Spieth will have two more opportunities to win his third career major this year, beginning at next month's Open Championship.
Brooks Koepka poses with the winner's trophy after his victory at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills on June 18, 2017 in Hartford, Wis. A par on the final hole tied Rory McIlroy's record score to par at 16 under for a four-shot victory.
"So you had to play different shots and the wind is really blustery out there".
"I'm looking forward to my shot at it, I know it's not going to be an easy day, for sure", Fowler said.
A little-known golfer named Brian Harman entered Sunday as the U.S. Open's 54-hole leader at -12, which prompts the question: Who is Brian Harman?
Brooks Koepka made three birdies over his last seven holes for a 68 and joined Thomas one shot out of the lead.
"I've never done this before", Fleetwood said.
Chez Reavie had an incredible round of 65, but he was not the only person to shoot that score with Hideki Matsuyama showing his class and the world number four is just two shots back now - the Japanese player was tipped by the GM tipster before the tournament.
Thomas, 24, has never won a major but gave himself a great opportunity of breaking his duck in Wisconsin with a masterful display. In all, he made nine birdies and an eagle. First he hit a 330-yard 3-wood, then a 300-yard 3-wood that landed on the edge of the green just past a yawning chasm of a bunker, bounced softly, then rolled a mere 8 feet to finish just beside the cup. I think I hit 17 greens today which was just awesome in these conditions.

This will bring the potential for localized flash flooding, perhaps impacting the Monday evening commute. Scattered showers and storms are now forming over western NY and moving towards the Finger Lakes.
Harman, who shared a four-way lead overnight, sat alone atop the leaderboard at 12-under 204 after a third-round 67.
Provided the rain stays away, Brandt Snedeker believes the course will get dry and fast enough to create a little more separation. "I get a lot of experience in the last couple of days", Li added.
Spieth says he asked Ellie on Saturday night what she wanted him to do in the final round of the U.S. Open. His third round featured six birdies and an eagle (par-five 18th) and two bogeys. A lot of them had to come from far back going into the weekend, and it was hard to put together two good rounds.
Paul Casey carded a triple bogey for the second day running but unlike on day two, was unable to bounce back with five birdies in succession. At 9 under is Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim (68).
Cameron Champ was the lowest amateur heading into the final round, but he finished with a 4-over 76 to drop back to even par for the tournament. "I'm looking forward to my shot at it".
And with the tees moved up on the 15th hole to make it reachable, Thomas hit a 3-wood that rolled off the back slope of the green to 6 feet.
The soft, forgiving conditions created opportunity for major movement up the leaderboard for those players willing to take it.
However with strong winds ripping across the exposed, tree-less par-72 layout on Sunday, the odds on another low-scoring day lengthened.
