As if the leaderboard isn't crowded enough, four other players are just one shot back..
Charley Hoffman is all by himself on top of the U.S. Open - for now. Open leaderboard right now, you probably wouldn't realize what you're watching. Obviously my game is on when the course is playing tougher.
But the Englishman now has a share of the lead at the U.S. Open.
For the first time since the Official World Golf Ranking began in 1986, Nos. Here's what went down.
And after Haotong Li made a small piece of history Friday by surviving the halfway cut at the U.S. Open, he closed out a frustrating third round with a quadruple-bogey at the par-5 18th on Saturday. He was the polar opposite of the ugly-American stereotype, and he returned home a lot less likely to sweat a bad bounce into the Erin Hills fescue because of it.
The 21-year-old Kim is charging up the leaderboard in the second round of the U.S. Open. And I think with everything so large, your target is larger and your misses get even more extreme.
However, with the overnight rain improving scoring conditions, Reed overcame some testing pin positions to card four birdies and a bogey on the front nine, before firing four birdies in five holes from the 12th.
"The biggest thing about this course is that the fairways are massive", Day said. McIlroy is headed for the Travelers Championship next week in CT, and he has three straight tournaments starting with the Irish Open through the British Open.
Johnson was hitting it so well that he appeared to be safe even when he was on the cut line. McIlroy shot 71 and finished at 5 over after 36 holes despite shooting 4 under on his final six holes.
On Erin Hills' par-5 opening hole, a 608-yarder that played on average to slightly less than par through the first two rounds, Kisner's tee shot settled into a side-hill lie in the rolling fairway. While he won't give any excuses, this beast of a course couldn't have been his first choice for a return to action.
McIlroy has a hectic schedule again.
If Rahm was frustrated on Thursday, he was outright furious on Friday and didn't do much to disguise it.
"I'm not sure when it's going to sink in or when I'm going to realize what I did", Thomas said after his round.
"I know if I get caught up in that it's not going to do any good". Once you open it, it's a complete mess. It's just been trying to figure it out on and around the greens.
"Yeah, I'd say so", he said. Jon Rahm. Justin Rose. I need to practice a little bit and I need to work on my putting mostly.
Thomas also moved into the lead with his putt at 18.
South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen had looked like being the early pacesetter, the former Open champion going to the turn in 32 and picking up shots on the 11th and 15th, only to run up a double bogey on the 17th. Only Rory McIlroy, on his way to victory at Congressional in 2011, has managed a lower score to par through 54 holes than Harman's current number.
Friday wasn't almost as favorable for the world's three-top ranked players, none of whom will move onto the weekend.
However, after dropping another shot on the 15th, Casey regained his composure superbly to birdie the 17th and 18th, the latter being the second longest hole in major history at 676 yards. His search for a second major will have to wait.
Henrik Stenson. Alex Noren.
The performance of the 23-year-old from San Diego has been no less remarkable.
OK, this is his first U.S. Open. Not your typical U.S. Open setup.
