2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard Update: Casey Wittenberg With The Best Round Of The Tournament

The Olympic Club course at the 2012 U.S. Open has confounded golfers for the better part of two days, but Casey Wittenberg of Memphis, TN may have finally figured the course out.

Wittenberg shot a 67 on Saturday afternoon, the lowest score of the tournament thus far. He now sits at -3 under par, good for the lead at the moment with the current leaders, Tiger Woods, Jum Furyk and David Toms all teeing a little whle ago.

Wittenberg bogeyed the first and fifth holes, his only miscues of the day as he went on to make par on 12 holes, birdies on three and an eagle on the par four seventh hole. It'll be interesting to see if his score holds as the remaining golfers play their way through the course.
