Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell begin the fourth and last round of the 2012 U.S. tied for the lead while Tiger Woods just doesn’t care. Woods started his round bogey-bogey-double bogey and looks like his is having almost as much fun as he did on that Thanksgiving night a few years back.

Meanwhile 17-year old high school junior (and future Longhorn) Beau Hossler started the day actually believing that he could win.

The fog is making its long awaited appearance at the Olympic Club in San Francisco and the next four hours are promising to be one helluva recruiting video for UT. Hossler started his round with a dramatic par on #1, giving the Hook ‘Em as the ball fell in the hole.

Jordan Spieth (remember him?) is the other low amateur playing in the final round, and he is wearing his burnt orange UT cap. Hossler, who won’t be on campus for another year, has his Texas visor and Longhorn shirt on and no doubt will be getting lots of air time.

Should be fun to watch.
