A four-putt double-bogey. Not great.

At the par-4 18th hole, the long-driving golfer smashed the ball 411 yards down the fairway, leaving him 103 yards to the flag.

Woods then went on to bogey the second hole before calming things down with pars on the next two holes and then an opening birdie of the day at the fifth.

The game would end 5-0 to Russian Federation , thus continuing the tradition of hosts not losing their opening World Cup game. First-half substitute Denis Cheryshev scored his first worldwide goals in the 43rd and 90+1 minutes in World Cup opener.

After the leaderboards at Erin Hills were coated with red numbers a year ago, the U.S. Open returned to its bludgeoning roots Thursday thanks to an assist from Mother Nature, leaving destruction in its wake and almost no player unscathed.

Woods was walking from the 14th hole tee and gave Burmester a wave of approval during his eagle celebrations.

"It was pretty evident nobody was making any birdies in the morning - lots and lots of bogeys and 'others, "' Woods said.

As you may know, this is the second celebrity suicide in the last week, as Kate Spade also committed suicide by hanging. Bourdain's award-winning series, " Parts Unknown ", brought the world home to CNN viewers. "We thought it was odd ".

Phil Mickelson, needing the US Open to complete the grand slam, played in the feature grouping with Spieth and McIlroy. Here he is holing out of the bunker at eight for birdie.

The first round of the U.S. Open is being televised on FOX. His playing partner, Sebastian Munoz, managed a respectable double after following Stallings off the green from mid-range with putter in hand. "My game plan was not to make any 'others, ' and I made three of them".

Tiger Woods reads the 12th green during the first round of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on May 3, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. "This golf course is kind of setting up for that right now". It was his highest opening round in his 27 US Opens. "The wind was strong, the ball is getting blown around so much and with the locations of the pins you can't get it close and on top of that it's hard to putt". He chipped once and it came back to his feet. "I think today was the toughest day we will have all week". He held it together until a four-putt on No 13, the last three of those putts from six feet. "Just never really took advantage of the opportunities", Woods said after his round. But then again, I think they're going to let these greens firm out a little bit. Woods and Mickelson are among 19 players who played in the last U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.
