Woods blames putting for US Open misery

Justin Rose had 12-1 odds, while Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler were each given a 14-1 chance of topping the leaderboard.

"I did not enjoy it at all in 2004 and through most of the US Opens it feels like you are pulling teeth", Poulter said.

Where's Tiger: Tiger Woods shot a 78 that included two double bogeys and a triple bogey.

He would finish at ten over following a round of 80.

Mickelson shot a 77.

I think Woods might find a low round on Friday and I'm also hopeful McIlroy may do the same too.

Piercy said he was inspired by his Instagram account and some pizza after walking off in frustrating after just four holes of his final practice round.

"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.

Asked if the alliance with the CSU could shatter, he told Deutschlandfunk radio: "That can't be fully ruled out". And we will push ahead with it", Seehofer told a news conference in Berlin .

Woods opened with a triple bogey and found himself at 8-over after Day 1.

He added: "I needed some time away so we went back to the house, ordered some pizza and I actually went back on my Instagram, looked at some swings that I posted, positions that I was in, saw some drills I was doing". For most of the day, I just didn't putt well.

His worst two shots of the day came on the next hole, where he played from side to side and had a tough up and down to try and save a bogey - which he didn't.

"It's been a long time, and this is not really the week I wanted to revisit that score".

Tiger Woods did what McIlroy didn't, because when he got off to the bad start he took his foot of the pedal to get some pars on the card. "This golf course is kind of setting up for that right now".

Even being 4-over after two holes, Spieth figured even par would be a reasonable start on a day like this, a course like this.

"I didn't putt well today", said Woods. Woods and Mickelson are among 19 players who played in the last U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Thus far there has been at least one double-bogey on every hole and not one player had a completely clean scorecard today. His playing partner, Sebastian Munoz, managed a respectable double after following Stallings off the green from mid-range with putter in hand. Then he replaced the ball and made the putt for par.
