Nobody caught Martin Kaymer on Saturday but there was some terrific golf from Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton. There was also some really bad golf from everyone else -- including an 88 from somebody early in the day.

Pinehurst was an absolute monster for Round 3 (as she should be) and we have a full recap of what happened right here.

7:27 PM: Signing off for the day. Kaymer's tournament to lose on Sunday but if he loses it I bet Fowler is right there to clean things up. Should be fun.

Happy (almost) Father's Day, everyone!

7:25 PM: This seems important.

7:17 PM: A Paulina Gretzky sighting!

7:15 PM: Oh, hey, a Brooks Koepka sighting!

7:01 PM: Fowler needs to go with the knickers again on Sunday. For many reasons.

6:57 PM: Another bogey from Kaymer and he's down to 7 under but still four clear of Fowler and Co.

6:34 PM: Kaymer just three-putted for bogey (what is that?) and leads Kevin Na by just four. Big final few holes for them on deck.

6:28 PM: No go on the birdie for Compton but what a round of 67 and what a story. He'll be in one of the final two groups on Sunday.

6:25 PM: Compton sticks one on No. 18, he's tryingt to birdie and beat Fowler's round of 67.

6:18 PM: Fowler said he sent a message to Payne Stewart's daughter, Chelsea, after he donned the knickers on Thursday and hoped she and her family liked them as much as he did.

6:02 PM: Rickie Fowler just shot a 67 that probably feels like a 57 given how this course is playing.

5:37 PM: I agree with this.

5:30 PM: Kaymer finishes his first nine holes in 1 over and he's up five. Closing.

5:28 PM: This is one of my favorite photos from the tournament.

5:21 PM: Don't love.

5:19 PM: Jordan Spieth gets to 1 under. We looking at another final pairing of Spieth-Kaymer in the final round?

5:03 PM: Erik Compton is in second alone. That's wild. If you don't know his story, you should read about it.

4:49 PM: Kaymer just BLEW one by at No. 6.

4:35 PM: Kaymer in trouble on the par-5 5th and hits a joke of a second shot to make eagle. We could be looking at ballgame, folks.

4:25 PM: Wow, Martin Kaymer just made an insane bogey (if there is such a thing). If that was his biggest test of the day then he passed it.

4:22 PM: This from Rory McIlroy was hilarious.

4:20 PM: Kaymer takes an unplayable and, yep, we have ourselves a developing situation. Kaymer could drop to 7 under or 6 under after this hole.

4:15 PM: I mean, if you break 70 today you are a man.

4:14 PM: Ohhhh boy.

4:12 PM: I'm going to do a push up for every bogey made today. I'm going to look like LeBron by the end of the day.

4:04 PM: Kenny Perry just said "It was a golf course of 18 of the toughest pins I've ever seen. It's the hardest setup I've ever experienced in a major championship."

4:03 PM: Kaymer is knocking down flags. This thing is ov-ah.

4:00 PM: Phil Mickelson finishes up his round. He shot 72 (which is actually pretty good) and is now 5 over for the tournament. That might be top 10 when the blood settles today.

3:57 PM: Brendon Todd looks like he's bending over to tie his shoes when he swings.

3:52 PM: Yeesh. Are we going to see this again today?

3:42 PM: Yeah, this is the understatement of the day.

3:39 PM: This is the best shot Matt Kuchar has hit all week.

3:34 PM: I can't be the only one who loves that Henrik Stenson wears Boss clothes. Because he is one.

3:33 PM: Martin Kaymer just launched his first iron at the first pin. It was not the swing of someone leading the US Open by six shots. Today should be joyous.

3:28 PM: Every group is on the course. Let's do this.

3:18 PM: It's kind of stunning to me that Rickie Fowler doesn't win more tournaments. He always seems to be hanging around at the big ones.

3:16 PM: What a US Open we have going on.

3:14 PM: Here's that Kenny Perry shot.

2:59 PM: Kenny Perry just hit a Bubba Watson-ish hook out of the native stuff and into the cup from a LONG way out. Shot of the tournament. We'll have it up shortly.

2:43 PM: This is how Martin Kaymer is warming up today. Actually, this is how he always warms up.

2:32 PM: Johnny Miller is on fire today.

2:21 PM: I'm a large fan of this Adam Scott-Jordan Spieth pairing. Could watch those two swing it all day. Lots of women probably could, too.

1:57 PM: I guess it shouldn't surprise me Mickelson has been playing the harmonica since he was eight..

1:52 PM: I absolutely love Mickelson-Bones conversations. Lefty just said "I think I can bust it as much as I want."

1:27 PM: Hah!

12:36 PM: Very cool graphic here.

12:31 PM: Nobody has reached No. 18 yet but I wouldn't be surprised to see the USGA president laying over the cup to guard it. That's how the Open is playing today.

12:25 PM: This seems like a good place to start.

Tee times

PINEHURST, N.C. -- Saturday's a pretty big day for the 2014 US Open. Martin Kaymer's a long way ahead of the field but the championship could drum up a lot of interest if he falls back.

And there are some groups available to make a run and/or bring big crowds to Pinehurst No. 2.

Phil Mickelson and Webb Simpson (11:56 a.m. ET) stands out as a pairing to bring in massive crowds on Saturday and Adam Scott/Jordan Spieth (2:19 p.m.) should see a large following as well.

Boo Weekley/Sergio Garcia (10:28 a.m.) will probably result in a buddy-cop drama on NBC next month. 

There are a slew of other interesting pairings available Saturday:
