The 2012 U.S. Open is proving to be a tough course early on, as much of the pre-round talk about this year's tournament pegged a difficult time for the golfers. Early on in the day, Kevin Na and Jason Bohn are the co-leaders at 2-under. Na had been the sole leader after moving to 3-under following a birdie on Hole No. 15 -- he started on Tee No. 9 -- but he made bogey on the par-5 16th hole. Bohn has yet to make a bogey.
Also playing early is one of two marquee groups: Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson. Woods sits at 1-over after his first seven holes. Mickelson bogeyed the first three holes of his round made birdie on the par-3 13th hole and followed that with a bogey on the next hole. Watson is also at 3-over, like Mickelson.
Parker, Co., resident Shane Bertsch started the day on Tee No. 9 and just finished the 18th hole. He sits at 4-over after making four bogeys. Andy Zhang, the 14-year-old amateur in the field, is last at 7-over.
