Erin Hills – Hartford, Wisconsin (WIAT) — Alabama Alum Justin Thomas had a historic day Saturday, during the 3rd Round of the US Open.

Thomas ended his day with an Eagle on the 18th hole which helped him brake a 44 year old record, with a 9 under 63 that vaulted him into contention heading into the final day of competition.
