Tiger Woods looks to catch Justin Rose and the pack atop the US Open leader board

June 14 at 10:01 AMTiger Woods had a fairly uneventful day during the first round of the U.S. Open on Thursday, closing with 11 straight pars and a score of 1-under-par 70 that left him five shots behind leader Justin Rose.

With a bunch of golfers right on Rose’s tail and placid playing conditions benefiting just about everyone, a similar runaway doesn’t seem to be in the cards this year.

Let’s see if Woods can join the pack at the very top of the leader board when his second round begins on Pebble Beach’s back nine at 11:24 a.m. Eastern.

For those golf fans expecting Tiger Woods to flash more of his Masters magic at the U.S. Open, Thursday’s first round proved to be a frustrating few hours.

In the early rounds of major tournaments, it’s entertaining — but also instructive — to listen for the golf love stories and the heart-deep personal narratives that come from the mouths of the world’s greatest players.

The entire day felt like that otter who got airtime on the Fox broadcast, rolling and lolling in the water in rarefied contentment.
