Woods 'fighting and hanging on' at US Open

The US Open takes place at Pebble Beach this weekend

Justin Rose has the lead after birdieing his final three holes to shoot a six-under-par 65, which ties the lowest round ever shot in a U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

"I'm assuming the golf course is going to continue to firm up over the week and it's going to get tougher to control the golf ball, and you have to be a little bit more dialed in", Fowler said. "This is just a very small step toward outcome".

Englishman Hatton, who recorded his best finish at a US Open when he finished joint sixth past year, climbed to four under par without dropping a shot in his first 15 holes, but finished with three successive bogeys. I know from playing the practice rounds that I probably should hit 7 because I can hit it 15 yards short of the green, and there's a little shelf there that will funnel the ball onto the front part of the green.

Grace was unable to save par, one of three bogeys in his first six holes.

"You know this golf course you're going to struggle on when you miss it", said Koepka, bidding to become the first golfer in more than a century to win three consecutive U.S. Opens.

Despite the battle Woods had to go through to get to the one-under, he has to be happy with the result.

Woods is a three-time victor at the U.S. Open.

After a birdie at the fourth was followed by a double-bogey from dense rough at the par-three fifth, Woods birdied the sixth and seventh only to find himself scrambling the rest of the way.

Tiger Woods, the 2019 Masters victor and 15-time major champion, wrestled and muscled and grinded his way around the course as can only he, even at 43.

Nadal wins record 12th French Open title over Thiem
Fifteen-time golf Major victor and former world No. 1 Tiger Woods tweeted: "The King of Clay does not like to share his wealth". And the Austrian levelled the match when Nadal blinked all but again, hitting a backhand prolonged after a 10-shot rally.

All four of McIlroy's previous major titles came after a first round in the 60s and the 30-year-old will hope that sequence continues in California after an opening 68 which left him two shots off the clubhouse lead held by Rickie Fowler, Xander Schauffle and Louis Oosthuizen. If I'm patient, I'll get better as the week goes on.

Tiger Woods is in the U.S. Open despite a scratchy one-under 70 in the opening round on Thursday.

"I did what I had to do", McIlroy said.

Brooks Koepka made par after teeing off onto the cart path on No. 18 to close out a 69. "Pins are going to get tricky, greens are going to get firm, and it's going to be hard".

"Two flawless shots, Michael", he said tersely.

Let's dive into Woods' first 18 holes and take a look at what's ahead for Big Cat.

"And I hit a awful shot, but the second shot was good".

If's he going to make up ground, he certainly needs to do better on the greens, which were not, in any way, playing the way they were a year ago on Saturday at Shinnecock. Until that point, you can't really get to that point.

"I did have to take 24 hours to think about it before (saying yes to Day) but I've always enjoyed Jason's company and have been impressed with his play", Williams said. Think of what goes on in your head during a useless round with your useless pals.
