US Open golf 2022 LIVE: Leaderboard and latest scores as Rory McIlroy starts final round

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 rise up the leaderboard include Sam Burns and Joel Dahmen.

β€œI’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. β€œIt’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 am just really proud with the way I played.” Follow all the action from the fourth and final round of the US Open below:

Hadwin holes a wonderful putt at the 4th. He was aiming a good 10ft left of the hole, let the ball die on the slope and it rolls down into the heart of the cup. The Canadian moves to -2.

Meanwhile, while McIlroy faltered at the 5th, his playing partner Burns got a birdie to return to -1.

McIlroy’s pitch is overhit, perhaps scared of catching that false front again, and he leaves himself 15ft to save par. He can’t make it this time and a bogey leaves him back at -1 where he started.

McIlroy pulls his drive at the short 5th. The ball just stops short of the fescue but it’s still a tricky flop shot over a bunker. He judges the distance well but pushes it ever so slightly, the ball rolls past the flag and catches the false front and rolls all the way down. Just like that, a birdie chance turns into a tricky up and down.

Zalatoris is the first to crack in the final group. His tee shot from him came up just short of the green at the 2nd and it’s sloppy from there. He misses from 11ft to save par and drops back to -3.

Rory McIlroy! After that bogey halted his momentum at the 3rd, a long birdie try at the 4th is traveling at pace but just manages to catch the lip of the hole. He’s back to -2 and just two shots adrift.

Meanwhile, at the 2nd, Rahm had a nerve one from 5ft to save par. The defending champion rolls it in confidently.

Denny McCarthy is having a fantastic start. The American, who is playing his first US Open since 2016, has birdied three of his opening six holes and now finds himself just two off the lead.

That’s a gutsy par save from Zalatoris at the 1st. His approach to him found a thick patch of rough to the right of the green but he opens the face and controls the chip brilliantly.

Fitzpatrick found the green and two putts for par.

Up ahead of him, McIlroy has dropped a shot. His view of him was blocked and he pulled his approach into the rough left of the green. His chip from him came up short and he ca n’t save par from 10ft.

Here’s another look at that Scheffler birdie. He’s just lashed a huge drive down the 3rd that splits the two mounds that have obscured most players’ view of the green. The world No 1 is looking in tremendous form.

And now it is the time for Fitzpatrick and Zalatoris. The Englishman, who won the US Amateur Championship in 2013 at this very course, hits a perfect drive down the fairway. That’ll help settle any nerves. Zalatoris follows suit with a high fade that just trickles into the semi-rough.
