Miller not happy with Thomas breaking his US Open record

He was at 14-under par at the turn, and he later birdied No. 14 and 15 to open a three-stroke lead. He tied for 13th in last year's Open at Oakmont.

"I had no idea (I was close to a record) in terms of the relation to par", Thomas was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. Champ is 3 over in the final round with two holes to play.

The challenge today for the leaders will be dealing with the enormity of winning the US Open. "It was downwind to where I knew if I hit it solid, I could definitely get it there".

Justin Thomas reacts after his birdie on the 17th hole during the third round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Saturday, June 17, 2017, at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis.

Brooks Koepka has won the U.S. Open title for his first major championship. About all that save Erin Hills from another onslaught was a forecast for the strongest wind of the week. He still built a six-shot lead through 36 holes, despite hitting his tee shot into the ocean on the 18th hole and salvaging bogey. There have been whimsical comparisons to the old Greater Milwaukee Open, but even that isn't fair.

But the long-hitting 26-year-old from Southport outside Liverpool is firing on all cylinders at links-styled Erin Hills and stands one shot from the lead as Sunday's final round began.

Spieth says he asked Ellie on Saturday night what she wanted him to do in the final round of the U.S. Open. Only seven times has a guy who shot a 63 at a major gone on to win the tournament.

"Oh gosh, Jimmy, be good", he said to caddie Jimmy Johnson when the ball was in the air, and it was close to flawless.

World number one Dustin Johnson, second-ranked Rory McIlroy and Australian world number three Jason Day all missed the cut. And he kept right on going early in the third round, rolling in a 25-foot eagle putt on the par-5 fourth hole to reach 11-under par.

Li, who turned professional at age 16 and won the Volvo China Open past year on the European Tour, said he started pressing in the third round. And then he made birdie on the next hole.

England's Tommy Fleetwood followed two shots back, one ahead of Rickie Fowler and Charley Hoffman. "It means I have a lot better chance to win the tournament than I did when the day started". Englishman Paul Casey who had a share of the overnight lead, crashed down the leaderboard with a triple bogey to sit six off the pace with nine to play.

World number five Jordan Spieth completed a disappointing championship on a positive note by posting a three-under par 69 on a hard, windy day at Erin Hills.

At one time seven players were tied for the lead at seven-under and then again at eight-under with nobody able to gain separation until Thomas ripped a mighty three-wood second shot and then drained his eight-foot eagle putt at 18 sparking thundering roars from the massive gallery.

Gusts are forecast to pick up on Sunday, when a new major victor appears all but certain to be crowned with none of the top 16 on the leaderboard having previously taken out one of golf's premier strokeplay events.
