U.S. Open Tracker

UPDATE No. 8 (10:10 a.m. ET): We now have a four-way tie for the lead at 2 under.

Ian Poulter, Matt Kuchar, Charley Hoffman and Russell Knox are all co-leaders. Six players are under par total.

UPDATE No. 7 (9:40 a.m. ET): This is really starting to get dim for Spieth and Rory.

McIlroy is now 6 over through five, and Spieth is 5 over through five. Unreal. Charley Hoffman has taken over the solo lead by getting out to 2 under through four holes.

UPDATE No. 6 (9:20 a.m. ET): Phil Mickelson is 3 over through four … and the leader in his group.

That’s because Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are both 4 over. That would be a combined 11 over from that trio. Wow.

The lead is 1 under, held by several players including Justin Rose and Brooks Koepka.

UPDATE No. 5 (9:03 a.m. ET): Here’s a rundown where the big names stand so far. Wind is up today, so the scores are brutal so far.

  • Patrick Reed: 1 under through 4 (T-2)
  • Brooks Koepka: 1 under through 4 (T-2)
  • Rickie Fowler: Even through 3 (T-10)
  • Rory McIlroy: 2 over through 3 (T-38)
  • Phil Mickelson: 2 over through 3 (T-38)
  • Jason Day: 3 over through 4 (T-53)
  • Jordan Spieth: 4 over through 3 (T-60)

UPDATE No. 4 (8:55 a.m. ET): More examples of carnage…

Jason Day is already 3 over through four.

UPDATE No. 3 (8:45 a.m. ET): We’ve got some morning updates, and some are gruesome…

Aaron Baddeley leads at 2 under (through four) and Patrick Reed starts birdie-birdie-bogey on the back to tie the lead and then fall one back. Defending champion Brooks Koepka is also 1 under through three (on the front). Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy both are 1 over through two on the back.

The bad… Jordan Spieth starts bogey-triple and is already 4 over. Yikes! Matthew Southgate has 93 yards from the fairway for his second at his opening par-4 10th and makes TRIPLE BOGEY! Yeesh! Scott Stallings has yet to make a par and has a 9 on his card! Stallings starts bogey-bogey-birdie-bogey-quintuple bogey-bogey-birdie and is 7 over. Wow!

UPDATE No. 2 (7 a.m. ET): A reminder that these are the conditions that will face the players today at Shinnecock…

UPDATE No. 1 (6:45 a.m. ET): The U.S. Open is now underway!
