The 2022 U.S. Open now has only one round remaining at iconic The Country Club — and the venerable venue is showing why it’s such a special place.
The leaderboard? Stacked with big names. The number of players within five shots of the lead? Sixteen!
What’s in store for Round 4? Here are five things to know for Sunday at Brookline.
Will Zalatoris, in contention at yet another major championship.
This is becoming familiar territory for the 25-year-old, who has posted a top 8 finish in five of the last seven majors. He’s four under par through three rounds — tied with Matt Fitzpatrick at the top of the leaderboard, and ahead of Jon Rahm by one.
It’s a compelling story — especially because Zalatoris has yet to notch a victory on the PGA Tour, despite posting 15 top 10s in 50 events.
Could the national championship be his first?
Matt Fitzpatrick has a certain illustrious history at The Country Club. Nine years ago, he won the U.S. Amateur championship there.
