US Open is back in action

Despite the consistently bleak conditions at Bethpage Black, the first round of the US Open is back in action.

The course is very soggy. 1" of rain fell on the New York state park yesterday, and players are certainly facing rough conditions.

Tiger Woods has not produced the hot start his fans were hoping for. He left the course with a 10' par putt left, and he narrowly missed to begin the day with a bogey. Nevertheless, Tiger was at +2 after 15 holes, which places the world's top player in the top 15.

Ben Martin, an amateur, holds onto the lead after 12 holes. He is at a stellar -2. Can he keep it up though? An amateur victory would be something else in this day and age.

Drew Weaver was the first to post a score under par. A solid 69 will leave the Virginia Tech graduate near the top of the leaderboard.

More updates to come. Kenny Perry, Rocco Mediate, Phil Mickelson, among others, have not started their opening rounds yet.
