Round 4 of the 2012 U.S. Open continues at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, and through four holes Jim Furyk has taken sole possession of the lead. Simply by virtue of holding at par, Furyk has passed Graeme McDowell, with whom he opened the day in a tie for the lead.
Tiger Woods has struggled even more in Round 4 than he did in Round 3, standing at 5-over through the first ten. He has settled down a bit since picking up four bogeys and a double bogey in the first five, but any chance he had at closing in on the leaders appears to be gone. Bay Area and Northern California representatives have had a mixed day: Fresno's Nick Watney had the best day, shooting par to finish at 7-over for the tournament, Cal graduate Charlie Wi is 5-over through 12, San Mateo born Michael Allen shot a 73 to finish at 14-over for the tournament and Redding born Jeff Curl shot 5-over to also finish at +14.
Furyk has taken the lead but things are still tremendously close at the top of the leader board, so as Round 4 continues there should be plenty of action among the leaders.
