US Open 2012: High Scores Still Expected Through Round 3

Despite the water treatment earlier in the day, scores are still expected to soar through the third round of the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California. While it may be early in the day, the front nine on Saturday is proving that players are still struggling with the challenging course at Olympic.

Despite the course being somewhat softer than it was through the first two days, the first half of players who have already started their rounds are a combined 38-over par on the day. Only five players are under par, all of which are one-under.

Of the groups on the course, Alex Cejka is 1-under through five and 6-over for the tournament. Keegan Bradley, Adam Scott and Morgan Freeman are also at 6-over, seven shots back of the lead. Phil Mickelson is even-par through five, still at 7-over for the tournament.
