor since 1924 after Tony Jacklin (1970) and Justin Rose (2013), began the day in a tie for second with Thomas and Brooks Koepka, a shot behind surprise leader Brian Harman. While stronger winds made tee-to-green play more hard during the final round, they may have also helped Spieth on the greens where he needed only 29 putts. Rickie Fowler sits at 10 under.

Twins select Rooker again in first round
North Carolina State shortstop Joseph Dunand, nephew of Alex Rodriguez , was selected as a third baseman by the Marlins at No. 51. In Rogers senior year of high school alone, the big young man threw three no-hitters, one of them being a flawless game.

But two-time major victor Jordan Spieth proved a good score was still possible, the 2015 champion carding five birdies and two bogeys in a 69 to finish one over par overall. Spieth, who finished one over par for the tournament, carded five birdies including one at the par-five 18th, and two bogeys.

Harman, bidding to become the first left-hander to win a US 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.

"I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", Spieth 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.

Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Amir help Pakistan win maiden Champions Trophy
Many Indian fans are now tweeting congratulatory messages for the winning team but also showering the Indian team with love. Fakhar and Azhar produced a stand of 128, the first consecutive opening century partnership by Pakistan in 14 years.

Jordan Spieth's 2017 U.S. Open didn't go as he wanted it to. But Thomas is the only one to do it on a par-72 course.

A dizzying day of action could be topped on Sunday with six players within three shots of the lead all eyeing their first major. Greg Norman and Vijay Singh did it twice, for 31 rounds of 63 in total. I think that was the difference.

"I still missed a couple of shorter ones, but everybody probably will today".
