Rose flowers at Pebble Beach

The US Open takes place at Pebble Beach this weekend

Tiger Woods battled his way to a one-under 70 in the first round of the U.S. Open.

Woods's start hardly resembled the one he had in 2000 when he romped to a record 15-shot victory as he mixed three birdies with a double-bogey through eight holes to leave the 15-times major victor on one-under. "Hitting the ball in the correct spots, if I happened to not feel comfortable with a number, dump the ball 30, 40 feet, move on about my business". The first came at the par-5 third, where he appeared to double-cross himself, pulled the tee shot left, found a cart path, and almost went out of bounds.

"A awful tee shot".

"I was thinking, 'This would be kind of cool doing it front of the great man himself, '" Rose said.

Caught between clubs at the par-3 fifth, hit a 6-iron way left.

"I don't know if I did a good job of anything other than scrambling today so it's good to know you can shoot a score like that and have something left in the tank".

"I was fortunate with the uphill lie in the bunker, I could get some height on the ball and just try to get it within four or five feet right of the hole. and it came out ideal", he said.

He chipped back over the green from there and couldn't get up and down, carding a double-bogey 5.

Some were after poor iron shots. Koepka hit only 7 of 14 fairways and 12 of 18 greens in regulation. At the 13th, he hit a wayward drive but recovered from in front of the green.

Back nine (even-par 36): It's a little bit unfair to simply say that Woods shot an even 36 on the back nine with nine pars without a little bit of context. He is 13th in that category on the PGA Tour.

It was an 18-hole grind, one Woods was able to manage admirably while carding a 1-under 70 in the opening round at Pebble Beach.

"Careful what you wish for, because I think we're going to see it come the weekend", McDowell said. It seemed like the majority of the guys were under par through the first seven holes, and then nobody was making hay after that.

Koepka can also become the first player since Willie Anderson to win three consecutive U.S. Opens.

Fowler, who's seeking his first major championship in his 39th try, was an early leader in the clubhouse from the early wave of tee times before Rose began his round. Woods is in a tie for 28th.

McIlroy was among the early starters and he made the most of benign conditions in California as he began his round from the 10th tee alongside Spain's Jon Rahm and Australian Marc Leishman.

"We are endeavoring to set up and play a U.S. Open as the U.S. Open has always been at Pebble Beach and just let history unfold, as it always has, and it will take care of itself", Bodenhamer said.
