Tiger Woods starts fast as Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson struggle in Round 1 at U.S. Open

SAN FRANCISCO
-- Tiger Woods got off to a strong start at the 2012 U.S. Open, posting a one-under 69 in his opening round Thursday morning at the Olympic Club to get near the top of the leaderboard.

His play at the difficult Olympic course -- which he attacked methodically with controlled drives, accurate irons and careful putting -- left Woods in excellent position in his quest to win his 15th major championship.

Looking for his 4th US OPEN title, Tiger Woods is even with Jim Furyk and David Toms heading into Saturday.

Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell tied at Olympic; Woods five back



SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- While Tiger Woods tumbled down the leaderboard, Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk shared the top spot heading into the final round of the U.S. Open.

McDowell stuck his approach to 4-feet on the 18th hole to set up a birdie for a 2-under 68 on Saturday. Furyk followed moments later with a 15-foot putt on the 17th to regain a share of the lead, and closed with a par for a 70.

At 1 under, the two major champions are the only players at the unforgiving Olympic Club course under par.

Fredrik Jacobson shot a 68 to move two strokes back.

Woods wasted his share of the 36-hole lead with six bogeys and only one birdie for a 75. The 14-time major champion will begin the final round five shots back.

Congrats to Webb Simpson. Would have been happy with a Furyk victory, but Webb held it together down the stretch.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Your new U.S. Open champion is a 26-year-old father of one with another on the way. He admits to a weakness for Bojangles biscuits and fried chicken, inspired the USGA to change one of the Rules of Golf, and missed his last two cuts coming into the season's second major at Olympic Club.

James Frederick "Webb" Simpson, who broke through with two victories in 2011 but was in the midst of an unremarkable 2012, carded his second straight 68 at fog-shrouded Olympic for a one-over total and a one-shot victory over Graeme McDowell (73) and Michael Thompson (67) at the 112th Open on Sunday.

"One of my thoughts on the back nine was, 'I don't know how Tiger has won 14 of these things,'" Simpson said, "because the pressure -- I couldn't feel my legs most of the back nine."

McDowell birdied the 17th hole and had a chance to force a Monday playoff, but his birdie putt from 24 feet on the 18th hole wasn't close, missing left. Simpson and his wife, Dowd, watching cell phone videos of their son, James, in an effort to remain calm, hugged after McDowell's ball eased past the hole
