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

Justin Thomas, please take a bow...or two. Thomas's 9-under 63 in the third round was one better than Johnny Miller's 63 in the 1973 final round at Oakmont.

Thomas' 63 is just the fifth in U.S. Open history, which has seen the fewest 63s among the four major championships. The Goshen, Ky., native was a member of the Crimson Tide's 2013 national championship team.

Justin Thomas said he could not have hit a better shot than the stunning three-wood on 18 that enabled him to complete a history-making round in the U.S. Open on Saturday.

Thomas opened with a pair of birdies and hit back from a bogey at the fourth with an unlikely birdie at the next, holing a superb putt through the fringe which turned a full 90 degrees. On the closing nine, Justin shot a score of 32, with one eagle, three birdies and one bogey. After a birdie on No. 12 from a downhill lie in the fescue after his tee shot, Thomas hit an awesome 288-yard 3-wood at the reachable par-4 15th, missing the 6-foot eagle putt and settling for birdie. As of 5:20 p.m. Saturday, Thomas held a one-stroke lead over the field at 11-under for the tournament. At that point in the third round, 15 golfers were still on the course. Accomplishing that feat with an eagle on the 18th provided additional juice for Thomas.
