PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) Gary Woodland hit a shank and a chunk and both times made par, and he made a birdie from a deep divot in the fairway. Such moments, even on a Saturday, can go a long way toward winning a U.S. Open.

Even better for Woodland was a 2-under 69 - and just two bogeys over 54 holes at Pebble Beach - for a one-shot lead over Justin Rose.

"I worked for this my whole life," Woodland said. "I know what it takes to win. And my game is in a great spot. I'm at a beautiful golf course. I came here to win, and that's what we're going out to do tomorrow."
