First came to the Travelers Championship roughly 25 years ago and have covered it for nearly a decade. Have never seen crowds like this, especially following Jordan Spieth's group for the front nine of Round 3 on Saturday. If the PGA Tour was debating if their rule about having pros play different tournaments was a good one, this photo speaks volumes.

World No. 3 Rory McIlroy nearly missed the cut Friday at the Travelers Championship and spoke about the challenges ahead ... before he knew if he'd be playing 36 more holes at TPC River Highlands. (He is.)

Rory McIlroy was on the cut line Friday afternoon at the Travelers Championship, his ball resting in the fairway just 105 yards from the final hole. He took out a wedge, aimed at his target -- and hit it 63 yards into the right rough. "My right foot completely came out from under me," he later explained. "It was weird. As soon as I started down, I just felt it and I couldn't stop. ... Not a very nice shot to finish with." He bogeyed the hole, but in his first career start at this event, quickly received a reprieve. As he moved down on the leaderboard, the cut line moved with him. McIlroy will enter the weekend eight strokes behind leader Jordan Spieth, but did avoid missing a second consecutive PGA Tour cut for the first time in five years.

India's Anirban Lahiri improved by 10 shots (73 to 63) from Round 1 to Round 2 at the Travelers Championship on Friday. His 63 is his lowest in his PGA Tour career. Lahiri is coming off a T-2 finish in his most recent start at Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament earlier this month.

Veteran caddie John Wood issued this statement about the split of Phil Mickelson and Jim "Bones" Mackay.. "Along with being great friends to me and so any others on tour, Phil and Bones have set the standard for player/caddie relationships. They more than any other partnership showed what was possible in terms of working together for a common goal. They were a team in the truest sense of the word. Bones is a mentor to many, and looked up to almost singularly amongst the caddie ranks for his counsel and professionalism. Phil has done more behind the scenes that benefitted not only Bones, but all caddies. Things no one will ever know about and that he would never take any credit for. Theirs was a partnership we all aspire to. I know I'll miss those on course discussions more than anyone. Always poignant, interesting, educational, insightful and above all else entertaining. They showed better than any other team how decisions are arrived at under the microscope and under extreme pressure. I would just want to tell them both congratulations on an amazing 25 year run."

He's only got two holes left, but England's Tommy Fleetwood has plenty to play for here at the U. S. Open. Fleetwood is currently alone in fourth place and the top four players and ties get into the Masters next year. He played his first Masters this past April, where he missed the cut.

In honor of the late Arnold Palmer, the USGA on Sunday handed out this replica pin from the 1960 U.S. Open that The King won at Cherry Hills.

There's still a bunched leaderboard at the U.S. Open, but one thing is virtually certain: We'll have a first-time major champion for the seventh straight major today. The closest major winner to the current lead is Masters champion Sergio Garcia -- and he's eight shots back.

Brian Harman, the 54-hole leader at the U.S. Open, played the first two holes of the final round about as bad as he could, missing both fairways and struggling just to post pars. After making a 360-degree birdie putt on No. 3, he's back tied for the lead at 13 under with Brooks Koepka.

What's on the line Sunday at the U.S. Open? Sure, golf immortality as a major champion, but a hefty $2.16 million to the winner is a nice bit of change. Here's the rest of the purse breakdown for the 66 pros who made the cut.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

As Brian Harman tees off in the final round of the U.S. Open, it is interesting to note that he is playing in just his eighth major championship and had missed five cuts in his previous seven, including all four in 2015. This is also the first time in three appearances that he's made the cut at a U.S. Open.

Rickie Fowler, next to coach Butch Harmon, gets ready for the final round of the U.S. Open here at Erin Hills. Fowler starts Sunday in fifth place, 2 shots behind 54-hole leader Brian Harman.

The USGA already has an oops-a-daisy during the final round of the U.S. Open. The pin sheet originally given out in the first tee had the wrong hole location for the 13th hole. Pic on the left is the incorrect (32/7R). The correct location is the pic on the right (21/9L). I asked Keegan Bradley's caddie when they brought the correct sheet out to their group (which included Jordan Spieth) on the 5th hole. They were the fifth group to tee off on Sunday morning.

Lee Westwood's golf ball was just moved by a gust of wind on the second hole's green! Today is the final round of the U.S. Open being played at Erin Hills. A USGA Rules official standing next to the green saw the incident and Westwood was able to play the ball without a penalty.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

This promises to be a far different day at Erin Hills. Not only is it cooler, with the temperature expected to top out in the low 70s, but the wind is howling. That is the real defense here and it should make for a very interesting final round of the U.S. Open. Look for some big numbers and even more stress.
