US Open golf 2022 LIVE: Leaderboard and latest scores from final round

Justin Thomas: It’s sad LIV Golf is overshadowing US Open

The final round of the US Open 2022 is here with Will Zalatoris and Matt Fitzpatrick sharing the lead at -4 at Brookline, while defending champion Jon Rahm is in striking distance just one shot behind.

Blustery, testing conditions have ensured the Country Club has shown its teeth throughout the week, with just nine players under par, including Rory McIlroy, who battled through a torrid third round to remain in contention at -1 despite opening up yesterday with a three over by score for his first seven holes. World No 1 Scottie Scheffler briefly got to -6 when he holed out from 102 yards for an eagle on the eighth, but the American fell away sharply, producing double bogey on the short 11th with two more bogeys following, though the Masters champion is just two back and primed to capitalize should the leaders slip. Among the other names to watch are home favorite Keegan Bradley, a former PGA Championship winner, who is two-under, as is Canada’s Adam Hadwin, and those at one-under and hoping to surge up the leaderboard include Sam Burns and Joel Dahmen.

“I’d be lying if I said I haven’t thought about it [winning]. It would just mean the world,” said Fitzpatrick, who could become the first non-American to win both the US Amateur and US Open. “It’s a special place for me and to go one step further and win a US Open round here would be even more special. The US amateur was one of the biggest achievements in my career and still is, and if I won a major here it would definitely overtake it. My family are in town, I’ve got a couple of friends here as well and the family I am staying with are fun as well, so I’ll have plenty of distractions which will be good with a late tee-time. I’m excited to give myself another chance in a major just a month later, I’m just really proud with the way I played.” Follow all the action from the fourth and final round of the US Open below:

Fitzpatrick turns his tee shot over at the 6th and, although the ball just about holds onto the green, he’s left with a horrible 66ft putt across and down the slope towards the front right edge. He does give it a great look but it just slips past the flag and runs on a good 5ft. The return up the hill lips out and that’s his first bogey of the day.

Up at 8, Scheffler catches his second into the par 5 a touch fat and he rolls all the way back down the false front.

It’s starting to look very much like a two-horse race between Scheffler and Fitzpatrick.

Zalatoris does at least manage to put himself back in the rearview mirror though with a wonderful tee shot at the 6th. That should be a simple tap-in to take him back to -3, however, nothing is ever routine with the American’s dodgy putting stroke.

Fitzpatrick two putts for birdie and retakes a share of the lead.

Scheffler couldn’t get close with his second at the 7th and has to settle for a par. He quickly makes amends with a huge drive down the fairway at the par-5 8th.

What shot Matt Fitzpatrick! After seeing Rahm trudge off angrily with a bogey after missing the green at the driveable 5th, the Englishman still goes straight for the big stick and finds the middle of the green. He’ll have 24ft for eagle and will surely rejoin Scheffler at the top of the leaderboard at the least.

McIlroy’s par putt runs low of the hole and that’s his third bogey of the round. He’s five shots back now and his hopes are looking farfetched.

Scheffler is looking like a man possessed right now. After that fine tee shot at the 6th, he rolls in a 14ft putt up the hill for a birdie. The world No 1 is four under through six! He leads by one.

Meanwhile, McIlroy’s rollercoaster shows no sign of slowing down. He’s had three birdies and two bogeys in six holes and now pulls his drive into the thick stuff at the 7th. The rough grabs at his club and his approach comes up short and left. The pitch isn’t great from there despite having a fair bit of green to work with and he’ll have another tricky downhill putt to try and save par.

Scheffler hits a lovely tee shot at the 6th and will have another birdie chance there.

Rahm goes for the green at the short 5th but he pulls it badly and will now have a tricky chip off a downhill lie onto a green that is sloping away from him.

Dahmen joins the pack at -2 with a birdie at the 7th. There are currently six players at that mark and they’re certainly all in with a chance.
