USOpen: Four-way tie at Erin Hills

18 Juin 2017

After weeks of pouring his heart and soul into qualifying for the first U.S. Open played in Wisconsin, Madison's Steve Stricker was right where he wanted to be after the tournament's second round.

"It's not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card, but I'm a pretty happy man". The standing ovation on 18, it's been really cool.

Tonight marked the first time since the world rankings were created in 1986 that the top three ranked golfers on the planet missed the cut at a US Open though. If I wake up with the same feelings tomorrow I'm going to have a chance.

He's still here, too.

It's not been a good tournament for Australians, with Marc Leishman - who is four shots off the lead after an even-par 72 - set to be the only Aussie to make the cut. Johnson and Matt Kuchar will be the second of 34 pairings to hit the course.

"If somebody shoots nine-under from the top few then I'll have to shoot 10, I guess". He landed the ball perfectly on the fringe of the green and it rolled just past the hole for a makeable eagle putt.

Thomas, decked out in shocking fluorescent pink trousers, produced a no less electric performance that featured nine birdies, two bogeys and was capped with a record-smashing eagle at the par-five 18th to complete the best single round in US Open history, in relation to par.

The Englishman had a chance for a piece of the third-round lead at the U.S. Open on Saturday as he lined up his third shot on the par-5 final hole - a 50-yard wedge from the bottom of the hill that led to the green.

Joining Johnson, McIlroy, Day and Willett in going home early are a host of fellow big names.

He added: "It doesn't matter how good you hit it, if you struggle on the greens, there's nothing you can do".

There are 15 players within six strokes of Harman, so it's still a wide-open tournament. So what's his goal in today's third round?

"Yeah, 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", he said. "It was a good round for me". I'm on the verge of it, I feel like. Making sure I just don't get ahead of myself. It's hard to make a lot of birdies for me around here.

"If the sun stays like it is and the wind keeps baking this golf course out, it's pretty treacherous on the weekend, which is just what I would like, and I think what the rest of the players want to see". At Erin Hills you barely would have made the cut at 1-over, and if Sunday is anything like the previous three days, someone is going to have to shoot in the low 60s to win, unless Mother Nature decides to rear an angry face.

Matsuyama, the world number four, had to settle for a one-under-par 71 which left him on six under, six off the pace.
