The 2012 U.S. Open Championship golf tournament at The Olympic Club in San Francisco reportedly has three leaders at the end of the second round on Friday, June 15, 2012. Sharing the top of the 112th US Open leaderboard include Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and David Toms who were all at 1-under 139, according to a published report at PGA.com.

Woods, aiming for his 15th major title, reportedly survived three straight bogeys in the early holes to finished the second round at even-par 70.

According to Woods, he feels much satisfied being tied win Toms and Furyk rather “than missing cuts or just making the cut. So it’s a wonderful place to be with a chance to win your nation’s open.”

Furyk scored a second round of 1-under 69 while Toms played steadily to end his round with a 70. The rest of the field was over par.

During the early holes, 17-year-old Beau Hossler was surprisingly alone on top of the US Open Golf tournament. Hossler went through 11 holes without a bogey. However, he got lost in the front nine to settle for a 73.

The Olympic Club was considered by analysts as the toughest tournament yet and left several notable golfers to miss the second round cut. Among those who did not make the cut include defending champion Rory McIlroy, world’s number one golfer Luke Donald, Masters champion Bubba Watson and last weeks FedEx St. Jude Classic winner, Dustin Johnson.

The full event leaderboard of the event was made available at PGA.com.
