The PGA Golf Leaderboard at the US Open 2014 has Martin Kaymer the winner after leading into the final round on Sunday from the Championship at Pinehurst and the live stream coverage is from NBC and the NBC Sports Live Extra website and he tees off after 3 pm ET and has a five stroke lead on the last day over with Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton behind a group that includes Henrik Stenson, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker.
Kaymer is playing some of the best golf of his career after putting up a score of 65 in the first two rounds and he followed that up on Saturday with a 72 in Round 3 and that gave him a total of 202 for the championship and he set a record for the first two rounds at a US Open. Kaymer was at eight under and played better than anyone else in the field and Flower made it into his first major final group and he could make a run, but he will need to play great on Sunday, as it's Kaymer's tournament to lose now. Kaymer put himself up front of the pack and the last two players to put up scores that low ended up winning and he has to try and hang onto things coming into the end of the day on Sunday.
Kaymer had a couple tough moments in round 3 and while he ended up with a two over, he played so well coming in and had a 65 score over the first two rounds and that was enough to keep him in the lead. Kaymer has been on fire, as he set a record after putting up back to back scores of 65 and he finished ahead of a number of players that included Brendon Todd, Brandt Snedeker, Kevin Na, Dustin Johnson and Brendon de Jonge, while Phil Mickelson was way back at 13 shots after a down day.
Kaymer started off strong and hasn't looked back and now it's his tournament to lose with two more days of golf left to play and he will be the main main focus through the weekend. Kaymer did not think the course would allow for a score of 65 and he ended up doing it twice and now he has a nice lead at the tournament after putting up 130 through two rounds and that broke the 131 score of Rory McIlroy at congressional and now he is in position to win the tournament.
Mickelson came into the tournament with some pressure, as he was dealing with an insider trading probe and he ended up fading back after playing well in the first round. Mickelson ended up five over after the third round and it looks like it will be another year without a US Open for him. Starting off with Justin Rose, last year's champion, Mickelson opened up well and then faded and this comes after six runner up performances here.
