2012 U.S. Open: Early Golfers Struggling To Make Par

The third round of the 2012 U.S. Open is underway and the Olympic Club has been a difficult beast to tame for the early golfers on Saturday. The majority of the players are struggling to make par, and so far only 17 of them have managed to be between even and 2-under par. Out of those 17 golfers, nine are still playing their front nine.

The one golfer who has managed to play the course reasonably well is Angel Cabrera, and so far he is at 2-under par through 16 holes. Cabrera has managed three birdies and only one bogey to have the best third round score so far.

There are still over 20 players who have yet to take their first tee, and that includes the three leaders of Tiger Woods, David Toms and Jim Furyk. That trio is currently at 1-under for the tournament and will tee off at 5:05 p.m. CT.
