Phil Mickelson got himself into quite a deep hole right away in the first two rounds of the 2012 U.S. Open. While Mickelson managed to just avoid missing the cut, the notoriously difficult course at the Olympic Club in San Francisco simply ate him up, along with a host of other big-name golfers. Heading into Saturday's third round, Mickelson is at 7-over and is chasing a trio of golfers atop the leaderboard at 1-under, including Tiger Woods.
The field has narrowed considerably as many of the world's best golfers found themselves utterly unable to solve the Grand Slam course. That course will get even more difficult in the third and fourth rounds.
