The nearest challengers to Harman include a man who made history on Saturday with the lowest score to par in U.S. Open history.
The much-maligned site of this year's national championship has been giving up birdies and low scores, very unlike a U.S. Open Course.
The world No.13 will hope to follow up Saturday's record-breaking round by capturing the first major title of his career and he is confident of landing the top prize, revealing he is enjoying the set-up at Erin Hills. I mean seriously, Eagle Putts on Par 5's, come on man, that's just insane! "It's all pretty self-explanatory in terms of what it means".
"Today I felt really good, played really well".
The muscular American, who started the day one back of overnight leader Brian Harman, was on the charge out of the gate collecting birdies on the opening two holes at a windswept Erin Hills.
A four-under-par 68 left him at 10 under heading into the final Sunday, two behind the lead. 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. And it will play a lot tougher.
He finished at 12-under 272, the first player to complete a U.S. Open double digits under par.
Rickie Fowler waves to the gallery on the 18th green during the third round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at Erin Hills.
Stricker birdied three of four holes going into the par-5 18th. I'm still trying to win out here, and I feel like I still can. Brian Harman, who had the lead coming into the day, made a long birdie putt on No. 3 to join Koepka on top.
On Saturday, Justin Thomas tied the record for the best round at a major by shooting 63. I'd have to say yesterday's conditions were the best by far for the players. There were some incredible shots one in particular was Justin Thomas' Eagle Putt on 18.
Li, who turned professional at age 16 and won the Volvo China Open previous year on the European Tour, said he started pressing in the third round. "I get a lot of experience in the last couple of days", Li added. The 21-year-old South Korean became the youngest Players Championship victor in history last month. He putted for birdie to move to 2 under for the day and 2 over for the tournament. Here's another: Even the longest course in major championship history can't suppress this generation of big hitters, especially with benign weather conditions and soft greens.
None of the top 16 players have won a major before, with Masters champion Sergio Garcia and 2010 Open victor Louis Oosthuizen both eight shots off the lead.
I remember you once saying as you were putting a club together in the basement while rooting for the Red Sox that there is no such thing as a par 5 for these guys any more, and you were right.
Fowler fell away badly after starting the final round of this year's Masters just one off the pace and belief will surely be key for a player who has regularly contended in majors without taking the prize. "That's what we've been working on, but maybe a day like today is all it needed to just kind of calm down".
