2012 U.S. Open: Tiger Woods Moves To 1-Under

Tiger Woods has seemingly put it all together at the Olympic Club after moving into red numbers for the first time this week at the 2012 U.S. Open, while the rest of the field seems to be feeling his wake at the Lakes course.

Tiger began his day on the back nine, firing an even par 36 after a bogey on the 14th and birdie on the 17th. He then moved on to the difficult front side, where after staying the course through the first three holes, sank a solid birdie putt on the par-4 fourth, than followed that up with a 45 foot birdie on the next hole to move to 2-under. Unfortunately he gave a shot back on the sixth after finding the greenside bunker.

Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson, Tiger's playing partners in the first two rounds, have gotten out of the gate horribly as Lefty sits at 6-over and Bubba 8-over through the first 13 holes of the day. They will certainly in danger of missing the cut if they can't get it together.
