Shinnecock Hills proved to be a bear during the first round of the 2018 U.S. Open.
With winds gusting all day, the world’s best players were frustrated and flummoxed, leading to some big numbers across the board.
When all the carnage had concluded only four players, Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Russell Henley and Scott Piercy were under par, all checking in at 1-under.
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods (8-over), Jordan Spieth (8-over) and Rory McIlroy (10-over) are about to pack their bags for what appears to be a short weekend in Long Island, N.Y.
Round 2 will start bright and early Friday morning as the best golfers on the planet will try to solve the USGA’s latest puzzle.
