Arnold Palmer's 1960 US Open win honored at Erin

Arnold Palmer's 1960 US Open win honored at Erin

It was at that time-approximately 4:17 local-that Justin Thomas, the man in the pink trousers, began to make U.S. Open history.

En route to registering nine birdies, one eagle and two bogeys, the American hit some truly remarkable shots, and the most remarkable of all appears to have been his birdie putt on the fifth hole.

Fleetwood carded a third round of 68 at Erin Hills to finish alongside Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas on 11 under par, a shot behind surprise leader Brian Harman. Or will this U.S. Open revert back to previous ones, in which players simply hang on for dear life, par becoming a satisfying - and usually effective - score on each hole?

Fleetwood, who was hoping to follow in the footsteps of 1970 victor Tony Jacklin and 2013 champion Justin Rose, held a share of second place on 11 under par alongside Americans Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas. "As long as it's a good tournament, it's good for the U.S. Open and the USGA".

Harman and Fleetwood began Saturday's third round as part of a four-way tie for the lead with Paul Casey and Koepka. "(There's) no reason to answer that", said Thomas, who is now ranked 13th in the world. "This went totally against the tradition of the U.S. Open". He's one shot back of the lead shared by four golfers who tee off later Saturday.

Thomas is 9 under ... and that's just for the last four holes.

InfoWars' Alex Jones Releases Clips Ahead of Megyn Kelly Interview
Jones has said he believed it will be a "fraud", and said he would release an unedited version of the interview that he recorded. However, in his calls with Kelly, he said, "In hindsight, I think it probably did happen". "Tune in Sunday", the statement said.

Tommy Fleetwood will try to block out thoughts of the "life-changing" effect of becoming the second English victor in five years in Sunday's final round of the US Open.

The Victorian shot a disappointing even-par 72 to stay at four under, sharing 17th.

Erin Hills' architects designed the course for the possibility of a back-nine sprint. Not everyone can take advantage.

With the entire field separated by just eight shots after the cut fell at one over, 2015 victor Jordan Spieth had hoped to get himself into contention but struggled to a 76.

He then drilled a 300-yard second shot to around eight feet before rolling in his eagle putt to roars from the galleries at the Erin Hills Course in Wisconsin.

Notes: Patrick Reed, who shot a 65 on Saturday, wore a red, white and blue ensemble that included the blue trousers he wore during the 2016 Ryder Cup, when the United States captured its first title since 2008.

Scalise upgraded to 'serious' condition, able to speak to family
Jeff Duncan of SC said he had just left the practice and encountered the apparent gunman in the parking lot before the shooting . Cedric Richmond, D-La., said he had asked Ryan about increasing budgets for members' offices so they can pay for more security.

Not bad for a guy who made the cut on the number. He birdied three of them on Saturday.

The U.S. Open is wide open going into the weekend.

Fowler fell away badly after starting the final round of this year's Masters just one off the pace and belief will surely be key for a player who has regularly contended in majors without taking the prize. That made Saturday's score even more eye-opening. The final-round average was 77.2, and 20 players shot in the 80s.

"[At] 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", noted Harman, who beat Dustin Johnson to the Wells Fargo Championship title last month but has never finished inside the top 25 at a major.

Now consider that the largest 36-hole comeback in U.S. Open history was 11 shots by Lou Graham in 1975.
