seventeen's one of the harder holes out the. it was another one of those things that just, the putter was feeling good and i got it start oin and it just went right in the back. (commentator) supposed to break a little bit to the right, and he made it! justin thomas is now 7-under on the day... and in sole possession. whoo! look at that scorecard. the tee shot on 18 wasn't the best, but the second shot was probably the best shot i've ever hit in my life.

(brad) he shot nine under par at a u.s. op, which had never been done before, and he did it with two of the best 3-wood shots
in the history of the game of golf. that was as good as we could have ever expect. (ed) thomas's afternoon helid da ofvellrends play by some of the best golfers in the world, with 11 players shooting 68 or better. saturday wasn't always pretty for rickieowr, but he grinded away, working his way to six birdies and just two bogeys, earning a 34 going out and a matching 34 coming in for a 68... (joe) looking for his third birdie in a row... (commentator) and he did it! (cheering) (ed) ...leaving him just two shots off the lea (upbeat music) ♪ right there alongside him on the leaderboard was tommy fleetwood, who also shot a 68 on saturday. (commentator) ran it right by the flag. what a shot. (tommy) it's just one of them tournaments
ning, as a boy, as a teenager, even turning pro. it's a pleasure to be in contention on a sda (ed) brian harman was even better, as the 30-year-old matched his opening round scorof7, giving him a one-shot lead overall. (commentator) today, he's played flawlessly. (commentator) he's hit every shot the presemot. when he got in trouble, managed himself well. (commentator) showing a lot of class, lotta game, lotta guts. (joe) he's never made the cut in a u.s. open. he ends with a par, he shoots 67, and he leads by one over three. (ed) if this u.s. open looked to be setting up as a breakthrough stage for a new star, there was no disputing that of all the young ays to emerge at erin hills, brooks koepka had looked as strong as any oth. (commentator) koepka for birdie. he's got it! puts him in a share of the lead. (ed) and for koepka on saturday,
d nine again proved to be a difference... (commentator) this is what power looks like, lk this guy with his arnold palmer arms, just letting it eat. oh my gosh, that's so impressive. (ed) ...giving him an aggregate 10-under bogey-free score on the back half of the course. (brooks) coming down saturday, you know, to play well on the back nine i thought was really important. you could lead into sunday, you know, having some confidence, and it was nice, we played well all week. (ed) overall, koepka hit 12 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation for a 68, leaving him just one shot behind harman and tied with the red-hot justin thomas and tommy fleetwood, with rickie fowler just one shot back, all of them looking to be at the top of the ap when the last player holed out on sunday. (brooks) i mean, there's a leaderboard eryol i mean, it's hard not to see where you' a and i just remember thinking every time i sawt, well, that's just not quite good enough. you need to keep making birdies, everyone's mangires
the leaderboard of the 2017 u.s. open at erin his was crowded as the final day of play began in wisconsin. (joe) we came into sunday with no clear-cut favorite to win that championship. you think rickie fowler, 'cause he's e ggt me you think justin thomas, 'cause he juswe czy on saturday, but it was absolutely wide open. (ed) now, 18 holes remained for one player to emerge. and among those looking to seize the opportunity of a lifetime was brooks koea, who had long been benefitting on the tour from his close friendship with the man who'd won this championship a year earer dustin johnson. (brooks) when dj won the u.s. open, i was extremely happy for him, but i also had a sense of, why am i not doing thi like, what's the issue here? after a while, it just kinda adds fuel to their (ed) having missed the cut, johnson called his buddy on the eve of the narod to offer some advice.
