Li last at US Open, but values the experience

A three-time victor on the PGA Tour this season, Thomas also joined the exclusive "59" club by breaking 60 at the Sony Open, but he may have saved his best for Father's Day weekend and his quest for his first major crown. Exactly half of the 68-man field played it under par as three eagles and 31 birdies produced a scoring average of 3.515.

Rickie Fowler, urged on by the biggest galleries at Erin Hills, turned in a scrappy outward nine mixing two birdies with a bogey to sit three back of the leader.

The Florida State alum opened his final round with two straight birdies, and wouldn't drop a shot until the par-4 10th, his only bogey on the back nine the entire week. "It's going to add some excitement, really, instead of a guy hitting it in the rough and hacking it out and struggling to make a par kind of thing", he said.

"It was a really good round of golf and you don't realise until you start talking about it that I hardly missed a shot all day".

"If somebody shoots nine under tomorrow in the top few (as Thomas did on Saturday) then I'll have to shoot 10, I guess". "Obviously I have no idea what [Sunday] holds, but I'm more motivated by the way I'm striking the ball".

"I thought that the USGA did a phenomenal job this week of allowing the golf course to be what it is and play the way it's supposed to play. I just get a little shaky and jittery on putts and that's what happened on 15".

Thomas has a 59 to his name in 2017 - at January's Sony Open - and two of his four PGA Tour wins have come this year.

The fifth-ranked player in the world hit a 4-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th for a 69 on Sunday.

Fleetwood began the day in a tie for second and made an encouraging start with a birdie from eight feet on the second. "When you set up a golf course in a fair manner and the weather's good, the scores are going to be low". "My game has felt pretty good all week and it was just one of those (days) - it was just trying to take advantage of the opportunities I had".

Thomas's 63 was in the third round, so by default it wasn't to win, but it was lower relative to par; Erin Hills plays at a par-72.

Kaymer got the good end of the draw when rain arrived at Pinehurst No. 2, and he opened with rounds of 65-65 to reach 10-under 130 and build a six-shot lead going into the weekend.

Haman, 30, joined the PGA Tour in 2012 and has won two tournaments, including the Wells Fargo Championship earlier this year.

Fowler likes his chances of breaking his major duck on Sunday. He found stardom right at home as the U.S. Open champion. He failed to get up-and-down from behind the 17th green, and then he three-putted from 40 feet on the final hole to finish at 8-under 272.

It had been a tightly packed leaderboard throughout the third day with six or seven players regularly holding that top spot.

Spieth had a nice day considering how the winds have picked up at Erin Hills.

Harman is playing in just his eighth major, and it's only the third time he has made the cut.
