Brooks Koepka fired a respectable round of 72, two over par on Saturday and is tied with a group of four players at +3 entering the fourth round of the 118th U.S. Open. Daniel Berger, shot a four under 66 on Saturday, tied for the lowest third round which placed him in the final pairing for Sunday. Dustin Johnson who held a four shot lead entering the third round shot a 77 to drop him to +3 for the tournament and Tony Finau played a third round at four under par to give him a share of the lead entering the final round.

Brooks Koepka was a three-time All-American at Florida State and is the defending champion at the U.S. Open. In 2017 he tied a tournament score record of sixteen under par as he cruised to a four stroke victory. He is paired with Dustin Johnson in the second to last group and is set to tee off at 2:13 PM.

Daniel Berger earned All-American status at Florida State in his freshman and sophomore season and he tied for second at the 2013 NCAA Golf Championship as a sophomore before turning professional. His best finish in a major was a tie for tenth at the 2016 Masters and his best finish at a U.S. Open was a tie for 28th in 2014 at Pinehurst. Berger is in the final pairing with Tony Finau and are scheduled to tee off at 2:24 PM.
