Brian Harman looks for major breakthrough at US Open

Brian Harman looks for major breakthrough at US Open

While Justin Thomas was the headline act at Erin Hills on Saturday courtesy of a sensational nine-under 63, the lowest score to par in the tournament's history, it was Harman who ended round three at the top of the leaderboard.

But nearly as soon as he signed his card, Thomas was overtaken by the understated Brian Harman, who'll take a one-shot lead into tomorrow's final round after his own dazzling 63 on a day of incredible scoring.

He became the 30th player to shoot 63 at a major championship on Saturday, but more importantly, his 9-under round on the par-72 layout was the lowest score in relation to par in U.S. Open history.

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. Instead, it's Fleetwood and Harman and Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler, so it's, well, is it still potentially the greatest finish in U.S. Open history?

Left-hander Brian Harman emerged from the pack as the single leader by one stroke at 12-under par. He shot 68 and was only three back.

Reed climbed up the leaderboard with a 65, one day after signing for a 75.

Amazingly by US Open standards, five players are at 10 under or better - and none of them have won a major previously, meaning the current streak of six majors in a row to newcomers will likely extend tomorrow. "I will do my best", he said.

Harman was hoping to become the fourth player in succession to convert a 54-hole lead into victory after Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker in the last two majors of 2016 and Sergio Garcia in April's Masters. Or that Mickelson never made it to Erin Hills, opting instead to attend his daughter's high school graduation?

Mika family says he suffered multiple gun shots
Mika is a volunteer team coach. "We're deeply concerned about him and his family", Tyson Foods said in a statement . Mika, an Oakland County native, now works as the director of government relations at Tyson Foods in Washington .

Miller, who holds onto that 63 like Mercury Morris does the "72 Dolphins ideal record, always has an opinion, which he shared with Golf Channel after Thomas" round.

The world No.13 fired a brilliant nine-under-par 63 in Saturday's third round.

Kaymer made it back to 10 under on the back nine Sunday, but a late bogey for a 69 meant he would finish at 9-under 271 for an eight-shot victory.

"I think the biggest thing is not getting ahead of yourself". "I have been striking the ball well", Spieth said.

Tommy Fleetwood is a 26 year-old Englishman who plays most his golf on the European Tour.

"All Jimmy (caddie Jimmy Johnson) and I were trying to do is give ourselves a best chance to make a four". "Tomorrow's going to be fun". It doesn't matter how long the course is. "I was just happy that I was the one to take advantage of it today". Harman missed the cut in his previous two U.S. Opens.

"It was obviously an awesome day", he said. "And this week it's been key, I've been working with my coach, just sitting there and thinking, 'All right, let's go out and try to make a good golf swing and try to make a good putt and at the end of the day add them up and see how you do'".

"That was what it felt like when I looked up at the numbers on the scoreboard", he confirmed.
