Brooklyn, Mass. Canadian Adam Hadwin took the lead at the US Open in round 66 in the opening round of the US Open on Thursday at Brooklyn Country Club near Boston.

Hadwin quickly climbed to the top of the standings by playing a minus 4 in the top nine. After bouncing on the third hole, Hadwin made a four on his next five holes to propel himself to the top of the leaderboard. The Canadian played on equal nine full-backs to stay single at the start of the first day.

The British Columbia’s previous best result in a major was 68 three times, most recently in 2020 at the PGA Championship.

During the morning rounds, Rory McIlroy moved to the top of the standings with a first round 67 (-3).

Excited during this first round, McIlroy wrapped up his first round in the interim lead with England’s Calum Tarin, Sweden’s David Lingmerth and American Joel Dahmin at the end of the morning runs, before being overtaken by Hadwin.

On the fifth hole, McIlroy attempted to hit the green in a single shot but the ball hit an awkward point over the vault.

Forced to stand on the sand, he found himself in another basement – and then twice, out of frustration, hit the ground with his stick. But he managed to salvage the normal.

“At the US Open there are going to be some special things that happen, whether it’s a ball in a hard spot or something else,” he said. It’s hard not to get discouraged. »

He couldn’t save a tie on that ninth hole. But 67 people are honorable, and he made no apologies for his gestures of frustration.

“It was just a little bit to remind yourself how much you care about her,” he said.

McIlroy is chasing a fifth major title in his career, but his first since winning the PGA Championship in 2014. He is hoping to be ahead after winning the Canadian Open last week.

“It’s been eight years since I won a major,” McIlroy said. I just want to get my hands on it. »

Taryn, for his part, was the first golfer to return to the locker room and was on top after a stunning end to the round. The 31-year-old Englishman scored 67 (minus -3) on Thursday, climbing to the top of the leaderboard in his last five holes at The Country Club.

Tarren’s name is not found anywhere on the board, as it was still a 1 plus after 13 holes. However, he continued with the sparrows on the fifth and seventh hole, before adding Eagle on the 5-bar, 557-yard eighth hole.

Joel Dahmin and MJ Daffue also clocked 67secs to tie for second.

Dahmen discussed whether to play a 36-hole qualifying game 10 days ago in Ohio.

The mediocre movements and results tired him a little, and besides, it must have been raining. But he went anyway, and qualified by a small margin.

During the morning session, title contenders such as Colin Morikawa, John Ram, Adam Scott, Max Homa and Will Zalatores posted 69 (-1) cards. Ram is also the defender of this event.

Phil Mickelson, who made headlines for joining the LIV circuit, had a rough day with the plus8 overall. A fan favorite for decades, Mickelson was greeted more calmly than usual when he was introduced to a first tee in the afternoon. Lefty made four notably twelve-foot throws on the twelfth hole. He was celebrating his 52nd birthday, so to speak.

The new LIV Tour and its impact on professional golf are the hot topics this week at The Country Club, which is hosting the US Open for the first time since 1988.

Among the other golfers joining the breakout circuit, Bryson DeChambeau was level, while Dustin Johnson tied for seventh with a score of 68 (-2).

Michael Thorbjornsen started the 122nd US Open with a header to the right of the first track. Thorbjornsen, an amateur golfer who plays at Stanford, grew up about 10 minutes from Brooklyn.

Mexican Abraham Anser withdrew because he was not feeling well.
