Get involved

To Sunday we go...

Koepka, Fowler, Fleetwood
.

So who takes it?

The 117th US Open is poised as we go into the final day. All of the men at the top have questions to answer and that tag of having never won a major to shift.

That lack of major glory can weigh heavy on shoulders. It can cause the mind to do silly things when pressure is applied. We are sure to see a meltdown somewhere.

So tune in for the chaos.

We will have a live text from around 18:00 BST and the action will be on 5 live from 21:30 BST.

Thank you for your company and both myself and Jack Skelton will speak to you tomorrow.

Goodnight. FORE LEFT!

It looks like the leaders will be off at 20:54 BST tomorrow. So work back from there.

That's Brian Harman and Justin Thomas.

Given he's in the final group and will know what he has to do, I think Thomas is going to take some beating...

Did you miss? He barely did...

If you are just in and working your way through your kebab, this happened earlier.

A 63 for Justin Thomas.

Bring on the wind!

So they say some strong winds will whip through here on Sunday. Many things could go wrong for the players but boy they're so good they will likely still find magic on the final day.

Not sure about you but I wouldn't mind seeing it look like a scene from that 1990s film Twister. Let's get the ball swirling around like a kite and really see who wants this bad enough.

You heard the man...

Iain Carter

BBC golf correspondent at Erin Hills

Nine players within four shots of the lead. Join us on 5 live, not Sports Extra tomorrow from 21:30 BST.

Fowler form?

Fowler (-10)

Rickie Fowler has been in the Sunday mix up before of course but not always delivered.

Sean Martin from the PGA Tour highlights two particularly bad Sunday's for the American when he's been in the frame.

'Cool day'

There you go, a dream Sunday for Eddie. Both he and Sergio are four under.

Leader Brian Harman, speaking to Sky Sports: "I hit some great golf shots there and had a good plan.

"I've been striking the ball so well and giving myself chances so I'll just try to keep doing what I've been doing.

"I've got my wife and daughter here, I'll spend some time with them now and I'll sleep like a baby tonight.

"Going into tomorrow, I'll definitely think about the mindset I had in winning Wells Fargo a few weeks ago."

Fowler (-10)

Rickie Fowler - 10 under - speaks to Sky Sports: "I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. I've put myself in a good position. I got through the last few holes without my best swings so i'm in a good position and looking forward to it."

More from Tommy Fleetwood, speaking to Sky Sports: "I don't know how I'll feel when I wake up tomorrow but I felt calmer today than yesterday.

"It's going to be new again, being in contention on a Sunday but if I swing it like that again, it's a good sign.

"I felt great today - my long game is my strength and that was great today. We'll just see what happens."

'I played well there'

Fleetwood -11 (68)

Tommy Fleetwood, speaking to Sky Sports: "It was uncharted territory for me, leading a major but from the minute I teed off I felt comfortable in my swing.

"I hit good iron shots early on and good drives so I never really felt it was a struggle and didn't miss many shots.

"It's hard when you're out there but when I look back, I'll think, 'I played well there.'"

"On the last hole I was miles out on the fourth shot and could've been looking at a seven or an eight but I hit a great chip to get a six.

"Going off there with a six was massive. If I'd dropped more shots it would've left a very sour taste."

An unbelievable day of play

Jay Townsend

BBC Radio 5 live at Erin Hills

An unbelievable day of play that we got to witness - historical. Certainly for Thomas and for the whole field with how low the scoring was.

I'm still suprised at how many guys are bunched up there, certainly not like it was at the halfway point of this third round. Some are pulling away but there is a lot of players that are going to have the chance to win in tomorrow's windy conditions.

Who can handle it?

Koepka

Here is the aforementioned "beast".

Will he land a first major? He's some player. Looking at that leaderboard it's hard to guess who will keep their nerve.

Who are you picking? Brian Harman won the Wells Fargo PGA Tour title in May. He has some form. Justin Thomas has three wins this season also.

But none have a major. And that is the big cloud hanging over all of them on what will be a pressured Sunday.

High praise indeed

The new generation

Iain Carter

BBC golf correspondent at Erin Hills

It's been a fascinating day, we haven't had the superstars involved but this new generation, all of a similar kind of ilk - Fleetwood, Thomas, Fowler, Koepka, Kim, Reed. These are the guys we are going to be talking about a lot in the coming years.

The lead is one

Harman (-12)

Grey pants, pink shirt, white cap. Hardly an all too eye-catching outfit but Brian Harman's play has been just that on times. His short game and putting have been pin point, making up for a lack of beef off the tee.

He has around 12ft for birdie and a two-shot lead going into the final round of the US Open. He will have dreamed this up as a kid. He sends it, slips past. It's par and he leads by one.

Two shots or one?

Casey (-4 after 18) Harman (-12 after 17)

Brian Harman leads the US Open then and he can maybe even add a stroke to the advantage here on this final hole - a par five. He's in the fairway for two so it's just about taking aim from here. High trajectory, slightly right of the pin line but very solid to leave 15ft for birdie.

