World number one Dustin Johnson is looking to bounce back after going three over to start the U.S. Open on Thursday.
All eyes are on red-hot Johnson after his maiden FedEx Cup title and PGA Tour Player of the Year Award, but the American star shot a 73 to open his bid for a second U.S. Open crown.
Played at the unforgiving Winged Foot Golf Club, Johnson holed a double bogey, three bogeys and two birdies to be eight shots adrift of leader Justin Thomas in New York.
Tied for 71st alongside the likes of 15-time major champion Tiger Woods, former world number one Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose, an upbeat Johnson said: "It wasn't too bad.
"Just didn't drive it in the fairway enough. Honestly, I felt like I rolled it really well, but I just didn't make any putts.
"And I think that was the difference of shooting a couple under, and I shot a few over.
"But hit a lot of good putts. Going to go work on the irons a little bit. Hit one real bad iron shot on seven, but other than that, felt like I managed the course pretty well and played decent. I just didn't make any putts. I hit good ones.
"Get a little better with the reads tomorrow [Friday] and maybe drive it in the fairway a little bit more, but other than that, I feel pretty good. I didn't play great, didn't make any putts. So obviously tomorrow if I shoot a few under, I'll get back in the golf tournament."
