The leaderboard is exciting at the 2012 U.S. Open. Jim Furyk, Tiger Woods and David Toms who are all major winners from the past are tied for the lead at golf’s second major of the year at -1. They are the only golfers in the field to not only break par, but be even or better.
Furyk, who is playing with Woods’ former caddie Mike “Fluff” Cowan, shot a 1-under par, the third best score of the day.
A major story from the second round however was the play of 17 year-old amateur Beau Hossler, who remarkably had the lead for a short period of time in the second round, before struggling on the front eight. Still, he did make a remarkable chip in on the seventh hole to stay in contention.
Television coverage will get under way on NBC at 2pm on Saturday and Sunday. Here are the other events I’ll be watching:
