US Open First Round Live Updates, Leaderboard: Brooks Koepka Again Fishes Big Game at Pinehurst

The 124th US Open will be held at No. 2 Pinehurst in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

From the jump, the field will be haunted by world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who is on a warmer not seen since Tiger Woods’ heyday. Schaeffler hits the afternoon wave (1:24 p.m. ET to be exact) with Rory McIlroy and Xander Scheufele. By then, they will have a good idea of ​​how hard it is to play on the field.

It plays hard, with many more players above level than below.

Brooks Koepka, who has won this tournament twice, is early gunning for third place. Woods, on the other hand, struggles early. It may be difficult for him to qualify, something he also failed to do at the PGA Championship last month.

If you’re looking for tee times, you’ll find them here.

If you’re looking for how to watch, we’ve got that too.

If you want some help following the procedure, do the following:

He lives25 updates

  • Aberg and Cantlay join Pavon at the top

    Matteo Pavon’s lead is now over. Ludvig Aberg just tapped in a birdie to get to 4-under, and Patrick Cantlay made his second straight birdie to join them in the lead.

  • Neil Shipley jumps to 2 under

    Neil Shipley from the depth! The amateurs are now back after a short birdie at the turn.

  • Another Tiger Woods birdie

    Finally, after a bad stretch from Tiger Woods, we have another birdie.

    Woods held his approach to the green from about 260 yards on the par-5 5th, setting him up for an easy birdie putt. He is three years old now.

  • Leaderboard update

    Matteo Pavon was stunned, so his lead was reduced to just one shot. But so did Brooks Koepka, who once again moved back to second place.

    Here’s a look at where things stand at the top of the leaderboard in the early wave:

    1. Pavon-4 (11)

    T2. Henley -3 (13*)

    T2. Aberg-3 (12*)

    T4. Koepka-2 (13)

    T4. Cantlay -2 (13*)

    T4. Molinari -2 (10*)

  • The tiger continues to stumble

    What a tough stretch for Tiger Woods. He has now made five bogeys in his last seven holes to drop to 4 over. It’s been pretty much downhill since he opened his day with a birdie.

  • Matteo Pavone jumps forward

    We have a new solo leader in the early wave. Matthieu Pavon just jumped by two after a huge eagle on the 10th pushed him to 5 under. This is his second of the day.

  • Brooks has company

    Ludwig Aberg and Frenchman Mathieu Pavon joined Koepka at 3 under. There are not many birds there, but there are a few.

  • The tiger makes a mistake

    Another mistake in the tiger’s approach leads to another ghost. He drove the ball down lane No. 2, only to need four shots to get down from 187 yards. After a great start, his tour began to decline.

  • Brooks… again

    There was a traffic jam at 2 under, and then Brooks Koepka did Brooks Koepka stuff — in this case, draining a 30-footer for birdie — to get to 3 under 10.

    The day started with Scottie Scheffler as the favorite. Who will you take now?

  • Another (not so good) one for the tiger

    Two three-pointers in three-hole range now have the Tiger at +2. He had a look at the birdie on No. 1 (his 10th), but left it 10 feet short. Yes, 10 feet is short. He missed it because of a bogey, his third in four holes.

  • The first ninth update

    When players start playing their roles, here’s what we’re up to:

    – Only 14 of the 78 players in the tournament are below par; 47 above average

    – Brooks Koepka appears to have been called upon early, something we’ve seen before.

    – Tiger Woods has his putter that works. His problem on the last few holes was getting the green in regulation and giving himself good birdie opportunities.

    – It will never happen to Phil Mickelson again. He was already over five after just seven holes.

    – Par is a good score.

  • Consecutive bogey of the tiger

    Facing a 57-foot birdie, Tiger ran nine feet next to the hole. He burned the edge of his par putt and that’s back-to-back bogeys to move him to within one point through eight holes.

  • Here comes Brooks

    Brooks Koepka loves the majors. Heard that before? He is now at the top of the leaderboard thanks to a birdie at No. 7. He and Logan McAllister are in second place.

  • The tiger gives one back

    A rough drive, a punch, and a less-than-stellar shot to 19 feet led to Tiger Woods’ bogey at 16. (Although he didn’t miss the hit by much.)

  • Logam at the top

    Well, we’ve brought the jinx on Aberg, because he’s upset about getting back to 1-under where… We have a 15-point tie for first!

    This includes: Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler, Tony Finau and a qualifier named Sergio Garcia.

  • Tiger Woods’ iron shots were skewing right all morning, but he was perfect off the tee at 15. He approached another bird, but settled on an equal footing. His shot in the 16th minute was unsuccessful, as he missed the fairway for the first time this morning.

  • Remember Ludwig Aberg

    Probably not, this US Open is the third major tournament of his career, but you may remember that the 24-year-old Swede finished second, behind Scottie Scheffler, at the Masters in April.

    Well, after failing to qualify for the PGA Championship last month, he got off to an early start with a 2-under round to put himself at the top of the leaderboard.

    Yes, it’s very early in his career, but he has the potential to win a major title.

  • The tiger is making moves

    Tiger Woods almost had a disaster on the 14th, as the ball on his second shot nearly rolled down the hill off the green, but he was able to turn it into a great shot. He missed his putt from about six to eight feet, but saved par and kept his cool, looking calm but serious as he retrieved the ball from the hole.

    Tiger’s playing partners also reached 14. Matthew Fitzpatrick birdied the hole, while Will Zalatoris made a birdie.

  • Tiger has the bat working early

    After splashing his approach to the bunker on 12, Tiger Woods was able to get up and down from about 10 feet to save par.

    Then on 13, after a perfect drive, he birdied close to the green, then chipped back in to give himself an 8-foot putt for par and… drained it again.

  • About those vegetables

    When we say a “turtleback” green, this is what we’re referring to… a shot that looks solid toward the green, only to be on the wrong side of the marsh… and heading downhill.
