Tiger Woods struggles at U.S. Open

15 June, 2018, 11:42 | Author: Lora Ball

It was a tough round for Day and many other stars at the US Open.

He's also just six shots behind world number one Dustin Johnson, Scott Piercy, Russell Henley and Ian Poulter, who defied winds gusting to 25mph to card one-under 69s for a one-stroke lead over former US PGA victor Jason Dufner with the likes of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson lurking on one-over after grinding out 71s. "I was anxious about running the putt by because it's downhill on the other side". Johnson holed a bunker shot for birdie, kept his mistakes to a minimum and joined Ian Poulter, Scott Piercy and Russell Henley at one-under 69 for a share of the lead.

Jason Day came into the tournament as the most-fancied of his countrymen, but began with a 79, nine-over par, with eight bogeys, a double bogey and just the one birdie all day.

Burmester, who is playing in his first Major event, birdied the 16th but then gave it back with a bogey at 17th and then on the final stretch.

"It was pretty evident nobody was making any birdies in the morning - lots and lots of bogeys and 'others, "' Woods said.

With a wedge in hand, Burmester slam-dunked the ball into the hole to finish on 5-over-par 75 and in a tie for 46th after the opening round.

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

It was quite a contrast from previous year at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, which set a record for the first round by yielding 44 rounds under par. He rebounded in the middle of his round, but back-to-back double bogeys on the back nine sent him near the back of the pack. He held it together until a four-putt on No. 13, the last three of those putts from 6 feet.

"It's a different kind of enjoyment, right?" It was his highest opening round in his 27 US Opens.

"The wind was strong, the ball is getting blown around so much and with the locations of the pins you can't get it close and on top of that it's hard to putt", he said.

It was a brutal, windy day on Long Island and ultimately, Shinnecock Hills was the victor. "Just never really took advantage of the opportunities", Woods said after his round.
