2012 U.S. Open Golf Results: Webb Simpson Wins The U.S. Open

After four excruciating and yet exhilarating rounds of golf, Webb Simpson can finally relax and rest easy with his first major victory. Simpson really had to earn it in the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club of San Francisco, where the course did favors for no one.

Simpson won with a fantastic final round on Sunday to polish off a struggling Jim Furyk, who just couldn't finish out the tournament in style. Graeme McDowell was right there all weekend, but he couldn't find a way to defeat Simpson in the end.

Furyk, a native of West Chester, PA, ended up in a tie for fourth. It was tough to watch Furyk down the stretch missing badly on multiple shots. The effort was there but unfortunately the execution wasn't.

Tiger Woods never did make any noise on Sunday. After looking like a world-beater the first two days, Woods had a horrid 75 on Saturday.

The real story was Simpson, who found a way to get it done despite trailing most of the day. Much of his success can be attributed to his sensational run of four birdies in five holes coming around the turn.

U.S. Open Championship Winner 2012: Webb Simpson Wins At Olympic Club, Jim Furyk Falters Late

Jim Furyk held at least a share of the lead at the 2012 U.S. Open through 15 holes Sunday. A bogey on No. 16 put him one shot back from Webb Simpson, however, who shot a 2-under 68 and waited in the clubhouse for Furyk to finish. As the weather turned gloomy at the Olympic Club, Simpson won his first major title from the warm indoors.

Simpson's day got off to a rocky start. He bogeyed holes No. 2 and 5 to put himself at 2-over through five holes. He then reeled off birdies on four of his next five holes to put himself within a stroke of Furyk. He parred the rest of the way, then waited and hoped for the normally disciplined Furyk to make mistakes.

Furyk bogeyed on the par-3 No. 13 to give Simpson a share of the lead. On No. 16, his shot to the green took a bad bounce off the front edge of the rough, and rolled back nearly to the lip of the bunker. What should have been a manageable putt for par turned into a difficult chip and Furyk had to settle for bogey, giving Simpson the lead for good.

Furyk finished in a tie for fourth after a bogey on No. 18 put him at 3-over for the Open. Michael Thompson shot 67 on Sunday, shaking off a 75 and a 75 on Friday and Saturday to make a late rush up the leaderboard, tying Graeme McDowell for second place one stroke back from Simpson. David Toms, Padraig Harrington, John Peterson and Jason Dufner all finished at 3-over overall, just two shots off the lead.

2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard: Jim Furyk Leads Field Around Turn

Jim Furyk still leads the field at the 2012 U.S. Open through nine holes Sunday, though a charging Webb Simpson has made things interesting. Furyk is 1-over on the day coming around the turn, and even overall. He holds a one stroke lead over Simpson, who has now birdied four of his last six holes through 11.

Furyk, a West Chester, PA, native, has just one blemish on the day, a bogey on No. 6. There are several birdie opportunities on the back nine, at least relative to the front, so he can still expand his lead. He birdied No. 11 and No. 17 on Saturday. Simpson was 2-over through his first five holes Sunday before turning up the pressure.

John Peterson and Michael Thompson are just two shots off the lead. Thompson shot 3-under Sunday to put himself in a position to win the U.S. Open from the clubhouse with some help from the two men ahead of him. Peterson is 1-under Sunday with three holes still to play.

U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Jason Bohn Finishes 8-Over-Par On Sunday, 21-Over-Par For Tournament

Lewisburg, PA native Jason Bohn has finished his final round at the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. Bohn finished 8-over-par on Sunday and 21-over-par for the tournament.

Bohn did well to make the cut and play on the weekend but was unable to sustain his performance from Thursday and Friday with a pair of 8-over-par 78 rounds on Saturday and Sunday. Bohn had two double bogeys and one triple bogey on Sunday, his highest total for any day of the tournament. While he was 4 of 7 on sand saves, Bohn only hit 50% of the fairways in regulation and 45.32% of greens in regulation at the U.S. Open.

Bohn's rounds have him currently in 71st place. The only other U.S. Open for Bohn (2008) ended early when he didn't make the cut. West Chester native Jim Furyk is currently tied with Graeme McDowell for the lead at 1-under-par. Neither golfer has hit the first tee of their Sunday round yet.

