Round 4 of the 2012 U.S. Open is underway, and the leaders are just beginning to tee off. Tiger Woods is struggling early. Long Beach Native and UCLA Bruin Patrick Cantlay has had mixed results through his last round, picking three birdies and a gorgeous eagle throgh 14, but also collecting five bogeys. The eagle came on hole seven on a long drive that caught the bank behind the hole and rolled into place for a clean two on the par four.
Tiger needed to play his absolute best if he wanted to take a run at the lead, and judging by his first three holes it's not going to be his day. He picked up two bogeys on holes one and two and a double bogey on three. On the fourth hole he had a clear shot at a birdie but had a put come up short, forcing him to settle for par. Beau Hossler, the 17 year old who has stunned everyone by hanging in the top ten, has just started out and managed par on the opening hole.
The other leaders are starting to tee off, finishing with Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell at 3:10pm PDT.
