UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. -- The 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Golf Course is now in full swing with day one in the books at the difficult links course.
Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson sit tied for first after shooting five-under 65 after the first round, Patrick Reed is just a stroke behind the leaders. Washington native Alex Putnam held par with a 70 to remain even and tied for 34th. Other notables include Phil Mickelson at a one-under 69, Bubba Watson who also shot a 70 and Rory McIlroy who faltered with bogey's on 16 and 18 to finish day one with a two-over 72.
Most eye-catching was the performance of Tiger Woods, who shot a 10-over 80 in his opening round, including a laughable moment when he lost his club during a swing on the eighth hole. (See that moment below).
