2012 US Open Tee Times And Pairings For Friday: The Field Prepares For Round 2

The first day of the 2012 U.S. Open on Thursday offered no shortage of surprises and established the early storylines for the remainder of the prestigious Grand Slam event. The Olympic Club in San Francisco has proved to be every bit as challenging a course as was anticipated with elite golfers such as Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson having a devil of a time getting anything to go their way.

Meanwhile, odds-on favorite to win Tiger Woods had a very strong start to the tournament, finishing at 1-under to finish in a four-way tie for second place. Michael Thompson had the best start of anyone, finishing at 4-under to claim a three-stroke lead at the end of the first round.
