Tiger Woods 'absolutely' confident he can win another major title

You what mate? Jordan Spieth had no idea of new US Open format

The 33-year-old was the only player left under par after another challenging day which claimed the scalps of Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy on Long Island.

His hopes took another blow when he bogeyed the last, moving to one-over-par. Furyk and Reed have been steady enough to outlast most of the field, but need to go low for the first time this week in order to win it all. I feel for the spectators, who are seeing absolute, pure carnage.

Berger and Finau started the third round 11 strokes off the lead, but both shot 66 relatively early in the day and suddenly found themselves in the final pairing for the final round.

"I feel my game is made for championship golf", said the extremely long-hitting Finau, who believes he is developing a complete, all-round game.

The big names who missed this week's cut will bounce back. I did a lot of good stuff.

"Unfortunately, it's just what I've done the last few events; I just haven't putted well", he said.

Lowry, on the other hand, went in the opposite direction as his putter remained ice-cold, adding a 79 to his opening 75 to finish hopelessly outside the cut line on 14-over. At the risk of distracting from the mayhem created by Mickelson and his 81 earlier in the day, I'd say this is exactly what the USGA wanted to see heading into the final round. He had not missed the cut in a major since the 2014 PGA Championship.

"Dustin plays a whole different golf game than I play, so I'm not going to play the guy", Hoffman said.

Berger rolled in birdie putts of 30 feet, 23 feet and 26 feet, finishing with six birdies and flirting with a 65 that would have been the best ever US Open round at Shinnecock.

Just when it seemed Dustin Johnson's runaway lead was to be hauled back by two inspired Englishmen, so the US Open issued its harsh but timely reminder. McIlroy was T109 in driving accuracy, T31 in greens hit in regulation and T19 in putts per green.

It's his fifth missed cut in the big ones since he captured his fourth Major title at Valhalla almost four years ago. As he stepped toward the tee shot, one fan screamed, "Hit a good birthday shot, Phil!"

"I barely made the cut". However, he is 66 in scrambling. Johnson said plenty more during the interview. He followed that up Friday with a rainy masterpiece, a four-birdie, one-bogey 67 to jump out to a three-stroke clubhouse lead at four under par.

"I didn't putt well", said Tiger. Poulter attributed his recent success on the course to a more "relaxed" and "happy" attitude on and off the course and trying to "simplify" everything. He had three double bogeys and one triple for an 83. 17 and 18, then made four more birdies on the front for a blistering 31. His first putt roared eight feet past, and his par attempt coming back burned the edge but didn't drop.

Playing partner Andrew Johnston called it a "moment of madness" but Mickelson, a five-time major champion, insisted it wasn't just a display of petulance.

Rickie Fowler was also another one charging late on Friday afternoon.

The former world number one is playing a full schedule this year after a 2017 spinal fusion fixed a debilitating back problem that largely curtailed his schedule in the previous four seasons.

"I enjoy firing away from pins and having to be conservative sometimes, and just finding a way to get through it", he said. He has not had a top 10 in the U.S. Open since he tied for fourth at Pebble Beach in 2010.

On a dramatic, controversy-filled day at Shinnecock Hills, two players who teed off roughly five hours before the final pairing just kept rising up the leaderboard.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. The U.S. Open lived up to its reputation in the return to Shinnecock Hills.