Paul Casey is alongside him, three over for the day and he makes par at the last. This Harman putt is key...

Birdie

Koepka -11 (68)

Fittingly, Koepka steps up and joins Fleetwood on 11 under with a birdie on the last for a round of 68. Each had five birdies and one bogey today.

Both were mightily impressive - calm and composed for the most part and although both wobbled at times, they ultimately held their nerve to stay right in the mix for the title tomorrow.

An eye on the Sunday groupings

Jay Townsend

BBC Radio 5 live at Erin Hills

You always want to be in the final group because you control your destiny a little more. But I'd say more important is who you play with. I think a Fowler-Thomas grouping could be good for them.

Bogey

Fleetwood -11 (68)

Well done that man. Tommy Fleetwood keeps his cool to hole a vital bogey putt and drop just one shot to end his torrid time on the final hole.

Koepka (-10 after 17)

Meanwhile, Koepka has an eagle chance at the last...not quite but that should be birdie.

Fleetwood (-12 after 17)

Given what a stomach-churning few minutes it's been for Tommy Fleetwood, where has he found this from?

One woeful chip and a heavy putt, followed by a sublime wedge to give himself a chance of escaping from a nightmare scenario with a bogey.

It was an incredibly difficult shot, barely any green to work with but he pulled it off with aplomb.

Fleetwood (-12 after 17)

Salvage job for Fleetwood. He needs to get up and down in two to get in the final pairing for tomorrow.

Oh no he's completely over-hit his putt from off the front edge. It slides past the hole and needs to pull up...but it just keeps rolling up and over the edge of a ridge and 30 yards down off the green.

Fleetwood (-12 after 17)

Tommy Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood has a challenging chip for his third shot on 18. He can't afford to miss it long or left or the ball will fall off the green.

He can't afford to leave it short either but that's exactly what he contrives to do and the ball rolls back just off the green.

Looked like he was caught in two minds and just didn't hit it enough.

Fowler done

Fowler (-10) Harman (-12 after 17)

Rickie Fowler

Rickie Fowler plays out of the rough to the fairway and then launches a ball over the moon and short of the green. He needs an up and down for par on this par five.

Brian Harman recovers well from his own time in the knee-high grass. He finds the fairway on the par-four 17th and then lands an approach around five feet from the pin. This could be a good save.

To Fowler on 18... in. That's a 68 and a fine day. To Harman... never in doubt. Putting like a machine.

Fleetwood (-12 after 17), Koepka (-10 after 17)

Fleetwood has 298 yards to the flag. Out comes the three wood, he's aiming at the front edge of the green and falls just short. That's good though. Solid stuff, Tommy.

Koepka has the power knock it on the green - and does! What a shot. Shades of Justin Thomas. Not quite as ridiculous but still a superb strike.

Fleetwood (-12 after 17), Koepka (-10 after 17)

Fleetwood on the last, finding yet another fairway. Koepka steps up and does the same.

Doubt either of them will quite manage what Justin Thomas did on this hole though.

Fowler trouble, Kim done

Fowler (-10 after 17) Kim (-9) Harman (-12 after 16)

Rickie Fowler is walking with his garden shears ready on 18 as he's pumped his ball into the rough off the tee. That was a hook Floyd Mayweather would be proud of.

Up on the green Si Woo Kim ends the day nine under and that is enough for sixth place. He dropped a couple of shots in his round too.

Brian Harman on the 17th tee. This is 523 yards and a par four so you need to get it out there. That's not good... rough stuff.

Koepka (-10 after 17)

Koepka has practically battered all his putts today but shockingly leaves this birdie chance short on 17.

A tricky short one for par? No worries for Brooks as he knocks it in.

Fleetwood (-12 after 17)

Fleetwood to putt first on 17. Lovely looking effort, it's got a chance...but just drifts wide. An easy par and on to the last.

Harman (-12 after 16)

Brian Harman putting like a dream on 16. He has 70ft to the pin and a nasty-looking two putt needed. That big putter head accelerates through the ball to leave about a foot. Brilliant stuff. If his short stick is this hot tomorrow he will be hard to wrestle off this title...

Koepka (-10 after 16)

And Koepka follows Fleetwood with a near-identical shot, just slightly inside the Englishman's effort.

Fleetwood (-12 after 16)

Right, what can Fleetwood do with his fine drive on 17? Follow it up with a fine approach, of course.

Centre of the green, should be no drama in making it in two putts.

A new breed of winners...

Thomas
.

Fleetwood (-12 after 16), Koepka (-10 after 16)

Tommy Fleetwood has company at the top as he cracks his tee shot on 17.

Unlike Charley Hoffman, no sweat for Fleetwood though as he unleashes another pearler of a drive.

Brooks Koepka follows suit with a quality drive of his own. Nothing but fairway.

Birdie to level...

Harman (-12 after 15)

Brian Harman ties the lead. The Ricky Ponting lookalike has been as steady as they come today. He rolls home his sixth birdie of the day and again, the lead is shared by two men no one would have picked on Wednesday.
