2012 U.S. Open Golf Leaderboard: Jason Dufner Cards 1-Over 35 On Front To Stay Five Strokes Off Lead

Jason Dufner certainly isn't feeling the pressure at the 112th U.S. Open Championship, and the Cleveland native continues to string together pars and remains firmly in the hunt after completing his front nine on Sunday.

Dufner entered the day at 3-over par and four strokes away from leaders Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk, and aside from a bogey at No. 2, has been playing quite well in his final round. Dufner reeled off seven consecutive pars on holes No. 3-9 to card his 35, and will begin a manageable back nine stretch where he'll need to start being a tad more aggressive.

With the course continuing to take its toll on the field, Dufner's current 4-over mark for the tournament is currently good for 8th place, but he remains just one stroke away from 4th place contenders. Knowing the sheer unpredictability that has plagued major tournaments in the past, Dufner could benefit from posting a strong score in the clubhouse while the leaders toil away on the course.
