U.S. Open Golf 2012 Leaderboard: Jim Furyk Shoots 1-Under 69 Friday, Now 3 Shots Off Lead

Jim Furyk shot a 1-under 69 on Friday to move up five spots on the leaderboard into a three-way tie (for now) in second place with Tiger Woods and David Toms. The trio still sits three shots back from Michael Thompson, who is still in the lead at even through two holes played Friday, and 4-under overall.

Furyk shot even through the treacherous first six holes at the Olympic Club. He hit birdies on No. 3 and No. 7, and bogeys on No. 5 and No. 9 to finish the front nine at even-par. Furyk was more consistent on the back nine, making par on every hole outside of a birdie on the par-3 No. 15.

Where Furyk ultimately finishes the day will depend on what Toms and Woods do. Both are set to tee off shortly in California.
