2012 U.S. Open Golf Results: On Strange Leaderboard, Scott Langley Finishes Strong

The 2012 U.S. Open leaderboard looks only a little like we thought it would going into last Thursday's opening round—Tiger Woods fell off after a strong start, and Jim Furyk, atop the leaderboard as the last round began, couldn't quite stave off winner Webb Simpson's strong finish. And after a first round that made him a longshot to make the cut, St. Louis native Scott Langley finished on the leaderboard, tied for 29th at three over. Strong second and third rounds helped him to his best finish of the PGA season—and a $53,168 prize, which can't hurt, either.

Langley made his name as an amateur at the 2010 U.S. Open, when he finished tied for 16th (and low amateur status) thanks to a Round 2 69. Langley, 23, was born in Manchester, Missouri and played golf as a collegian at the University of Illinois.
