"I know one thing, if it happened tomorrow [Sunday] and the result is what I want it to be, then I'd probably have a little different feeling".

"Oh gosh, Jimmy, be good", he said to caddie Jimmy Johnson when the ball was in the air, and it was close to ideal.

Thomas poured that in to become the 29th player with a 63 in a major championship. Because of that you can go out and play some great golf but you have a bunch of guys out there that can play some good golf as well. "It means I have a lot better chance to win the tournament than I did when the day started".

He made the eagle to get his name in the record book Saturday. Regardless of the weather, it didn't take long for the 24-year-old Thomas to understand the significance of his record round.

Now consider that the largest 36-hole comeback in U.S. Open history was 11 shots by Lou Graham in 1975. Thomas capped off his record day on the 667-yard 18th hole at Erin Hills with the prettiest 3-wood he ever hit, stopping 8 feet away on a green where some players struggled to land a wedge. He landed the ball perfectly on the fringe of the green and it rolled just past the hole for a makeable eagle putt. In the hay left of the 12th fairway, he gouged it out with a 9-iron and watched it roll to 10 feet.

While stronger winds are expected on Sunday, Thomas - yet to finish in the top 10 of a major - said the soft greens during the third round helped. "I was just happy that I was the one that was able to take advantage of it today". Chinese prodigy Li Haotong meanwhile is the first golfer from mainland China to ever play in the third round of a major.

"Someone has a very good chance of ending up with their first major tomorrow", Fowler said.
