US Open first round: Tiger Woods takes an early lead

The 124th US Open will be held at No. 2 Pinehurst in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

From the jump, the field will be haunted by world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who is on a warmer not seen since Tiger Woods’ heyday. Schaeffler hits the afternoon wave (1:24 p.m. ET to be exact) with Rory McIlroy and Xander Scheufele. By then, they will have a good idea of ​​how hard it is to play on the field.

We expect to play strong.

He lives10 updates

  • Tiger Woods’ iron shots were skewing right all morning, but he was perfect off the tee at 15. He approached another bird, but settled on an equal footing. His shot in the 16th minute was unsuccessful, as he missed the fairway for the first time this morning.

  • Remember Ludwig Aberg

    Probably not, this US Open is the third major tournament of his career, but you may remember that the 24-year-old Swede finished second, behind Scottie Scheffler, at the Masters in April.

    Well, after failing to qualify for the PGA Championship last month, he got off to an early start with a 2-under round to put himself at the top of the leaderboard.

    Yes, it’s very early in his career, but he has the potential to win a major title.

  • The tiger is making moves

    Tiger Woods almost had a disaster on the 14th, as the ball on his second shot nearly rolled down the hill off the green, but he was able to turn it into a great shot. He missed his putt from about six to eight feet, but saved par and kept his cool, looking calm but serious as he retrieved the ball from the hole.

    Tiger’s playing partners also reached 14. Matthew Fitzpatrick birdied the hole, while Will Zalatoris made a birdie.

  • Tiger has the bat working early

    After splashing his approach to the bunker on 12, Tiger Woods was able to get up and down from about 10 feet to save par.

    Then on 13, after a perfect drive, he birdied close to the green, then chipped back in to give himself an 8-foot putt for par and… drained it again.

  • About those vegetables

    When we say “turtle” green, this is what we’re referring to… a shot that looks solid toward the green, only to be on the wrong side of the swamp… and heading down.

  • It’s early but…

    With 41 players in the field, we have eight players under par (including Tiger Woods, who bogeyed his second player), another 16 at par and 18 over par, including Phil Mickelson, who bogeyed the first.

  • Tiger birds

    The two most important things players will have to manage this week are keeping it on the fairways (and away from the “rough” sand areas) and managing those tricky greens. After a beautiful drive, Tiger Woods cut back his second on the par-5 10th on “The Rough.” His first test came early and he recovered beautifully.

    He curled a 12-footer for birdie. 1-under. Strong start for Big Cat.

  • From the course

    PINHURST, N.C. – Conditions here couldn’t be better. As Tiger Woods and other early tee times began their first round, birds chirped high in the pines and the sun began to burn through the morning mist.

    The big early question is how players will handle the famous greens at Pinehurst. The slopes are wicked enough, and if the greens dry out over the course of the day, the first round can be long and frustrating for much of the field.

    The big dogs — Schaeffler, Schauffele, McIlroy — don’t get going until 1:14, and by then we should have a pretty good idea of ​​how the field will run.

  • Isn’t it ironic?

    Two sub-par players…both amateurs. Go and conclude.

    And here comes Tiger Woods..

  • And they left…

    The 124th US Open is officially underway. We are already seeing the test that will be Pinehurst No. 2 and Tortoise Green. We had a bogey and a double bogey on the first hole in the first triple. Fasten seat belts.
