Undoubtedly. They also eased back on the pin positions a bit.
Ha some British guy Holly Sonders is interviewing just called Phil a chump and an ass
Don’t worry—wind starting to pick up. Scores will be worse later.
So what are people guessing the winning score will be? +3?
I would bet +5, if I literally had to pick a number. If it's 10-15 mph winds, it'll be rough out there, even with the better pin positions.
No idea what the score will be, but hard not to like DJ
I’d put my money on Rose personally. He was favorite coming in and nothing he’s done so far has dissuaded me from that.
I’m rooting for Koepka for selfish/fantasy reasons.
It would be great if someone like Schauffele or Fleetwood could post +4 and then see what happens.
Fleetwood may do just that
I liked Rose and still do, and I think Reed could go low today.
In fairness, in 1963, the winning score at the Masters was -2 (Nicklaus) and only 2 golfers were under par, the PGA was -5 (Nicklaus), and only 4 guys were under par, and the British was -3 (Bob Charles) and only 3 golfers (including Nicklaus at -2) were under Par.
+9 being the winning score in that era at the US Open would be like -5 or -6 winning in this one, not +5 or whatever they are going to end up at today. Even the best golfer in history was having trouble being under par over 4 rounds in 1963.
You can see the flags starting to move more.
Someone shooting a +1 on the back nine to win the US Open seems like it would be extremely appropriate. It’s the US Open it’s supposed to be hard.
I think you need to qualify that statement with something like....
“the guy who shoots a +1 from there because his good shots don’t randomly incur as much bad luck as everyone else’s good shots probably wins. Not exactly what you want to see.”
Random luck is bad. A hard, but fair US open course is awesome
Not Patrick Reed. I was okay with him winning one, but not two. And not Webb Simpson, because I hate him.
Go Reed go!
Him winning two in a row would be great. Day and McIlroy have fallen off. We need new elite younger guys to watch battle it out for years to come.
Just was told that USGA came in earlier before the tourney and said the fairways were too wide. They took out chunks of fairway and brought it to a sod farm in NJ. Replaced the edges of fairways with more rough.
Ugh Patrick Reed
Patrick Reed winning two majors in a row and actually becoming the player that people wish Rickie Fowler was would be absolutely hysterical.
PReed making a charge
Patrick Reed winning on Father's Day will piss Gerry Callahan off so much.
Finau may be out of this in a hurry
and the final pairing both shank their tee shots at 2.
So far the USGA went from insane to a bunch of scores in the 60’s
Got the radio they gave me to listen to audio coverage. Koepka/DJ had amazing shots in to 3 it sounds like.
DJ is on point and so is Brooks. That's the group.
Beyond amazing, especially DJ's shot, from the fescue to 8 feet.
I will be surprised if their total score today is below 150.
if DJ could putt today would have no drama
You're writing Koepka off way too easily
Not to mention several others
I think he's talking about yesterday (and the first two rounds) more than today. DJ had 38 putts yesterday. The most in his career in a PGA event. If he just had a normal day with something like 28 putts, he'd have a 10 shot lead to start the day. He had 26 and 27 in the 1st two rounds.
Fleetwood is going to post a score, and it's going to become a war of attrition to see if someone can beat it.
What's the last hole we see Finau/Berger play before they are officially ignored by the TV coverage?
If he can get home no worse than he is now, +3, he's got a great chance. I hope he doesn't give a few back before he posts his score.
I would place the over/under after the 7th if they don’t make a birdie soon
Fleetwood is unconscious.
Have to believe he's the favorite if he can get in at +2.
If Fleetwood shoots 62 or 63 and wins, is this the best round in major championship history?
It will be hilarious if someone wins with a 62 final round after how the first 3 rounds went
Rose has fallen apart for the moment
Didn’t expect to see Rose struggle
Koepka, Johnson, Reed, and Fleetwoord are the only players in contention at this point.
Kind of Amazing Fleetwood is not getting every shot live coverage at this point, as he might be the favorite at the moment, as well as having the open scoring record in sighte
This is a nightmare. If Fleetwood gets another one and gets in at +1, if the winds pick up, and the greens bake some more, there might be 1 guy out there that doesn't shoot himself out of contention halfway through the back 9. Worst possible outcome is Fleetwood gets in, and everyone else falls apart, and the whole thing is over with a bunch of holes left to play.
Parziale ties for low am. Awesome.
Awesome for Parziale. So, so cool.