U.S. Open Golf 2012: Jim Furyk On The Olympic Course, Strategy, Tiger Woods And More

Jim Furyk, a native of West Chester, PA, is tied for the lead after three rounds in the 2012 U.S. Open, sitting with Graeme McDowell at 1-under. He gave an interview following Round 3 where he discussed the course, what he expects for Sunday's Round 4, and what he saw from Tiger Woods, who started Round 3 tied for first but slipped back during Saturday's play.

On the course conditions at the Olympic Club, Furyk is expecting more of what they saw on Saturday:

The greens are starting to look stressed. And 15 was one that came to mind. And I think it was because they moved that tee up so much. They kept that green pretty firm and glossy. 18 looked pretty baked out. I was nervous that putt was going to be quicker than it was.

I expect it to get firm. I expect it to get faster and the greens to be maybe a touch quicker. The golf course is going to play difficult.

Success on a course like that, according to Furyk, comes from driving the ball well, playing for pars, and making the most of the chances you get. "You just have to be patient and wait for those moments," he said, "instead of trying to force them."

Asked about Tiger Woods, Furyk noted his struggles but wouldn't count him out:

So he's 5 shots back. I think he's probably disappointed with the 18th hole. And 16, 17, 18 with the finish, being 3‑over par, if he gets it in with a birdie or so on the way in, he's only two shots back, to make two bogeys and maybe five back is probably disappointing.

He's come from farther back before. And I don't think he's really too worried about the disarray, or I forget what the other term you used, at the moment. He's probably already flipped the page and worried about what he needs to do to play well tomorrow.

Furyk is paired with McDowell, and the two tee off at 6:10pm EDT.

U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Jim Furyk Favored To Win

Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell are tied for the lead entering the final round of play in the 2012 U.S. Open. Both men are currently at 1-under, the only golfers under par through three rounds. Furyk is a slight favorite to win, but if the course at San Francisco's Olympic Club offers daily reminders than anything can happen.

None other than Tiger Woods proved that lesson on Saturday. Entering the day on top, Woods shot at 75 in the third round and is now sitting at 4-over.

Furyk has 9/4 odds to win, and in three rounds he has never been over par. That explains his edge over McDowell who shot at 72 in the second round before pulling into a tie for the lead with a 68 on Saturday.

Jim Furyk 9/4
Graeme McDowell 5/2

U.S. Open Golf 2012: Tiger Woods & Jim Furyk Tied Heading Into Weekend

Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk & David Toms all claim a share of the lead as the 3rd round of the 2012 U.S. Open Championship gets underway this morning at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. The trio sit at 1-under on the notoriously tough course.

"This golf course is just so tricky out there. It's so fast," said Woods after his round yesterday.

"With this setup and as firm and as fast as it is, fun might not be the first word that comes out,: said Furyk. "It's draining both mentally and physically. You have to be on top of your game the whole time."

David Toms wouldn't go so far as to say the course is unfair, but he says it makes players look silly sometimes.

"It will make you do some crazy things trying to hit shots to a front pin from 220 yards that you come up 30 or 40 yards short of the green but you know if you land it on the green you're going to be chipping from the back. So things like that will make you look kind of silly sometimes, but it is a fair test."

Furyk says he doesn't know exactly what to expect out of the Olympic as this weekend wears on.

"It might be firming up a little bit. I wouldn't be surprised if the greens are just a touch quicker today, especially this afternoon. But it's definitely changed from Monday, Tuesday to now. I expect we'll probably see a little bit of a transformation to the weekend after today as well."

The first pairing tees off at 9:15 a.m. this morning. As for the leaders, David Toms starts at 2:55 p.m. while the final pair of Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk leaves 10 minutes later at 3:05

Beau Hossler, the 17-year old who briefly seized the lead on Saturday, dropped into a tie for ninth at 3-over and has 250-1 odds entering the third round.

U.S. Open 2012: Live Updates, TV Schedule, Watch Online, Tee Times And Pairings And More

Saturday brings us Round 3 of the 2012 U.S. Open, with Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, and David Toms sitting tied for first. There are multiple ways to catch the action, all of which are detailed below, along with a full schedule of tee times and pairings.

