But Steve Stricker, Wisconsin's most well-known golfer besides former two-time U.S. Open champ Andy North, played in the twosome ahead of Summerhays.

Rickie Fowler set a record on Thursday with a seven-under-par round and I think he's awesome for the younger set but he's not good enough to be sharing records with Jack.

And yet, Thomas won't even walk to the first tee box Sunday with the lead. Hideki Matsuyama and Brian Harman are tied for second at 12 under, followed by Tommy Fleetwood another stroke back.

This isn't like most Opens.

Jordan Spieth has described Erin Hills as an "awesome golf course" after finishing his US Open campaign with a three-under 69.

Walking to the 18th green, Justin Thomas knew he had a chance for history. It led to an eagle to close out his 63. There will probably be more nerves, more excitement, there is a lot of golf to be played here.

Miller, who posted his 63 in the final round of the '73 Open on a par-71 course, was unimpressed that Thomas achieved his (a U.S. Open scoring record relative to par) on a par-72 track that offered players wide fairways and soft conditions. And he wasn't through. 8 and 13). He stands alone in fifth place, two shots behind leader Brian Harman and one behind three other players. And then Morgan came undone.

One man who would appear to have no issue with confidence is Patrick Reed and the boisterous 26-year-old will begin the final round four behind Harman after a wonderful 65 on Saturday.

Morgan shot 77 and, remarkably, still had the lead at 4-under 212.

On a morning when winds deviated between 10 and 15 miles an hour, and some tricky pin placements added to the challenge on approach shots, Casey's powers of recovery enabled him to get into position to challenge over the weekend.

Snedeker has never won a major, either, though he has been through the emotional ringer at Augusta National and Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He was six shots back at the turn.

Thomas, Fleetwood and Koepka ended the day a solitary shot off the pace, while Rickie Fowler and Kim Si-woo were firmly in contention at 10 and nine under respectively. No one had a chance. There were five players in double digits Saturday at Erin Hills. It promises a great finish to an outstanding tournament on Father's Day.

The final round of the 117th U.S. And he kept right on going early in the third round, rolling in a 25-foot eagle putt on the par-5 fourth hole to reach 11-under par.

Fowler, sharing a house with Thomas this week, was being left behind until he ran off three straight birdies and shot 68. Jason Day and Rory McIlroy also missed the cut, and this marked the first time the top three players in the world have all missed the cut in a major. I really like these two guys, and they're excellent players, but they're not going to win this U.S. Open.
