DeChambeau Leads by Three as McIlroy Chases US Open Glory at Pinehurst

DeChambeauBryson DeChambeau will head into the final round of the US Open with a three-shot lead after an impressive third-round 67, placing him at seven-under-par. Rory McIlroy, aiming to end his major drought, remains in contention with a 69, tied for second at four-under with Patrick Cantlay and Matthieu Pavon.


Ludvig Aberg, who led at the halfway point, suffered a triple-bogey seven on the 13th, dropping him to two-under alongside former Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama.

DeChambeau, the 2020 US Open champion, has been in excellent form this season, with a sixth-place finish at the Masters and a runner-up spot in the US PGA Championship. “The crowd’s support has been fantastic, and I will continue to feed off them if they keep it up,” said a relaxed DeChambeau, who engaged with fans during his round.

McIlroy, paired with Cantlay for the final round, reflected on the challenge posed by Pinehurst and his desire to add another major to his 2011 US Open and 2014 US PGA titles. “I love the test that Pinehurst is presenting. You’ve got to focus on every single shot out there,” McIlroy said.

Shane Lowry, who made the cut at five-over-par and shot an even-par 70 on Saturday, described the course as “absolute mental torture.” Tom McKibbin sits at six-over after rounds of 74, 71, and another 71, placing him in a tie for 56th.

As the final round approaches, all eyes are on DeChambeau and McIlroy in what promises to be an exciting conclusion at Pinehurst.
