U.S. Open Leaderboard Update: Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell On Top After Day 3

Day 3 of the U.S. Open ended with Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell atop the leaderboard, as the only players with scores under par for the tournament. Everyone else is either at even-par or suffering with ridiculously high scores, some of which could actually still win.

That was an interesting point McDowell made in an interview once he was done with his round. He mentioned how the guys with +4 scores (like Tiger Woods now, for example) could still have a shot to win the tournament given the way the Olympic Club course has played this weekend.

It's become an interesting storyline that Furyk and McDowell are tied for the lead going into the final day of action, since both players obviously know what it takes to win a U. S. Open title.
