Newly branded as the "ultimate test in golf", the US Open has always been famed for its toughness and Erin Hills, the longest ever layout for a US Open, was expected to add to that hard-man reputation. "If I don't three-putt, I shoot even".
He added: "It doesn't matter how good you hit it, if you struggle on the greens, there's nothing you can do".

The 28-year-old's seven-under-par total matched the lowest to par score ever carded in the opening round of a US Open, a record shared by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf since the 1980 tournament. That still didn't appear to be almost enough.

"If we can't hit it within that avenue, you might as well pack your bags and go home". By the end of the round, once you get through six or seven of those misses and the hole starts to look smaller and smaller ... and then it looked like I was putting at half a cup.
"Being out of position off the tee does not help", he said.
