US Open: Tiger makes awful start as McIlroy, Spieth toil at Shinnecock

Brooks Koepka says he is now '100 per cent' past his injury

"I thought there were a few pins that were, I would have said, why didn't you put them two paces closer", Spieth said after an 11 of 18 greens-in-regulation effort.

The golf season's second major has arrived with the 2018 U.S. Open in Shinnecock Hills.

After hitting a nice tee shot and finding the fairway on the first hole, Woods hit his approach shot over the green and into the rough.

McIlroy managed to stop the rot with a scrambled par at the third, playing the toughest hole on the course, and he took steps towards recovery with a good pitch and putt for birdie at the fifth before nailing a 25-foot putt for another at the sixth.

The 22-year-old's round included two triple-bogeys, three double-bogeys, 10 bogeys and three pars as he fell 24 shots back of the lead midway through day one.

High winds and brutal course conditions contributed to several high scores in the first round, including a +10 from Rory McIlroy, who posted his worst round to par in his career at a major, according to CBS Sports. And for the first time since 2015, the U.S. Open leaderboard includes three-time victor Tiger Woods. He won the British Amateur Championship the year before.
