2011 U.S. Open - CongressionalThe featured group for today’s first round of the U.S. Open at Congressional is Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy.  The group started on the back nine about 20 minutes ago.

Phil Mickelson’s tee shot on the par-3 10th found the water hazard short, and he ended up carding a double bogey. Tough to start a U.S. Open with a double.

Dustin Johnson on the 11th hole (the featured group’s 2nd) found a creek to the right of the long par-4 off the tee.  His 3rd shot found the water hazard right of the green.  His putt for double slid right and he ends up making a triple.

Rory McIlroy is playing with these two, trying not get that bit of a bad vibe.  He’s even par after two holes.

UPDATE

Mickelson made birdie on #12, bringing it back to +1.  McIlroy made birdie on #12 to get to -1.  Johnson had a birdie chance but make par on #12 to stay at +3.
