U.S. Open leaderboard 2013: Everyone chasing Phil Mickelson

Scott Halleran

The late groups are making their way around the course, but everyone is still chasing Phil Mickelson.

The majority of the players are finally on the course, but Phil Mickelson's 3-under 67 is still good enough to lead the 2013 U.S. Open.

While Mickelson still leads, a few players in later groups have gotten off to solid starts. Estanislao Goya, Carl Pettersson and 2013 Masters champion Adam Scott are one stroke back at 2-under. After opening with two pars, Scott recorded back-to-back birdies to move to 2-under through four.

There is a nine-way tie for fifth place at one under, a group that includes Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Ernie Els. Tiger Woods, playing in a group with McIlroy and Scott, is not off to as good of a start. Woods bogeyed No. 1 and No. 3 and is currently 1-over through four holes. Woods found the rough on his first two holes and has had scramble in the early going.

Here is a look at how a few notable names are performing on Thursday with a complete leaderboard available at USOpen.com.
