The 2012 U.S. Open proved a tough battle for most golfers at the Olympic Club on Thursday. After Round 1, Michael Thompson is 4-under and holds a three-stroke lead over Tiger Woods and four others who sit at 1-under. That is everyone who is under par for the tournament so far.
Colorado St. alum Martin Laird is in a tie for 109th place at 7-over. On Friday, Laird is in Group 18 of 52 and will begin Round 2 at Tee No. 9 at 9:28 a.m. MT. Ben Crane and Anders Hansen remain his partners for one more day. Crane finished his round at 7-over, like Laird, while Hansen is in better position at 2-over.
