4 monthes ago   |   By TheScore

There may be a four-way tie atop the leaderboard after 18 holes at the U.S. Open, but Shinnecock Hills emerged from Round 1 as the real winner, with the historic course hammering the best golfers in the world. Heavy winds and firm conditions saw scores balloon throughout the day, with the field posting an average of 76.48, and only four players breaking par. That scoring average represents the highest in the opening round of a U.S. Open since 1986 when the event was also held at Shinnecock Hills. After last year saw the field attack a vulnerable Erin Hills layout, one had to expect the...

SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports' Steve DiMeglio dissects the historic course which last hosted the U.S. Open in 2004. SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Carnage didn't run into traffic problems Thursday en route to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club and the 118th U.S. Open. While bumper-to-bumper congestion on nearby thoroughfares irritated all within their vehicles, Shinnecock's sunlit green boulevards caused plenty of irritation in the first round of the national championship. Winds whipping off the Long Island Sound were stubborn and forceful from the first tee time to the last and turned the historic track...

Johnson in 4-way tie for U.S. Open lead after challenging Round 1

4 monthes ago   |   By TheScore

After the best golfers in the world bludgeoned Erin Hills at last year's U.S. Open, it was expected the USGA would make Shinnecock Hills a massive challenge at this year's event. Consider that job done, because the presence of a stiff breeze helped an already challenging course produce absolute carnage Thursday, with only four players breaking par in Round 1 of the 2018 U.S. Open. Given the trying conditions, it's probably fitting that Dustin Johnson, a man seemingly unperturbed by even the biggest distraction on a golf course, stands alongside Ian Poulter, Russell Henley, and Scott Piercy...
