Woods remains on course

Updated: June 16, 2012

Former Major winners Tiger Woods, David Toms and Jim Furyk hold the 36-hole lead at the US Open having scrapped their way to one-under-par.

The trio are the only men left under par after two rounds at the Olympic Course, with the world’s top two players, Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy – having missed the cut.

With the cut mark set at eight-over-par, defending champion McIlroy followed his 77 on Thursday with a much-improved 73 on Friday to end on ten-over for the tournament. Donald was one stroke further adrift, with the Englishman adding a 72 to his first round 79.

At the other end of the field, Woods bounced back strongly from three consecutive bogeys from the fifth to seventh hole to hit a par round of 70.
