Nottinghamshire’s Lee Westwood is up from 29th to ninth in his third round at the US Open in San Francisco.
Westwood, who was born in Worksop, sank a seven-foot putt on the 499-yard par-four fifth and then birdied again at the 268-yard seventh.
The world number three stood three over par and was only four behind overnight leaders Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and David Toms, who had yet to tee off.
