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.
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.
