Johnny Miller had been the only other player to shoot 63 in a major, shooting an 8-under tally in the final round of the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.
Justin Thomas' father, Mike, was waiting for his son after his third round at the U.S. Open and had just one question.
"That means I'm a part of history, and it means I have a lot better chance to win the tournament than I did when the day started", he said.
Thomas - a two-time victor on the PGA Tour in 2017 who shot a 59 en route to victory at the Sony Open - told Fox: "I was chasing 63, just because I know that's kind of the magic number".

Thomas played at Alabama from 2012-13, winning the Haskins Award as the NCAA's top golfer as a freshman. But just for me, I felt like I've been playing pretty well all week, and didn't have quite the numbers to show for it. "I had no idea about the relation to par, so that was definitely a big bonus". He said, yeah, let's do it.
"Nine under is incredible with U.S. Open pressure", Miller told Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner. It appeared as though he was gaging just how much they were shaking. I put myself in a great position. "And I'm kind of going out there and just doing it, and letting it go". Then I was so mad at myself for that.
"I could not have hit that three-wood to the last (from 299 yards) any better if I tried, just a little high cut and I was very fortunate for the overnight rain for the ball to stay there". And he walked it in with confidence to grab the lead at Erin Hills. It's possible Thomas won't even be in the final pairing Sunday afternoon, but he is firmly back in the mix.
