Jim Furyk remains steady among the contenders in the US Open 2012 as he shares the top of the leaderboard with Graeme McDowell at 1-under par. Furyk never faltered at all after letting himself a bad start in the previous round. He laboriously toiled to get some birdies just to cancel out his bogeys to maintain his standing.
As a US Open winner on 2003, Furyk will try to keep himself atop the US Open leaderboard as he hurdles through the toughness of the Olympic Club for the fourth time. An even par performance can probably make him the winner given the previous three rounds how all the players found themselves in a territory that they couldn’t understand at all. Furyk knows what to do in the final round that he will be able to dismantle all his nearest competitors at the end of the day.
In the third round alone, he defied the pressure of the spotlight being paired with Tiger Woods. When he bogeyed the first and fifth holes to his dismay, he never became frustrated as he fougth back to the level ground. He putted the seventh hole for a birdie as he tried to find his way to the top of the US Open leaderboard. By putting birdies on the 11th and 17th, Furyk was able to negate his bogey in the 16th, thus, giving him the even par. As Furyk played with calmness, his opponents especially Woods and David Toms faded into oblivion, paving the way for him to be on top.
It will be a gigantic fourth and final round at the US Open 2012 for Furyk if he is able to maintain the guts and aggression that he has been doing in the past three days. Before the competition started, Furyk was out of the map as one of the favorites. The likes of Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, and even Luke Donald filled the sports news as the top dogs for the US Open 2012. However, with the turning of events, Furyk is just 18 holes away of winning his second major title. Will he be able to capture the US Open golf Championship title?
McDowell played with toughness in the third round as he avoided a lot of bogeys through his par-saving putts. He let go of the ninth hole to end up as a bogey but he managed to make it different at back nine by shooting 10th, 13th, and 18th into birdies. McDowell finished the third round with a score of 2-under par. What McDowell has to do to win the US Open golf 2012 championship is to duplicate his yesterday’s performance. He will be pairing with Furyk in today’s round and that he should not be intimidated as the attention will be on him. Don’t ever forget that McDowell was the 201 winner of the PGA US Open, thus, he is also a experienced players capable of winning this tournament. If he wins, then he will be considered as one of the best in the recent history of the US Open, capturing two titles in three years.
Two shots behind the leaders is Fredrik Jacobson who currently at 1-over par for the tournament. He must have to sustain his effort and approach as he waits for others to falter along the way. Jacobson made the move yesterday by hitting 2-under par. The possibility for him to be on top is not far beyond reach. He can climb to the top of the US leaderboard 2012 in just a hole. Never count him out in this competition for he might be the surprise winner.
Nicolas Colsaerts, Blake Adams, Ernie Els, and Lee Westwood are at 2-over par, three shots behind the leaders. Ernie Els just lurks around as he had a great day in the third roun by going 3-under par. Els tremendously suffered in the first five holes by shooting three bogeys. Because of his experience, Els climbed steadily by avoiding mistakes as he birdied the 7th, 8th, 12th holes while putting the dagger on the 17th for an eagle while he parred all the rest of the holes. Elss will surely be the player to watch to make his move again in the final round.
Amateur and 17-year-old Beau Hossler cannot be neglected as one of the contenders. With his eyes on history with just four shots behind the leaders, Hossler will try everything to move up in the leaderboard to make the pressure on his competitors. If he can be at 3-under par for today, then he has a chance to steal the title from the rest of the field.
How about Tiger Woods? He had the shot to win it yesterday but his game went awry by giving up the ghost. It will be impossible for Woods to be back in contention with that five strokes deficit. If he can cut the lead into two in the front nine, then he will have to take risk in the 16th and 17th holes to stay close. Woods must show patience and must take some risks to win this US Open 2012.
