Kite looks back on windy final round at Pebble

Kite looks back on windy final round at Pebble

The roar from the grandstand perhaps reached the town of Hartford.

Thomas finished his round with a short putt for an eagle 3 on the monster 670-yard par-5 finishing hole.

On a wild and wonderful day of scoring, Justin Thomas signed for a 63 - a round of nine-under - that constituted the lowest ever round to par in the championship's long and celebrated history.

"No he didn't did he?" "I think he just expects to make them".

The 24-year-old Thomas is in his third year on the PGA Tour. I wish he was calling it just to hear what he would have said. "It hasn't been beaten". Their minds are going to wander, to drift off to thinking about what happens if I win the US Open. Saturday is traditionally known as "moving day" in the PGA.

ERIN, Wis. (AP) - Brian Harman stood on the podium with hands on hips, giving answers in the kind of matter-of-fact voice expected from someone used to the spotlight of a major championship.

Marc Leishman, the lone Australian left extant by the halfway cut that fell on those who shot more than one-over par for the first 36-holes, shot an eventually disappointing level-par 72 to sit T17.

It also put him squarely in the mix to capture his first major. "I don't hit it as far as some, but I hit the first hole in two shots today, so I hit it far enough".

"My game has felt pretty good all week. But I was really swinging it well and thought I could give it a little bit more on the tee shot and have a nine-iron into the green".

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.

Fleetwood picked up a victory in Abu Dhabi on the European Tour while Rickie Fowler, who will start two behind the pacesetter, is widely regarded as the current best golfer not to have won a major.

Yet this golf course is no snap.

Heck, I'm guilty of this myself.

Fleetwood almost came into the clubhouse with a minus-12. But his chip landed short of the green on a ridge, leaving him a almost impossible putt to hold the green.

Harman narrowly missing a birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to finish at 204.

"It was a good save, though".

"It was a good save", Fleetwood said. "No matter what that's something when you're always going to walk up the 18th green with your best mate". I still have a lot to play for though - FedEx Cup points, the prizemoney and world ranking points. "And you can't do anything about what anybody else is doing".

"That was the best shot I hit all day". But you can't do anything about that stuff. "The guys who do a really good job of that today are going to have a chance to win".

Koepka had the same attitude after he, too, shot a four-under-68. The whole thing was eclipsed Saturday in the U.S. Open when he turned the sport of golf into his own trophy case.

"I actually hit a pretty decent drive at the 12th, nearly where I aimed it". At 7,800 yards, it is the longest Open venue ever.

Miller hit all 18 greens in regulation. But it was getting dark and I wore colored glasses then.

The third round began with four players tied for the lead at seven under par.

"I made two bad swings on the front nine. I'd love to have another one of those", said Thomas, who posted at 11-under 205. I usually don't. So I'm pretty much docking that for tomorrow, and figure I have no chance to sleep in.

Thomas is no stranger to low scores.

Thomas' unprecedented round was all the more remarkable for the fact it featured two bogeys, at the fourth and 10th.

Thomas shook off some nerves as he waited for the putt. A mere hiccup. On Saturday, he got to 14 under, then on Sunday, he widened the gap versus par to 16 under.
