SAN FRANCISCO – We now have a tie at the top of the leaderboard after Jim Furyk bogeyed the unlucky 13th hole and the specter of an 18-hole playoff on Monday looms large.
Furyk missed the green short and right at the par 3, then chipped to 10 feet above the hole and missed the putt. He’s now 1 over for the tournament and tied with Webb Simpson.
Furyk’s playing partner, Graeme McDowell, is tied at 2 over with Michael Thompson, who is in the clubhouse likely watching on TV. Ernie Els was at that number, too, but he missed the 16th green left and tried to putt his fourth up the closely mown area only to see it roll back down on the way to a bogey.
