U.S. Open, Round 1

Koepka displays the US Open trophy after his victory last year

Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy have a mathematical chance to reach No. 1 this week.

Felix Casas shot 92 during the second round of the 2002 US Open at Bethpage Black. He rebounded in the middle of his round, but back-to-back double bogeys on the back nine sent him near the back of the pack.

He would finish at ten over following a round of 80. I just think today was the toughest day we'll have all week.

"Is there a rule that allows me to see the ball when I hit it?" he asked.

Johnson holed medium-length putts for birdies, a few nervy, short putts for par and picked up a bonus when his shot from a front bunker on the par-4 eighth rattled and rolled into the cup. That dubious distinction belongs to J.D. Tucker, who shot a 157 in the first round of the 1898 U.S. Open.

Woods' triple-bogey 7 on the first set the tone. "Obviously he got off to a rough start, but I felt like he hung in there pretty good".

Fox would end the opening day with two more bogeys, on the seventh and ninth, coming away with a score of +3 for the round. I'm here to enjoy my golf, play freely and just go and play.

Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he will remain with Atletico Madrid
He then Tweeted 'My fans, my team, MY HOME!' to his Atletico fans. He added: "I feel there are things to do with Atletico. This is going to make a difference".

It was only the sixth time in his career that Woods posted three double-bogeys or worse in the same round. He was even par through 11 holes on Sunday before posting two bogeys, a double and a quadruple in the next four holes.

About 30 people - TV crews, volunteers, and even Tiger Woods - spent several minutes helping Johnson look for the ball. "I was anxious about running the putt by because it's downhill on the other side".

"Shoot something in the 60s tomorrow, and I'll be just fine". "If you hit a great shot, you're going to be rewarded".

The 42-year-old, whose major title drought now stretches back to his 2008 US Open victory at Torrey Pines, will face an uphill battle just to make the cut.

English professional golfer and former amateur star Scott Gregory has earned an unwanted record after a horror first round at the US Open.

"Tested", McIlroy said, "but punished if you hit a bad shot".

After the second straight 6, Woods walked slowly off the green, seemingly beaten by Shinnecock's harsh greens and his failing putter.
