U.S.Open @ Olympic, third round, two at the top. Furyk and G Mac. June 16 2012
Jim & G-Mac /Getty ImagesAlone in third position is Fredrik Jacobson, of Sweden, with his third round score of -2 under par elevating him up the leaderboard, finishing at +1 over par. One of the best rounds of the day came from Lee Westwood, he shot a three under par 67, which could easily have been better, a couple of missed putts cost him dear. Lee is only now three shots off the pace at +2 over par, he is joined on that score by a former champion Ernie Els. Another good round tomorrow and Lee Westwood could be there at the end.

Tiger Woods is tied 14th, after a lackluster third round of +5 over par, 75. He will need an extraordinary round tomorrow if he is to contend the title, unless steady Jim Furyk falls over and gives him a hand. I think another par round for Jim tomorrow will see him lift the trophy. But someone could come up with a magical round, will be interesting to watch the jousting for position on Sunday. The course will be set up to be extra tough, as if it wasn't hard enough already.
