5 things to watch for on Sunday at the US Open

After recent major victories for Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia, many would view Fowler as the best player in the world without a major title. He drove a green with a 3 wood, and almost put it in the hole.

"I still have a chance if I can score well (on the final day Sunday)". "Oh gosh, Jimmy, be good", he said to caddie, Jimmy Johnson, when the ball was in the air, and it was close to ideal.

Scottie Scheffler attends Texas, so there is some rivalry to this low amateur battle, and he's now at -2.

Thomas will be in the final pairing with leader Brian Harman, vying to be the first left-handed champion.

Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood were one each shot behind.

It was a much different scene than Saturday, when Thomas matched a major record with a 63. At Erin Hills, all types of players are thriving.

The lead, however, belonged to Harman, who closed with two birdies and three tough pars. It's more in line with what Johnny Miller thinks of the U.S Open, but the important thing to remember is that Johnny Miller is wrong.

The wind at Erin Hills is finally expected to pick up for Sunday's final round, which could put a halt to all the record-setting scoring that's made the U.S. Open leaderboard look more like one at a regular PGA Tour stop. There were 18 rounds in the 60s on Saturday.

Fowler fell away badly after starting the final round of this year's Masters just one off the pace and belief will surely be key for a player who has regularly contended in majors without taking the prize.

Fresh off his record-breaking third round, Justin Thomas is tumbling down the leaderboard at the U.S. Open.

All statistics via the U.S. Open's official website. By the end of a wild and wide-open Saturday, five players were double digits under par.

Fleetwood had been tied for the lead after birdies on the first, eighth, 12th, 14th and 15th, only to bogey the last after following up a poor pitch by putting his birdie attempt off the green.

Furyk reached 10-under 200 with a 67 in the third round at Olympia Fields, giving him a three-shot lead over Stephen Leaney of Australia.

"It's going to be a really cool day for someone tomorrow", said Fowler, who has posted six top-10 finishes in majors during his career, including a second place finish at the 2014 US Open. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".

"This is my first time in contention in a major, so whatever happens I'll be doing my best and seeing how well I can finish".

"From the minute I teed off I felt comfortable in my swing, and the further I got into the round the better I felt".

If his hot pink trousers were not enough, Thomas finished in style. "Whether that was two back, two up front or tied for the lead - let's go".
