SAN FRANCISCO, June 16 (UPI) -- Graeme McDowell fired a 2-under-par 68 Saturday, forging a tie with Jim Furyk atop the leaderboard after three rounds of the U.S. Open Championship.

Furyk, meanwhile, posted an even-par 70. He and McDowell are knotted at 1-under 209 after 54 holes of the 112th U.S. Open at The Olympic Club.

Climbing into sole possession of third place at 1-over 211 was Fredrik Jacobson, who also carded a 68.

Matching the low round of the day with a 3-under 67 was third-ranked Lee Westwood, who ended the day in a fourth-place tie with two-time champion Ernie Els (68), Nicolas Colsaerts (71) and Blake Adams (70).

Second co-leader Tigers Woods, a three-time U.S. Open winner, stumbled Saturday. He fell to a 5-over 75, finishing the day in a tie for 14th place at 4-over-par 214.
