A glance at 1st round of US Open

Tiger Woods made his return to Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, Long Island today for the 118th U.S. Open and kicked things off with a triple bogey seven on the par 4 first hole.

On No. 1 on Friday - his 10th hole of the day, after playing even-par on the back nine - Woods ran into trouble after hitting his second shot in the deep rough.

"I like where par is a good score on every hole no matter what club you got in your hand and what hole it is, " he said.

Fresh off a six-shot victory last week, Johnson managed all aspects of his game Thursday on a classic U.S. Open course that required nothing less.

Only five players were under par as of Thursday afternoon, as strong winds created hard conditions at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, New York, which is near the south shore of Long Island.

Shinnecock can punish anyone in a NY minute.

"If I had parred the last three holes yesterday the difference between 78 and 80 would have felt huge". Instead, in his frustration he bogeyed his last hole for a 73. I hit two bad putts on one and two, and for most of the day I just didn't putt well. There are eight golfers within five shots of first, and on this course, the leaderboard can change quickly.

He picked up two of his birdies on the par 3s, an 8-iron to 8 feet on the scary 11th, and the long putt on No 7.

"Dustin plays a whole different golf game than I play, so I'm not going to play the guy", Hoffman said. "Unfortunately, I went the other way".

"Have you seen the way I've been swinging?" You also have someone, Scott Gregory, who shot 92.

A starry cast list who will have an unwanted weekend off was headed by Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.

He dropped only two shots, both on par 3s, and was the first to post a 69.

Before this week he had missed the cut only once in nine events in 2018. Birdies on his two closing holes briefly kept his hopes of playing into the weekend alive, but by late afternoon if was clear Woods and his 155-foot yacht were free to sail home. That said, he'd performed respectably in a number of tournament this year. A lone bogey at the par-4 first was the only blemish on his scorecard.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka made six birdies over his last 11 holes for a 66, matching Tommy Fleetwood for the low round of the tournament. Three weeks after the Texas Open, he finished in a tie for second place at the 2017 Players Championship, and that July he placed third in the RBC Canadian Open. "There's not many birdies". I mean, all it takes is one shot in the fescue, and you could be in there for a while. "Just need to continue what we're doing".

"Happy it's over", Justin Rose said after a 1-over triumph.

Stenson was asked if Johnson could be caught and said that the world's No 1 player was "always catchable". It would be his third at the U.S. Open, after missed cuts in 2006 and 2015. "So hang around is often the best form of attack".

That goes for Johnson, too.

The 23-year-old's score included two triple-bogeys, three double-bogeys, 10 bogeys and three pars as he fell 23 shots back of the lead after the first round. All told, the top 10 players in the world combined to shoot 52 over par.

Coming off the eighth tee box, tucked away in a corner of Shinnecock Hills where few fans camped Friday evening, a pack of devoted British fans clutching bottles of American beers cheered Ian Poulter with a politely frantic excitement. "All in all I ended up making a 6, and thought I just got to make it up somewhere else on the course".

The current projected cut line is +9, but it's not getting easier out there. Johnson knows that as well as anyone.

But this is far from over.
