U.S. OPEN 2012 Olympic ClubWho is Michael Thompson? He’s your round one leader of the 2012 U.S. Open by three shots at -4. Thompson took only 22 putts in round one, which I can safely predict will not happen again. That was his lowest single round putting total since he joined the PGA Tour in 2008.  Tiger Woods played very solid as did several players who he is tied with for 2nd place at -1.  Thompson and Woods will be going out in the afternoon when scoring conditions may be a little more tough.  It will be interesting to see where the chips fall at the end of the day.

Many big names shot some big numbers in day one.  The group featuring the top three players in the world in Luke Donald (#1), Rory McIlory (#2) and Lee Westwood (#3) struggled.  Astoundingly Donald shot a +9 79 on a setup which should be perfect for his game.  McIlory logged a +7 77 while Westwood was more respectable at 73.

Speaking of big names, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson were playing along side Tiger Woods.  Both lefties struggled.  Mickelson isn’t out of the running, but his 76 will need to be followed by a considerably lower number.  Watson seems to be suffering from Masters hangover, firing an eight over 78.  Following the round Watson was quoted as saying, “It’s (Olympic Club) a lot better than I am.  That golf course is too tough for me.”

Hot Shots

Two amazing shots were recorded in round one.  First Michael Allen holed out from the right fringe of the fairway on the par-4 14th for an eagle.  The most amazing shot of the day goes to Nick Watney.  He holed out a 5-iron on the par-5 17th for his 2nd shot and an albatross.
