Here is the best summary of viewing that I've found (fwiw Thur/Friday are virtually identical so I'm not posting Friday - just the feature groups are swapped - times shown are EDT835600325_ThursdayUSOpenbroadcast.thumb.JPG.104e83e88ee12627147c8f4dc2161d61.JPG)

Rory looked amazing on the range yesterday.  They were using the shot tracer on TGC, and first they showed Tiger hitting his fairway wood and driver.  They left the traces up so you could see the paths of several shots at once.  Tiger's shots were within a few yards of each other, and I thought that was pretty impressive.  Then they showed Rory, and he hit three or four shots where the traces looked like one shot. 

It reminded me of the Robin Hood movies where he shoots a bullseye with his first shot, and then splits the first arrow with his second shot.

Live at the U.S. Open reports that the first birdie of the tournament has happened.  Piercy.

Now they're talking about Fleetwood and that they heard(?) his plan is to aim at the middle of every green.  Curious how accurate that report is.

That's Tiger's plan too. The greens are so small you'll only have 20 footers or so.

Need to hit the middle of the fairway first. So far it seems the 2nd and 10th holes are kicking these guys butt. Two tough holes.

Someone forgot to inform Rahm and Piercy that this is supposed to be difficult.

No worries. The USGA will run the greens for tomorrow up to a 15 on the stimpmeter.

They only do that at Shinnecock.

Dont know much about this Van Rooyen, but it seems like he contends in majors. Remember him in the hunt at the British and the PGA.

This course plays pretty easy when there's a marine layer and no wind. In '92, they were tearing Pebble up until Sunday and the sun/wind came around. In '00, they scored lowest in round 1 when it was foggy. The next 3 rounds, only Tiger went low. In 2010, it was basically sunny every day so it played tough. 

Want Pebble to play tough? Ask for sunshine.
