Bryson DeChambeau is one round of golf away from his second major title.

DeChambeau is atop the U.S. Open leaderboard at 7-under heading into the final round at Pinehurst Resort's No. 2 course in North Carolina. His lead could be larger — he carded a double bogey on hole No. 16.

“I gave it everything I had out there today. (Hole No.) 16 was a bit of a bummer,” DeChambeau, who also won the 2020 U.S. Open, said. “You aren’t going to get every shot up and down. You just have to take them where you can. Fortunately, I’ve been doing that pretty well so far this week. Putting brilliantly. Just have to keep that going and continue to hit fairways and greens.”

DeChambeau is three strokes ahead of Rory McIlroy, Matthieu Pavon and Patrick Cantlay, who are all tied in second place at 4-under on the tournament.

Bryson DeChambeau has lead after third round

Bryson DeChambeau is heading into the clubhouse with the solo lead at the 2024 U.S Open after shooting a 3-under 67 in the third round, bringing him to 7-under for the tournament. DeChambeau got off to a shaky start with a bogey on No. 4, but he settled in and shot five birdies in the next 11 holes. Then came hole No. 16. Despite scoring a par at the 16th in the first and second rounds, DeChambeau carded a double bogey. He bounded back instantly with a birdie.

He has a three-stroke lead heading into championship Sunday.

DeChambeau is the first golfer to shoot under 70 in the first three rounds of a U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort's No. 2 course in North Carolina. He shot a 67 on Thursday in the first round, followed by a 69 on Friday and a 67 Saturday.

Bryson DeChambeau's lead shrinks after double bogey 

Bryson DeChambeau had a hiccup on No. 16 (523-yard, Par 4). He recorded a double bogey, his first of the entire tournament, dropping him to 6-under. DeChambeau had the chance to cut his losses with a bogey putt, but he narrowly missed the hole to the left.

DeChambeau is still the solo leader, but his margin has shrunk from four strokes to two.

Rory McIlroy struggles down stretch but still tied for second

One step forward, two steps back for Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy was only two strokes away from the top of the leaderboard with four holes to go in the third round on Saturday, but things started to go left from there. McIlroy bogeyed two of the last four holes to bring him to 4-under for the tournament. He’s now tied for second place and four strokes back of leader Bryson DeChambeau, who is at 8-under.

The four-time major champion is still in striking distance to end his 10-year major title drought on Sunday. He last won the U.S. Open in 2011 and won his last major — the PGA Championship — in 2014.

The first round was McIlroy’s best so far. He shot a 65 and didn’t card a single bogey. He followed that up with a 72 on Friday and a 69 Saturday.

Bryson DeChambeau extends lead 

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That’s what Bryson DeChambeau did on hole No. 14 (461-yard, Par 4). His tee shot went far right and landed in the rough, sending spectators scrambling away from the ball. But DeChambeau rebounded nicely. He found the green on his next stroke and converted a downhill birdie putt to extend his lead to 8-under for the tournament. After the ball went in, DeChambeau gave a spirited fist pump as the crowd applauded. He’s now three strokes ahead of Rory McIlroy, who is in second place at 5-under.

Rory McIlroy moves into second place with birdie

Rory McIlroy is climbing up the leaderboard.

He recorded a birdie on No. 14, his fourth of the third round. McIlroy found the fairway on his first stroke and dropped the ball right next to the marker on his next shot, setting up the birdie opportunity.

McIlroy is now in second place at 6-under for the tournament, trailing leader Bryson DeChambeau by one stroke.

Bryson DeChambeau solo leader after back-to-back birdies

Bryson DeChambeau is in the driver’s seat. The American is the solo leader at the 2024 U.S. Open after picking up back-to-back birdies on hole No. 10 (621-yard, Par 5) and No. 11 (490-yard, Par 4). DeChambeau pumped his fist and fired up the crowd after his birdie putt on 11. He’s now 7-under for the tournament. DeChambeau has shot four birdies and one bogey on the day. DeChambeau is in pursuit of his second major title after winning his first at the 2020 U.S. Open in New York.

Matthieu Pavon’s bogey leads to four-way tie for first place

Matthieu Pavon has picked up his first bogey of the third round. The French golfer narrowly saved par on hole No. 11 (Par-4, 490 yards), but his putt veered just left of the hole. Pavon dropped to 5-under for the tournament and is in a four-way tie for first place with Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau and Ludvig Aberg.

Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau birdies

Bryson DeChambeau and Tony Finau are moving up on the leaderboard. The American golfers moved into a tie for second place at 5-under for the tournament after picking up birdies on No. 7 and No. 9, respectively. DeChambeau and Finau are tied in second place with Ludvig Aberg. They are all one stroke behind the leader Matthieu Pavon, who is at 6-under.

