U.S. Open 2018: Leaderboard updates, streaming

After missing from seven feet for birdie on the 10th, his opening hole, McIlroy dropped shots on the next two holes and then ran up back-to-back double bogeys on the 13th and 14th. That trio consists of what could be the three best current golfers without a major championship.

Woods then bogeyed the par-3 second.

His worst start to a major, his highest score at a US Open: the stats lined up like a charge-sheet.

Woods was walking from the 14th hole tee and gave Burmester a wave of approval during his eagle celebrations. "It takes every mistake you make and makes it all worse, " said Charles Howell, who shot 71.

McIlroy, Spieth and Mickelson - which was considered as the star grouping of the morning wave - carded a combined 25-over par. He added back-to-back double bogeys on the back nine and staggered to a 78. His pitch got onto the green, but not almost far enough to stay there, and rolled back down the hill a few steps to the left of where Woods had been.

Johnson holed medium-length putts for birdies, a few nervy, short putts for par and picked up a bonus when his shot from a front bunker on the par-4 eighth rattled and rolled into the cup. That's a sharp contrast from a year ago at Erin Hills, where 44 players broke par in the opening round to set a U.S. Open record. "I felt like I hit three half-decent shots just to, like, ease in with a bogey, and now I'm grinding to make a double".

A new video game will offer its players the chance to race cars through the Scottish Highlands and on the streets of Edinburgh. The teaser also shows a Warthog, the beloved offroad vehicle from previous " Halo " games, as well as a quartet of people.

From the middle of the first fairway, Woods went long over the green. "This golf course is kind of setting up for that right now". "They'll start to pick up a little bit of speed, and it will be a good U.S. Open again". "For most of the day, I just didn't putt well".

"When's the last time you heard of two guys that play golf for a living putt it off the green, uphill from 30 feet?"

"Just shoot something in the 60s tomorrow and I will be fine", he said.

The U.S. Open has gone to new courses two of the last three years, and Jack Nicklaus is among those who feared it had lost its identity.

It was a brutal, windy day on Long Island and ultimately, Shinnecock Hills was the victor.
