You can't win the 2012 US Open with a great round, but you can sure lose it with a poor one. Tiger Woods' opportunity for another US Open title may have came to an end on Saturday after he shot 5-over-par 75.
With Woods losing control at the top of the leaderboard, others are in prime position to steal a victory. 12 to 15 players are still in legitimate contention for this major which brings even more drama to the party on Sunday.
Here is where you can find the final round of the 2012 US Open.

Players to Watch
Ernie Els, Lee Westwood and Jason Dufner are players you should keep a close eye on when you're not watching Woods, Jim Furyk or Graeme McDowell.
Els and Westwood provide great experience in major tournaments. They won't be rattled by the major championship pressure like others. They will stick to their game plan and hope to execute it to perfection.
Dufner is a guy who is capable of making a push on the final day. He is going to take some risks that will either put him in contention or push him down a few strokes.
McDowell hasn't experienced much success at any other tournaments, but there is just something about the US Open.
In 2010, McDowell won the tournament by shooting even par. He knows and enjoys playing in this type of tournament at the US Open, one where a bad round could destroy your chances.
With his recent experience in this tournament, McDowell will relive his 2010 form to win his second US Open.