Pavon, Aberg, Finau, tied lead atop leaderboard

Matthieu Pavon and Tony Finau birdied on No. 5, each player's second birdie already in the third round. With that, Pavon and Finau moved into a three-way tie with previous solo leader Ludvig Aberg – who bogeyed No. 4.

Matthieu Pavon keeps pace with Ludvig Aberg

Leader Ludvig Aberg birdied on No. 3 and is now 6-under for the tournament. Matthieu, having birdied his opening hole, came up with another birdie on No. 5 to take sole possession of second place at 5-under.

Rory McIlroy joins the 4-under gang

After making par on the first two holes, Rory McIlroy notched a birdie with a great shot from a bunker on No. 3 to bring him to 4-under overall and in a four-way time for second behind leader Ludvig Åberg.

McIlroy is in pursuit of his first major championship in 10 years.

US Open leader Ludvig Aberg gets started

Entering the weekend atop the leaderboard at 5-under, Aberg began Saturday's third round with a fantastic tee shot that helped him open with a par.

He's one shot ahead of Pavon, Finau and DeChambeau, all 4-under overall.

Matthieu Pavon up to second with opening birdie

Matthieu Pavon got off to a good start Saturday with a birdie on the first hole, getting him to 4-under and a four-way tie for second place with Patrick Cantlay, Bryson DeChambeau and Thomas Detry.

David Puig momentum halted by bogey

David Puig opened Saturday's round with three birdies in the first five holes, but bogeyed on No. 6 to halt his rise up the leaderboard. The 22-year-old sits at 2-over for the tournament.

Brooks Koepka's double-bogey sets him back

Rory McIlroy talks Pinehurst

The precision with which Pinehurst No. 2 requires was on display again Friday, when Rory McIlroy pulled off a one-putt for the ages, putting through the green on the 17th hole, but then chipping in.

After he posted a 72 to slip back in the pack a bit McIlroy discussed the difficulty that the course presents.

“It just requires a lot more thought,” he said. “A little more consideration to everything that you’re doing. Very conservative strategy off the tee. And because most of us are playing conservative off the tee, with irons you can aim down one side of the fairway or the other to try to give yourself better angles to these pins.”

Bryson DeChambeau ‘had a wizard’s day’

Bryson DeChambeau, the 2020 U.S. Open champion, followed up his opening-round 67 with a 1-under 69 on Friday, the first time he’s shot back-to-back under-par rounds at the U.S. Open since the second and third rounds in 2021.

In doing so, he shared the clubhouse lead with Thomas Detry during the second round with a 36-hole total of 4-under 136.

He’s now sat inside the top 10 after nine of the last 10 rounds at a major – the exception being the first round of the PGA Championship, where he eventually finished second.

It didn’t hurt that DeChambeau holed several clutch putts, totaling nearly 130 feet on Friday.

“He’s solved the riddle on these greens,” said NBC’s Brandel Chamblee. “He’s had a wizard’s day.”

2024 US Open purse

The U.S. Open had the largest purse of the four men’s major championships in 2023, and that amount is going up in 2024.

Mike Whan, the CEO of the United States Golf Association, announced Wednesday the purse for the 2024 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 was going up to $21.5 million, a $1.5 million increase from last year. In addition, the winner will take home $4.3 million, up from $4 million in 2023.

The winner of the first U.S. Open in 1895 took home $150.

In addition, every player will make at least $10,000, as players who miss the cut will pocket that amount.

At the Masters, the purse was $20 million with $3.6 going to the winner, Scottie Scheffler. The PGA Championship had a record purse of $18.5 million, with Xander Schauffele taking home $3.33 million.

24-year-old Ludvig Aberg in the lead entering Saturday

Ludvig Aberg claimed a one-stroke halfway lead in a dream debut U.S. Open on Friday but said his biggest "pinch-me moment" at Pinehurst might be playing alongside the stars he has long admired.

The tricky North Carolina course humbled some of the biggest names in the sport this week but could not slow down the 24-year-old Aberg, who had three birdies and two bogeys for a one-under-par 69 to reach 5-under on the week.

"Sometimes I have to stop for a little bit and think about how fortunate I am to be able to do this at this level," said Aberg.

"To be able to play these tournaments, to be able to play with the guys that I've watched on TV for such a long time is definitely a pinch-me moment."

Tiger Woods misses US Open cut: ‘May or may not be’ his last one

This “may or may not be” Tiger Woods' last appearance at the U.S. Open, the three-time champion said after he missed the cut on Friday at Pinehurst.

“I’ve only got one more tournament this season,” Woods said, referring to July's Open Championship, the last remaining golf major. “Just one more event and then come back, whenever I come back.”

He added, “As far as my last U.S. Open championship, I don’t know when that is. It may or may not be.”

He won the U.S. Open in 2000, 2002 and 2008.

Woods, who shot a 74 on Thursday, had four bogeys and one birdie for a 73 on Friday. He finished 7-over on the tournament and missed the cut into the weekend by two strokes.