Streaming Online: Online Coverage via NBC Sports starting at 4:00pm EDT, as well as live video of holes 8 & 18 from USOpen.com starting at 1:00pm PDT.

Jim Furyk spoke yesterday about he sees the course setting up this weekend.

"It's getting firmer and faster and the ball is going farther off the tee because it. The ball is chasing. But we played in very similar wind conditions all week from Monday on. The wind's basically blowing from the west somewhere. Usually from the west, southwest, but it's blowing from that direction.

The golf course has played pretty similar. I'm maybe not hitting 3‑wood off some tees that I was hitting driver on Monday and Tuesday, and that could turn to hybrid later on in the week if it keeps baking out."

David Toms will enter the weekend with a share of the lead and he talked about the level of difficulty with the course this week.

"It will make you do some crazy things trying to hit shots to a front pin from 220 yards that you come up 30 or 40 yards short of the green but you know if you land it on the green you're going to be chipping from the back. So things like that will make you look kind of silly sometimes, but it is a fair test."

2012 U.S. Open Golf Scores And Results: Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk And David Toms Tied For First After 2 Rounds

Round 2 of the 2012 U.S. Open wrapped up Friday evening, and while many golfers improved their Round 1 scores the course was still a significant challenge. A three way tie for first has developed, with West Chester native Jim Furyk tied with Tiger Woods and David Toms at 1-under. Furyk was 1-under for the day, improving from his par in Round 1, while Woods and Toms both moved up a stroke, hitting par after posting 69 on Thursday. Lewisburg, PA native Jason Bohn struggled in Round 2, posting a 75 after hitting an even par 70 in Round 1. He sits at 5-over and tied for 28th place, well in front of the cut at.

The cut looks to be at +8, meaning some notable names will be headed home for the weekend. 2011 U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy improved on Round 1's 77, but his 73 left him at 3-over on the day and 10-over through two, ending his tournament. Bubba Watson ended Friday's play at 9-over, just missing the cut despite two late birdies on holse 15 and 17. Phil Mickelson just snuck under the line, picking up a birdie on hole 18 to settle at 1-over for the day and 7-over for the tournament thus far.

A full leaderboard is available at USOpen.com. There's still a lot of golf to be played, so the tournament is still wide open. The pressure only mounts, so Saturday should see some great golf.

U.S. Open Cut Line 2012: Cut Projected At +8, Eliminating Some Notable Names

Only the top 60 players (including ties) will move on to Round 3 of the 2012 U.S. Open, and right now the cut is projected at an overall score of +8. West Chester's own Jim Furyk has no need to be concerned about that, sitting tied for first at 1-under. He's tied there with Tiger Woods, who is showing some of his more recent good form. Lewisburg, PA native Jason Bohn is also secure, currently tied for 41st place at 6-over. They may be safe, but some notable names will not be playing this weekend.

2011 U.S. Open winner Rory McIlroy is one of those names, who is well above the cut at 10-over. He shot at 77 in Round 1 and a 73 in Round 2, falling prey to 2012's significantly more difficult course. 2012 Masters winner Bubba Watson is also at +10 and will likely not see Round 3.

2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard: Jim Furyk Even Through First Round

Jim Furyk finished his first round at the 2012 U.S. Open at even-par, putting him four shots off Michael Thompson's field-leading 4-under and one shot back off the likes of Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Graeme McDowell. The course at the Olympic Club is as unforgiving as they come but Furyk wrangled it well, making par on 16 of 18 holes.

The West Chester, PA, native was 1-under after nine holes after making birdie on the par 4 No. 6 hole. The first six holes at Olympic are perhaps the hardest of the course. The fact that Furyk came out of the stretch under par had to be encouraging as he stared down the final nine holes and potential birdie opportunities on 16, 17 and 18.

Fury didn't finish quite as strongly as he started, however. He bogeyed on No. 12 before closing Thursday out by making par on the final six holes. Still, considering the difficult of the course, Furyk should be very happy to be in striking distance of the lead after the first day.

Furyk was solid on the green, averaging 1.78 putts per hole. He hit 18 of 14 greens in regulation and landed on eight of 14 fairways.

