US Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Graeme McDowell In The Clubhouse At 1-Under

With Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk falling out of the red numbers in the third round, it opened the door for the rest of the field to move into contention. Graeme McDowell was one of the players to take advantage and he is the current leader in the clubhouse at 1-under for the tournament.

McDowell shot a 2-under 68 in the third round to surge into the red. He started his round with eight straight pars before he bogeyed the No. 9 hole to move to 3-over. It was then, on the back nine, that McDowell made his run. He birdied three holes on the back nine including the 18th hole to give him the clubhouse lead.

McDowell won the 2010 U.S. Open and will try to claim his second title on Sunday.
