Harman leads US Open by 1 shot heading into final round

18 Juin 2017

OVERNIGHT leader Rickie Fowler has slipped off the pace in the second round of the US Open, with four players now sharing the lead.

Joining Thomas in joint second place is countryman Brooks Koepka and England's Tommy Fleetwood (both 68).

Round 4 of the 2017 U.S. Open golf tournament begins at 9:51 a.m. ET Sunday at Erin Hills golf course in Hartford, Wis.

"If you look at the golf course and you even talk to me, Jason or Rory, this course sets up flawless for us". "I just didn't get it in the hole fast enough". And on No. 9, he made a 21-foot putt. "We're definitely in good position for tomorrow". The scores are low, but we're playing well.

What we're left with are 12 players within 5 shots of the leader and a forecast calling for blustery conditions on Sunday, opening up the possibility for Erin Hills to bite back a little bit. "When you give us soft greens and not much wind, you know there are going to be some good scores". So that kind of takes the advantage away from the bombers. But, obviously, his 67 with six birdies and one bogey was a pretty good round.

He clawed that back with a birdie on the 12th, draining a six-foot putt but was soon in trouble on the 13th, three-putting for bogey.

"I'm motivated by the fact that I've made a plan and I've stuck to the plan so far", Harman said. This is the first time in major championship history that the top-three ranked players have failed to make the cut. Back in May, Harman won the Wells Fargo Championship in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Thomas and Thomas help Sun hand Lynx first loss, 98-93
Alyssa Thomas' 20 points are a season high as she reached 1,000 for her career and added a career-high eight assists. After Jasmine Thomas had missed two free throw attempts, Moore had another chance at a three but missed the rim.

"This is my first time in contention in a major, so whatever happens I'll be doing my best and seeing how well I can finish".

Whatever happens, the championship is set to crown a first-time major victor, as the closest previous major champion is Louis Oosthuizen in a tie for 17th at four-under.

Thomas, decked out in fluorescent pink trousers, was on the move quickly with a birdie-birdie start and had an even hotter finish to his front nine, carding birdies on four-of-five closing holes, including the last three to move to seven-under. Patrick Reed, Charley Hoffman and Russell Henley (8-under) all have a chance to make a move, as do a number of guys below them on the leaderboard. "Looking forward to the next two days".

"I started feeling a couple of rounds at Colonial like that, where I really felt like I was seeing the lines, I was confident going into it".

Greg Norman and Vijay Singh are the only golfers to record two rounds of 63 in the majors.

Asked if he would have been able to recover from such a mistake earlier in his career, Casey added: "In my good seasons, yes, but there have been times when I struggled, so probably not!"
