But his day quickly unravelled and his clubs went from heroes to villains.

As the day progressed Murray tumbled down the order - culminating in him launching his club at hole seven following a quadruple-bogey.

However, more was to come from the American, as his poor golfing saw the red mist descend at the 10th.

The furious 28-year-old snapped his club over his leg, leaving him with less clubs than he started the day with.

Murray's score is currently a disappointing 18 over, placing him down in 63rd overall.

Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick is currently tied for first place at the Open with Will Zalatoris at -4.

Fitzpatrick could become the first golfer since Jack Nicklaus to win the US Amateur and US Open at the same venue.

The Sheffield golfer became the first Englishman in 102 years to win the Amateur title when he won it at aged 18 in 2013.

Defending champion Jon Rahm sits in third one shot worse off than the two front-runners.

The world No 2 is looking to become just the third golfer to successfully defend the US Open title.

The likes of four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy and world No 1 Scottie Scheffler are also still in the hunt despite poor third round performances.

Scheffler sits in joint fourth with Keegan Bradley and Canadian Adam Hadwin at -2, while McIlroy sits on -1 tied in seventh with Americans Joel Dahmen and Sam Burns.
