Past champ Jim Furyk crafted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the 116th U.S. Open to post 1-under 279, up 16 spots on the live leaderboard to T5, good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead and the low lap in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Furyk finished in a three-way T2, three back of champion Dustin Johnson.
The Pennsylvania native and 2003 U.S. Open champ trailed 54-hole leader Shane Lowry by 10 shots after opening his 22nd appearance in 71-68-74, but was just two off the overnight top 10. He kicked off at 1:30 p.m. ET, two hours prior to the final pairing, and landed nine (of 14) fairways, pelted 14 greens in regulation, requiring 28 putts. The 46-year-old birdied Nos. 1, 5, 7, 11 and 17 before trouble off the tee at the par-4 18th led to a lone bogey. It's his first top 10 in just his fifth start of the season, supplanting a previous best of T35 at THE PLAYERS, and his seventh top 10 at the U.S. Open. Jun 19 - 5:54 PM
