How Did San Diego Players Do After 1st Round of US Open?

Day One at Shinnecock Hills Golf Course

June 14, 2018 - 5:56 pm

   The US Open began this morning at Shinnecock Hills Golf Course. The first round is just about to finish and the local talent has done quite well on day one.



Scott Piercy played golf at San Diego State University and graduated in 2001. He finished his round at one under. Piercy is tied for third and is two shots back of the current leader Dustin Johnson.  He tees off tomorrow morning at 3:45 (PDT).


Xander Schauffele graduated from Scripps Ranch High School and also competed for the San Diego State University golf team. The 24-year-old finds his even-par score in sixth place and three shots back from the lead. He will tee off at 10:14 (PDT).


The Poway High graduate, Charley Hoffman, finished his round at one over par. He is tied for seventh with a few other golfers. Hoffman finished in eighth place in last year’s tournament.  His day starts at 5:24 (PDT).


Tied for 20th, Pat Perez finished his round at three over. Perez was a Torrey Pines High graduate and worked at Torrey Pines Golf Course with his father since he was 13 years old. He will round off the local representatives at 10:36 (PDT) tomorrow.


Carlsbad resident, Phil Mickelson, struggled in the Thursday round. Despite hitting all but one fairway, Mickelson finished at seven over and is unlikely to make the cut. He is set to tee off tomorrow morning at 5:02 (PDT) with Jordan Spieth and Rory Mcllroy.