aid, you know, hey, bud, this is ur you got it, nobody's playing better. go win yourself a major. and he knew, he knew what i needed. i'll remember that phone call for a whil iwa u it was really cool. (ed) and from the start, it looked like koepka was ready to do just what his friend told him to. (brooks) i was hitting the ball really well, i was putting it really well, short game wasig opot. you combine all of that and it's just pure confidence. that's kinda what it felt like. i was here for one thing and one thing only, and i wasn't leaving until i got it. (ed) and as the winds in wisconsin started to pick up, contenders started to fall off. the first was justin thomas. after his historic 63 on saturday, from the outset, it was clear sunday would be a very different story for the young american, who bogeyed three of his first five holes to take himself out of contention. (commentator) well, we repeatedly hear how hard it is to follow a great round up.
(justin) i was excited for today, i felt very comfortable. i mean, it was obviously playing a lot more dfilt so i--i gave it all i had, i felt like it was theowt i could have shot; i mean, i just didn't, u just didn't have it today. (joe) now fleetwood for birdie and a share of the lead. (intense music) (ed) tommy fleetwood birdied his second hole, but immediately followed that with three bogeys over his next six. (commentator) he's going right at it. he let go, maybe he mishit it enough. oh, that is no good at all. (ed) a chance for birdie on the par-3 ninth gave him a real shot to end his front nine on a good note... (commentator) oh! what a beautiful shot by fleetwood. closest we've seen in a long time. (ed) ...but he'd be on the outside lookingn for the rest of the day. fowler, meanwhile, hung tough on the front, birdying the first hole, and then offsetting a bogey on five with another birdie on seven...
...shooting a 35, keeping him right in the mix with nine holes to play. harman, the leader coming into the day, stayed consistent, with eight pars and one bird on the front nine. (commentator) good-looking run... and what a great putt for harman, full circle. -and brian harman jars it. -man, that fella can pt, i gotta tell ya. (ed) and he made the turn with a real shot at the championship. and then there was koepka, who started his sunday with back-to-back biie (brooks) you know, the old birdie-birdie eases the nerves, i guess, a little bit. not that i really had any nerves, it was more of a confidence thing, i guess youou s, it was okay, birdie-birdie. confidence, let's go, let's get this thi, and let's keep it rolling. (ed) then came his third birdie of the day,
-there we go! -wow! two putts in a row from koepka that have reached the hole from a long ways away, and that was a big one there. (ed) and he finished his front nine as the new leader of the championship, just ahead of harman. (brooks) i was already clicking and i already knew what i was there for. to make the turn, to be like, all right, you're in control, you're in the driv'se, is a fun way to play the back nine. (ed) but there was also another contender who'd been steadily gaining all weekend: japan's hideki matsuyama. (commentator) oh, oh, oh! and that's how you draw it up. (juli) sunday, it was like he had nothing to lose he was like, okay, i'm gonna come out here and go for it. (ed) matsuyama started strong on the front nine (commentator) oh my goodness, what a shot. (ed) he birdied one, four, and five,
8-under overall heading into the back nine, and there, he'd really heat up. (joe) this is the guy you may wanna pay attention to, the number four ranked player in the world, hideki matsuyama. he is making a charge and the highest-ranked pye left in the field. (commentator) gotta have it... ...and gets it! (ed) matsuyama's five birdies on the back ne and 12-under finish put pressure on the leader as brooks koepka started to waver. ♪ and on 13, things got really interesting. (brad) 13 was the key, i felt. when he missed the green to the right and it appeared he was leaking a little oil with the lead at the u.s. open, and he chipped it up eight or ten feet short, not a great pitch shot.
♪ but when he drained that putt, it was a signal of things to come, and it was brooks koepka's to win or lose (brooks) i mean, it all came down to that puton3, that's the real reason why i felt like ha so much momentum. i mean, i felt like it was-- u.s. open, a par save sometimes just as good as a biie ♪ (ed) with rickie fowler continuing to struggle to hit greens... ♪ ...brian harman fading with back-to-back bogeys.. ...and matsuyama only able to make up so much grod, there was never a better time for koepka to catcfi.

