Leishman lurks behind leaders at US Open

Leishman lurks behind leaders at US Open

Thomas broke the U.S. Open record for low round in relation to par.

"As long as it's a good tournament, it's good for the U.S. Open, " Thomas said.

Harman closed with two birdies and three tough pars for a 5-under 67 that gave him a one-shot lead at 12-under 204.

This isn't like most Opens.

Johnny Miller owned the previous best round of eight-under 63 set en route to victory in the final round at the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont. It led to an eagle to close out his 63. Thomas is tied for second with Tommy Fleetwood (68) and Brooks Koepka (68).

With Father's Day on Sunday, a lot of families walked the fairways at Erin Hills Golf Course.

By drilling an eagle putt on the par-5 18th hole, Thomas became just the fifth player to finish with a score of 63 at the US Open. And he wasn't through.

Behind the leading quartet, a logjam grouped eight players within two shots of the lead.

Also at 11 under was Tommy Fleetwood, who was poised to take the lead until his pitch came up short, his next shot went 60 feet down a slope on the back of the 18th green and he turned potential birdie into bogey and settled for a 68.

But his planned address, and that of Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, was cancelled because of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy.

Morgan shot 77 and, remarkably, still had the lead at 4-under 212. He shot 75 and missed the cut.

As dominant as Woods was, he never reached 10-under par until the final round. For all his good work, the Englishman needed a ideal pitch shot to save his round. No one had a chance. There are five players in double digits at Erin Hills.

Hoffman birdied five of his first eight holes to get to 9 under, one shot clear of a massive logjam in second. There were 32 sub-par rounds, a record for U.S. Open third rounds. The leaders still had another two hours before they teed off. Oosthuizen, the former British Open champion at St. Andrews, was hopeful of at least giving them something to think about.

Oosthuizen, whose sole major title to date came at St Andrews in 2010, birdied the first, fourth, seventh and eighth to move to four under par, while 2015 victor Spieth had covered his first 11 holes in level par. Fleetwood was poised to take the lead until his pitch to the 18th wasn't strong enough and his next shot went beyond the flag and down the slope some 70 feet away.

Stricker improved by a stroke even though Erin Hills showed a few more teeth than it had in Thursday's opening round.

Harman won the 2003 U.S. Junior Amateur, putting him position to become the fourth player to win both the Junior Amateur and U.S. Open titles. 14 and 15 to get to 12-under.

Rory McIlroy hit back at suggestions he was "bored" with golf after missing the cut in the US Open for the second year in succession. The tournament was never really in doubt after that, though the wind arrived and Kaymer couldn't maintain the pace.

Casey chopped his way to a triple bogey, only to respond with five straight birdies that carried him to a 1-under 71 and make him the first to post at 7-under 137. He shot 72 in the third round for an 8-under 202.

He floated a wedge shot to three feet to escape with his only bogey of the round.
