US Open: Thomas makes history before Harman shows Fleetwood how it's done

Tricky conditions as players begin third round of US Open

Tricky conditions as players begin third round of US Open

American Justin Thomas capped a record-setting third-round with a sensational eagle at the last at the U.S. Open on Saturday, moving closer to adding a maiden major title to an already glorious season of golf. His nine-under score was the lowest relative to par in U.S. Open history.

The left-hander shot a 67 to reach 12 under and take a one-shot lead over Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood.

World number 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.

Another big mover was Patrick Reed, who looked like he might have posted the round of the tournament shooting a 7-under 65 early on Saturday, before Thomas' posted his insane good score later in the day.

Thomas' 3-wood from 299 yards banked into the front of the green and trickled purposely towards the pin on the 18th hole at the U.S. Open.

"I'm hungry", Thomas told reporters.

Ms May also met with survivors of the fire during a visit to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which is treating eight people. Mrs May, already under pressure after a botched snap election, is facing widespread criticism for her response to the blaze.

"Of course they were teeing me up to be a contractor, the architects were", Kubly said.

Hoffman birdied five of his first eight holes to get to 9 under, one shot clear of a massive logjam in second.

Meanwhile, Leishman had raced up the leaderboard through his opening 10 holes before a double bogey at the par-4 12th.

Winning the U.S. Open is something he has thought about many times, the 26-year-old from Southport said. "I was blown away by the support that I got today", Thomas said.

"I try to forget about this tournament when I get done with it", he replied. But as the sun rose over Erin Hills, and the forecast was for no rain, Mickelson withdrew.

After waiting while playing partner Jonathan Thomas hit his third, fourth, fifth and sixth shots, Thomas stood over his ball for a couple seconds and rolled it in for an eagle.

His motives remain unclear but he seemed to be acting by himself and it didn't seem like a very well planned attack. Police spokeswoman Johanna Primevert told The Associated Press just before 5:30 p.m. that the operation was over.

"Yeah, 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", Harman said.

"That was the best shot I hit all day".

The par-4 15th was set up as a drivable hole - downwind and only 288 yards.

With only eight shots separating top to bottom going into the weekend, someone from way back has a chance to make up ground in a hurry. There were five after Saturday's round.

The Kentucky native became the youngest player to shoot 50 on the US PGA Tour during the first round of his Sony Open victory in January.

Fellow Englishman Andrew Johnston mixed three birdies with four bogeys as he slipped back to one under with a 73.

Hudson was asked to put the speculation to rest by one of the show's hosts, but she instead added more fuel to the rumors with her comment.

The 34-year-old finished second in both the US Open and Open Championship in 2015, with his remarkable performance at Chambers Bay leaving him as the holder of two tournament records. "I had no idea about the relation to par, so that was definitely a big bonus".
