Gary Woodland heads into the final round of the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach on top of the leaderboard, in search of his first career major championship. He’ll have his work cut out for him.
Woodland is 11 under for the tournament and has a one-shot lead, but a handful of major champions are within striking distance. Justin Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion, has sole possession of second place at 10 under. Brooks Koepka, the two-time defending U.S. Open champ, Louis Oosthuizen and Chez Reavie are tied for third at 7 under. Rory McIlroy sits at 6 under.
A couple of golf’s biggest names played themselves out of contention in the third round Saturday. Tiger Woods overcame what he called a “crap start” to finish the round at even par, but he’s also even par for the tournament and 11 shots off the lead. Phil Mickelson shot his worst score of the week with a 75 and dropped to a tie for 48th place.
