Justin Thomas ties US Open Tournament record with 63 in third round

Westwood had bogeyed the third and fifth before a superb tee shot on the 239-yard sixth - which played as the most hard hole on Thursday - set up a birdie from 18 feet.

During his historic Saturday run to get himself at the top of the leaderboard at the US Open, the 24-year-old used some of his skills he must have acquired from mini-putt at the par-4 fifth hole at Erin Hills. Obviously, today I definitely had something to show for it.

Thomas broke the US Open record for low round in relation to par. "And I wouldn't have been able to do that without that rain last night, so I guess I'm thankful for that".

Thomas raced into a two-shot lead with his remarkable, record-breaking effort on the longest course in the event's history, carding nine birdies and capping a sensational round with an eagle at the final hole.

"When I saw it was about seven feet away I knew maybe we had a chance of history".

"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. To hear that crowd go insane when I made that putt was really cool, but not only that, more importantly, to give myself a better chance to win the tournament".

Tommy Fleetwood and Brian Harman are tow shots back while entering the back nine. It's soft enough where you can have rounds like today, getting it going.

"I'm hungry. So I was - honestly, I was a little mad at myself because I could feel I was hungry on 14 and 15, I didn't have anything", he said. "This is new for me, I can't deny that or lie about that".
