— Play in the opening round of the U.S. Open wasn't completed because of rain delays and darkness. When play was called the on-course leader was Luke Donald, who was 4-under through 13 holes.
Five-time runner-up Phil Mickelson grabbed the early clubhouse lead in the first round. He didn't get much sleep before his first round began, but as it turned out it didn't really matter. After attending his daughter's eighth-grade graduation on Wednesday in San Diego, Mickelson flew cross-country through the night and arrived at the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa., just four hours before his 7:11 a.m. tee time. He then proceeded to shoot an opening round 3-under-67
It was his lowest opening round since 1999 in the Open.
The two weather delays totaled four hours and 13 minutes.
Tiger Woods was on the course when play was stopped. The world's top-ranked player was 2-over through 10 holes. Defending champ Webb Simpson had completed eight holes and was 2-under.