U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Jim Furyk Makes Turn At 1-Under-Par, Three Shots Back

West Chester, PA native and 2003 U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk finished his first nine holes at the 2012 U.S. Open at 1-under-par, which puts him three shots off the leader in the clubhouse Michael Thompson.

Furyk is currently tied with three-time U.S. Open champ Tiger Woods (seven others) for second place in the tournament on Thursday. Furyk made a birdie on hole #6 (a par 4 hole) to put him under par for the first nine holes. He's been doing a great job of hitting fairways and greens in regulation and kept his number of putts down. The leader had four birdies on the back nine. Stay tuned to see if Furyk can do something similar and take or share the lead after the first day at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA.

2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Not Far Off Lead After 1-Under-Par First Round

Three-time U.S. Open champion tiger Woods is in sight of the leader Michael Thompson after Thursday's round at the 2012 U.S. Open Championship at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.

Thompson shot a 4-under-par 66 in his first round while Woods shot a 1-under-par 69. Woods hit 11 of 18 greens in regulation and 10 of 14 fairways. Woods had a much better round than the other two players in his group. Phil Mickelson shot a 6-over-par 76 on Thursday while Bubba Watson fared even worse with an 8-over-par 78.

According to Woods after his round, all he did was stick to his game plan. "I played well today. I felt like I had control of my game all day and just stuck to my game plan and executed my game plan." Woods also said the course changed a lot from the day before. "I was really really surprised at how much it had changed from last night or from yesterday. We teed off the same time yesterday and it wasn't that bad. Come out here today and it's just like they used sub air on the whole place and it was just quick. And we had to make the adjustments and I felt like I did that today." (via ASAP Sports)

Woods will be paired with Mickelson and Watson again on Friday. The trio will tee off at 4:18 p.m. Eastern.

U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Jason Bohn Enters Clubhouse Tied For Fourth Place After Opening 70

Jason Bohn completed a stellar opening round at the 2012 U.S. Open on Thursday, entering the clubhouse tied for fourth place after an even-par 70.

Bohn, a Lewisburg, PA native, made the turn at 2-under par and reached 3-under before giving three shots back with bogeys at the 14th, 17th and 18 holes. He finished the day with three birdies against those three bogeys at the unforgiving Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA.

At the time Bohn finished his round, only three players were under par.

Other notables include Tiger Woods, who demonstrated great control over his swing en route to being 1-under par (tied for second place) through 16 holes at the time Bohn finished. Rory McIlroy does not tee off until 4:29 p.m. ET.

U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Jason Bohn Alone In Third After Front Nine

Jason Bohn made the turn Thursday during the first round of the 2012 U.S. Open at 2-under par, one shot off the lead shared by Kevin Na and Branden Grace.

Bohn, a Lewisburg, PA native, opened with a birdie at hole No. 1 and added another birdie at No. 7, parring the other seven holes on the front nine.

Bohn failed to make the cut during his only previous U.S. Open appearance in 2008. At the time he made the turn, only eight golfers were under par at the treacherous Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA.

The featured group of Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson were not as impressive battling the brutal course. After eight holes, Woods was 1-over par. Mickelson and Watson were both 4-over.

U.S. Open 2012: No Time Like The Present For Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods enters the 2012 U.S. Open as the favorite to win golf's second major tournament of the year. The people who run the numbers on this sort of thing gave him 13/2 odds on Wednesday morning, a day before the opening round of the tournament.

Of course, Woods was also favored at the Masters. Is there something different working in his favor this time? In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Woods explained his status entering the U.S. Open:

"When I went into Augusta, I did not feel comfortable," he said. "I got back into a lot of my old patterns." By contrast this week, he said, he has retained the rock solid control he had at Memorial, where he hit 13 of 14 fairways. That's a good omen for the notoriously tight fairways of a U.S. Open. His weakest statistic at Memorial was putting. But he said he holed all the critical short putts he faced. The odds makers have Woods as the favorite this week.

Woods will have be swinging straight and true at The Olympic Club, one of the most unforgiving places to play. SB Nation's Brian Floyd explains the task at hand for Woods:

There's no question Woods is the favorite, but he was at The Masters, too. And we all saw what happened. If he's striking the ball well -- and he's been pretty good during his practice rounds -- watch out. If he's fighting his swing, his week will spiral out of control in a hurry. The Olympic Course is too punishing for his swing to be even just a bit off.

