U.S. Open Prize Money 2012: Webb Simpson Takes Home $1.4 Million

With his victory at the 2012 U.S. Open on Sunday, Webb Simpson etched his name into golf history; he also became $1.4 million richer. That was Simpson's prize money for taking home the title— well, $1,440,000 to be exact— after finishing the tournament +1, which was one shot better than second place finishers Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson.

Those two took home $695,216 for their efforts, with the five fourth place finishers— including Padraig Harrington and Jim Furyk, who led for most of the tournament— leaving with $276,841. Ernie Else finished alone in ninth place, which was good for $200,280, leaving the five tenth place finishers— a group that included Retief Goosen and Lee Westwood— to escape San Francisco with $163,594.

University of Illinois graduate Steve Stricker, meanwhile, finished in 15th place and took home $118,969.

U.S. Open Winner 2012: Webb Simpson Wins Tournament With Strong Final Round

Webb Simpson began Sunday's final round four strokes off the lead in the 2012 U.S. Open and did about the best he could under the circumstances to finish at +1. The field came back to him, and when things were said and done, Simpson had captured the 2012 national championship.

Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell entered the day tied for the lead at one-under, but neither one was able to solidify a position at the top of the leaderboard. By the time the pair reached 18 -- with Simpson watching from the club house -- they were both in need of a birdie in order to force a playoff.

Furyk ended up in a bunker to the left of the 18th green and never had a real shot at a birdie. McDowell had set himself up with a makeable birdie putt, but he missed it to the left, sealing Simpson's first career major title.

2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard Update: Furyk Maintains Slight Advantage

While the final round of the 2012 U.S. Open doesn't have either Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson in contention, a congested leaderboard suggests that it could be setup for a fantastic finish on Sunday evening.

Jim Furyk, who entered the final round at The Olympic Club with a share of the lead, has been steady and currently holds a two-stroke lead. Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Webb Simpson and John Peterson are all tied at +2 and remain close to Furyk. Padraig Harrington and Michael Thompson have made a push on Sunday, as both are at -2 so far and sit just three strokes behind Furyk.

After a poor ending to his round on Saturday, Woods has struggled even more on Sunday, dropping down to +9 for the tournament. Mickelson has struggled throughout the tournament and finished at +16.

Two golfers will enter Sunday tied for the lead: Jim Furyk, who was tied for the lead entering Saturday, and Graeme McDowell, who shot a 68 on Saturday to snag a share of the lead. They'll enter the day as the only two players under par (at -1), with Swede Fredrik Jacobson, who is alone in third, teeing off at +1.

U.S. Open Leaderboard Update: Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell Hold Lead After Day 3

Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell, a pair of guys who've already experienced winning the U.S. Open, are tied for the lead at Olympic Club in San Francisco after three days of action.

It's been a tough go for just about everyone who has seen the course, including the players who have the best shot to win it all at the end. Furyk and McDowell happen to be the only players with scores under par at this point, and those scores are exactly 1-under par.

McDowell made the important point after his round was over that even guys with high scores who seem out of it, are in fact in contention because of the spontaneous nature of the way the course has played this weekend.

Tiger Woods, after coming into Saturday tied for the lead with Furyk and David Toms, is now +4 after an abysmal day reading the greens.

U.S. Open Leaderboard Update: Jim Furyk Is Still Leading On Day 3

Jim Furyk seems to be the only player at the U.S. Open able to distinguish himself from what the Olympic Club at San Francisco has done to this field. Furyk is the leader by one shot and has the only score under par for the tournament.

Trailing him is 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who is now chasing his second U.S. Open title in three years. Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood and Ernie Els are among players who are +2 on the tournament, hoping Sunday is a much better day at Olympic.

Woods is currently putting at the 16th hole where he seems to be in position for par. There's 12 guys within four shots of the lead.

2012 US Open Leaderboard Update: Woods, Furyk And Toms Maintain Advantage

As the final groups of the day continue to prepare to take on The Olympic Club, the course is once again proving how difficult it can be. Extreme temperatures in the Bay Area are setting the players up for an incredibly difficult weekend, which will make the final two rounds even more intriguing.

The current low score of the third round belongs to Casey Wittenberg, who finished with a 67. He is one of four golfers who have shot in the 60's on Saturday. Lee Westwood and Retief Goosen have made some noise as well, with both guys shooting -2 in their first nine holes on the course. This hot start has propelled both golfers into a tie for 9th and just four strokes behind the leaders.

Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and David Toms lead the way at -1 through two rounds. They are all set to tee-off in the next 45 minutes.

2012 U.S. Open Scores: Steve Stricker In Line For Lowest Score Of Day

At four over par, University of Illinois graduate Steve Stricker isn't still a few shots off the lead at the 2012 U.S. Open, but he's only even that close thanks to a stellar second round on Friday. Stricker shot a 68 today, which, at the moment, is good for the lowest round of the day. A few golfers, notably K.J. Choi, could still tie or better him, but he's currently the day's leader in the clubhouse.

The Olympic Club has played tough so far this week, and true to form, Stricker's round featured only three shots under par. One of those, though, was an eagle on the par five 17th hole. The other two shots under par were a birdie on the first hole and a birdie on 18. He also shot two bogeys during the round.

2012 US Open: Luke Donald Misses Cut, Finishes Tournament +11

The world's No. 1 player will not make the cut at the 2012 U.S. Open. Northwestern alum Luke Donald shot a two-over 72 on Friday during the second round of the tournament, but the golfer's nine-over 79 in the opening round on Thursday doomed his chances from the start. With the cut line still projected to be around five-over, Donald is set to miss the cut at +11.

Donald was able to come up with birdies on the fourth, ninth, and 14th holes on Friday, but the hole he put himself in on Thursday was simply too much to overcome.

American Michael Thompson remains the tournament's leader through two holes today. He is at -4.

2012 US Open Golf: Luke Donald Is +1 Through 10 Holes On Friday, +10 Overall

Luke Donald is going to have to make a serious charge on the back 9 at The Olympic Club if he's to make the cut at the 2012 U.S. Open. Donald, the world's No. 1 player and a Northwestern alum, is +1 through 10 holes today. That would be just fine if he didn't shoot a 79 in the first round.

Donald was expected to compete for the Open championship, but four front-nine bogeys and five back-nine bogeys quickly sabotaged the chances of the former Wildcat on the tournament's first day.

Donald is currently tied for 139th place. The projected cut-line is at +5. Only four players are under par, led by American Michael Thompson at -4.

US Open Odds 2012: Luke Donald Closes In On Tiger Woods

Three-time U.S. Open winner Tiger Woods entered the week as the overwhelming favorite to win title No. 4, but as the tournament gets closer, oddsmakers are giving his competitors a better shot at taking him down. Chief among them is Northwestern University graduate Luke Donald, who, along with Lee Westwood, has overtaken defending champion Rory McIlroy as the oddsmakers' second most likely golfer to win the tournament.

Illinois native Steve Stricker is also in good position according to oddsmakers, as he's tabbed as a 40/1 favorite to win, which puts him inside the 20 most likely golfers. He's joined in that slot by Hunter Mahan and Sergio Garcia.

Here are the top 10 favorites, per Bovada:

  • Tiger Woods, 13/2
  • Lee Westwood, 11/1
  • Luke Donald, 11/1
  • Rory McIlroy, 14/1
  • Phil Mickelson, 20/1
  • Dustin Johnson, 25/1
  • Jason Dufner, 25/1
  • Justin Rose, 28/1
  • Matt Kuchar, 28/1
  • Adam Scott 33/1
