Johnson was favored to win the U.S. Open with 9-1 odds, according to oddsmaker Jeff Sherman of Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. Poulter also played in the morning, while Johnson and Henley played in the afternoon as the wind reached its full strength.
A spectator said "guaranteed this one isn't short" as Woods hit shot No. 5.
An interesting stat for downbeat Tiger fans out there, however, is he double-bogeyed the fist hole in three of the four rounds at the 2008 US Open, his last major victory.
While the 23-year-old qualified for the tournament through the sectionals, he appears destined for an early exit. That's a sharp contrast from previous year at Erin Hills, where 44 players broke par in the opening round to set a U.S. Open record.
"It was not very good", he said of unlucky No. 13. I played exceptionally well, and I played the par-threes well. So I limited the mistakes. I feel confident, I feel happy, I feel happy off the golf course, and it makes that a lot easier on the golf course. Four-putt. On No. 1, I hit it right through the wind and compounding my problem, I actually hit a really good flop shot.

"I was very happy to get the round out of the way this morning", said Rose as he predicted tougher conditions for the late starters.
Out in four-over 39, he sandwiched a tap-in birdie at the fourth between bogeys at the third and fifth before closing with four pars to finish the day just inside the top 60 alongside the likes of Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood on five-over.
Rose got under the card for the day when he converted a nice pitch to eight feet for his second birdie of the round at the 10th, although he had to scramble hard down the stretch and was unable to avoid blemishes at the 11th and 14th. It was about hanging in there.
"If I'd shot a 72 or 73, it would be a good day's work as well". I just think today was the toughest day we'll have all week. Stallings asked. "I mean, it just doesn't happen". "Shoot something in the 60s [Friday] and I'll be fine". So just kind of keep hanging in there.
