Golf fans, you have come to the right spot. Before the 112th U.S. Open concludes this weekend, you will be up to date on everything going down.

Round 3 is teeing off and the top is crowded with three leaders—Jim Furyk, David Toms and Tiger Woods. Yes, you read right, Tiger Woods is tied for first. 

This is the first time in almost three years that Woods is in the lead after a round in a major. Woods has a strong chance of taking the title, as he has won eight of nine majors when he has had a 36-hole lead. Woods will tie the record for most U.S. Open titles, which is four, if he is able to get the victory.

Woods being one of the current leaders is not the only shocker.

The world's current No.1 player, Luke Donald, was ousted after missing the cut on Friday. After the second round, Donald was 11-over par. He is not the only golfer to not live up to expectations.

Defending U.S. Open champion and the world's second ranked player, Rory McIlroy, will also not be participating in this weekend's action. He finished 10-over par. McIlroy seemed to be Woods' new rival in the past year, but has been a disappointment as of late. McIlroy has missed the cut in four of his past five events. 

So far, we have had an unpredictable first few rounds. We could possibly see the true return of the tiger, Woods, that is. 

Two of the three leaders, Woods and Furyk, tee off at 6:05 p.m. EDT today.
