Jim Furyk has played some of the best golf in the 2012 U.S. Open. With his birdie on the 17th in Saturday's third round, he gave another example of how good he can be.
Furyk hit two fine shots after a decent drive and then got another birdie putt from the midrange distance that has always been a forte of his. He sank it, carding his third birdie on the day and sixth of the week, to move back to 1-under for the tournament and even on the tie, and to tie Graeme McDowell, who birdied his final hole of the day to finish off a 68.
If Furyk can match McDowell on the final hole, he'll head into Sunday's final round with a one-shot lead.
