Phil Mickelson's wild U.S. Open ride comes to somber, quiet conclusion

  Phil Mickelson's wild U.S. Open ride comes to somber, quiet conclusion Phil Mickelson never won the U.S. Open and it appears he never will. Mickelson missed the cut badly at Winged Foot, in what likely is his final U.S. Open start.He’d banked PGA Tour title No. 44 in February on the Monterey Peninsula, and despite all that unrequited love from the national championship, the seaside links figured to be one venue where Phil’s liabilities off the tee would be mitigated. But they weren’t. He fired wayward drives all over the lot and finished 17 strokes behind eventual champion Gary Woodland.

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (Reuters) - World number three Justin Thomas fired his lowest opening score in a major and held a one-shot lead after the first round of the U.S. Open on Thursday, while Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods were among a slew of big-name players well off the pace.

Thomas, who has one top-10 finish in five U.S. Open starts and missed the cut last year at Pebble Beach, drained a 24-foot birdie putt at the 18th for a five-under-par 65 at a Winged Foot layout that has yet to bare its teeth.

That left Thomas one shot clear of Belgian Thomas Pieters, American Matthew Wolff and Thomas' Ryder Cup teammate Patrick Reed, who aced the par-three seventh.

"It's one of the best rounds I've played in a while tee to green," said Thomas, who needed only 28 putts on Winged Foot's wildly undulating and speedy greens.

"There are a couple things here and there that definitely could have been better, but I made sure all of my misses were in the right spot, and that's what you have to do at a U.S. Open."

Four-times major champion Rory McIlroy, in his first start since becoming a father on Aug. 31, was among a group of three golfers two shots off the lead and the Northern Irishman later credited a new approach for his solid start.

"First round of a major you're always anxious to play well, and maybe I've overthought it at times," said McIlroy. "I just went out today and just took what was given to me a little more relaxed and played really nicely."

'DISAPPOINTING DAY'

Mickelson, who suffered one of his record six U.S. Open runner-up finishes at Winged Foot in 2006 and entered this week seeking the final piece of the career Grand Slam, birdied his first two holes before struggling to a nine-over-par 79.

"Yeah. I don't know what to say. It's a disappointing day," said Mickelson, who also carded nine bogeys and a double-bogey.

"It's a spectacular golf course, great design, awesome setup, and I thought it was a good opportunity to score low today. I just played terrible."

Woods (73) made a bogey at 17 and ended his round with a double-bogey as his approach rolled off the front of the green before he chunked a chip shot and missed a breaking bogey save.
