It Was Not an Easy Day at Chambers Bay
It was not an easy day at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.
Utahns Daniel Summerhays and Tony Finau, after getting off to such a great start in the first two rounds of the tournament, stumbled out of the gate in the third round.
Summerhays bogeyed the first three holes, made two pars, and bogeyed the next two holes and the cameras weren’t interested in him the rest of the day.
Tony Finau also bogeyed out of the gate, but steadied himself and stayed within camera range with four straight pars, and then he double bogeyed the sixth hole and the cameras went looking for greener pastures, of which there was none—not at Chambers Bay. It is a wonderful golf course, but doesn’t show well on television.
Summerhays ended up with an eight over par 78 and dropped 30 rungs on the leader ladder. Finau hung around and finished with a 74 and is still in the top ten going into the final round Sunday.
There are four tied for the lead at four under par including Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Branden Grace, and Dustin Johnson. Back three shots from the leaders are Louis Oosthuizen, Cameron Smith, Shane Lowery, and J.B. Holmes.
