The US Open will continue to play over the weekend on Saturday, but it will only get tougher for the 62 golfers who made the cut. That says a lot when you consider that the cutting line at Winged Foot Golf Club 6 was over.
Keep the following in mind: only six golfers have a score below par for Saturday’s competition, while only five have a score below par. That’s how difficult this course is, and the USGA certainly hasn’t made it easier by hosting this major.
Nevertheless, in the first two days of the competition we saw many excellent golf courses, also from competitors who are no longer in the field. Whether it’s beautiful approach shots, lag putts that turned into improbable birdies, or eagles hit by the fairway, there were many highlight shots at the US Open 2020 that were worthy of the role.
Golfers will likely need a few more of those incredible strokes this weekend if they want to keep playing, if they want to fight for the championship. Effective immediately, Patrick Reed is the sole owner of the No. 1 position at 4 under par, followed by Byrson DeChambeau, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Justin Thomas at 2 under par.

US Open updates, highlights from the third round on Saturday
2:11 pm: This is the football equivalent of hitting a ball 20 yards and then bouncing it another 30 yards.
2:55 pm: Zach Johnson puts another eagle on the board on the ninth par-5, but not much.
1:29 pm: This will work your way back towards par.
1:21 pm: From the rough into the hole.
12:51 pm: Sungjae Im scores the first birdie on the eighth hole and from a precarious position:
12:44 pm: Count them: 1-2-3-4.
12:36 pm: Some early morning highlights.
12:32 pm: Catastrophe.
12:10 pm: Staying at eye level in this place in this tournament is nothing to turn your nose over.
Noon: Brian Harman with the incredible bunker shot. It is this game that sets these golfers apart from those who couldn’t make the cut.
11:50 am: Shane Lowry would undoubtedly have preferred the eagle, but preparing for a very doable birdie isn’t a bad consolation.
11 clock: Lucas Herbert with the excellent wedge to get into the hole – that is extremely difficult in the rough with such a steep bank.
10:50 am: An excellent hole-out from Patrick Cantlay:
