Key Moments of the Day

The following section will showcase the highlights and memorable moments of round three.

Rickie Fowler and Wyndham Clark share the lead

The Murrieta, California native Fowler recorded an even par round of 70 to keep hold of first place. It appeared as if he would be the solo leader but a costly bogey on 18 put a slight damper on his round.

The best moment of the day for Fowler came on No. 13 when he rolled in a 69-footer for birdie from just off the edge of the green.

Wyndham Clark poured in four birdies and three bogeys en route to a 1-under 69. The winner of the Wells Fargo Championship in May found himself in trouble on the 17th but managed to get up and down for a bogey. On hole 18, Clark stuck his long approach from the fairway and sunk a birdie to grab the tie for first. It is his first major lead in just his seventh appearance at a major.

Rory McIlroy continues to lurk

McIlroy has a chance to win his first major title since the 2014 PGA Championship after he shot a 1-under 69 on Saturday. The World No. 3 recorded three birdies, two bogeys and 13 pars during his round.

Scheffler makes his move

The World No. 1 finished his day with a hole-out from the fairway for an eagle on the 17th hole and followed it with a lengthy 22-foot birdie on 18 to move to 7-under par and three strokes behind the leaders.

Scheffler opened his front nine with an even-par 35 and closed with a 33 on the back to card a 2-under par 68. The 26-year-old has two wins this season at the Waste Management Phoenix Open (defended title) and at the Players Championship. His form has been razor-sharp with 13 top 10s in 17 events. Entering the tournament, he recorded four-straight top-five finishes and is in search of his second major win (won the 2022 Masters).

Xander Schauffele struggles

The San Diego native entered the third round two shots back at 8-under par but carded a 3-over par 73 to fall to 5-under, five strokes back of first.

Tom Kim catches fire

The 20-year-old South Korean tied the U.S. Open scoring record for nine holes after recording a 6-under, 29. Kim climbed up the leaderboard to T9 with his efforts. He could’ve been in serious contention but slowed down with a 2-over 37 on the back nine.
