Hello and welcome
To our live coverage of the final round of this year’s US Open, which looks all set for a thrilling conclusion – with England’s Matt Fitzpatrick within touching distance of the biggest win of his career to date.
The Sheffield-born golfer is chasing his first major and, level with Will Zalatoris at the top of the leaderboard on four under par, he is tantalisingly close to that milestone. There are plenty of big names lined up to capitalise if either he or Zalatoris slip up, however, with Jon Rahm one shot shy of the leaders and Keegan Bradley, Scottie Scheffler and Adam Hadwin all two strokes behind.
Rory McIlroy is still in contention, though he is three shots off the pace alongside Joel Dahmen and Sam Burns. He is still hopeful of winning his fifth major, and his first since the US PGA Championship in 2014.
“I’m probably not in as good a position as I wanted to be, but I’m still right in the tournament.,” McIlroy said after the third round on Saturday, where he battled to a 73 despite struggling for extended periods.
“It’s been a long time, eight years since I’ve been able to win one of these things. I still remember the feeling and I want that f eeling again … I’m one great round of golf away from doing it and that’s all I have to focus on. “
Fitzpatrick, meanwhile, hopes that his previous success at Brookline – where he won the US Amateur title back in 2013 – will give him an advantage over his rivals as they scrap it out on day four. “I certainly think it gives me an edge over the others,” he said. “I genuinely do believe that.
“It’s a real positive moment in my career. It kind of kickstarted me. To come back here and play so well again, it kind of just gives me growing confidence round by round.”
