U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard 2012: Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods Both Struggle In Final Round

Round 4 of the 2012 U.S. Open continues as Sunday afternoon draws closer to Sunday Evening, and as the leaders begin to make their way to the heart of the course the day is finishing up for others. One of those is Arizona State University grad Phil Mickelson, who had a rough day to cap a rough tournament. Mickelson shot a 78 in Round 4, higher than his opening round 76 and enough to put him 8-over on the day and at +16 overall. He opened the day +8 overall and a strong day might have moved him quite a ways up the board, but the challenging course and the change in the weather proved to be too much.

Elsewhere on the course, Tiger Woods' luck isn't looking much better than Mickelson's was. After starting the day 5-over tiger collected four bogeys and a double bogey in the first six holes, and now stands 5-over through eight and 9-over for the tournament. Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk have both started their round and remain even, both shooting par on the first two holes. It looks to be their tournament to lose, but there's still a good deal of golf left to play.
