The U.S. Open heads into the final round with three leaders and a bunch of scary lurkers

Henley, with a steady, beautiful, four-birdie, four-bogey, 10-par 71 to add to his opening 67 and his second-round 70, ventures into ground he has never seen in his first 32 years of life in Georgia (childhood) and South Carolina (residence), leading the U.S. Open heading into Sunday. “Yeah, I mean, things always happen kind of when you least expect them a little bit with golf,” he said, “like right when you kind of stop pressing and start searching for your game.” Hughes, with an eagle putt from near Canada on No. 13 and four pars and a birdie from there for a 68 worth savoring, also travels the uncharted dating all the way back to childhood in Ontario (the one in Canada). “You get goose bumps thinking about it,” he said, “so I know I’m going to be nervous tomorrow.”
