Ernie Els hasn’t won a major championship in 10 years.
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.
Tiger Woods is back on the course with a share of the U.S. Open lead.
The Olympic Club clobbered Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson and Luke Donald in two rounds at the U.S. Open.
This was the first time Woods has shared the lead at a major going into the third round, and the other leaders have some experience.
He shot two respectable rounds on a brutally tough golf course, not bad for a guy who hadn’t competed seriously for six years.
As quick as Tiger Woods grabbed the U.S. Open lead he lost it.
Donald had a 72 on Friday and finished at 11-over 151, missing the cut for the second time in the last four majors.
The sun broke out at the often-foggy Olympic Club in San Francisco for Thursday’s first round of the U.S. Open and more sunny weather is forecast for the weekend.
This year at The Olympic Club, McIlroy might not even be around for the weekend unless he plays better than he did Thursday.
