U.S. Open Golf 2012 Leaderboard: 4-Way Logjam For 1st Place, Tiger Woods A Stroke Back

Despite struggling mightily through the first six holes — hitting just two greens in regulation — Tiger Woods is still very much in position to gain control of the 2012 U.S. Open at The Olympic Club. Woods has three bogeys so far and sits at two-over par, a stroke behind a four-way tie for first place among Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell, Fredrik Jacobson and Nicolas Colsaerts.

The first six holes comprise the toughest stretch on the course. Few players have emerged unscathed, but no one took a worse beating than David Toms. Toms was tied with Woods and Furyk for the lead entering play Saturday but, through seven, he's a +5 on the day, +4 for the tournament and is three strokes back, tied for 12th.

Woods and Furyk, playing in the final group of the day, have struggled off the tee and haven't been able to make it up on the green. Despite being a sub-300-yard par 4, the seventh hole saw both hit their tee shots into the bunker.
