The third major of the 2022 golf season arrived with controversy swirling behind the scenes. However, the USGA ensured that as little wind as possible was removed from the sails of its first event as the contenders for the 2022 US Open began to take on the Country Club. It’s the first time since 1988 that a national champion will be crowned in Brookline, Massachusetts, and some of the top contenders will be playing with great momentum.
Masters champion Scottie Scheffler and PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas are both looking to double down. Scheffler is aiming to become the sixth golfer to win the Masters and the US Open in the same season, while Thomas is looking to become the seventh in history to win back-to-back PGA and US Open titles.
Neither was the favorite at Brookline, however. That honor belonged to Rory McIlroy, who entered the field hotter than anyone after defending his RBC Canadian Open title. McIlroy has three other top 10 finishes in his four previous starts and is one of four golfers to have finished in the top 10 in three (or more) of the last five US Opens. McIlroy made the most of his momentum, opening the game at the Country Club as club leader after shooting a 3-under 67 in which he went bogey-free through the first 17 holes. Rory was a little disturbed by his bogey on the 18th butentering the last 54 holes of action.
The manwas Phil Mickelson, who missed the first two majors of the year amid the fallout of controversial comments. Mickelson returned to action last week and entered the Country Club, still looking for a US Open to complete his career grand slam. Unfortunately for Lefty, he imploded in the first round with an 8 of 78 and is than to struggle.
While attending the US Open can be a lot of fun, just being able to watch golf on the game’s biggest stages is an incredible pleasure every year. At CBSSports.com, we’re excited to bring you comprehensive coverage of the US Open throughout the week.
