Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and David Toms all stand at 1-under-par, tied for the lead after two rounds of the 2012 U.S. Open golf tournament. Furyk managed to improve on his opening around 70 and post a 69, while both Woods and Toms did a fraction worse than they did on Thursday and moved from 69 to 70. Woods in particular seemed to struggle, hitting three straight bogeys on holes five through seven, but he was able to recover and post par for the day.
St. John's graduate Keegan Bradley shot a 73, an echo of his opening around score. That puts him at 6-over for the tournament, tied for 42nd place and well within the cut. The 8-over cut was less kind to some notable names, including 2011 U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy. His 73 was an improvement from his Round 1 score of 77, but that left him at 10-over and on the wrong side of the cut. Phil Mickelson just made it by, picking up a late birdie on the day's final hole and ending the day at 7-over in total. Master champion Bubba Watson had the opposite experience, and even with two late birdies on holes 15 and 17 he ended at 9-over and is done for the weekend.
With a course as challenging as the Olympic Club it's anyone's tournament heading into the weekend, so expect plenty of exciting golf. A full leaderboard can be found at USOpen.com.
