Wind howling as final round at Erin Hills gets under way

Unheralded American Brian Harman leads the field by one shot on 12 under, and will tee off in the final pairing alongside Justin Thomas at 2:54pm local time (1954 GMT). But there's a host of other well known names in contention, too.

The world number 50 headed to the clubhouse on 12 under, one ahead of Thomas, Brooks Koepka and England's Tommy Fleetwood. Trust us: We're in for a fun afternoon out on the Kettle Moraine.

Thomas equalled the lowest score in major championship history with a stunning 63 on Saturday, a nine-under-par round which was also the lowest in relation to par in a US Open, eclipsing the eight-under 63 shot by Johnny Miller to win at Oakmont in 1973.

"Yeah, 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot lead in most Opens", he said.

Rickie Fowler, on the verge of being left behind, rallied with three straight birdies and shot 68. He still built a six-shot lead through 36 holes, despite hitting his tee shot into the ocean on the 18th hole and salvaging bogey.

Here's the full TV and streaming schedule for Sunday. Fleetwood was poised to take the lead until his pitch to the 18th wasn't strong enough and his next shot went beyond the flag and down the slope some 70 feet away. And he kept right on going early in the third round, rolling in a 25-foot eagle putt on the par-5 fourth hole to reach 11-under par. He made an eagle on his final hole at the Sony Open in January to shoot 59, and he went on to break the PGA Tour's 72-hole scoring record.

Just because golfers are shooting low scores in the U.S. Open, it doesn't mean Erin Hills isn't a fabulous course.

'Cars 3' Races Past 'Wonder Woman' to No. 1
In total, the Cars films have now grossed over $1 billion worldwide, and over a whopping $10 billion in global merchandise sales. Sony can't be happy with the performance of the R comedy " Rough Night ", which only took in $8 million on over 3,000 screens.

He had a six-shot lead at the turn but hit only three fairways on the nine and missed a 4-foot par putt on the 18th for a 70. Brian Harman, who had the lead coming into the day, made a long birdie putt on No. 3 to join Koepka on top. "It means I have a lot better chance to win the tournament than I did when the day started". Plus, if it was such an easy course, the top three players in the world wouldn't have missed the cut.

"Obviously, I have no idea what tomorrow holds, but I'm more motivated by the way that I'm striking the ball".

Whoever emerged victorious would definitely have earned it given the conditions which were reminiscent of the final round of the 1992 US Open at Pebble Beach. The final-round average was 77.2, and 20 players shot in the 80s. Even though it will be hard, I don't anticipate this being a blood-letting.

But birdies will be harder to come by on Sunday with winds gusting from 25-30 miles per hour (40-48 kph), bending flag sticks and moving balls over hardening greens.

Rickie Fowler, who is two shots back, said after his round Saturday that he was hoping the wind would pick up to make the course tougher. Spieth made birdies on the first two holes, both of which are playing downwind.

None of the leading 16 players have won a major before, making it likely that a run of six consecutive victories by first-timers will extend to seven this weekend.
