It wasn’t Phil Mickelson’s day Round 1 of the U.S. Open on Thursday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, but Tiger Woods was a snake in the grass. Woods opened with a 1-under 69, three shots off the pace.

Michael Thompson is the surprise leader Day 1 at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. He shot an under-the-radar 4-under 66. “A lot of people don’t know who I am, and I’m totally OK with that because I’ve always been a player that just kind of hangs around,” Thompson said.
U.S. Open

SAN FRANCISCO
A quick look at the first round of the U.S. Open at The Olympic Club:
Leading: Michael Thompson, playing in his first U.S. Open, shot a 4-under 66 and was three shots ahead of the field.
Just behind: Tiger Woods shot 69, as did David Toms, Nick Watney, Justin Rose and Graeme McDowell.
Tiger watch: Woods played in the featured pairing, beating Phil Mickelson by seven shots and Bubba Watson by nine.
Defending champ: Rory McIlroy shot a 77.
World No. 1: Luke Donald, the top player in the world attempting to win his first major championship shot a 79.
Trouble at the top: The threesome of Donald, McIlroy and Lee Westwood, the top three players in the world, shot a combined 19-over par.
Quoteable: “Got a little nervous there once all those cameras showed up. It’s always a little bit of an adjustment. In that sense, I kind of wish I was Phil or Tiger, because you get the cameras from the beginning,” Thompson said.
Key pairings: 8:44 a.m. (Mountain): Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy; 2:18 p.m.: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson.
