Tommy Fleetwood admits he will not be worried if the wind starts to blow during the final day of the US Open.

The Englishman heads into the final round in a three-way tie for second alongside Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka, with the trio currently one behind Brian Harman on 12-under.
After a fairly pleasant opening three days at Erin Hills, more wind is being forecast for Sunday and it could have a huge say on the outcome in Wisconsin.
Fleetwood is no stranger to playing in blustery conditions, having grown up playing links golf in and around his hometown of Southport.
The 26-year-old admits he will feel comfortable if the conditions toughen and is confident his game will stand up to the elements as he plots his way to a maiden major title.
Fleetwood said: "I'll be happy if it blows, I don't mind either way. The course is probably nicer to play without the wind, but if it does blow, then you'll definitely have to play proper golf. And it will play a lot tougher.
"The course has obviously missed the wind scoring-wise, if the wind blows it makes it a much different golf course. So I'm sure that the wind will stop scoring being as low as it has been. But good shots will still prevail, if you hit them."
