U.S. Open 2012, Tiger Woods: After Rough Start, Tiger Finishes Tied For Lead

Noted golf enthusiast Tiger Woods started the second round of the 2012 U.S. Open near the top of the leaderboard and was off to a nice start, picking up par on the first two holes and a birdie on the third, but it seemed fans were about to see Woods unravel on the second day of the tournament.

Woods picked up three bogeys in a row on holes No. 5 through 7 and quickly began to tumble down the leaderboard, finishing up the front nine shooting a 36. Tiger straightened things out on the back nine however, opening up with a birdie and then adding another birdie on hole No. 13.

Tiger finished up his round parring the four holes. On No. 18, Tiger looked as if he'd finish out on a low note when he found himself in the front bunker off the tee, but was able to hit a masterful shot on to the green that placed him a few feet from the hole. Woods sank the putt for par to stay tied at 1-under and on top of the leaderboard.
