Dustin Johnson in prime spot to make own US Open history

Brooks Koepka says he is now '100 per cent' past his injury

Matt Jones is in a tie for 69th spot after he carded a 76-shot 6-over with Adam Scott and Jason Scrivener a further two shots back in 103rd.

Woods, making his first start in the US Open since 2015, appeared to get off to a solid start when sending a long iron down the middle of the fairway - but then things went horribly wrong from there.

He would finish at ten over following a round of 80. They were a combined 25-over par, with Mickelson the low man in the group at 77. "I think today was the toughest day we will have all week".

"It's frustrating because I'm hitting the ball well, " he said.

Perched just left of the 10th green, Rank surmised that his 30-yard pitch would respond differently than any he had encountered during his preparation. He missed a par putt from 6 feet, then missed a 4-footer coming back and made double-bogey.

Dustin Johnson entered the 2018 U.S. Open tournament with the strongest odds of taking home almost $2.2 million in winnings. He made the putt for triple bogey, leaving him at 4-over through two holes. I hit two bad putts on one and two, and for most of the day I just didn't putt well. "I'm just trying to enjoy the experience". Baddeley started out early and quickly grabbed the lead with a couple of early birdies, and he played solidly throughout until he took a triple bogey seven at the par-four sixth hole, his 15th of the day. "I drove it pretty darn good for most of the day, just never took advantage of the opportunities".

Meanwhile, former world number one Tiger Woods has endured a terrible opening display, sitting tied for 102nd after a first round score of 78 sees him at +8. "I was anxious about running the putt by because it's downhill on the other side". He was the last player to win a US Open while recording a triple bogey and that was back in 2000.

Every golfer made it to the course in time on Day 1 despite traffic that had players anxious someone would miss his tee time. Spieth said some of the pins were "dicey" but Dustin Johnson said it was fair. That put him at 8 over par for the round on the par-70 Shinnecock Hills course.

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

Tiger Woods. Four putt.

Scott Gregory, a 23-year-old from England playing in his first major as a pro, shot a first-round 92 on Thursday.
