U.S. Open 2012 Leaderboard: Martin Laird Finishes 7-Over On Thursday

Colorado State alum Martin Laird didn't get off to an ideal start at this year's U.S. Open, finishing the day at 7-over after hitting a bogey on the course's first hole. He never quite rounded into shape, as he was 5-over after six holes and on the 16th hole he hit his second double bogey of the round.

With just a few golfers remaining before the conclusion of the first round of the tournament, Laird is sitting tied for 110th in the field. He managed to birdie two holes on the day, but there were far too many mistakes for him to work through on his first day at Olympic Club in San Francisco, Calif.

At the moment, Michael Thompson is the leader by a pretty solid margin at 4-under. There's a five-way tie between Tiger Woods, David Toms, Nick Watney, Justin Rose and Graeme McDowell for second place at 1-under, with another eight golfers finishing at even through the first 18 holes.
