A whipping wind and dry conditions at The Country Club are sending scores soaring early in the third round of the U.S. Open.
The field was a combined 103 over par shortly after 2 p.m. -- with only three golfers in the red. Co-leaders Collin Morikawa and Joel Dahmen don’t tee off until 3:45 p.m. They were minus-5 through 36 holes.
Will Zalatoris was one of the few making birdies on Saturday morning, knocking in a 40-foot putt for birdie on the second hole and just missing another from 30 feet on No. 3.
He sank a 15-footer for birdie on No. 4 to improve to 2 under for the day and 3 under for the tournament.
Zalatoris is looking for his first major championship. He finished second at the Masters last year, and was the runner-up at this year’s PGA Championship.
