Jusitn Thomas takes early lead at US OpenSports | 17 Sep 2020 11:26 pm
Justin Thomas has moved into the lead of the U.S. Open with three straight birdies while making the turn to drop to 4 under par.
Thomas sank a 9-foot putt on No. 11 to pull ahead of amateur Davis Thompson, who had been out to the early lead. The University of Georgia All-American bogeyed No. 13 to fall to minus-3. No amateur has won the U.S. Open since Johnny Goodman in 1933.
Thomas’ best finish in the U.S. Open was a tie for ninth in 2017. He won the PGA Championship that year for his only major victory.-AP
