Kite looks back on windy final round at Pebble

18 June 2017

Furyk reached 10-under 200.

Brian Harman opened up a one-shot lead at the 117th US Open in a dramatic third round lit up by a record-equalling 63 from Justin Thomas.

Staying that deep into the red might not prove as easy. "I'll just rely on confidence", said Harman, who won his second PGA Tour event at the Wells Fargo Championship in May.

He steadied his hands and sank the shot to record the lowest score in relation to par in United States Open history.

This isn't like most Opens.

Fire fighting aircraft were being sent from France and Spain, the EU's humanitarian aid commissioner Christos Stylianides said. Dozens of others are said to have been injured, with four firefighters reported to be among those most seriously hurt.

Louis Oosthuizen is making the biggest move the morning in the U.S. Open at Erin Hills. 15 and 17 before he hit a three-wood on his approach shot on the par-5 18th hole to set up a short eagle putt that allowed him to get to 9 under for the round. It led to an eagle to close out his 63.

World No.9 Rickie Fowler (68) is solo fifth, with Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim, from South Korea, a shot back in sixth after also carding a 68. The only disappointment was a three-putt bogey from 35 feet on the final hole.

Rickie Fowler, who is two shots back, said after his round Saturday that he was hoping the wind would pick up to make the course tougher. And he wasn't through.

China's Li Haotong, who on Friday became the first player from mainland China to make the cut at a major, bombed out of contention with a 10-over-par 82. Former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson shot a 71, though he was still seven shots behind.

Still, he was pleased overall on a day when only 11 players topped his 69. But for years, the U.S. Open has been the one tournament fans relied on to watch the world's best golfers be roughed up and spat out like weekend duffers.

Although "infection is a significant risk", the physician said, "an excellent recovery is a good possibility". He was one of five people injured from gunshots during the shooting but the only congressman who was hit.

"I've got a good plan for this course". No one had a chance. He had a bogey on No. 8, but that was sandwiched between birdies on No. 7 and No. 9. "But it's such a cool course standing on the tee", he said of Erin Hills.

He gave back a stroke on No. 4 when his drive went into the right fescue and his second shot was over the green.

Thirty-two players had sub-par rounds on Saturday, the most ever for the third round. There were five players in double digits Saturday at Erin Hills. He failed to get up-and-down from behind the 17th green, and then he three-putted from 40 feet on the final hole to finish at 8-under 272.

There will be an 18-hole playoff on Monday if the leaders are tied after 72 holes. But 67 would tie McIlroy's 16-under score for lowest relative to par in a U.S. Open. He would end the day in a far better position.

For the last few holes of his third round, Thomas's hunger to contend for his first major championship had superseded his physical famishment. 14 and 15 to get to 12-under.

Party colleague Alexis Bachelay sniffed that a Macron-aligned "field mouse" could get 40 percent in the current climate. Macron said "Once the negotiations have started we should be well aware that it'll be more hard to move backwards".

Thomas became the fifth player to shoot 63 in the U.S. Open, and the first with a score of 9 under. Definitely inspiring in a way to see him get off to a good start and kind of motivating to want to get myself to go out and play well. The tournament was never really in doubt after that, though the wind arrived and Kaymer couldn't maintain the pace. Yet somehow, I was straining to hear Patrick Reed's post-round interview over the chirping of a blue jay.
