US Open golf 2021: first round – live! | Sport


Good morning, crazy guys from the west coast. It’s late in the afternoon here in Blighty; it’s going to be a long night. So let’s not get stuck in too many ceremonies.

Bryson DeChambeau defends his title at Torrey Pines, the scene of Tiger’s famous stage win in 2008. Jordan Spieth is the man to channel that injury-defying energy this week, having recently sprained his tightly tied right ankle. Two-time winner Brooks Koepka isn’t shooting 100 percent either, after knee surgery, but you can rule it out at your own risk. See also: Phil Mickelson, 51, yesterday, the oldest senior winning swinger in town, hoping to complete his grand slam career in one of the fields of his youth. Other players, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, Tony Finau, Hideki Matsuyama, Rory McIlroy and most of all Jon Rahm, who gets along very well with this place, are available. We will reach all of them in due course.

There was a delay of about 90 minutes this morning due to fog, although some of the big names are already there, and we’ll get to that in a minute. But in the meantime, for the sake of completion and for what it’s worth now, here are today’s scheduled departure times (US Unless noted, all UK times). The first round of the 121st US Open has begun!
