It is still very early in the first round of play at the 2012 U.S. Open. Already, the tricky course at the Olympic Club is wreaking havoc on a few of the presumed favorites.
Through five holes of play on Thursday morning, Phil Mickelson started with three straight bogeys. He made par on his fourth hole, the 12th on the course, to stay at 3-over. He finally got back on track hitting a birdie on the 13th hold to put him at 2-over. Mickelson is part of a high-powered trio that includes Bubba Watson and Tiger Woods.
Woods is even after five holes, after shooting par on all of them. He is currently tied for sixth place with a smattering of other golfers. Watson is at 2-over after five holes, including two bogeys.
Kevin Na leads the field at 2-under after six holes of play. Na started on the 9th hole, and made birdies on the 10th and 14th holes to get to the top of the leaderboard early.
