Johnson’s the leader but Woods is close behind at U.S. Open

compiled from staff and wire reports

Dustin Johnson is the leader at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. He usually plays well on the course located in in the Monterrey Peninsula.

Tiger Woods turned in a terrific round of golf on Saturday but Johnson, playing in the afternoon showed why he is the leader going into Sunday.

Johnson, the two-time defending champion in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, overpowered and controlled the course and birdied the last holes, hitting a 6-iron onto the green from the rough on the par-5 18th. That wrapped a day of 5-under-par 66, giving him a three-shot lead over second-round leader Graeme McDowell.

McDowell struggled down the back stretch and fell out of the lead on the 17th and finished with an even par 71.

Tiger Woods is alone in third place, five strokes back after a 66 of his own. He is finally looking like the world’s number 1 golfer.

He was nine shots out of the lead after a pair of sloppy bogeys early in Saturday’s round, Woods finally found his stride by making clutch putts and produced extraordinary shots that no one has seen since his return to competition two months ago.

One of those shots was a curling, downhill birdie on the 17th.

He followed that up with a 3-wood on the 18th, shooting it around a cypress tree and out towards the Pacific Ocean and onto the green about 15 feet for a two-putt birdie. It was his eighth birdie of the round, the most in his career for a U.S. Open.

That fantastic Saturday put Woods in the hunt for a 15th major, and second U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Phil Mickelson, who was second after Friday’s round, stumbled from the first hole and had huge troubles on the holes closest to the Pacific Coast and even played one shot on his off-hand, right-handed.

Mickelson, a runner-up in the U.S. Open a record five times, would up with a 73 and is seven shots out of the lead.
