Birdies, bogeys and the eagle in Justin Thomas' 63

Share

What we didn't know is that this Open would separate so many men from the tournament.

Thomas poured that in to become the 29th player with a 63 in a major championship.

Harman rolled in a six-footer at the ninth and added another at the 11th to get within one, as Fleetwood birdied the 12th and posted a close-range gain at the 14th to move alongside Thomas.

Having five players reach 10-under in a single U.S. Open is rather remarkable considering just six had ever done it in the previous 116 Opens.

Thomas has had a breakout season on the PGA Tour, winning three times before February, including consecutive titles in Hawaii in January.

The low-scoring sets up a wide open final Sunday, with the world's top three ranked players - No.1 Dustin Johnson, No.2 Rory McIlroy and No.3 Jason Day - all missing the cut on Friday.

On Thursday, the hospital reiterated that Scalise will need more operations and will be in the hospital "for some time". Hodgkinson had a history of posting angry messages against Mr Trump and other Republicans on social media.

QUOTEWORTHY: "That means I'm a part of history".

"And out here I'm just thinking a lot about my stroke, stance, stuff you would rather not be thinking about, you'd rather think about line of pace". Tomorrow's going to be fun. "I've felt like my game has been good enough to compete in the majors this year", he said.

And it is another milestone in a remarkable start to 2017 for Thomas.

As young as he is, Thomas said he's very comfortable with his plan to finish this week right. In the Sony Open, he became the seventh player to shoot a sub-60 round with a 59.

The course was set up at 7,845 yards, the longest of any major. "Obviously, today I definitely had something to show for it". "I've just got to keep going". The ovation I got going up 18 (which he bogeyed, by the way) is unbelievable. Or that Mickelson never made it to Erin Hills, opting instead to attend his daughter's high school graduation?

In addition, Comey has said Sessions did not respond when he complained that he did not want to be left alone with Trump again. But Ruddy himself calls it a bad idea, and many, many people reportedly agree - including a host of presidential advisors.

For Justin Thomas, Sunday's U.S. Open final round could be even more historic. It's the best I've struck the ball in a long time.

With so many golfing stalwarts banished, Thomas stepped into the breach with a game as flashy as the pink trousers he wore.

Thomas, decked out in fluorescent pink trousers, was on the move quickly with a birdie-birdie start and had an even hotter finish to his front nine, carding birdies on four-of-five closing holes, including the last three to move to seven-under. Sand wedge over the green.

Except, of course, on the leader board at Erin Hills. There were 32 sub-par rounds, a record for U.S. Open third rounds. Once more, Erin Hills rejected proven greatness like a bad skin graft; after already disposing of the Nos.

"You don't often see that in a U.S. Open", Hadwin said. That was the kind of day it was and the kind of Open it is, as scores are unprecedentedly low and everyone seems fearless.
