Justin Rose, one of the few players under par on Sunday, has now taken over the lead at the U.S. Open with an overall score of even par. Rose is 1-under on the round and leading the field by one stroke.
Rose dropped a shot early at No. 3, but birdied three of his next four holes to move to 1-under for the round. He's managed to avoid miscues since and remains even through 10 holes. Rose has putted well on Sunday, rolling in a few crucial putts to make his run. He also appears confident, something not many of his counterparts can say.
Jason Day was tied for the lead at even, but ran into trouble at No. 11. He hit his approach shot into the water hazard, but recovered as well as possible, chipping in from the edge of the green to salvage a bogey. Day is 1-under on the day and one stroke back.
Phil Mickelson remains in contention, two strokes off the lead, but he has missed multiple opportunities to gain ground. He hasn't been sharp with his approach shots and while he's come close on a few lengthy birdie putts, he's yet to make one. That trend continued on No. 9 when Mickelson's birdie try caught the left edge, but lipped out.
Ernie Els and Jason Dufner are the leaders in the clubhouse at 5-over. Els had a chance to post 4-over, but bogeyed the 18th hole. Depending on how the leaders fare coming in, Els and Dufner could still be in the mix.
