Thomas has recond nine-under, Harman grabs US Open lead

Paul Casey is looking to recover from another triple bogey.

"That means I'm a part of history", Thomas told reporters.

Harman, bidding to become the first left-hander to win a U.S. Open, is a victor on the PGA Tour this year while Thomas is the world number 13, a three-time victor this season and a member of the exclusive "59" club after breaking 60 at the Sony Open this year.

The last six majors have crowned first-time champions and that trend looks poised to continue at Erin Hills where you have to look way down the leaderboard to 19th before finding a major victor in U.S. Masters champion Sergio Garcia of Spain.

"We're in a good spot", Fowler said. The course took an inch of rain overnight, making it about as menacing as a golden retriever puppy.

American Justin Thomas led a charge by early starters up the U.S. Open leaderboard on Saturday, grabbing a share of the third round lead. "More like 200mil. not bad for a "bored" 28 year old. plenty more where that came from", replied the Northern Irishman.

He completed his record-breaking score by smashing his second shot to eight feet on the 667-yard closing hole, setting up an eagle which brought a roar that could be heard all over Wisconsin.

Southport's Fleetwood, who finished tied for 27th on his only other US Open appearance in 2015, appeared to be heading towards his second bogey-free round of the tournament after laying up with his second shot on the par-five 18th. But his chip landed short of the green on a ridge, leaving him a almost impossible putt to hold the green.

The 30-year-old Harman has five top-10 finishes and two victories since joining the tour in 2012, most recently at the Wells Fargo Championship in May. I could still have been there now, hitting the ball over the green.

"Three days down and so far so good".

Patrick Reed has joined the 65 club at Erin Hills. And most of my birdie putts were uphill and I could attack. "On Friday it was the opposite".

Russell Henley (67), Charley Hoffman (68) and Brandt Snedeker (69) are all in a group three off the lead on eight under.

However, not all Americans fared well.

Also starting strong was Justin Thomas with tap-in birdies on his opening two holes to reach 4 under. In the history of the U.S. Open, only six players previously had ever gotten to double digits under par.

"I probably would have hit 2-iron because I could have roasted a little hook-in 2-iron and got it with the slope", Thomas said. "Obviously I have no idea what [Sunday] holds, but I'm more motivated by the way I'm striking the ball".

"It's just been trying to figure it out on and around the greens. He's upstairs and I'm down in the basement area, so it shouldn't get too physical".

And two-time victor Ernie Els, who was two under after round one, dropped five shots in his opening six holes on Saturday.

Amazingly it could have been even better if not for bogeys on the fourth and 10th, as well as a missed eagle putt from six feet on the 15th after he had driven the green on the 288-yard par four. Moments later, he began a run of five straight birdies that put him right where he wanted to be going into the weekend. In fact, he's not even leading after three rounds.

However, it looks like Lee Westwood's wait to win a major will go on to The Open in July. He took full advantage, pitching to 6ft and holing the birdie putt.
