SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jim Furyk has made the turn alone at the top of the U.S. Open and the only player at par.

That might be all it takes to win.

Furyk was 1 over through nine holes in the final round Sunday, holding onto a one-shot lead over Webb Simpson while an eerie fog swallowed The Olympic Club. Simpson was 2 under through 11 holes.

Michael Thompson shot a 3-under 67 to take the clubhouse lead at 2 over. The 27-year-old was the runner-up at the U.S. Amateur at Olympic Club in 2007.

Graeme McDowell, even with Furyk at the 54-hole mark, was 3 over on his round. He was tied with Thompson and John Peterson, who was 1 under through 13 holes.
