Lowry leads DJ by three, play suspended
Dustin Johnson surrendered his lead at the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club on Saturday, falling three strokes behind leader Shane Lowry in a third round suspended by darkness.
Johnson was two-over par through 13 holes when the play was called at 8:49 p.m. (EDT). The third round will resume Sunday morning with the final round to follow.
Lowry, an Irishman, was three-under through 14 holes to run his total to five-under par, two strokes ahead of Andrew Landry and three ahead of Johnson, Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood, all of whom are in pursuit of their first major championship. Garcia was even par through 13 holes, Westwood one under through 15 holes.
Jason Day, meanwhile, had one of the best rounds of the day, shooting a four-under par 66 that leaves him six off Lowry's lead.
Jordan Spieth shot an even-par 70, to remain at four over and is now nine strokes off the lead.
