PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark has taken the early lead at the U.S. Open, starting his round with three birdies over the first six holes at Pebble Beach to go to 3-under par.

Toru Taniguchi and Edoardo Molinari are a shot behind, as the first waves of players are heading toward the turn Thursday.

Phil Mickelson made a nice par save on No. 11 and was at even-par through his first four holes, while Padraig Harrington hit his approach to 4 feet on 11 and made the putt to go 1 under.

Morning clouds were clearing and the winds were picking up, which could dry out the course in the afternoon. Tiger Woods was in a group with Ernie Els and Lee Westwood. They tee off at 4:36 p.m. EDT.
