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 capitalise should the leaders slip. Among the other names to watch are home favourite 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 surge up the leaderboard include Sam Burns and Joel Dahmen.

“I’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. “It’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:

Here is a look at that spectacular bunker shot on 18.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:50 , Tom Kershaw

There are huge celebrations on the 18th green. Fitzpatrick’s mum and brother congratulate him. His caddie, Billy Foster, is in tears.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:47 , Tom Kershaw

He misses! It looked good all the way but somehow it refuses to catch the left lip.

Matt Fitzpatrick is the US Open champion!

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:46 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick can’t hole it. It’s left on the high side but he’s in for a par. Zalatoris has to hole this birdie putt to take it to a play-off.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:44 , Tom Kershaw

It’ll be Fitzpatrick to go first and, if he can hole this, he will be the US Open champion.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:43 , Tom Kershaw

What a stunning shot from Fitzpatrick! He takes an eight iron, gets it over the lip and the ball stops dead about 20ft past the flag.

Zalatoris goes next knowing only a birdie will do. It’s inside Fitzpatrick’s, more like 15ft, and he’ll have the benefit of a good read.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:40 , Tom Kershaw

It’s Zalatoris to go first at the 18th. He takes the aggressive approach off the tee with a driver and it’s a fantastic fade that just misses the bunkers down the left.

Fitzpatrick steps up for the highest pressure tee shot of his entire career. And he turns it over and it hooks into the bunker down the left! What’s more, he’s quite close to a bit of the face that juts inwards. It’s going to be very difficult to find the green from there.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:36 , Tom Kershaw

Up on the 18th green, Scheffler has a birdie putt from 23ft to tie Fitzpatrick for the lead. It’s a fantastic effort but it just slips past the hole. He’s in the clubhouse at -5.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:35 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris has the line but he leaves it short! He can’t believe it.

Fitzpatrick now has a birdie putt that would give him a two-shot lead down the last but it’s so quick down the slope. He barely touches it and it trickles on the low side for a simple tap-in par.

The Englishman takes a one-shot lead down the last.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:33 , Tom Kershaw

Both Fitzpatrick and Zalatoris are perfectly positioned in the fairway at 17.

Fitzpatrick goes first and hits a fantastic pitch just past the flag. He’ll have 11ft for birdie but it’s straight down the hill after sticking on the bank.

Zalatoris goes next and he does get the backspin off the slope. He’ll go first from 12ft but he’ll have the advantage of going up and across the slope.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:29 , Tom Kershaw

Here’s a look at that stunning tee shot from Zalatoris at 16.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:25 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick lags it nicely to the hole for a tap-in par. Now it’s Zalatoris’s turn. It’s got a bit of right to left but it’s one he should expect to make... and he does! Right in the middle of the hole. What a finish we are having here. Fitzpatrick leads by one ahead of Zalatoris and Scheffler.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:24 , Tom Kershaw

The final group head to the 16th tee. Fitzpatrick just about flies the bunker and gets a decent roll up towards the hole. He’s a good 35ft away from there though and will happily take par.

Zalatoris needs something special and oh boy does he deliver. From 210 yards, he flies it to just 6ft!

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:21 , Tom Kershaw

But here comes Scheffler! After that fantastic drive at 17, he sticks his pitch to around 5ft and he’s not missing a short one this time. That’s a birdie to get within one. Can he birdie the last?

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:17 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris has a good go but the ball dies just to the left of the hole. That’s a tap-in bogey but Fitzpatrick now has the chance to stretch his lead to two... and he makes it! What a fantastic putt. That was almost 20ft away. The Englishman leads by two shots with three holes to play.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:15 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris has an awkward lie in the bunker with his feet above the ball. It’s a decent effort but he’s going to have 27ft just to try and save par. Fitzpatrick will get a good read off his putt too.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:12 , Tom Kershaw

Up at the 17th, Scheffler hits a brilliant drive and will only have around 70 yards to the flag from there. It’s playing as the easiest hole on the course and he urgently needs to take advantage and make a birdie.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:10 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick hits a horrible slice off the tee at 15 but it’s so bad the result is actually rather good. The rough has been trampled down by the spectators, the lie is good and the angle into the green is great. The flag is still 225 yards away but it’s a fantastic shot that flies right at it. He’ll have 19ft for birdie.

