Stewart Cink grabbed sole possession of the clubhouse lead at the Farmers Insurance Open with a bogey-free 8-under-par 33-31=64 on the North Course at Torrey Pines.

Cink has five top-15 finishes in 11 appearances at this event, so he's on the inside track to pad that total. He split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies. Surprisingly, only one of those par breakers dropped in on a par 5 (the first hole, his first of the round). Five of the seven that followed fell in on par 4s. Apples-to-apples comparisons of scores aren't relevant until everyone in the field logs one round on each course, so the six-time PGA TOUR winner will have his work cut out on Friday at Torrey Pines South.

Chase Seiffert lapped the field at today's open qualifier for the Travelers Championship, tossing together a 9-under-par 33-30=63 to beat the next closest finishers by three strokes.

Low scores are pretty common for these Monday qualifiers but it's somewhat rare to see someone lap the field like this. The Florida State alum circled eight birdies and an eagle to offset a lone bogey. Seiffert is 3-for-4 in his PGA TOUR career including a T43 at this event last year (also cracked that field through Monday Q). The 26-year-old has made just one start during the 2018 calendar year, a T48 at the Rex Hospital Open (Web.com Tour). Three others punched their ticket at today's qualifier: James Driscoll, Andrew Svoboda, and Rick Lamb. They all posted rounds of 6-under 66 and then escaped a 4-for-3 playoff that included Peter Ballo.

Prior to the start of the week, Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from this week's Travelers Championship.

The South African hit a bit of a mid-season slump with back-to-back missed cuts at the Wells Fargo Championship and THE PLAYERS. He's responded with finishes of T5, T13, and T16 since then. That last one came at Shinnecock Hills last week so there is no reason to expect any injury here. These pre-tournament change of hearts happen all the time, but gamers should make sure they remove him from all weekly lineups.

Playing out of the final twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 43 Daniel Berger back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, falling five places to a season-best T6 on 6-over 286, five back of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68, and dropping to 1-for-3 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

After opening with 76-71 and day-tying-low 66, the 25-year-old co-led with three others and found 12 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. He conjured two birdies at holes 5 and 10 (30'3"), overshadowed by five bogeys at 2, 3, 6, 15 and 17. The FSU product posted a commercial 1.909 putts per GIR with 32 total putts, but did knock home two par-savers from between 10 and 16 feet. For the week, he totaled 11 birdies against 15 bogeys and one double. This was Berger's fourth U.S. Open, third cash and first top 25. It was his 12th overall major, second top 25 and second top 10, bettering a T10 at the 2016 Masters. Berger improves to 13-for-16 on the season with eight top 25s and one top 10, brushing aside a pair of T11s.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 38 Tony Finau backed up with a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, falling four spots to solo 5th on 5-over 285, four in arrears of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68, and drops to 0-for-1 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

This is a career best in nine majors for the 28-year-old, previously T10 two times, most recently at this year's Masters. It was his third U.S. Open, second top 25 (T14/2015) and first top 10. Playing out of the final twosome with Daniel Berger (73), it could've been a T3, but walked off with double bogey-6. After kicking off in 75-72 and day-tying-low 66, the Utahan co-led with three others and hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.727 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. He circled five birdies at holes 5, 8, 9 (16'2"), 11 (26'11") and 14, outbalanced by five bogeys at 2-4, 7, 12 (3-putt from 26'10"), and the double. For the week, Finau totaled 17 birdies, No. 1 in that stat, versus 14 bogeys and four doubles. He improves to 16-for-19 on the season with 12 top 25s and six top 10s, first individually since the Masters.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson birdied his final hole to salvage an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to finish up on 3-over 283, dipping two spots to solo 3rd, two shy of tying competitor and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.

The 33-year-old, who takes over the top spot in the FedExCup standings, was looking to become the first player ever to win a TOUR event and the U.S. Open the following week. He gave it a good run, leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds. After opening in 69-67-77, the Coastal Carolina product co-led with three others, including Koepka. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR with 35 total putts. Johnson circled four birdies at holes 5, 8, 15 and 18 (from 12'11"), cancelled by four squares at 7, 11 (3-putt from 33'8"), 14 (3-putt from 72'9") and 17 (3-putt from 61'7"). For the week, he totaled 13 birdies against 14 bogeys and one double. This was Johnson's 11th U.S. Open, sixth top 25 and fifth top 10, first since his win in 2016. Overall, it was his 36th major, 20th top 25, three straight, and 15th top 10, second straight after T10 at this year's Masters.

World No. 13 Patrick Reed carded a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open for a four-day tally of 4-over 284, up three spots to solo 4th, three adrift of overnight co-leader and eventual champ Brooks Koepka.

Looking to become just the seventh player to win the Masters and the U.S. Open in the same year, the 27-year-old needed birdie on 18 to match clubhouse leader Tommy Fleetwood on 2-over, but 3-jacked from 36 feet for bogey. Other than his final place on the board, it didn't matter as Koepka shot 67. After kicking off with 73-72-71, the 27-year-old began T7, three back. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.67 average putts with 30 total putts. The Texan went out in 4-under, outpacing bogey-5 at 9 (3-putt from 35'10") with five birdies at 1-3, 5 (from 18'10") and 7, but came home in 2-over, outbalancing birdie-3 at 15 with three squares at 11, 12 and 18. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies against 20 bogeys. This was Reed's fifth U.S. Open, third top 25 and first top 10 (T13/2017). It's his ninth top 25 in 19 majors, third top 10, third straight, and third straight top 5.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 9 Brooks Koepka, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, enjoyed a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open Championship for a 72-hole aggregate of 1-over 281, good for a one-shot win over Tommy Fleetwood, his third PGA TOUR title in 95 events (94 pro), and his second straight U.S. Open victory, joining his come-from-behind, four-shot win last year at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. UPDATE: Koepka improves to 1-for-3 as 54-hole leader/co-leader and jumps 5 spots to a career-high 4th in OWGR.

