Glance at the US Open
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) — A glance at Thursday’s first round of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay:
Leading: Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson, who both shot 5-under 65.
Just behind: Patrick Reed is a shot back at 66, while Matt Kuchar, Ben Martin and amateur Brian Campbell were another shot back at 67.
Where’s Tiger? Tiger Woods shot an 80 and is in 154th place out of 156 players.
And Phil? Phil Mickelson, who has been runner-up in six Opens, shot a 69. Mickelson needs to win the Open to complete his personal Grand Slam.
Noteworthy: The 80 shot by Woods was the worst first round of his career on the PGA Tour — and by three shots.
Grand Slam update: Masters champion Jordan Spieth, the only player with a chance of winning all four majors, was three shots back after a 68.
Quoteworthy: “They are not the best that I have ever putted on.” — Rory McIlroy on the fescue greens at Chambers Bay.
