News of Rickie Fowler, who is having an absolute shocker today. Not necessarily of Mickelsonesque proportions, but still. Out in 41, after two bogeys and two doubles, he’s just trebled 10. He’s crashed down the standings to +11. Meanwhile on 9, Justin Rose comes up short, and leaves himself stuck on the bank, in sticky fescue. He punches up to six feet, but pushes his par saver to the right. He’s +2. Stenson pars to remain in the lead at level. And Dustin’s woes continue on 8: he’s crashed his drive down the centre of the fairway, but chipping into the wind, leaves his approach on the false front of the green, and his ball topples back down the fairway. Work to save his par.

So now it’s official: it’s Dustin Johnson meltdown time! He leaves his 50-foot uphill putt seven feet short, then pulls the par putt left. His four-shot lead at the halfway mark has gone within seven holes! Henrik Stenson is now the sole leader of the US Open. Meanwhile another dropped shot for Ian Poulter, who pushes a six-foot par putt wide right. He’s +5.

E: Stenson (8)
+1: Koepka (9), Rose (8), D Johnson (7)
