The US Open began in earnest on Thursday at Pebble Beach, and a lot of people will have been surprised to see that the scores were so low. However, the conditions weren’t as tough as usual, so it allowed about a dozen men to break par on the day.
One of them was Justin Rose, who tied the all-time Open record at the course with a -6 65. There is still a long way to go for him, but it’s a good start as many think that the course will find its teeth in the rounds to come. Rickie Fowler and Louis Oosthuizen are among those one shot back so currently.