Woods tees off Thursday morning at 7:33 a.m.

2012 U.S. Open Golf: Olympic Club Course Tutorial

Don't expect any scoring records to be set this weekend at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA.

The site of the 2012 U.S. Open is "brutal," writes SB Nation's Brian Floyd, and Masters champion Bubba Watson agrees. He said he doesn't like the course because he doesn't want to shoot an 80.

Floyd put together a course tutorial which is required reading for anyone who wants to know more about the Olympic Club. It details the difficult 16th, 17th and 18th holes and describes the opening six holes as "a brutal stretch that can quickly derail a round before it truly gets started."

U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Tiger Woods Remains The Favorite

The 2012 U.S. Open is less than 24 hours from getting underway at the beautiful Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.

While predictions are being tossed around like spare change, BOVADA has listed Tiger Woods as their favorite at 13/2 odds on Wednesday morning.

Woods has been installed as the man to beat after his victory at Jack Nicklaus' course just a few weeks ago. He's almost been given twice the odds that Luke Donald and Lee Westwood have been slapped with at 11/1 odds heading into the last day before the action gets going.

Phil Mickelson is a very intriguing bet at 20/1 while Rory McIlroy comes in at 14/1. McIlroy hasn't been on his game recently, but sometimes the majors have a funny way of bringing out greatness in champions.

Jim Furyk, the West Chester, PA native is at 33/1, a huge improvement from his 80/1 chances just a few days ago. Furyk knows how to win this tournament as he took home the glory in 2003.

Here's a list of the odds as of Wednesday morning:

Tigers Woods 13/2

Luke Donald: 11/1

Lee Westwood: 11/1

Rory McIlroy: 14/1

Phil Mickelson: 20/1

Dustin Johnson: 25/1

Jason Dufner: 25/1

Justin Rose: 28/1

Matt Kuchar: 28/1

Adam Scott: 33/1

Jim Furyk: 33/1

Rickie Fowler: 33/1

U.S. Open 2012: Tiger Woods Talks Day One Pairing With Phil Mickelson

Two names have more or less dominated the world of golf over the last decade. Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. Thursday morning, Woods & Mickelson, along with Masters champ Bubba Watson will tee off together for the first round of the 2012 US Open.

Woods was asked if there would be any extra motivation playing with the guy who has essentially been his chief rival over his career?

"I don't think we're going to talk about a lot," said Woods. "This is a Major championship. We've got work to do. Any extra motivation? No. I'm just trying to get out there and position myself for Sunday.

It's such a test playing in this championship. I think this is one of those championships that I think the guys talk the least to one another because it's so difficult."

The last time Tiger was paired with Phil was in 2008, when he last won the US Open.

"Well, it's different for us ever to be paired up in the same group, first of all. That never happens. We try to spread it around a little bit. That's why 2008 was so different for us. Because on the Tour we never get that pairing.
For us to get that pairing was exciting I think for everyone and I think this year will be the same."

Tiger finally broke his slump with a win at the Memorial and now comes into this Open as the odds on favorite. However, most pundits feel its too early to say Tiger is "back" until he wins a major. But Tiger says that's unlikely to silence his critics.

"I think even if I do win a Major championship, it will still be, you're not to 18 yet, or when will you get to 19. It's always something with you guys. I've dealt with that my entire career, ever since I was an amateur and playing all the way through and to professional golf, it hasn't changed."

This doesn't mean he's still not coming after Jack's record though...

"Well, Jack did it at 46, right? So I've got ten [years]. Watson almost pulled it off at 59. It can be done. We can play for a very long time. And that's the great thing about staying in shape and lifting weights and being fit is that the playing careers have extended. Look how many guys are 50 plus still playing out here. And Tom Pernice just came back out and started playing. Guys are extending their careers and playing for a lot longer than they used to. Most of the guys used to shut it down in early 40s. Bu like Vijay, he won almost 30 events, just in his 40s alone."

You can watch the all star pairing of Tiger, Phil and Bubba streamed live on USOpen.com.
