Shinnecock Hills finally got the best of Will Grimmer.
Going into Day 3 of the 2018 U.S. Open, Grimmer — the current Ohio State golfer competing in the event as one of three amateurs — owned a score of 5-over par. Then, Saturday happened.
Shinnecock Hills has been a difficult course to conquer over the years for any golfer and Day 3 proved to showcase what the course was all about. Grimmer shot an 8-over-par 78, moving his overall score to 13-over 223.
Will Grimmer cards a 78 in round three but he’s still right in the race for low amateur. He’s just two shots behind Matt Parziale headed to Sunday.

At 13 over, Grimmer is now tied for 50th overall. He was tied for 26th a day ago.
As Ohio State’s men’s golf tweet mentioned, he is two shots behind Matt Parziale, another amateur competing in the event.
The course hasn’t been kind to anybody over the weekend, as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau and Daniel Berger are all tied atop the leaderboard at 3-over 213.
