"The only reason I knew my putt on the last was to match Tiger's score is that Rickie had that putt earlier and I was watching some of the (television) coverage", Rose said.

Thanks to some clutch putting and sound strategy, Woods managed to prevent any of those mistakes from turning into bogeys and finished under par in a round at the U.S. Open for the first time in seven years.

"I just need to go out and shoot something in the 60s tomorrow and I'll be in a good spot in the weekend".

"I was fortunate with the uphill lie in the bunker, I could get some height on the ball and just try to get it within four or five feet right of the hole. and it came out flawless", he said.

"I feel like my mindset is I am in a 72-hole tournament [and] this is just a very small step towards outcome". So you don't feel that buzz that you would on a Sunday, but you can't help but look around over your shoulder and. damn, this is Pebble Beach.

The USGA has come under heavy criticism leading into this U.S. Open because of the way the last few have played out, with Phil Mickelson saying officials have messed up the course "100% of the time" when it doesn't rain to Golf Digest quoting anonymous players as saying a boycott was considered in the past. "Whatever transpires the rest of the week, it was a cool moment". Fowler missed and had to settle for a 66.

But he did enough to keep himself in it by making par when he needed one. He blasted that out beyond the green and made double bogey.

McIlroy won the 2011 US Open with a record total of 16 under par but was a total of 53 over for his seven subsequent starts and 36 over in the first round alone, the world number three admitting after a third straight missed cut in 2018 that his record was "pathetic".

Britain backs USA over 'unacceptable' Iran attacks on oil tankers
One the tankers damaged on Thursday is Japanese-owned - according Hiroshige Seko, Japan's minister of economy, trade and industry. He suggested that those flying objects could have been bullets, and called reports of striking a mine " false ".

"It's a battle if you're not going to hit fairways". "I proved that today".

Tiger Woods and two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka turned in scrappy efforts to stay in contention. He gained nearly three strokes on the field with his putter, good for fourth best in the field at the time he signed his scorecard.

If U.S. Opens are occasions in which people gather to experience and witness misery, then a U.S. Open did not begin on Thursday, even though the 119th one did officially.

But only 17 players were under par in the first round of 2000. The previous record was 13, at Oakmont in 1983. That's second most in a U.S. Open in the past 10 years (there were 44 players under par after the first round at Erin Hills in 2017) and 30 more than the last time Pebble Beach hosted in 2010. "They can do whatever they want with from here".

Scott Piercy, who bogeyed the 18th for a 67, was the first player to get everyone's attention when he was at 5 under through six holes. And he will be starting on the 10th hole. The U.S. Open is supposed to be the most hard test among the sport's four majors, and the one that challenges a player's complete game the most. "I came back well and didn't make a bogey".

"Hypothetically if I give myself another 10 years that's 40 majors", Woods said.

"I don't think level par wins this week", he said. 10/14 fairways, 9/18 greens.

"It is not lost on us this is an important week, not only for golf, this is an important week for the USGA", executive director Mike Davis said at a news conference Wednesday, the day before this year's national championship starts at Pebble Beach.