Zalatoris leaked his drive right but only marginally. Unfortunately for him, that means the rough is still intact and the ball is really sitting down. He pulls it right trying to gouge it out and he finds the front left bunker.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

23:06 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler finds the green at the par-3 16th and has around 30ft for birdie. It’s a tricky putt and it just dribbles low of the hole. It’s a good par but he still trails by one.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:58 , Tom Kershaw

It hasn’t quite happened for McIlroy today but he’s hanging in there. Back-to-back birdies at 14 and 15 got him to -2 and evoked memories of his stunning finish at Augusta, but he finds the front bunker at 16. He does very well to get up and down though, holing a 10ft right-to-left putt to save par.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:53 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler was playing so well on the front-nine but he’s lacked a spark since those bogeys on 10 and 11. He misses the green at 15 but a cute chip gets him safely up and down. The world No 1 is still only a shot back.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:51 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick goes aggressive with the birdie putt and sends it a good 5ft past the hole.

Zalatoris then leaves his birdie putt high of the hole but that’s a simple par for the American, even if it’s certainly a chance missed.

Fitzpatrick three-putted at the 11th but he holds his nerve this time. The pair head to the 15th with nothing to split them.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:48 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick goes aggressive from the fairway at 14 and lashes a brilliant 3-wood up onto the second tier of the fairway. That went a good 260 yards and skipped past the bunker through such a tight gap.

Zalatoris made the top shelf too and it’s him to go first from 94 yards. That’s a great pitch and he’ll have 10ft for birdie.

Fitzpatrick goes next and only has 70 yards to the flag but it’s a very disappointing effort. He comes up short and is fortunate it doesn’t roll back onto the front half of the green.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:40 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler only has 6ft for birdie at 14 after that exceptional pitch but he gives the slope too much credit and pushes it on the high side of the hole. That’s a huge chance missed for the world No 1 and he knows it.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:36 , Tom Kershaw

What a stunning response from Fitzpatrick! He’s 48ft from the flag with a putt that’s going down and across a huge slope. He’s just trying to lag it to the flag but it trickles down the slope, picks up speed and rattles the middle of the flag. There’s a huge fist pump from the Englishman.

Suddenly the pressure on Zalatoris is huge. It’s far from easy but he was able to get a good read from Fitzpatrick’s putt and the ball just catches the right lip and drops. That was a great save to avoid a two-shot swing. The pair are tied for the lead at -5 with five holes to play.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:32 , Tom Kershaw

That’s a brilliant effort out of a jumpy lie. Zalatoris will have about 10ft to save par.

Up at the par-5 14th, Scheffler misjudged his second and got caught in the rough just before the second tier of the fairway. The lie is poor but the world No 1 plays it wonderfully, pre-empting the lack of spin and the ball rolls up the green and settles well within birdie range.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:29 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris’s line is blocked by a tree and he’s forced to lay up short of the water. It’s still a tricky punch and the ball catches the downslope and runs into the rough. It’ll be a very tricky up and down from there.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:27 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris flares one out to the right and could be in trouble again here.

Fitzpatrick plays it safe and hits it 240 yards to the middle of the fairway. It’s a good 200 yards in from there and he turns his approach over a little and it draws towards the back left corner of the green. It’s on the surface but it’ll be a very tricky downhill putt from there.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:22 , Tom Kershaw

Matsuyama does hole that putt and a 65 is not only the best score of the day but the entire week. The 2021 Masters champion sets the clubhouse lead at -3.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:20 , Tom Kershaw

After being forced to lay up in the fairway, Zalatoris has to try and get up and down from 84 yards. The pitch pulls up a fraction short though and spins back into the fringe. He has a fine effort from there but the ball dies off just at the end and that’s a tap-in bogey for our leader.

