Evening all ...Lawrence Donegan here with coverage of the Palm Springs pitch-and-put...eh ....US Open first round ......

I guess we'll start with the leaderboard .....frankly, it's a birdie festival, with Rickie Fowler leading the way

In other news .......... Dustin Johnson is stinking the place up. can't hole a putt to save his life..currently +3 ...still, there is a way back for him, especiallyu if the wind picks up in the afternoon and half the field get screwed...

Meanwhile John Ramn is +4 after 14 holes...Apparently, he has been behaving like a complete brat..in other words, like Justin Thomas....

Great sporting quotes of our times.. "fucking idiots.." - John Rahm, 2017......

Anyway, to the action ....... I'm watching on Fox Sports in the US...the coverage isn't the best ....but, hey ho ...

They must have positioned the sky commentary box after they knew Poults wasn't coming

John Rahm is about to putt for birdie on the sixth green ..he is currently +4 ... Bad news: putt slips just past. Good news: he's no abusing the paying customers.

Tommy Fleetwood on the par five seventh..he's currently -5 ...hits a gorgeous looking knock-down hybrid..trying to lay up......into the shin high rough. not the horrible stuff, but still unpleasant...

the seventh is 604 yards long..if only the modern ball went a bit further

Fowler on 6th...four foot for par .....centre cut.... remains -6
