US Open golf 2022 LIVE: Leaderboard, latest scores and updates

Justin Thomas: It’s sad LIV Golf is overshadowing US Open

The final round of the US Open 2022 is here with Will Zalatoris and Matt Fitzpatrick sharing the lead at -4 at Brookline, while defending champion Jon Rahm is in striking distance just one shot behind.

Blustery, testing conditions have ensured the Country Club has shown its teeth throughout the week, with just nine players under par, including Rory McIlroy, who battled through a torrid third round to remain in contention at -1 despite opening up yesterday with a three over par score for his first seven holes. World No 1 Scottie Scheffler briefly got to -6 when he holed out from 102 yards for an eagle on the eighth, but the American fell away sharply, producing double bogey on the short 11th with two more bogeys following, though the Masters champion is just two back and primed to capitalize should the leaders slip. Among the other names to watch are home favorite Keegan Bradley, a former PGA Championship winner, who is two-under, as is Canada’s Adam Hadwin, and those at one-under and hoping to surge up the leaderboard include Sam Burns and Joel Dahmen.

“I’d be lying if I said I haven’t thought about it [winning]. It would just mean the world,” said Fitzpatrick, who could become the first non-American to win both the US Amateur and US Open. “It’s a special place for me and to go one step further and win a US Open round here would be even more special. The US amateur was one of the biggest achievements in my career and still is, and if I won a major here it would definitely overtake it. My family are in town, I’ve got a couple of friends here as well and the family I am staying with are fun as well, so I’ll have plenty of distractions which will be good with a late tee-time. I’m excited to give myself another chance in a major just a month later, I’m just really proud with the way I played.” Follow all the action from the fourth and final round of the US Open below:

Collin Morikawa had a dreadful day yesterday, carding a 77 after starting in a tie for the lead. He’s back out there now and is level through his opening three holes after missing a makeable birdie putt.

Tarren holes a lovely putt from the fringe at 14 for a birdie. He’s -2 for his round and now up into a tie for 34th. The Englishman, who is ranked No 445 in the world, has only ever had one top 10 finish on the PGA Tour before, and that came in a weakened field at the Puerto Rico Open in March. This is a great performance and comeback after such a disappointing day yesterday.

Patrick Cantlay has endured a bit of a slump by his own high standards this year but the American is up into a tie for 11th after a fine start to his final round. Birdies at 1 and 2 have taken him to +1 and he’s managed to find the green at the tricky 3rd.

Not a great start for Jordan Spieth, who pulled a 10ft birdie putt at the first and then bogeys the second after missing the green short and right at the long par 3.

Thomas couldn’t hole that short one for par at the first either and has slipped back to +4. He will have the chance to make amends at the third, though, after a great blind approach that runs up to the green and settles about 15ft from the flag.

Mackenzie Hughes and Patrick Cantlay are both off to bright starts in their final rounds and are now at +2, six shots back of the lead.

England’s Callum Tarren endured a torrid third round after leading by two shots at one stage on Friday. He’s recovering well today though and is one under through 13 and in a tie for 45th at +6.

Justin Thomas hasn’t had the week he’s wanted, having come into the tournament in such a great run of form.

The PGA champion has just got his final round underway but pulls his approach at the first left and is forced to hit a wonderful flop shot over the greenside bunker. There’s still a bit of work left to save par though. He’s currently +3.

To say Grayson Murray is not a happy bunny out there would be somewhat of an understatement. The American, who is nine over for his round through 12 holes, has laid waste to his wedge.

Despite most of the players out on the course currently struggling, there are still certainly opportunities to go low.

One person proving that is Guido Migliozzi. After birdieing three of his opening five holes, the young Italian has just eagled the par-5 8th with a fine putt from 11ft. He’s now +2 for the tournament which is a very respectable tied-17th.

It’s been a tough afternoon for Koepka’s arch-rival Bryson DeChambeau too. The American is three over for his round. His next outing will, of course, be at the controversial LIV Golf event in Portland in a fortnight’s time.
