SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - The rain had mostly relented by 5 p.m. Wednesday afternoon at Shinnecock Hills.

Fans were still scattered around the grounds and a handful of golfers were trying to squeeze out a few final practice holes on the eve of the U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods was not among them.

Woods was scheduled to tee off shortly after 7 a.m. but never showed up. The rain was rather heavy by mid-morning and Woods presumably didn't feel like stopping and starting should the weather interrupt play.

  What Tiger Woods said after opening-round 72 at the Memorial Tournament Tiger Woods' thoughts on a gutsy performance throughout his even-par 72 in Round 1 of the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio.Woods made double bogey on his sixth hole of the day and another bogey on the following hole, plummeting to 4 over through seven. He carded 39 on an ugly front nine but bounced back with a 3-under 33 on his back nine.

He finally emerged and engaged in a brief practice session around 3 p.m. before heading out, and the wait was just about over.

"I've missed playing in the U.S. Open. It's our nation's title and it's meant so much to me and my career," Woods said. "I'm looking forward to playing this week. I've really missed playing U.S. Opens, and this will be another fun test."

Theee nine-hole practice rounds early in the week will serve as the bulk of his preparation ahead of Thursday's 1:47 p.m. tee time with Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, guys he watched from the couch last year when he wasn't sure he'd ever have the chance to join them on another first tee.

"To go from there to where I'm at now, I had no expectation of getting this far," Woods said. "A lot of this is pure bonus because of where I was. To be able to have this opportunity to play USGA events, to play against these guys, best players in the world, it's just a great feeling and one that I don't take for granted."

Tight back gets best of Tiger Woods at Memorial, but it's not as bad you think

  Tight back gets best of Tiger Woods at Memorial, but it's not as bad you think Tiger Woods has issues with his back and still can't piece his entire game together, but he salvages his first round at Jack Nicklaus' Memorial.Now add a tight back to the list.

Tiger Woods finished at +8 after opening with a triple bogey and struggling on the back nine Thursday during Round 1 of the U . S SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — Fifteen minutes into Jordan Spieth’ s first round at the 2018 United States Open , his windblown tee shot on a par 3 skipped into a greenside bunker.

Tiger Woods fired an opening 8-over 78 at the U . S . Open . It was a rough Thursday for Woods . Here are some quick quotes on what he had to say after that “ I didn’t putt well today. … Just never really took advantage of opportunities. … If I putted like I did at the beginning of the year, then we’ve got

It's been 10 years since Woods last won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, his place atop the world rankings long gone. No. 1-ranked Johnson and No. 2-ranked Thomas have taken over instead.

Johnson wows everyone with his combination of length off the tee and steady iron play. It's hard to pick against him most weeks, especially coming off that six-shot win in Memphis. The 2016 U.S. Open champ in the prime of his career at age 33 and hoping to bag his second career major this week.

Which is why it's so absolutely insane to realize that at age 32, younger than Johnson is now, Woods had already won 14 majors. Equally stunning is the fact that he hasn't won another major since.

"I don't like that feeling," Wood said. "I've certainly had a nice run where I've won a few. Unfortunately, over the last 10 years, I haven't. But for the first few years of my career, I did well."

Woods' career is in a much different place at Shinnecock. This comeback that no one saw coming doesn't feel so new anymore. This will be his 10th start of the season, about half the number of tournaments he used to play in his younger, healthier days.

Tiger Woods fires 67 in promising but strange Friday at Memorial

  Tiger Woods fires 67 in promising but strange Friday at Memorial Tiger Woods put on a clinic tee to green for much of Friday at Muirfield Village, firing a 5-under 67 in the second round of the Memorial Tournament. The 42-year-old hit 14 of 18 greens, with two of those four misses involving balls that ended up on the fringe, as he jumped 23 spots to a tie for 24th. Woods is four off the clubhouse lead, and is currently six back of overall leader Kyle Stanley, who is still completing his second round.Woods opened his day inauspiciously when he rammed a 33-footer some four feet by and missed that comebacker to come out with a three-putt bogey.

Tiger Woods ' opening round at the U . S . Open got off to a miserable start and it only got worse from there. Woods opened with a triple bogey and found himself at 8-over after Day 1 . Nothing was going right for Tiger . The highlight of his day was helping Dustin Johnson find his golf ball in the rough.

The first half yielded plenty of promise, with the runner-up at Valspar and T-5 at Bay Hill and a ridiculously good weekend en route to a T-11 at the Players Championship. Each start yielded so much enthusiasm, so much curiosity and appreciation from the fans just thrilled to see him swinging freely in the flesh.

The enthusiasm hasn't worn off. If anything, it's much greater because he's capable of winning again. He was so close at the Valspar, when the comeback was still in its infancy stage, and Woods has proved plenty in the first half of the season.

"I've given myself chances to win, which I didn't know if I was ever going to do again," Woods said. "And also, then again, not happy with the fact that I didn't win because I loved how it felt being there."

The second half of the seasons starts Thursday at Shinnecock, as Woods looks to take the next giant step and do the unthinkable once again.
