St. Xavier alum Justin Thomas had himself a day in the third round of the U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin Saturday.

He shot a 63 and became only the fifth player to do that in U.S. Open history and his nine-under-par made history.

No player had ever shot a nine-under-par in U.S. Open history before Saturday. Johnny Miller shot an eight-under-par in 1971.

While Thomas had a historic day, he is still one shot off the lead.  Brian Harman's 5-under 67 propelled him to a 12-under 204 total.

The former Tiger is the 31st golfer to finish with a score of 63 in major championship history. There were three in There were three in 2016, including a final-round 63 by Henrik Stenson in winning The Open at Troon.

Thomas will tee off with Harmon at 3:54 p.m. EDT Sunday.
