US Open third round

We are in a group of players on an overnight +1, six shots behind, including major winners Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Patrick Reed and Dustin Johnson. As in any normal tournament, that would seem worthy of challenging the lead on a moving day, but this US Open is so tight, conditions so tough today at Brookline, and they have a huge pack of over 30 players ahead of them. . ,

Still, you’d expect any one of these four to have a real crack at climbing the leaderboards today, and they’ll hope the wind turns more harsh for the leaders later.

“It will be a big weekend,” said Dehmann, who seriously considered abandoning the qualifying process in exchange for a few weeks. “We don’t do tee-off until 3:45 tomorrow. I usually have to come home at 5 for dinner. So, it’s definitely going to be different.”

US Open third round

It is clearly a tough test today and the leaders can be equally happy in this third round as well. Tyrell Hatton is one of the three-over-par strugglers for the day. The wind is blowing and the greens are firm, and it all makes for some very difficult conditions for the golf ball to control.

Matt Fitzpatrick revels in new-found status as one of golf’s big hitters

Matt Fitzpatrick revels in his new-found status as one of golf’s big hitters as he played his way into contention for the second major in succession.

A month after finishing fifth at the US PGA Championship, after battling in the second round of 70, Fitzpatrick equalized Fitzpatrick two-under at the 122nd US Open in Brookline, the scene of his US Amateur victory in 2013.

And this was partially achieved thanks to his increased length from the tee, averaging 317.7 yards in the 27-year-old’s driving distance from Sheffield, two yards ahead of fellow play and two-time major winner Dustin Johnson.
