Former Georgia standout Harman maintains one-shot lead at US Open

Louis Oosthuizen hits from a bunker on the third hole during the fourth round. Harman, who missed the cut in his previous two U.S. Opens, is going for his first major title.

And he'll likely have to do it in a manner that most of the past winners of the big trophy rarely would have considered - by making birdies.

That is not to say there hasn't been excitement or drama. As Brian Harman began to fade, Koepka poured it on with birdies over the next three holes, lightly pumping his fist after each one.

The 24-year-old carved a 3-wood from the fairway to within 8 feet of the cup on the 667-yard finishing par-5 and drained the putt for a 9-under-par 63, the best US Open round ever in relation to par. "I don't know what I'm going to feel". I'm sure I won't sleep in. Just go out there and play my game plan, stick to what I know how to do and just go play some golf.

It is almost impossible to predict because the competitors and their body of work offer no clear pattern.

"It's hard to stay patient but I was proud of the way I did that". They have been slashed, as U.S. Golf said, it had nothing to do with complaints by players. I think I hit 17 greens today which was just awesome in these conditions. "That's good enough for me".

American Brian Harman starts the final round at the links-style course sitting alone atop a crowded leaderboard one shot clear of Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Englishman Tommy Fleetwood. Summerhays wasn't one of them; he shot a one-over 73. But he is the only one who carries the label of being the best player never to have won a major. The strongest gusts were Sunday morning and it tapered to a strong breeze by the afternoon. So far, there have been 49 rounds in the 60s.

Fowler will have to play better than he did Saturday to win, and that's saying something.

The wind at Erin Hills is finally expected to pick up for Sunday's final round, which could put a halt to all the record-setting scoring that's made the U.S. Open leaderboard look more like one at a regular PGA Tour stop. "I'd love to have another one of those", Thomas said.

Dana Fry, one of three designers of the course, told Postmedia that the greatest defence this course has is wind, which has been reduced to little more than a soft breeze so far. That back nine really suits my eye. "I don't think I do".

All statistics via the U.S. Open's official website. The venues typically produce a level of grumbling that has not been heard this week. Furthermore, Erin Hills is still growing, but it will be a monster down the road, and it will undoubtedly host another major. The cut for the top 60 and ties was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah.

However, the 26-year-old from Southport then bogeyed the sixth after hitting a poor chip across the green and dropped another shot on the eighth after firing his approach over the green. Nine under is incredible with US Open pressure. This promises to be different, a shootout perhaps, but no less stressful.

"I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", Spieth said.

Third-round disappointment aside, Cink is still looking forward to playing on Sunday.