Fitzpatrick stands over his putt knowing a birdie will see him regain a share of the lead but he leaves it short. It’s a simple par though and the lead is cut to just one at the top.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:17 , Tom Kershaw

Matsuyama has played brilliantly today. He’s five-under for his round and standing over a long putt for birdie at the 18th. He knows he needs to make it to move to -4 and give himself an outside chance and unsurprisingly the ball sails quite a way past the hole. That’ll be a tricky one to save par and avoid tainting what’s been a fantastic performance.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:14 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris has to hack one out onto the fairway after finding that thick rough at 12.

Fitzpatrick meanwhile is in a great position with 160 yards to the flag. He doesn’t love the approach but it’s still safely on the green and he’ll have a 25ft putt for birdie.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:09 , Tom Kershaw

Here’s that fine birdie putt that’s given Zalatoris the upper hand on this back nine.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:07 , Tom Kershaw

This is far from over though. Zalatoris steps onto the 13th tee with that newfound lead and slices his tee shot into some thick rough down the right. Fitzpatrick goes next and finds the heart of the fairway.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:06 , Tom Kershaw

The final group comes to the short par-3 11th. Zalatoris and Fitzpatrick’s tee shots are almost equal, both settling right of the flag and leaving around 17ft for birdie. It’s the American to go first and he holes it!

Fitzpatrick got a great look at the line but there’s a bit of a rush of blood and his putt dives low of the hole and runs on about 4ft. The return effort lips out. A huge two-shot swing and the US Open is suddenly very much Zalatoris’s to lose.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

22:03 , Tom Kershaw

Now it’s Fitzpatrick who falters! He found the fairway at 10 but it’s a giant par 4 and he still has 200 yards to the pin. His approach catches the front bunker and he misses a 5ft putt to save par.

Zalatoris found the green and had a long look at birdie but is forced to settle for par. That’s still good enough for a share of the lead now though.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:50 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler three-putts at the 11th. It’s only playing 108 yards but the change in elevation is throwing players off and the world No 1’s tee shot settles a good 40 feet past the flag. He’s left with a nervy 5ft putt for par and it lips out!

Fitzpatrick’s lead stays at one shot but it’s now Zalatoris, his playing partner, who is his closest challenger.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:46 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick and Zalatoris both find the fairway at 10.

Up at the 18th, Jordan Spieth taps in for a 74 and ends the tournament at +7. It hasn’t been the 2015 champion’s week.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:42 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick crouches down in disbelief as his birdie putt at the 9th fails to drop. He’s still our new outright leader though after Scheffler failed to get his bunker shot inside 12ft at the 10th and was forced to settle for his first bogey of the round.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:39 , Tom Kershaw

This is some fightback from Zalatoris. He was two-over through his first three holes but a fantastic 17ft putt at the ninth makes it three birdies in the last four and he’s now only one shot off the lead.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:34 , Tom Kershaw

Here’s another look at that brilliant 3-wood from Fitzpatrick to reach the 8th in two.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:31 , Tom Kershaw

And now Scheffler makes a mistake! A huge 321-yard drive found the first cut down the right at 10 and his approach flies long into the back bunker. It’ll be a tricky up and down from there.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:28 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler might be four-under-par for his round but Fitzpatrick is refusing to be blown away. He hits a wonderful drive down the fairway at the par-5 8th, makes it up the false front with his second and a tricky two-putt birdie sees the Englishman retake a share of the lead at -6.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:23 , Tom Kershaw

It’s just not quite happening for McIlroy. He made the birdies he needed on the front-nine but three bogeys undid that hard work and he’s where he started at -1. A good birdie chance misses by a hair at 10.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:16 , Tom Kershaw

It’s been tough going for Rahm so far. The defending champion was furious at himself after pushing his approach into the 7th, leaving himself a good 40ft for birdie. He escapes with a par after a tricky return putt but is still one over for his round and four shots back of Scheffler.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:11 , Tom Kershaw

After seeing his second roll down the false front at the par-5 8th, Scheffler catches his pitch a fraction heavy and can only look on forlornly as the ball comes back to his feet. The next attempt is far better but still leaves 5ft to save par. He holds his nerve and pumps his fist as the ball catches the right lip. The world No 1 remains the outright leader.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:08 , Tom Kershaw

Here’s another look at that wonderful tee shot that set up a birdie at the 6th for Zalatoris.

