Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell are going to need near miracles to force a playoff at the 2012 U.S. Open. Furyk bogeyed the 16th hole to fall to two-over par, then sunk a difficult par putt at the 17th hole to keep his chances at a title alive. McDowell went to the 17th hole three-over par and made a birdie, giving himself an outside chance to force a playoff on the final hole as well.
The man they're facing is Webb Simpson, who finished his day at one-over for the championship. The 18th hole has only yielded six birdies on Sunday, while Furyk has not birdied yet, so Simpson has to like his chances at avoiding a playoff and winning the title outright.
