US Open golf 2020: third round – live! | Sport

It’s “moving day” at Winged Foot! But after a second day in which the grand old course left many a golfer physically and mentally shot, those who are still in contention will be happy to stand still today. Only three players shot under par on day two and only one of them – Bryson DeChambeau (-3) – could be said to have attacked the course with any success. His refreshingly aggressive attitude led to five bogeys, five birdies, an eagle and six pars. Bryson is well-known for his epic breakfasts. Let’s hope he’s gone large this morning so we get more of the same today.

He’s not the leader, though. That honour (or curse) belongs to Patrick Reed. The man others love to hate has been in fine form around the greens. And a nimble short game is essential with pin positions that are often downright brutal. Justin Thomas could not repeat his first day form on day two, but he is still in contention after rallying late to add 73 to his ridiculous 65 on Thursday. Along with Harris English and Rafa Cabrera Bello, he starts on -2.

Bubba Watson (+1) shot 69 yesterday and a repeat of that fine round could make him a contender. John Rahm has been consistent over both days and you can go as far down as +3 to spot a potential winner on Sunday. Especially if the trophy is held aloft by a player with a score between evens and -2, which is likely. Dustin Johnson has been there and done it all before. And Rory McIlroy is still not out of it despite flailing somewhat yesterday.

Weather: it’s going to be dry and sunny but, like yesterday, it will be a little gusty at times (10mph-13mph). Yikes!
