2012 US Open: The Final Round at Olympic

The Olympic Club has been the perfect course for the US Open this year as the course has been claiming so many victims with only two players above even par in leaders Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell at -1. Not many players have been able to stay at the top of the leaderboard as both Tiger Woods and David Toms dropped out of the lead yesterday. This year's US Open should have an exciting finish so who will win this year's US Open?

The winner of this year's US Open will not come from +4 or worse which means that Tiger Woods will not be winning this year's US Open. So, why can't Tiger or anyone else come from +4 or farther back? It will be hard for anyone to shoot a 67 or 68 especially as Furyk and McDowell will probably not fall down below +1 or +2 at the worse. Also, the US Open always plays really hard on Sunday and it may be almost impossible to go under par. Also, the winner of the US Open will not be an amateur like Beau Hossler as his lack of experience and John Peterson will not turn that hole-in-one magic into a US Open victory. Jason Dufner is the only guy a +3 with a shot at winning as Dufner has been in contention in other majors before. A veteran who has been in contetion previously will win this tournament so don't expect Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts or American Blake Adams to win.

This tournament will come down to Graeme McDowell, Jim Furyk, Fredrik Jacobson, Lee Westwood, Ernie Els, and Jason Dufner. Dufner is the super sleeper for today's final round but Dufner is just too far back to win his first major. Ernie Els is only in contention because of an eagle he had yesterday and Els will not win another major here in San Francisco. Fredrik Jacobson has been in contention in the past but he will not take a US Open victory back to Sweden. Lee Westwood will win a major at some point in his career but this will not be it. It will come down to Graeme McDowell against Jim Furyk for the trophy as Furyk knows this could be his last chance to win a major. Furyk knows how to handle and has been consistent all week. Jim Furyk will shoot a 69 today and win the US Open at -2, one ahead of Graeme McDowell.
