Big Moves Made in Third Round of the US Open

Big Moves Made in Third Round of the US Open

Justin Thomas knew his shot was good the second he hit it. And because of that you can go out and play some great golf, but you have a bunch of guys out there that can play some good golf, as well.

Justin Thomas made history Saturday at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin, shooting a nine-under par 63 in the third round.

Thomas posted the fifth 63 in U.S. Open history, but it is the first to take place in the third round.

Thomas, decked out in shocking fluorescent pink trousers, produced a no less electric performance that featured nine birdies, two bogeys and was capped with a record-smashing eagle at the par-five 18th to complete the best single round in U.S. Open history, in relation to par.

KEY STATISTIC: In 116 U.S. Opens to date, only six players had ever reached 10 under or better.

"It's going to be a really cool day for someone tomorrow", the world number nine said. Kim is three shots back and one ahead of Patrick Reed, Russell Henley and Charley Hoffman.

"You won't get a better day for scoring", Johnson said wistfully during the long walk to sign his card. Fleetwood was just off the green in three, and sent his fourth shot sliding past the hole and down a huge slope before producing what he called his "shot of the day" to get up and down for bogey.

Thomas started his record round with birdies on the first two holes.

"I had no idea (I was close to a record) in terms of the relation to par", Thomas was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

They fearlessly attacked the pins and nobody was more ruthless than Thomas, who ripped apart the links-style layout carding nine birdies and two bogeys before capping his record-smashing effort by coolly rolling in an eight-foot putt for eagle at the par-five 18th. For players like Jordan Spieth (73) and Johnson, it was a matter of not making enough putts.

Three holes before, on the 288-yard, par-4 15th, Thomas had missed a six-foot eagle putt after driving the green with another 3-wood. I then hit a awful wedge shot. It's the scorecard of a remarkable wisp of a 24-year-old Kentuckian from the third round of the U.S. Open, and it's a fresh beacon of hope in the centuries-old struggle between humanity and golf. For me, I'm going to be super nervous.

"I knew I hit it really well", he said. He was 100 feet away for birdie on No. 6 and burned the edge of the cup on that one, except that it ran by some 7 feet and he three-putted for bogey.

"I think since my dad dropped me off at football practice and told me to not be disappointed if I didn't get to play at all".

Despite his heroics at Erin Hills, Thomas did not actually finish the day on top of the leaderboard. It's interesting to see where the USGA has gone with the U.S. Open, being a little more friendly than in years' past.

Harman, who won the Wells Fargo championship last month, continued in his rich vein of form on Saturday, sinking six birdies. "I was just happy that I was the one that was able to take advantage of it today". The cut for the top 60 and ties was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah.
