McDowell Leads British Charge As Tiger Falters

Social Sharing: 

Graeme McDowellAn enthralling evening of golf awaits in San Francisco on Sunday with a host of players still in with a shout of coming away as the US Open champion. Graeme Mcdowell produced a superb round of 68 to get himself right in the mix and be in with a share of the lead with three rounds gone and a repeat of yesterday’s solid performance will get him there or there abouts, as he looks for his second US Open title in three years (Graeme Mcdowell 11/4 to win the US Open). Jim Furyk sits alongside him on one-under par and he has probably been the most consistent player so far with rounds of 70, 69 and another 70 on his card (Jim Furyk 5/2 to win the US Open). He has worked his way round this difficult test brilliantly throughout the opening three days and he will be hoping to continue this play on Sunday, as he also goes after his second US Open title.

Surprisingly Tiger Woods fell back on moving day only managing one birdie in a round of 75 that leaves him five shots back and with it all to do. He looked a shadow of the man who had done so brilliantly to be in a tie for the lead at the half-way stage and was wayward on far too many occasions leaving him far too much to do on a course that is extremely unforgiving. If anyone can recover from his position though it is Tiger himself and on this course anything is possible if the front two fail to produce the goods (Tiger Woods 12/1 to win the US Open). There are numerous other potential winners lurking within a few shots of the lead with Lee Westwood charging yesterday with a round of 67. Westwood is now three back on two over par and knows he is right in the thick of things with only one round to go (Lee Westwood 5/1 to win the US Open).

Frederik Jacobson is in sole possession of third place on one over par and the Swede has a knack for performing at the US Open. His putting has been exemplary throughout these three days and don’t be surprised if you see him coming through to make a challenge on Sunday (Frederik Jacobson 14/1 to win the US Open).  Ernie Els is another who had a superb moving day with a 68 that brought him to within three shots of the lead and the ‘Big Easy’ will be hopeful of rolling back the years and challenging come the back nine (Ernie Els 14/1 to win the US Open). Seventeen-year old Beau Hossler is also still in the mix on three over par and he has looked far more experienced that his age would suggest working his way round this course brilliantly and in with a serious shot at a top ten finish at least (Beau Hossler 100/1 to win the US Open).
