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.