The American has just produced an even better effort at the 7th and so nearly holes his approach from the fairway. That leaves a tap-in from no more than a couple of inches and, after a dodgy start, Zalatoris is back to -4.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

21:00 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick turns his tee shot over at the 6th and, although the ball just about holds onto the green, he’s left with a horrible 66ft putt across and down the slope towards the front right edge. He does give it a great look but it just slips past the flag and runs on a good 5ft. The return up the hill lips out and that’s his first bogey of the day.

Up at 8, Scheffler catches his second into the par 5 a touch fat and it rolls all the way back down the false front.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:56 , Tom Kershaw

It’s starting to look very much like a two-horse race between Scheffler and Fitzpatrick.

Zalatoris does at least manage to put himself back in the rearview mirror though with a wonderful tee shot at the 6th. That should be a simple tap-in to take him back to -3, however, nothing is ever routine with the American’s dodgy putting stroke.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:53 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick two putts for birdie and retakes a share of the lead.

Scheffler couldn’t get close with his second at the 7th and has to settle for a par. He quickly makes amends with a huge drive down the fairway at the par-5 8th.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:43 , Tom Kershaw

What a shot Matt Fitzpatrick! After seeing Rahm trudge off angrily with a bogey after missing the green at the driveable 5th, the Englishman still goes straight for the big stick and finds the middle of the green. He’ll have 24ft for eagle and will surely rejoin Scheffler at the top of the leaderboard at the least.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:38 , Tom Kershaw

McIlroy’s par putt runs low of the hole and that’s his third bogey of the round. He’s five shots back now and his hopes are looking farfetched.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:37 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler is looking like a man possessed right now. After that fine tee shot at the 6th, he rolls in a 14ft putt up the hill for a birdie. The world No 1 is four under through six! He leads by one.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:35 , Tom Kershaw

Meanwhile, McIlroy’s rollercoaster shows no sign of slowing down. He’s had three birdies and two bogeys in six holes and now pulls his drive into the thick stuff at the 7th. The rough grabs at his club and his approach comes up short and left. The pitch isn’t great from there despite having a fair bit of green to work with and he’ll have another tricky downhill putt to try and save par.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:32 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler hits a lovely tee shot at the 6th and will have another birdie chance there.

Rahm goes for the green at the short 5th but he pulls it badly and will now have a tricky chip off a downhill lie onto a green that is sloping away from him.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:30 , Tom Kershaw

Here’s how Fitzpatrick got his first birdie of the day.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:30 , Tom Kershaw

Dahmen joins the pack at -2 with a birdie at the 7th. There are currently six players at that mark and they’re certainly all in with a chance.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:28 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick has been wonderfully unfazed so far. After birdieing the 3rd, he fizzes a drive straight down the middle at the 4th and is picking up the tee long before his ball lands in the fairway.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:25 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler’s drive catches the front bunker at the short 5th. He takes it a little thin out of the sand though and leaves himself a tricky downhill sloping putt for birdie. He leaves it on the high side and that’s a chance missed for the world No 1.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:24 , Tom Kershaw

McIlroy is refusing to let this go! After bogeying the 5th, he hits a sublime tee shot into the par 3 6th that leaves 17ft up the hill for birdie. He rolls it in and is three shots off the lead.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:22 , Tom Kershaw

Fitzpatrick produces a great response to losing his lead. His view is obscured at the 3rd but that doesn’t matter as he hits a wonderful approach from 180 yards. That leaves the Englishman’s first real birdie chance of the day and he takes it with a wonderful right-to-left sloping putt! He joins Scheffler at -5.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:18 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler is running hot! After back-to-back birdies to start, the world No 1 rolls in a 24ft putt at the 4th to take the outright lead. Next up, the driveable 5th...