koepka had a four-shot lead on harman, with matsuyama left in the clubhouse to watch and hope for a breakdown. (brooks) you know, you get the-- the champions racing on 17. you know, walking down the fairway, walking up to the green, everyone starting tohe, and i still got 30 feet. (commentator) tell you what, that four-shot lea could go down to two here in a new york minute if he's not careful. (crowd shouting) (brooks) and i run the 30-footer by, like, four feet by.

this is fox5 local news at five right now at five, new details he murnlging in the deadly shooting of a maryland police detective. we know this because it is captured on private surveillance video that we have recovered. detective sooter killed in a vacant parking lot with his own gun. what his partners did on the surveillance . then
mother charged after her her september her daughter to school with a. and the black friday rush underway. but did you take the proper precautions to keep your identity safe from hackers the news at five starts now. and happy thanksgiving everyone, thanks for coming out of your turkey coma and joining us here at five. we do appreciate it. in case you haven't noticed, black friday shopping it has already started. it started weeks ago for some somebody. some people spent the day lined up outside of best buy. that's where we find fox5's anjali hemphill. i wonder if their families said we're cool with this. i think it's a little bit of both. some people decided to bring the family along, others decided to ditch them and cash in on some of those deals. many years ago this started being called gray thursday where those black friday deals
. i can tell you you that these gray thursday fls anything but dismal. i think the last chunk of people that are being led in, they have been standing outside since way before five. they have been let ting people in since 5:00. we still have a line outside the door that is of course bought funnies in here. you wouldn't know it is still thursday with all the black friday signs off. some people waiting to cash in on 40, 50 percent off, sometimes more. this gray thursday has been controversial lately. this has been despite by some say thol days should be spent home with family. many stores like wall nart, colorados, best buy remain open. we did speak to young brothers earlier this afternoon who waited more than three hours in line to get a laptop they were looking for and they really fitiond out how to
to shop while mom and dad stayed at home and cooked. i come here wait in line and when thee got in we'd call our parents and then they would come. they have to pay forth stuff, right. >> right. our plans are at home my mommies cooking the turkey. when we're done with this we're going to go back home and eat the turkey and celebrate thanksgiving. what are you getting today. >> a laptop. why did you you have to come on thanksgiving day >> because we didn't want rveg to be gone by the time we got here tomorrow. you can see they're still letting them in and they're still very excited, none of them being taken down by that turkey coma just yet. best buy a along with several other stores are open today. some are not. this best buy will stay open until one in the morning and then it will reopen tomorrow at 8 a.m.
stalk about football on thanksgiving. the annual turkey championship took on some new cig gans this year. this is video of a brawl earlier this month between players at wood son and eastern high schools. wood son had to play the game with more than a dozen players suspended because of the fight. nine players appealed their punishment, but officials oanl other than every over turned one player's suspension. fox's paul wagner watched from the sidelines and has the story for us. >>reporter: it was a battle all day done, for hc wood son down 17 players and using a third string quarterback. but in the end ballou pulled it out. the tone of the game was set early on with two quick touchdowns by ballou. hz wood son did its best with the players it had, fighting with back with two interceptions and eventually two touchdowns of its own. ballou played the better game and came out
bowl trophy now theirs after wood son had won it the last two years. the principal stood by his decision in face of criticism from the former mayor and former council member vincent gray. there are people who have more to lose, i think that's an important lesson that we want to make sure that our students learn now and that is that it's important at all times to be in control of your emotions the best you can and when you find yourself heated it's really important that you don't allow yourself to lose control. my issue has been the lack of fairness and equity involved in this. you got kids who were suspended from wood son who can't play in this turkey bowl today. eastern season's is over. they are suspended for a game for next year. that means also you will have kids who will graduate from eastern high school in year. there will never be a consequence for what they did. it
fairness in equity. they should have gone ahead and suspended kids from wood son for next season as well and it would have been a much more fair and and equitable suspension. hd wood son it's a tough lesson to learn . at eastern high school, paul wagner, fox five local news >> nice sunny out there. and now it's dark. not so much. that whole sunset thing will get you every time. the football games are earlier and we're getting ready for another football game over fedex field. the redskins playing in just a couple of hours. >> and it's going to be cold. >> not as sunny and bright. >> it took me off guard. it's five:30. it was bright and sunny a couple of hours ago. anything could be going on outside we have no clue. >> a different day, it doesn't matter. i would have to say this was one of the nicest look ing thank

a radio transmission and the sound of apparent gunfire and evidence of a struggle visible on detective sooter's clothing. >> police also say body camera video from first responding officers shows that suiter was still holding the radio that he made the emergency call from when officers found him. so far police have no suspects in the case. it was a rough start to thanksgiving at reagan national after tsa busted a gun who was carrying a loaded gun. tsa spot ted the gun in one of the monitors. the gun was confiscated and they sited him on weapon charges. fire damaged a home, the first one ripped through a home in clinton off bellefonte lane just before three people. three kids, two adults woke up in time thanks to a, woulding smoke detectivor. they think it started on the second floor after an electrical wire caught fire. today is thanksgiving. i

>> if your kids don't feel like handing out hugs this holiday you may not want to force the issue. the national girl scout organization is warning parents not to insist that their children hug their relatives. it is a story that we had earlier on fox5. what people think about this holiday parent ing message. >>reporter: a controversial message to parents from the girl scouts with a blog post entitled reminder she doesn't oh nina hug not even at the holidays. i just felt like that was over stepping the bounds of what girl scouts is all about. not forc ing children or anye
that matter to have physical contact with anyone. the national girl scouts of the usa organization warning parents to not force children to give hugs or kisses to relatives if they do not want to. so they don't get the wrong idea about consent and physical affection. some kids need to be encouraged to show effects because maybe that doesn't come naturally to them. they're absolutely right. it made me feel different. i will ask my kneeses first on thursday if they mind. public figures are now facing sexual misconduct allegations. as experts note many child sex abuse cases involve a family member. i agree with the girl scouts. the problem, though, is that you don't want to make children paranoid and scared. children need to be touched, touched appropriate appropriately they need to feel that they're loved,
