U.S. Open 2012 Leaderboard Update: Tiger Woods Finishes Dismal Third Round

As I left the media tent at The Olympic Club about an hour before Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk stepped to the first tee, the two were alone at the top. It's a large leaderboard that tracks the scores and quickly updates. When I returned from following Woods and Furyk around the final course, the latter was still at the top, but the former was nowhere to be found.

Tiger Woods managed to fall all the way off the leaderboard after two strong days at The Olympic Club. He was off from the first tee, then stayed off as he found what seemed like every nook, cranny and bunker of the course. His distances were wrong; his tee shots, which had been solid all week, were straying left and right; and he couldn't make a putt to save his life.

The end result was a third-round 75, five strokes over par for the day. The abysmal round pushed him all the way back to 4-over for the tournament, five shots off the lead. While he generally struggled on Friday on his way to an even-par round, Woods was unable to scramble on Saturday and paid for it dearly.

Now he's going to have to play catchup, making up a five-shot deficit that feels more like 50 on a tough, unforgiving course.

Amateur Beau Hossler Still Near Top Of 2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard 2012 After Third Round

One of the best stories of the 2012 U.S. Open has been the play of 17-year-old amateur Beau Hossler, who briefly claimed the lead on Friday. After a stellar third round, he might yet be near that lead at some point on Sunday, too.

Hossler played tenaciously in Saturday's third round, carding an even-par 70 that belied how resilient his golf was. He made four bogeys on the day, but he followed each of them up with an immediate birdie to cancel them out. Hossler never moved higher than 4-over for the tournament.

After the round, Hossler sits at 3-over for the Open and is tied for eighth, two shots behind the clubhouse lead and four behind Jim Furyk. That puts him in striking distance: on Sunday, he'll have a realistic chance to become the first amateur in many decades to win the U.S. Open.

2012 U.S. Open: John Peterson Hits Hole-In-One

It's been a rough day on the course for John Peterson, the 23-year-old former LSU golfer who started the day at one-over after a couple of impressive showings to start the week. He was four-over par for the day and six shots off the lead as he walked up to the 13th hole, a 199 yard par-3.

When he hit his tee shot, he didn't seem to think that he hit it hard enough. He started yelling at the ball to 'go', and it went. His shot caught the front of the green and took an extremely favorable bounce, then rolled straight towards the cup and went directly in for an ace without any kind of skip off the flagstick.

Peterson's now three-over par, just two-over on the day and four shots behind leader Jim Furyk.

Jim Furyk Tops 2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard

The first six holes didn't go any better for Jim Furyk as they did for the rest of the field. He got through that tough stretch at two-over, but he turned his day around quickly once he got to the less challenging holes at The Olympic Club. Through 12 holes on Saturday, he leads the U.S. Open at one-under par.

Furyk birdied the 7th hole to get his post-6th hole day going with an excellent start. He then drained another birdie on the 11th to get back to even par for the day. None of the other guys who were around him at the start of the day on Saturday have been able to accomplish the same feat, and he's alone on top of the leaderboard. Both Graeme McDowell and Nicolas Colsaerts trail him by one stroke, at even par.

U.S. Open Leaderboard 2012: Nicolas Colsaerts, Jim Furyk Lead Late On Saturday

Jim Furyk has been steady all day long and still leads the 2012 U.S. Open at even par, but he's finally been joined by someone else. Nicolas Colsaerts, who has been conservative all day, has finally broken his string of pars with a birdie to jump up to the even par line through 11 holes.

Graeme McDowell is the only player at one-over while a host of players sit at two and three-over par. Lee Westwood, the No. 3 ranked player in the world, is the leader in the clubhouse at two-over. His 67 was the low score of the day thus far, and it might not be matched.

Ernie Els recently jumped to two-over with an impressive eagle on the 17th hole, while Fredrik Jacobson and Jason Dufner have ridden consistent days to two-over. Tiger Woods has had an up and down day, but he's also at two-over and won't be too mad about only being two shots off the lead. Webb Simpson, Kevin Chappell, John Senden, and incredible amateur Beau Hossler all sit at three-over par.

US Open 2012: Tiger Woods Birdies 9th Hole, Still 2 Shots Back

It's been a rough front nine for Tiger Woods, but he has finished the first half of his Saturday at the 2012 U.S. Open on a positive note.

After he hit a poor tee shot into the left rough on the 9th hole, Woods hit an exceptional second shot, muscling the ball out of some serious cabbage to knock it onto the green. He then sunk a long birdie putt with his third stroke on the hole, taking him to two-over par on the day. He trails his playing partner Jim Furyk by two strokes.

Woods bogeyed four holes on the front nine, with his worst coming on the 8th hole. Woods had a reasonable, if difficult, shot at birdie on the hole, then what appeared to be a simple putt for par. He shockingly missed the short par putt, seemingly signaling that it just wasn't his day. He did recover with a fantastic birdie on the following hole.

2012 U.S. Open: Defending Champion Rory McIlroy Misses Cut

Lost in the furor over Tiger Woods sitting atop the leaderboard at The Olympic Club on the second day of the 2012 U.S. Open on Friday and 17-year-old amateur Beau Hossler claiming a lead no amateur had since 1980 was the story of last year's defending champion. One year after ravaging Congressional in a record-breaking U.S. Open victory, Rory McIlroy is headed home after a missed cut.

McIlroy began his tournament with a first-round 77 that left him a full 11 shots off Michael Thompson's pace and in danger of missing the cut, but he had a chance to rally on Friday and keep his tournament alive. Instead, despite starting on the ninth hole and taking on the softer back nine first, McIlroy was unable to get in gear, making two bogeys before his first birdie and five in his first 10 holes.

Steadying his hand on the front nine -- McIlroy played the arduous first six holes in just 2-over on Friday, and birdied the seventh -- wasn't enough, though, as he three-putted the par-3 eighth to turn a birdie try into a bogey that left him with a 73 on Friday and a 10-over mark for the Open. Despite the cut dropping all day, it only reached 8-over; McIlroy's final flailing attempt on the green did him in, more than anything.
