He may not have the length off the tee the younger generation possesses, but that hasn't stopped the 50-year-old from competing on even terms with the long hitters, many of whom are half his age.

Former Bulldog Brian Harman is all alone at the top of the leader board after three days at the 117th U.S. Open Championship at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin.

"It was obviously an awesome day", Thomas said.

Thomas' 9-under round broke Johnny Miller's record for lowest score in relation to par. That honour went to Brian Harman, who managed to keep his composure to hit an impressive round of 67 sneak into the lead on 12-under par. But he's playing in just his eighth major championship and his first since 2015.

"I'm not sure if it was the trousers", Thomas said.

It was all part of a dizzying day at the U.S. Open where at times the leaderboard resembled a game of musical chairs with names moving up and down.

"I think this week the scores have been low because the weather has been so good".

"I don't know what tomorrow's going to be like. Ends up where it ends up". Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka appear super-relaxed as they smile their way around the course -and the potentially ruinous meltdown Fleetwood just about fended off on 18 yesterday may stand him in good stead when the pressure rises today.

The U.S. Open didn't seem to faze him, and he delivered a variety of big shots that led to his sensational finish. Record scoring and constant movement at the top of the leaderboard is usually exactly what fans want from a golf tournament.

As dominant as Woods was, he never reached 10-under par until the final round.

He kept it in the short grass, the secret to Erin Hills that wouldn't appear to be that hard with some of the widest fairways for this major. It has no water hazards, no out of bounds and no trees. It was sporadic storms earlier in the week that has softened the greens. Dana Fry, one of three designers of the course, told Postmedia that the greatest defence this course has is wind, which has been reduced to little more than a soft breeze so far.