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:16 , Tom Kershaw

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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:14 , Tom Kershaw

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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:12 , Tom Kershaw

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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:08 , Tom Kershaw

Zalatoris is the first to crack in the final group. His tee shot 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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

20:04 , Tom Kershaw

Rory McIlroy! After that bogey halted his momentum at the 3rd, a long birdie try at the 4th is travelling 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 nervy one from 5ft to save par. The defending champion rolls it in confidently.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:59 , Tom Kershaw

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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:58 , Tom Kershaw

That’s a gutsy par save from Zalatoris at the 1st. His approach 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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:53 , Tom Kershaw

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

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:51 , Tom Kershaw

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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:47 , Tom Kershaw

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.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:44 , Tom Kershaw

McIlroy hits a high draw off the tee at the 3rd. He’ll have a blind shot into the green but he’ll have a good angle at least from the left side of the fairway.

Scheffler has 14ft for birdie at the second... and it just catches the right lip! What a start from the world No 1. There have been so few birdies at that hole all week but he made it look easy.

He’s got a share of the lead before Matt Fitzpatrick and Will Zalatoris can even tee off.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:41 , Tom Kershaw

Back on the 1st tee, the defending champion Jon Rahm gets his round underway with a perfect drive.

It doesn’t look like we are going to get anyone storming through the field from further back. Hideki Matsuyama is playing nicely though and moves to level par for the tournament with back-to-back birdies at 6 and 7.

Nobody is playing better right now than Guido Migliozzi, though. The Italian has just completed an excellent round of 66 and is up into T17.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:37 , Tom Kershaw

Scheffler rolls in that birdie putt and the world No 1 is just a shot off the lead. He backs it up with a great tee shot at the 2nd and will have another chance there. Things are heating up very nicely in the early stages here.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:36 , Tom Kershaw

Burns’ tee shot at the 2nd found the greenside bunker and he got an unlucky break too with the ball plugging in the face.

McIlroy judges the weight of his 33ft putt to perfection but it just stays high of the cup. That’s still a good par on one of the trickiest holes of the week.

Burns got the benefit of getting a good read and saves par from 15ft. That’s excellent from the young American.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

19:32 , Tom Kershaw

Here’s another look at that McIlroy birdie.

US Open 2022: Latest final round scores

That is a stunning shot from Scheffler and exactly why he’s the world No 1. He hit a steep cut out of the divot and will have just 6ft for birdie. His player partner Hadwin finds the front of the green and has a good chance for a three himself.

McIlroy follows up that opening birdie with a fine tee shot into the heart of the tricky par 3 2nd.

Back at the 1st, Scheffler has caught a bitterly unlucky break as his tee shot finds a divot on the left side of the fairway.

What a start! McIlroy rolls it in from 26ft for a birdie at the first. He’s now just two shots off the lead.

Burns finds the green from the rough and will have an outside look at birdie. McIlroy only has 133 yards in from the semi-rough but he can’t get any closer.

Joel Dahmen shared the lead after 36 holes but started three shots back this afternoon after a 74 yesterday. He has 22ft for birdie at the first but is forced to settle for a par.

McIlroy has never come from behind to win a major before but could today be the day? It’s certainly a fine start with a huge drive that settles in the semi-rough down the right-hand side.

Burns isn’t so precise. His drive is pulled and clips a tree down the left. He gets quite a kind bounce out into the rough though.

Here we go then. Rory McIlroy is about to get his final round underway. The Northern Irishman starts three shots back as he bids to win his first major since 2014. He’s playing alongside Sam Burns, who has already won twice on the PGA Tour this year.

