Spieth stabilizes in final round at US Open


"Yeah, yeah, I know".

McGinley said he likes the makeup of the promising player.

Oh, did Thomas go low.

The 24-year-old Thomas carved a three-wood from the fairway to within eight feet of the cup on the 667-yard finishing par-five and drained the putt for a nine-under-par 63, the best U.S. Open round ever in relation to par.

It was the lowest third-round score in Open history. Typically, a U.S. Open final round is one of attrition, last man standing. And then he made birdie on the next hole.

Thomas has had a breakout season on the PGA Tour, winning three times before February, including consecutive titles in Hawaii in January.

"I'll take exactly where I'm at", Fowler said.

"That was the best shot I hit all day". "Obviously, today I definitely had something to show for it".

Thomas became the fifth player to shoot 63 in the U.S. Open, and the first with a score of 9 under. Yet, he had a tournament-high - for him - five birdies Saturday, including a late stretch where he birdied three out of four holes.

Harman was on top at 12 under coming into the day.

Then comes Thomas and Brooks Koepka (68), who are one shot back.

Rickie Fowler was two behind Harman on 10 under after a four-under-par 68 which kept him firmly in contention. At 7 under are Bill Haas (69), Brendan Steele (69), Brandt Snedeker (70) and Xander Schauffele (70).

South Korea's Kim will lead the Asian quest for a major on Sunday after Hideki Matsuyama was unable to build on his second round 65.

"It's going to be weird", Thomas said of the evening.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson probably didn't feel so badly by the end of a most peculiar day.

Ironically, Erin Hills, the newest jewel in the Wisconsin golf scene, hasn't been Stricker's best friend this week.

The USGA has a history of pushing the envelope when setting up courses for the USA championship. He just didn't know how much history.

"'Taking nothing away from nine-under-par - nine-under is incredible with US Open pressure", he said.

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. But I couldn't have shot any higher. It's not going to be an easy day, for sure. I absolutely love watching what goes on at Augusta National every April when Masters time rolls around. "When I get it going, I don't fear it like I used to of stalling". He won his only PGA Tour event in the Phoenix Open, but along the way, he tied for fifth in the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, and then tied for fourth in the PGA Championship previous year at Baltusrol.

The 20-year-old Scheffler, who plays for the University of Texas, finished at 1-under 287.

Spieth says he asked Ellie on Saturday night what she wanted him to do in the final round of the U.S. Open. I was happy it stayed benign for us, and I capitalized on it. "Sleeping won't be a problem". The first time he's playing in the final group in the final round on one of golf's biggest stages.

"We're breaking down all kinds of barriers", Harman quipped. I was exhausted today, too.

"A really nice, respectful, good boy".

"But I'm confident that I am prepared for whatever happens", he added, "whether something bad happens or something good happens - I'll just rely on that confidence".
