U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Jim Furyk, Tiger Woods Struggle On Massive 16th Hole

The 16th hole at The Olympic Club is a true par-5 that goes 670 yards. Believe it or not, both Jim Furyk and Tiger Woods dropped shots on it on Saturday in the third round.

Furyk found himself in the rough after his first shot, and was forced to play a short shot to get back to the fairway. From there, he managed to find the fringe on his third shot, and a long birdie putt rolled fast and left him 10 feet for par. His flat stick failed him for one of the first times on Saturday at that juncture, as Furyk missed and made bogey, dropping back to even par for the tournament.

Woods' adventure was just as exciting. He drove to the trees, stung one to the fairway, and hit to a greenside bunker, then chopped a pitch out of the sand that zipped an inch by the hole. Tiger could not hit his par, breaking a string of six straight on the back nine, and fell to 3-over for the Open.

Furyk still shares the lead with Graeme McDowell at even. Woods is tied for eighth.
