Tommy Fleetwood was unconscious Sunday at Shinnecock Hills during the final round of the 2018 U.S. Open.
Taking full advantage of some extremely favorable conditions, thanks to an about-face by the USGA following a disastrous Round 3, Fleetwood fired a final-round 63.
This score earned him a place in history, as it was the sixth 63 in U.S. Open history.
Missed it. 63 for Tommy Fleetwood. Three pars to finish but he posts 2 over. 6th 63 in US Open history. #USOpen

We knew Fleetwood was hot when he ripped off four birdies in six holes on the opening nine. A lone bogey at No. 9 itself seemed to indicate he might cool off a bit. But then Fleetwood went absolutely bonkers on the back nine, scoring four birdies in a row starting on No. 12.
T. Fleetwood has rolled in 159 feet of birdie putts through 15 holes and is 1 shot off the lead.

This scoring bonanza put Fleetwood right up there with the leaders at the time.
4 birdies in a row!

He went on to par the final three holes as his putter got a bit cold at the end. But his final round will certainly be one we’ll remember for a long, long time.
Twitter went bananas watching Fleetwood make Shinnecock Hills into his own personal birdie paradise Sunday.
