U.S. Open Resumes After Rain Delay

In this article…

Rainy conditions in Pennsylvania delayed the opening day of the U.S. Open, but as the weather cleared, the tournament has resumed.

The early groupings teed off at the crack of dawn, and they got in a few holes before severe thunderstorms rolled through the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA. Merion is one of the oldest courses in the U.S. and draws its inspiration from some of the U.K's old, rough courses. According to some golf analysts, the layout of the course with its long, tight, winding holes could cause trouble for some of golf's biggest names.

It's only the beginning in the tournament, however. Currently, three golfers, Charl Scwartzel, Tim Clark, and Ian Poulter all lead the pack at two under par. Other notable golfers, like Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson, have also teed off today and stand in ties for fourth (Mickelson) and 25th (Watson) in the early goings.

Most people will eagerly await the most popular tee-off time 4:44, which will bring the grouping of Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, and Rory McIlroy, the top three golfers in the world. There have been doubts about how well Scott or McIlroy will perform on the course, but analysts believe Woods is suited to contend for the title. Last year's winner, Webb Simpson, will tee off at 5:06 to defend his title and possibly become the first back-to-back winner of the major in nearly 25 years.

The tournament is being broadcasted on ESPN and live updates can be found on the U.S. Open's official site.
