Brooks Koepka’s Hat Is Going Viral At The US Open Today

The USGA lost control of the course on day three last year when Phil Mickelson was penalised for hitting a moving ball

Piercy started fast with an eagle at the par-5 sixth to move to 5 under before double bogeying the eighth hole.

Xander Schauffele caught a break when his tee shot on the 18th caromed off the rock edge of the left fairway, setting up a 12-foot eagle. Woods finished with 11 straight pars for a 1-under 70 on Thursday, leaving him five shots behind leader Justin Rose. It boasts an impressive field, of course, led by two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka, now the world's No. 1 golfer, and Dustin Johnson, who's eager to reclaim that perch. That earned a big fist pump from Woods on a day when he was visibly frustrated with his iron play.

As is always the case, Tiger Woods will be one of the focal points of the entire weekend. I was in between clubs, " Woods said. "I tried to miss the ball in the correct spots, and a couple of times where I had wedges in my hand, I was just dumping, center of the green, move on, get my 30-, 40-footer and move on about my business and take my medicine when I was in a bad spot and just kind of grind it out". "You're not going to beat the scenery and everything about this golf course, and it's just the weather we're having at the moment, it makes this week really special". Instead, he played from the drop area in front of the stand, played a gorgeous pitch to 10ft, and holed the putt for an absurd par.

Sam Saunders has hit the first shot of the 119th U.S. Open. For this U.S. Open, in these relatively soft conditions, 39 players broke par. That put him at 5 under through six holes in the opening round of the US Open. What prevented this from being better was the one hole Woods couldn't save himself on.

No one was expecting a breeze the rest of the week. Jack Nicklaus won the first U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 1972 with a 2-over score, while Tom Watson finished at 6 under in 1982 and Tom Kite was 3 under a decade later. "They can do whatever they want with from here".

McIlroy won the 2011 US Open with a record total of 16 under par but was a total of 53 over for his seven subsequent starts and 36 over in the first round alone, the world number three admitting after a third straight missed cut in 2018 that his record was "pathetic".

Arsenal ‘face transfer battle’ to keep Lucas Torreira
Torreira impressed all with his first season in the Premier League , though admits he felt more comfortable at Sampdoria. Mostly us South Americans are used to having sunny days. "But as the years pass, I'm going to be adapting".

It could have been three in a row had the 30-year-old's birdie putt not stayed up after clipping the cup at the fourth, before McIlroy saved another par on the par-three fifth by rolling in from the fringes of the green with the flag still in after a duffed chip from the rough.

"It's typical Pebble Beach where the first seven holes you can get it going, and then after that you're kind of fighting and kind of hanging on", Woods said.

McIlroy was among the early starters and he made the most of benign conditions in California as he began his round from the 10th tee alongside Spain's Jon Rahm and Australian Marc Leishman. Even as he saw low scores on the board - he had a bogey-free 69, one of 27 rounds in the 60s - McDowell feared what was to come for those falling into a comfort zone.

"I don't think level par wins this week", he said.

With near ideal conditions on the Monterey peninsula, little wind and soft greens, the Pebble Beach Golf Links was left to the mercy of the world's best.