Tarren comes agonisingly close to a birdie at the last but that’s still a fine round of 69 for the Englishman. This week will have done his confidence and ranking points a world of good.

We’ve got to the stage where some of the players teeing off could perhaps muscle their way into contention, although it would take nothing short of a spectacular round.

Seamus Power has holed a nervy 5ft putt for par at the 2nd and he’s just four shots back of the lead. The Irishman is targeting a second successive top 10 finish at the majors after an impressive outing at the PGA Championship last month.

MJ Daffue was the surprise leader at one stage on Friday. The South African endured a horrible day yesterday, tumbling way out of contention with a 78, but a birdie at the last completes a gutsy round of 69 today. He’s T38 as we stand but that could certainly get better rather than worse as this final round unfolds.

It’s been tough going for Xander Schauffele, who was in contention until a 75 yesterday. He’s about to tap in for birdie at the downhill par 3 11th, though, after a magnificent tee shot that settled less than a foot from the flag. That’ll take him to +3.

A nice up and down at the short 4th gets Morikawa to +1. Davis Riley and Sebastian Munoz have also moved to that mark with early birdies.

Marc Leishman has jumped up the leaderboard after back-to-back birdies at 7 and 8. He’s now at +2, where he’s rejoined by Patrick Cantlay, who’s slipped back after a sloppy three-putt at the short 4th.

Collin Morikawa had a dreadful day yesterday, carding a 77 after starting in a tie for the lead. He’s back out there now and is level through his opening three holes after missing a makeable birdie putt.

Tarren holes a lovely putt from the fringe at 14 for a birdie. He’s -2 for his round and now up into a tie for 34th. The Englishman, who is ranked No 445 in the world, has only ever had one top 10 finish on the PGA Tour before, and that came in a weakened field at the Puerto Rico Open in March. This is a great performance and comeback after such a disappointing day yesterday.

Patrick Cantlay has endured a bit of a slump by his own high standards this year but the American is up into a tie for 11th after a fine start to his final round. Birdies at 1 and 2 have taken him to +1 and he’s managed to find the green at the tricky 3rd.

Not a great start for Jordan Spieth, who pulled a 10ft birdie putt at the first and then bogeys the second after missing the green short and right at the long par 3.

Thomas couldn’t hole that short one for par at the first either and has slipped back to +4. He will have the chance to make amends at the third, though, after a great blind approach that runs up to the green and settles about 15ft from the flag.

Mackenzie Hughes and Patrick Cantlay are both off to bright starts in their final rounds and are now at +2, six shots back of the lead.

England’s Callum Tarren endured a torrid third round after leading by two shots at one stage on Friday. He’s recovering well today though and is one under through 13 and in a tie for 45th at +6.

Justin Thomas hasn’t had the week he’s wanted, having come into the tournament in such a great run of form.

The PGA champion has just got his final round underway but pulls his approach at the first left and is forced to hit a wonderful flop shot over the greenside bunker. There’s still a bit of work left to save par though. He’s currently +3.

To say Grayson Murray is not a happy bunny out there would be somewhat of an understatement. The American, who is nine over for his round through 12 holes, has laid waste to his wedge.

Despite most of the players out on the course currently struggling, there are still certainly opportunities to go low.

One person proving that is Guido Migliozzi. After birdieing three of his opening five holes, the young Italian has just eagled the par-5 8th with a fine putt from 11ft. He’s now +2 for the tournament which is a very respectable tied-17th.

It’s been a tough afternoon for Koepka’s arch-rival Bryson DeChambeau too. The American is three over for his round. His next outing will, of course, be at the controversial LIV Golf event in Portland in a fortnight’s time.

Brooks Koepka might have won this tournament twice, but he is enduring something close to a nightmare at the start of his final round.

After a double-bogey at the third, where his tee shot was pulled way left and found the cart path, he is in dire trouble again at the short par-4 5th. His drive found the deep rough short of the green, his pitch then sailed over the back and a three-putt seals another miserable double. He’s at +9 now.
