US Open Golf 2012 Leaderboard Day 3: Scores, Results and Analysis
Two days down and two days left of the U.S. Open! Through 36 holes, there are three men tied for the lead and four more within two shots of the top group. After a crazy day with a nonstop shift of the leaderboard, things have really heated up.
Despite the best efforts of the best players in the world, Olympic has claimed the top two in Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy. Three Americans are sitting at the top of the standings and look to survive another treacherous day.
Stay with us all day for up-to-the-second updates and analysis.
I really feel like McDowell is going to win this thing now. He just battles and he seems to really have it going. Furyk will be a challenge though. I don't think anyone else within three shots will overtake them.
Thank you to anyone who hung in with me today. I'll be back to do this again tomorrow so hopefully some of you will be back. It should be an interesting final day. Have a great Saturday night!
