4 monthes ago   |   By New York Post

With a strong wind and firm conditions, Shinnecock Hills presented a massive test for the best players in the world at the U.S. Open on Thursday.

DJ listed as heavy favorite after opening-round 69

4 monthes ago   |   By TheScore

Dustin Johnson entered Thursday as the favorite to win the U.S. Open, and the 2016 Champion continues to hold that distinction after an opening-round 69 left him in a four-way tie for the lead.

Despite their standing, the co-leaders don't follow Johnson on the betting board, as Justin Rose, who sits two strokes back at 1-over, is listed at 11-2, while Henrik Stenson is 12-1 at the same score. Poulter is...
