It looks like we’re going to see an amazing finish ahead of the fourth & final round tomorrow in the 2022 US Open Golf at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. There’s another big shift when it comes the front-runners in a race to take home that major championship, with Will Zalatoris and Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick sharing the lead right now in a total of 206 strokes at -4.
Spaniard Jon Rahm isn’t far behind in 3rd at -3 where he’s only one stroke away from overtaking Zalatoris & Fitzpatrick with possible back-to-back US Open majors, despite his sub-par performance today at one over par 71.
Then there’s a mix of elite and outsiders sniffing around this Top 3 in Tied 4th – including Day 1 leader & World No.50 from Canada Adam Hadwin – who bounced back in Tied 4th at two under par 70, as well as World No.47 Keegan Bradley & this year’s Masters winner Scottie Scheffler.
Although Northern Irishman Rory McIIroy began to slip further away from the Top 5 in Tied 7th right now following a poor run today of three over par 73, but he’s still in the mix towards an possibility of going one better following his 2nd place finish from this year’s Masters. He’s currently sits alongside a couple of Americans; World No.9 Sam Burns & World No.130 Joel Dahmen in the same position as McIIroy; Plus, World No.371 Nick Hardy rounds out the Top 10.
And if that isn’t enough, we have our leading Aussie Min Woo-Lee right now in Tied 17th at two over par as he’s only six strokes away from closing in the joint leaders (Zalatoris & Fitzpatrick). He was almost eliminated from the cut at one point in 55th in Round 2 yesterday before Woo-Lee made sensational turnaround today, especially when he scored three birdies on the back nine at one under par 69.
We could see either an outsider or even a first time winner after the final day of the US Open tomorrow, as Australians are right behind Min Woo-Lee – who is on the cusp towards an upset & hopefully emulating his sister Minjee Lee with the men’s major triumph – after she won the women’s edition last weekend.
