Jim Furyk has not been the story of the 2012 U.S. Open. The headlines, instead, have mostly been saved for the rise, and fall, of Tiger Woods or the ascendance of 17-year-old high school amateur Beau Hossler. But Furyk entered Saturday's third round tied atop the leaderboard with Tiger Woods and David Toms, and while the latter two collapsed, Furyk played a steady round and still finds himself tied for first heading into Sunday's final round.
This time, he's sharing the lead with Graeme McDowell, who shot a 68 on Saturday to drop his score to -1 and tie him with Furyk. Those two hold a two shot lead over Swede Fredrik Jacobson, who is all alone in third place at +1. Jacobson will tee off on Sunday with Lee Westwood, who is in fourth at +2.
