The Englishman's seven under round got him to +2 for the tournament and may well be enough to win the title.

He is leader in the clubhouse and, as things stand, one behind the leaders, who still have the whole of the back nine to play.

The Southport man becomes just the sixth man to shoot 63 in a US Open after Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, Tom Weiskopf, Vijay Singh and Justin Thomas.

DJ couldn't contain his emotions on the ninth…

He birdied 12, 13, 14 and 15 and hit a sensational iron into the final green, missing from around 8ft for birdie and a 62.

As well as the missed chance at the last, he had two birdie chances at 16 and 17 which he so-nearly converted.
