Thomas burns up Erin Hills with record score

Paul Casey battles back into contention at US Open but Rory Mc Ilroy misses cut

Westwood had bogeyed the third and fifth before a superb tee shot on the 239-yard sixth - which played as the most hard hole on Thursday - set up a birdie from 18 feet.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson missed the cut, as did Rory McIrloy and Jason Day. Jon Rahm. Justin Rose.

Fowler and Thomas are staying in a house together this week, so they will have plenty to talk about Saturday night as the two young Americans try to burst out of the pack. He set the target early under warm sunshine, and even as the wind tapered in the afternoon, no one could catch him. There have been a pair of 65s, and Brian Harman holds the 54-hole lead at 12-under. He didn't make a birdie the rest of the way and had to settle for a 70.

Yes, the conditions are soft, the same way they were six years ago in suburban Washington D.C., but Harman isn't.

World No.9 Rickie Fowler, who held the halfway lead, earned solo fifth with a 68, with Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim a shot back alone in sixth after also carding a 68.

Fleetwood is playing in only his second US Open but has looked fearless so far.

And his historic Round 3 puts him in a great spot to potentially win his first major.

A native of Savannah, Ga., Harman's best finish at a major was in 2014 when he finished tied for 26th at the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.

It was the first time since the rankings system was launched in April 1989 that the world's top three players have all failed to make the third round of a major.

"It was a good save, it was a good bogey", said Fleetwood.

"The site was just unbelievable", he told Golf Course Industry. The USGA is providing complimentary bottled water the rest of the week. "He's probably more concerned with the golf course than the golf".

Reed shot a 7-under 65 in the third round of the U.S. Open, equaling the low total of the tournament.

Johnson was hitting it so well that he appeared to be safe even when he was on the cut line.

Despite a flurry of late birdies it was not enough to turnaround an erratic round littered with errors and missed opportunities.

One stroke back are a trio of Americans in J.B. Holmes, Jamie Lovemark and first-round leader Fowler. "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did".

"It would change my life, I know that".

Those are words rarely uttered at a U.S. Open.

Stricker couldn't help but break into a wide smile when he made a 30-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to get to 4 under for the day.

His first four holes went this way: double bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said.

Third-round disappointment aside, Cink is still looking forward to playing on Sunday. Thus, he had to be thinking about making the biggest move of the famed Moving Day at the US Open. Still, the man from Liverpool was upbeat: "I can't say how much having one of my best mates (caddie, Ian Finnis) on my bag". "It was a bit of a roller coaster". Kubly, whose company has built or renovated scores of world-class golf courses (including U.S. Open hosts Southern Hills and Torrey Pines) and whose daughter remembers trips to visit with pros-turned-course designers such as Arnold Palmer, Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus, has experience in that area.
