2012 U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard: Jim Furyk Takes Control Of The Lead, Tiger Woods Struggles

Round 4 of the 2012 U.S. Open is underway, and Jim Furyk has taken sole control of the lead. Graeme McDowell, who opened the day tied with Furyk, picked up a bogey on holes three and five to move him to 1-over and in second place. He's joined there by Ernie Els, who picked up a beautiful eagle on hole seven to tie for second.

Tiger Woods had an opportunity as the day opened to advance on the leaders, but that opportunity has been lost. He would have needed to play incredibly well to recover from the 75 he shot on Saturday, and he was unable to do so. He picked up four bogeys and a double bogey in the first six, and though he's settled since then at 5-over for the day and 9-over for the tournament he appears to be out of the running.

Long Beach's Patrick Cantlay, the UCLA Bruin amateur, shot a 72 on the day and finished the tournament at 11-over, leaving him in 41st place. 17 year old Beau Hossler has had a better day, only 2-over through 10.
