Round 1 of U.S. Open resumes June 14
Round 1 of the U.S. Open resumed June 14 with Phil Mickelson 3 under at the Merion Golf Club. Luke Donald was the leader on the first day of the tournament on June 13, but struggled on the course's final stretch, making way for Mickelson to swoop in for the lead.
Tiger Woods finished 3-over-par on June 14, despite obvious pain in his elbow. Woods showed distress in the area during the first night of round 1, but managed to finish six strokes behind leader Mickelson.
"My left arm didn't feel very good on that shot. A few shots," Woods told ESPN. "But overall it was not too bad a round. I certainly had two three-putts and I had a boatload of putts and the round could have easily been under par. So that's good heading into this afternoon."
Weather conditions at the course caused two delays, and prevented half of the players from completing 18 holes on June 13. Players noticed a change in wind direction and drop in temperature starting off the day on Friday, causing the holes to play long.
