US Open 2018: Outright and two-balls advice for Moving Day

SOUTHAMPTON NY- JUNE 14 Tiger Woods of the United States looks on from the first green during the first round of the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club

SOUTHAMPTON NY- JUNE 14 Tiger Woods of the United States looks on from the first green during the first round of the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club

"Our wave of tee times was significantly easier, and it shows how impressive Dustin Johnson is playing because he played in much more hard conditions and he's beating everybody by a lot", Mickelson said after his round, referring to the sunnier conditions over in the afternoon.

Phil Mickelson reacts to a shot from the fescue on the fifth hole during Saturday's third round of the U.S. Open. "If I try my best, and wherever I end up it's just going to be great now". He had four consecutive bogeys before parring the 12th, despite the serenading of "Happy Birthday" from the crowds at every hole.

But former world No.1 Day wasn't the only casualty on a disastrous first round for many of golf's big names, with play expected to worsen as the afternoon groups face even stronger winds.

The incident overshadowed the 66 from Daniel Berger which gave the chasing pack hope of catching leader Dustin Johnson at Shinnecock Hills.

"I played well", Lumsden said afterward. Only five strokes separate the next 33 players, including numerous major champions and frontline contenders.

Johnson was the only player under par - 4-under 136 - and led by four shots over Scott Piercy and Charley Hoffman. "I didn't putt well, didn't chip well", Mickelson said. This marked his first U.S. Open since 2015. Daly would make an 11 (after the two-shot penalty) on that par-4 eighth on his way to a final-round 13-over 83.

"I didn't putt well today", he said.

Ian Poulter was one shot out of the lead and in the middle of the fairway with two holes to go when one bad shot led to a few more that were even worse - a bunker shot over the green, a chunk into the hay, a chop short of the green and a triple bogey on No. 8.

The additional seats, constructed well outside the original stadium structure, will be taken down once the tournament ends. From 1970 until Friday, Uruguay had lost three games and drawn another three in its opening World Cup games.

Stenson shot 70 to remain in contention.

Much like two weeks ago at the Memorial Tournament, Woods hit plenty of good shots but was unable to get any putts to drop. He finished with bogeys on two of his last three holes as he was among the earlier finishers in the round.

Harold Varner, playing in his second major, finished the tournament at plus-14.

"I never want to make doubles, " Johnson said. So if I can putt like I did at the beginning of the year we've got something. Equally though, just one costly mistake from Dustin Johnson could set up a mouthwatering finale to this championship.

Johnson is coming off a six-shot victory at the St. Jude Classic, and no US Open champion has ever won the week before on the PGA Tour.

And that was just the first hole.

Dustin Johnson has history on his side going into the weekend at the U.S. Open.

Whether it was the pressure of trying to complete the career grand slam or the pressure of Shinnecock's fast and undulating greens, Phil Mickelson went and lost his mind.
