Phil Mickelson Misses 20-Inch Putt at U.S. Open

Phil Mickelson Misses 20-Inch Putt at U.S. Open

"Pebble Beach is such a wonderful place with what we try to accomplish in achieving a tough test".

Woods struggled all day with full shots but one-putted 11 greens to finish at 1 under and stay in the hunt.

Former world number one Woods carded a one-under-par 70 to end Thursday's opening round five shots off the pace.

He got a little more.

Tiger Woods didn't have his best stuff Thursday at the U.S. Open.

American Xander Schauffele had an eagle at the last to join compatriot Rickie Fowler and South Africa's Louis Oostuizen in the lead on five under.

Woods, who claimed his 15th major title at the Masters in April, said most of his misses were in the correct spot to limit damage, just as most of his 25 putts were uphill - key to success on the sometimes bumpy poa annua greens at Pebble Beach. It seemed like the majority of the guys were under par through the first seven holes, and then nobody was making hay after that.

"As a kid you always wanted to win a US Open at Pebble".

"I was thinking, 'This would be kind of cool doing it front of the great man himself, '" Rose said. "I think the golf course was set up really good for good scoring in the morning and will probably get a little bumpy in the afternoon and firm up a little bit".

Still, players don't expect the USGA to sit idly by as players have their way with the par-71 track.

"I said to Harry, 'Could you go and find Laurence?" "Pins are going to get tricky, greens are going to get firm, and it's going to be hard". Finau, who finished fifth a year ago at Shinnecock Hills when he double bogeyed the final hole, then went out and shot 3 over.

One of the most iconic golf courses in the world is set to host one of the sport's most hard challenges.

Other stars lurk behind Rose, including Rory McIlroy and British Open champion Francesco Molinari, both of whom shot 3-under 68s. In fact, he was over par in the first round of each of the previous seven U.S. Opens. "And put it back in the bag and make sure the bag gets on the plane and goes to California, '" said McIlroy.

Will the champ make a move?

8, 13 and 17. He was good off the tee, and he wasn't spraying shots all over the place from the fairway, but his distance control was bad at times and he only hit nine greens in regulation.

He finished 2-under 69, four shots behind Rose. He missed the green at the ninth, 10th and 11th holes, all after hitting the fairway.

"It's benign conditions, very soft for a US Open, so you needed to get out there and shoot something in the 60s". At the 13th, he hit a wayward drive but recovered from in front of the green. I'm actually quite pleased - 2 under, I didn't shoot myself out of it.

Phil Mickelson, who's trying to complete a career Grand Slam, had a round of missed opportunities, which included a lipped-out 1-foot par putt, and finished with a 1-over 72.

Cut: Top 60 players and ties after 36 holes.

Rose, the 2013 champion, birdied his final three holes to equal the U.S. Open lowest round at the course.
