Winged Foot might have been for the taking in round 1 on Thursday, but since then few players have made a fist of it at this year’s US Open. You can certainly add Matthew Wolff’s name to that list, however. On Saturday, a day typically deemed ‘moving day’ on the tour, he took a big step toward winning the major with a ridiculous showing.
He would shoot a -5 65 on the day, propelling him from even in the tournament to -5 and two shots ahead of Bryson DeChambeau. In just his second, yes second, major ever at the tender age of 21. Besides Wolff and DeChambeau, only one other player- multiple time major winner Louis Oosthuizen at -1- is under par after three rounds. In fact, only three others sit at even par entirely, showing you just how much the course showed its teeth as we head into Sunday’s final and decisive round in New York.
