First round of U.S. Open resumes
ARDMORE, Pa. - The opening round of the U.S. Open has resumed after prolonged rain delays yesterday kept play from being completed.
More rain fell overnight on the Merion Golf Club course near Philadelphia and cooler temperatures greeted the golfers that had to be up early to finish the round. There is a chance of more rain throughout the day.
Tiger Woods is showing no ill effects of the wrist that he appeared to tweak hitting out of the rough yesterday. But he continues to find the high grass today. The three-time Open champ remains at 2-over par through 15 holes.
After closing the day with three straight birdies to get to 4-under yesterday, Luke Donald bogeyed the par-4 16th hole. That puts him in a tie for the lead with Phil Mickelson, who shot a 3-under 67 yesterday.
Reigning British Open champ Ernie Els birdied the 10th hole to get to 2-under through 13 holes.
