US Open co-leader Wyndham Clark will play the man who is tied with him for the top of the leaderboard at 10 under par, Rickie Fowler, with a chance to win his first major golf title on Sunday in Los Angeles. Country Club (LACC).
You’ll probably be happy that you won’t be out too late either.
Clark couldn’t contain his frustration at how late he got out at LACC during the third round on Saturday, as the sun was clearly going down as he was finishing his round, obviously making it hard to see the ball and everything else around the field.

Clark’s round began at 3:40 p.m. PT after the first round of the day ended at 9:33 a.m. PT.
«It’s kind of ridiculous that we played so late,» Clark said via the New York Post. «I would say around the 15th or 16th hole, it started to get to where you couldn’t see as well. I mean, I personally don’t understand why we teeed off. We played twilight golf.»
While both Clark and Fowler are the co-leaders entering the final round, the former believes a lack of sunlight led to worse scores down the stretch.

«The last two holes, I 100% believe my bogey on 17th was because I couldn’t see, and I think Rickie’s bogey on 18th was because I couldn’t see.»
Fowler had a chance to enter Sunday as the lone leader, with just a five-foot putt to finish his round. However, he uncharacteristically mouthed it and smiled incredulously before tapping it for the bogey to tie Clark up.
«I’m not trying to make an excuse, but it was definitely a challenge,» Clark said. «[Holes] 17 and 18, my putt on 17, I literally couldn’t see it, and we just played for feel and how Rickie’s putt went in. And then my putt on 18, same thing. [Clark’s caddie] John said, ‘Well, it’s a bit around here. Make sure you hit it lightly because we need it, we don’t want to overlook this. We need a faucet that comes in.»
«So, it’s a bit difficult, and it’s crazy to think that we’re doing that on the last two holes of a major when we could have teeed off two hours earlier. Hopefully we won’t have that problem tomorrow.»
It won’t be a problem for Clark on Sunday, as the USGA saw what happened and set the final matchup for 2:30 pm PT, which is more than an hour before Saturday’s tee time.
