A sole survivor

Phil Mickelson is the single golfer left under par at Merion
When Saturday at Merion was finished, Phil Mickelson was the last man standing under par at the U.S. Open. It’s the first time in his career Mickelson has led outright through 54 holes as he tries to track down the title he’s been chasing his entire career.
Charl Schwartzel went bogey-bogey to end his round and finish Saturday with a 69. That leaves him tied for second with Hunter Mahan and Steve Stricker.
U.S. Open

Leader: Phil Mickelson, who led or owned a share of the top spot after the first two rounds, shot 70 Saturday and at 1 under was the only player in the 73-man field below par.
Pursuers: Hunter Mahan (69), Charl Schwartzel (69) and Steve Stricker (70) were another shot back at even par. Three players – Justin Rose, Luke Donald and Billy Horschel – were at 1 over.
Where’s Tiger?: Tiger Woods shot 76 – tying his worst U.S. Open showing as a pro – and was 9 over and likely out of contention.
Notable: Not even one player managed to make a birdie at No. 18.
Quotable: “At least I started well.” – Woods, who birdied No. 1 and never made another to offset his seven bogeys.
