U.S. Open: Thursday's social round-up


After storms prevented half of the field from even beginning their first rounds at the U.S. Open, we look back on how a frustrating opening day unfolded on social media.

The unheralded Andrew Landry was the leader at three under when play was suspended for a third time, with Bubba Watson and Danny Lee one shot off the pace.


Real Madrid fan Sergio Garcia, one of those who did not manage to start his tournament on Thursday, appeared happy enough to be among the later starters.

A first delay for bad weather saw the players taken off the course for more than an hour and left Masters champion Danny Willett questioning a lack of preparation time for those resuming their rounds.

When play resumed, two-time Masters champion Watson surged up the leaderboard with the aid of a monster putt at the 10th.

Sadly, another storm was not long in coming.

Play was able to resume, with a handful of competitors finishing their opening round and Landry reaching his 18th hole, the ninth, with a one-stroke lead.

Yet more bad news was on the way for players and spectators.

When you hear the horn stop play yet again ...
