Tiger Woods at the US Open 2013 Tracker: Day 1 Score, Highlights and Analysis

Ben AlberstadtFeatured ColumnistJune 13, 2013

For Tiger Woods, who hasn't won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, the 2013 U.S. Open marks the fifth year of his dry spell at golf's most significant tournaments. Now, with a disappointing Masters behind him and four victories under his belt this year, the world No. 1 seeks to rebound from a career-worst showing at the Memorial Tournament two weeks ago.

After heavy rains pushed his tee time back by more than three hours, Woods bogeyed his opening hole. He made up for it with a birdie at the second, but didn't look sharp from that point forward. Unable to get the speed of the greens, hitting a few atrocious pitch shots and struggling off the tee for most of the round, Tiger was two-over par through ten holes when play was suspended due to darkness. 

Of more immediate concern than the poor performance—which places him six shots behind leader Luke Donald—is an apparent injury to his left wrist/arm. Woods seemed to injure himself while hacking out of the rough on the opening hole. He appeared bothered at times and was clearly in pain after an approach shot from deep rough on his final hole of the day.
