    18 de junio de 2017

    International Sports Desk, Jun 18 (efe-epa).- Brian Harman of the United States ended the third round of the US Open at Erin Hills, Wisconsin on Saturday atop the leaderboard on 12-under-par, one shot ahead of compatriots Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka and England's Tommy Fleetwood.

    Justin Thomas became the first man to shoot nine-under-par in the history of the US Open.

    Harman, who won the Wells Fargo championship last month, continued in his rich vein of form on Saturday, sinking six birdies.

    This is his third appearance at the US Open, and the first time he has made the cut.

    England's Fleetwood had led until the final hole, when only his third bogey of the week meant he relinquished the lead to 30 year-old Harman, leaving himself tied with Koepka and Thomas.

    In addition to being the first to register a nine-under-par round, Thomas also became just the fifth man in the history of the US Open to score 63.
