Justin Thomas enjoys record third round at US Open

Of the five other players who shot a 63 in the third round at a major, none went on to win.

There are 23 golfers within four shots of the lead and 42 players under par. As I've gotten older, I've gotten a little farther, but a lot more straighter. I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes. And my short game is pretty good. "So I'm excited about all those things".

Maybe the real U.S. Open will finally make a cameo on Sunday when winds are expected to reach 15 miles per hour about the time the final groups take the field, but then nothing else has gone to plan at the 117th edition.

Southport's Fleetwood, 26, won the Abu Dhabi Championship to claim his second European Tour title earlier this year.

Reavie is playing in his fifth Open, but first since 2012 at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. "I got in the hazard on one and pulled the 4-iron on the par-3", Koepka said.

Great place to be for a guy trying to win his first major. And he'll have done so with some other players without a major looking to track down their first.

Rickie Fowler (-10): This is still Fowler's tournament to lose.

And yet, Thomas won't even walk to the first tee box Sunday with the lead. Also, Fowler has never won one.

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

On Saturday, Justin Thomas tied the record for the best round at a major by shooting 63.

United Kingdom police: 58 dead and presumed dead in London blaze
Cundy said there may have been other people in the tower that police are not aware of, which would add to the final death toll. We are also with all those from faith networks and communities, who are working tirelessly to provide immediate support.

Death toll from London inferno rises to 58
Some Grenfell residents had warned months ago fire safety issues at the tower meant that it was at risk of a "catastrophic" event. Authorities say that 58 people are known to have died in Wednesday morning's blaze but that figure is likely to rise.

Citigroup Inc. Upgrades Cone Midstream Partners LP (CNNX) to Buy
The expected ENLK's profit could reach $6.63M giving the stock 199.13 P/E in the case that $0.02 earnings per share is reported. It has underperformed by 1.42% the S&P500.The move comes after 5 months positive chart setup for the $602.30 million company.

In the end, however, history wasn't enough to stand at the top on a day dubbed "Moving Day" for a reason. "I was blown away by the support that I got today", Thomas said. "There's no telling how low", said Harman, who posted his second 67 of the week on Saturday.

"I'm optimistic with where my game is", he said. "I feel probably a lot more comfortable than I have probably in the past". It's kind of simple.

"I like this golf course. When you look at that and just kind of build off the experiences out there".

That left only four of the top 12 in the world to play the weekend.

Only eight shots separate the leaders from the players who made the cut on the number. Shane Lowry led this tournament by four after 54 holes a year ago.

It didn't for Rory McIlroy, either. Going into the final round, 42 players were still under par.

Patrick Reed (-8): Reed rocked his Ryder Cup USA trousers on Saturday, which was unbelievable even though his 65 got drowned in Lake Michigan by Thomas' 63.

"Not every day you enjoy a round of golf with an eight on the card, but I'm a pretty happy man", said Casey. "So I just need to go home, relax a little bit, hang out with the family and I'll see you at the Open Championship in a month".

QUOTEWORTHY: "I'm not here on the weekend, so it's unfortunate". He might, but he also (incredibly) doesn't have a top 10 at a major yet. He is at 11 under, two shots ahead of Charley Hoffman and Tommy Fleetwood. If somebody does it tomorrow to win the U.S. Open by one, that's the specialness of my round. That seems even more unlikely.

"This week I've been working with my coach, just sitting there and thinking, all right, let's go out and try to make a good golf swing and try to make a good putt".
