Sports

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP)A glance at Saturday’s third round of the U.S. Open at Winged Foot (All times EDT):

LEADING: 21-year-old Matthew Wolff shot 5-under 65 to finish the third round at 5-under 205.

FOLLOWING: Bryson DeChambeau shot even-par 70 to finish two shots behind Wolff.

NOT MUCH COMPANY: 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen is the only other player in the red, at 1 under.

WHAT HAPPENED?: 36-hole leader Patrick Reed still held the lead after nine holes Saturday. Then, he shot 43 to fall into a tie for 11th.

DID YOU KNOW: Wolff is trying to become the first man to win in his U.S. Open debut since Francis Ouimet in 1913. The date of Ouimet’s victory: Sept. 20.

STAT OF THE DAY: The last time two players 23 or younger won majors in the same year was 1921. Bobby Jones (21) won the U.S. Open. Gene Sarazen (20) won the PGA. This year’s PGA winner, Collin Morikawa, is 23.

BAD BREAK: Patrick Cantlay hit an on-target pitch shot on No. 15, that hit the pin, bounced back and rolled down the slope. He had to go back 20 yards to play his next shot, en route to bogey.

BEST PAR: Sungjae Im’s first pitch from in front of the 18th green hit short and rolled back to his feet. His second landed about 12 feet past the hole, then backed down the slope and rolled in for a par.

QUOTABLE: ”Everything.” -Wolff, when asked what was working well Saturday.
