At one points DeChambeau was leading by four, but struggled at 16th hole

Bryson DeChambeau has a three-shot lead going into the final round of the US Open at Pinehurst, North Carolina. DeChambeau, the 2020 champion, shot a captivating three-under-par 67 on the third day, bringing his total to seven under par.

He was paired with overnight leader Ludvig Aberg but managed to leave the Swede behind with his impressive performance.

DeChambeau displayed a relaxed demeanor throughout the day, engaging with fans, signing autographs, and celebrating his birdies enthusiastically. Despite leading by four shots after the 14th hole, a double bogey on the 16th reduced his lead to three shots.

Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, and Matthieu Pavon are DeChambeau’s closest challengers, each three shots behind at four under par. McIlroy, a four-time major champion, carded a one-under 69, which included bogeys on the 15th and 17th holes, slightly complicating his pursuit of a first major title in a decade.

The final round promises an exciting conclusion, with DeChambeau aiming to secure his second US Open title while McIlroy and others look to mount a challenge.
