Kite looks back on windy final round at Pebble

Fowler grabs early lead with record-tying 7-under 65 at US Open

Fowler grabs early lead with record-tying 7-under 65 at US Open

There were five players in double digits Saturday at Erin Hills. Two down, 14 to go.

England's Fleetwood had led until the final hole, when only his third bogey of the week meant he relinquished the lead to 30-year-old Harman, leaving himself tied with Koepka and Thomas.

Reed was one of the biggest movers, powering up the board with a dazzling seven-under-par 65 that included four birdies on the front nine against one bogey.

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. "No matter what that's something when you're always going to walk up the 18th green with your best mate".

However, the world number 50 - featuring in his first major since 2015 - has played beautifully throughout the week, with accuracy off the tee a significant factor in his success. Spieth has said that he feels that he is striking the ball well, but that he is trying to get more consistent on and around the greens.

Harman closed with two birdies and three tough pars for a five-under 67 that gave him a one-shot lead at 12-under 204.

With the US Open weather looking like it could have winds of up to 16 miles per hour and with gusts of around 25mph - scoring should be a little trickier in the final round.

Tom Kite carded a closing 72 to win by two shots from Jeff Sluman, with 20 of the 66-man field shooting in the 80s to contribute to a scoring average of 77.2.

Morgan shot 77 and, remarkably, still had the lead at 4-under 212.

"I don't think I could play any different or score any better than I have done", said Fleetwood, who won his second European Tour title earlier this season at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship.

Brian Harman had the lead at 12 under coming into the day.

Players are on the course for the final round of the U.S. Open in blustery conditions at Erin Hills.

Englishman Fleetwood shared the lead playing the par-five 18th, but made a complete mess of it and does well to salvage a bogey, falling back to 11 under par and into a tie for second with Americans Thomas and Koepka, with Fowler two behind leader Harman.

The wind is gusting up to 25 miles per hour with the forecast calling for it to go as high as 30 miles per hour in the afternoon when the leaders tee off.

Thomas soared up the leaderboard from 22nd, and all it took was a 9-under 63, the lowest round to par in a major long known as the toughest test in golf.

Brian Harman finished the day at 12 under, then surmised, "I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens".

"It's going to be a really cool day for someone tomorrow", Fowler said.
