Webb Simpson has pulled off an impressive par on the 72nd hole to go into the clubhouse as the leader of the 2012 U.S. Open at 1-over par. This means that the previous leader in the clubhouse, Michael Thompson, won't be winning the tournament, while the players currently at 3-over have quite a bit of work to do if they want to force a playoff.
Jim Furyk is currently tied with Simpson at 1-over, but he hit a poor tee shot on the 16th hole and has a lot of work to do to save par. Ernie Els and Graeme McDowell are both still on the course at 3-over par, though Els is on the 18th and has little to no chance to equal Simpson's score. It's going to take some spectacular play from Furyk and McDowell to keep Simpson from at least getting to a playoff.
