Getty Dustin Johnson is going for his second major
21 June, 2018, 00:24
"That was miserable", Johnson grumbled.
In a story June 17 about Brooks Koepka winning the U.S. Open, The Associated Press reported erroneously that his winning score of 281 was 13 shots higher than previous year.
Johnson extended his lead on Friday, ending the day as the only play under par (4-under). "Today's round, I didn't feel like I played badly at all, seven over, usually is a awful score, but with the greens the way they got this afternoon they were very, very hard".
"When something like (Saturday) happens, all of a sudden you're coming into today, you knew that they were going to water the heck out of the greens, that they're going to be soft", Reed said.
After starting the day in a four-way tie for the lead with Koepka, Daniel Berger and Tony Finau, 2016 champion Johnson carded a 70 to finish two shots back in third place.
Fleetwood played with Koepka in the final group a year ago at Erin Hills.
Justin Rose, who shot a 73 that included just two birdies but also five bogeys to be fifth at three-over followed Johnson's "sit on the fence" political stance. Now the Open is as wide open as ever, with 15 players at or within four shots. It was definitely more receptive this morning than yesterday, that's for sure.
Mickelson, who has been a U.S. Open runner-up six times, most recently in 2013, was having a miserable time Saturday before reaching 13.
"Frankly we missed it with the winds, it blew harder than we thought it would, and the speed of the greens were too much".
Tomorrow's final round now shapes as a test as much of the USGA's public image as the 22 golfers within five shots of the lead.
"I'm in a good position", he said. It's as good as it gets.
"I can have someone tell me to do stuff all the time every day and if I don't want to do it, I ain't gonna do it", Johnson told CNN.
The greens were so fast and crusty that well-struck shots into greens rolled over the surfaces, or rolled off the edges into bunkers.
Berger and Finau shot third-round 66s.
"In preparation for today's forecasted dry and windy conditions and to maintain a challenging yet fair U.S. Open test, we applied appropriate levels of water to all putting greens last night and this morning for turf health and firmness", the U.S. Golf Association said in a statement.
Davis promised to slow down the course for Sunday's final round.
Too bad the damage to this championship has already been done, as what had been a strong examination of skill turned into a game of chance.
Rose was one shot behind, with Stenson another shot behind. "It's just hard. It's brutal". Both made the cut by one stroke, at seven over par, and as a result played in early groups Saturday, when the course was more forgiving.
Fowler finished almost two hours before the leaders teed off, punctuating his day with a tap-in birdie at the last for 11-over 291. "I feel like you're going to have to take it from me, to be honest with you".
That's probably little solace to Johnson, of course, who watched his two rounds of sublime play disappear over the course of four frustrating hours.
Koepka, with a performance and a demeanor reminiscent of Retief Goosen winning at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, began the back nine with three pivotal putts - one for birdie, one for bogey, one for par.
