Jordan Spieth finishes US Open on a high note

Share

Thomas' third round nine-under-par 63 eclipsed Miller's eight-under-par 63 to clinch the 1973 US Open by one at Oakmont but, speaking to GolfChannel.com, Miller likened the course set-up to that of a PGA Tour event.

Patrick Reed has joined the 65 club at Erin Hills. Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka appear super-relaxed as they smile their way around the course -and the potentially ruinous meltdown Fleetwood just about fended off on 18 yesterday may stand him in good stead when the pressure rises today.

This won't be a U.S. Open final round where you can focus in on one pairing and expect the victor to be one of those two.

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.

Russian Federation says it 'may have killed' ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
As the leader of ISIS , which has seized and lost swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria , he earned a reputation for brutality. Al-Hashimi said the other IS leader, al-Beljiki, was unlikely to have been in Syria at the time of the attack.

"I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", the 23-year-old said. "I know I'm going to be nervous, I just need to harness that as best I can".

Si Woo Kim (-9): Kim has been just grinding out great scores while the attention has been on everyone else.

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. And then he made a 27 footer on 17 before eagling the history-making 18th hole.

"I played a lot", a smiling Harman said. And with no previous major champion within shouting distance of the lead (none within eight shots), Thomas has a golden opportunity to win his first. "But, obviously, I enjoyed going low". When I get it going, I don't fear, like I used to, kind of stalling. The tournament received $1 million boosts in 2014 (from $8 million to $9 million) and 2015 ($10 million). He showed spunk after holding off Johnson at Wells Fargo, a victory that secured him a spot at Erin Hills. She went from a three-shot lead to one shot behind, and eventually lost to So Yeon Ryu in the playoff.

White House: Trump 'has no intention' to fire Mueller
Trump was apparently bothered by reports from conservative outlets like Breitbart News linking Mueller to Comey. Rosenstein may be asked to address the issue when he speaks at a Senate subcommittee hearing Tuesday morning .

He was at 8 under at the end of the day, and never got back to double digits. That was the kind of day it was and the kind of Open it is, as scores are unprecedentedly low and everyone seems fearless.

Record scoring and constant movement at the top of the leaderboard is usually exactly what fans want from a golf tournament. And if his hot pink trousers were not enough, he did it in style.

He carded nine birdies and two bogeys before hitting his second shot to six feet on the par-5 18th and tapped in for eagle to become the 29th golfer to shoot 63 at the majors. And he missed an eminently makeable eagle putt after driving the green on the par-four 15th.

After days of being humbled, Erin Hills turned nasty for the U.S. Open's final round as heavy winds pummeled the links-style layout, adding an intriguing wrinkle to the year's second major. He still built a six-shot lead through 36 holes, despite hitting his tee shot into the ocean on the 18th hole and salvaging bogey. So long as players stay out of the fescue, Erin Hills can be beaten in this condition. On typical U.S. Open greens, that would have run all the way off the back of the green.

'Significant progress' made in talks between Foster & May
Sinn Fein have dismissed speculation they would take their seats in Westminster to help Labour block Theresa May's Queen's Speech. Many people in Northern Ireland - where the DUP is blocking a change in the law - might respectfully disagree.

"It's so nice to be playing on my anniversary that we're moving our anniversary officially this year to Tuesday", Cink said. "When you give us soft greens, good greens and not much wind, you know there are going to be some good scores".