This was the 28-year-old's 18th overall major, 13th top 25, 11th straight, seventh top 10 and second win. It was his sixth U.S. Open, fifth top 25, fifth straight, and third top 10, becoming just the seventh player in history to win back-to-back U.S. Opens, first since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. The FSU product improves to 7-for-8 on the season with four top 25s and three top 10s, bettering a pair of runner-up finishes. After kicking off with 75-66-72, he co-led with three others, including playing competitor Dustin Johnson. The Floridian hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.56 average putts with 28 total putts. He squared three bogeys at holes 6, 11 and 18, camouflaged by five birdies at 2 (from 20'7"), 3, 5, 10 and 16. Koepka also saved par at 14 from 8'4" and saved bogey at 11 from 12'6". For the week, he tallied 14 birdies versus 11 bogeys and two doubles.

Playing out of the 14th-to-last twosome, World No. 12 Tommy Fleetwood, a four-time winner on the European Tour, painted a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to post 2-over 282, up 21 spots on the live leaderboard to T2, good for the low round of the day and week thus far, and setting a new U.S. Open course record at Shinnecock Hills GC, previously 65. UPDATE: With play completed, Fleetwood finished solo 2nd, one short of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.

The Englishman, looking to become the first player to record a 62 in U.S. Open history, missed birdie on the 72nd hole from 8'7". He also missed birdie tries on the 70th and 71st holes from 12'11" and 19'6", respectively, but still becomes just the sixth player to card a 63, first since Justin Thomas' 9-under version in 2017/R3 (Erin Hills). This was the 27-year-old's 12th overall major and third U.S. Open with a best of solo 4th last year. His career best in 33 TOUR events is 2nd at the 2017 WGC-Mexico, and this is a new career low in 98 rounds, previously 66 (x6). The first-time TOUR member began T23, six back, and hit 13 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, erasing a lone bogey-5 at 9 with eight birdies, including four straight at 12-15. He posted 1.563 putts per GIR with 27 total putts.

World No. 17 Henrik Stenson stalled out to a 4-over-par 34-40=74 in the third round of the 118th U.S. Open to arrive at the three-quarter pole on 5-over 215, down two places to solo 6th, two adrift of a foursome of 54-hole leaders.

This is the 42-year-old's 49th major with one win, the 2016 Open (Royal Troon), where he was the 54-hole leader by one, shot 8-under 63 to win by three. It's his 12th U.S. Open with a best of T4 in 2014. After kicking off in 71-70, the Orlando resident began T4 on 1-over, five shy of leader Dustin Johnson. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, posting 1.67 average putts with 30 total putts. The Swede went out in bogey-free 1-under, circling birdie-4 at 5 (from 12'2"), and actually led the tournament thru eight holes on level-par. He came home, however, in birdie-less 5-over, squaring five bogey-5s at 10, 13-15 and 18. Stenson missed two back-nine birdie tries at 11 and 12, both from inside of 10 feet, but did ram in a par-saver at 6 from 21'9". He'll play out of the third-to-last pairing again in R4.
Jun 16 - 8:32 PM

Past champ and World No. 3 Justin Rose patched together a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the third round of the 118th U.S. Open for a three-day total of 4-over 214, down one place to solo 5th, one short of a four-ball of 54-hole leaders.

After opening with 71-70, the 2013 winner at Merion GC began in a five-way logjam on 1-over, five back of leader Dustin Johnson. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he striped 13 (of 14) fairways and conjured six greens in regulation, recording 2.000 putts per GIR, 1.500 average putts and 27 total whacks with the flat stick. The 37-year-old carded two birdie-3s at holes 3 and 15, outbalanced by five squares at 8, 9, 10, 16 and 18 (3-putt from 29'2"). Of the final three groups in R3, he did manage to post the best round. Rose will play out of the third-to-last pairing again in R4, again with Henrik Stenson.
Jun 16 - 8:16 PM

First-round co-leader and second-round leader Dustin Johnson coughed up a 7-over-par 41-36=77 in the third round of the 118th U.S. Open, now sharing the 54-hole lead with Daniel Berger (66), Tony Finau (66) and defending champ Brooks Koepka (72) on 3-over 213. UPDATE: This is Johnson's 17th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 233 events, previously 9-for-16 converting. It's also his fifth of the season in 12 starts (2-for-4).

After kicking off with 69-67, the 2016 champ began with a four-shot lead over two players. Playing out of the final pairing with 18-hole, co-leader Scott Piercy, who shot 79, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.077 putts per GIR with 38 total putts. The World No. 1, who had just four bogeys thru 36 holes, ate six of them today, along with double bogey-5 at hole 2, three of those blemishes 3-jacks, the last of which came at the 18th from 16'9", dropping him out of the final pairing in R4. The 33-year-old, last week's winner at the St. Jude as 54-hole leader, mustered just one birdie-2 at 11 from 7'5". He'll play with Koepka out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday.
