2012 U.S. Open: Tiger Woods Tied For Lead; Hunter Mahan Is 9th

After the first two rounds of the 2012 U.S. Open, there is a trio of players tied for first place in Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and David Toms. All three of those golfers managed to shoot 1-under par in the difficult Olympic Club course.

Woods nearly fell apart early on as he started the day by bogeying the fifth, sixth and seventh holes to tumble down the leaderboard, but Woods recovered to go 2-under par over the final 11 holes. After two rounds Woods ended up shooting an even par for his second round.

Hunter Mahan is in contention as he is tied for ninth place at 3-over par, but is in contention as he is only four strokes behind the leader. His second round was all over the place as it included four birdies, two bogies and the rare triple-bogey on the sixth hole. Had Mahan just made par on the hole he would be at even par for the tournament and one back of the leaders.

Here is a look at the current leaderboard.
