2012 U.S. Open: Tiger Woods Is Tied For The Lead After 2 Rounds

The 2012 U.S. Open first two rounds have been completed at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, and Tiger Woods is tied atop the leaderboard with Jim Furyk and David Toms at 1-under par. Woods nearly fell out of contention when he started slow and proceeded to bogey the fifth, sixth and seven holes, but Woods would recover from that and shoot 2-under par over the final 11 holes of the round. For the round Woods shot an even par.

The course has been difficult for these professionals since the leaders are the only players shooting under par while other world class golfers struggled.

To make the cut players had to be at 8-over par or better, but that score was too tough to reach for a pair of former major champions. Defending U.S. Open champion Rory McIlory shot a 10-over par and missed the cut as did 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson who ended up shooting 9-over par through two rounds.
