Tiger Woods: Breaking Down Tiger's Biggest Obstacles at 2012 US Open
Tiger Woods is Tiger Woods again, and the rest of the 2012 US Open field should be terrified.
After winning the Memorial two weeks ago, Tiger has carried his strong play over to the second major of the year. He is currently tied for first at one-under par, thanks to a 69 on Thursday and an even-par performance on Friday.
Of course, as good as Tiger has been, we can't pencil him into the winner's circle just yet. There are several other golfers playing exceptionally well, and every one of them is capable of catching fire over the weekend.
I'm still picking Tiger to win, but the following golfers will pose a major threat.
Jim Furyk (-1)
Furyk has been the epitome of consistency at Olympic Club.
While basically every other golfer in the field has struggled to find a rhythm, Furyk has been calm and collected throughout. He has parred 29 of 36 holes so far, sinking four birdies and just three bogeys through two rounds.
Furyk has also won a US Open before (in Tiger's prime, no less) so he won't succumb to the mental pressure that comes with battling the legend.
Michael Thompson (+1)
Thompson has been the opposite of Furyk, peaking and bottoming out in consecutive rounds. Still, he proved on Thursday that he's one of the most dangerous contenders in the field.
After a four-under 66 in Round 1, Thompson came back to earth with a five-over 75 on Friday.
If he can hover around par or bust out another performance like he had on Thursday, Thompson will be a real threat on Sunday.
Graeme McDowell (+1)
The 2010 US Open winner is in the hunt again after stringing together two solid rounds.
He shot a one-under 69 on Thursday, followed by a two-over 72 on Friday. He has seven birdies thus far, and if he can refrain from hitting six bogeys again, he should be in prime position heading into the final round.
McDowell already has two top-10 finishes and a 12th-place finish at the Masters in 2012. If he can finish strong at Olympic Club, he will add another achievement to his already solid season.
