2012 U.S. Open Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Shoots 1-Under-Par In First Round, Sticks To Game Plan

Tiger Woods finished the first round of the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco with a 1-under-par round, which was good enough for a tie for third place on Thursday.

One of his playing partners, Bubba Watson, said about Tiger's performance, "Today he was just the old Tiger. It's just one of those things. He's won twice this year, so he's doing pretty good." (via ASAP Sports) Watson did not fare as well as Tiger Woods and shot an 8-over-par 78 on Thursday. The other player in the group, Phil Mickelson, shot a 6-over-par 76.

Woods said about his first round, "I played well today. I felt like I had control of my game all day and just stuck to my game plan and executed my game plan." (via ASAP Sports) He also added that he was content with the round and how he executed his shots on the course. Woods is currently tied with four other players and trails leader Michael Thompson by three shots.
