Saturday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the winners and losers on Day 3 at Oak Hill? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys

August 10, 2013
Jim Furyk

Birdie: Jim Furyk

The way Jim Furyk sees it, his position is simple. "There's going to be a winning score tomorrow," he said. "Whatever that score is, I don't have to shoot as low as everyone else." So there. For the third time in his career, Furyk will take at least a share of the lead into the final round of a major, his third-round 68 giving him a one-shot cushion over Jason Dufner. The first time he had such a lead, Furyk claimed his lone major title at the 2003 U.S. Open. The second time was last year, when he shared the Open lead with Graeme McDowell, but ended up blowing it late and finishing two strokes back. This time? Who knows? But thanks to a rare birdie on the brutal par-4 17th and his 15-foot par putt on 18, Furyk is in a better position than anyone else.
