The 122nd US Open is underway Thursday with the pre-tournament favorite among the clubhouse leaders after the morning session. Rory McIlroy, who went off at 10-1 to win the national championship per Caesars Sportsbook, shot a 3-under 67 to top the morning wave, going bogey-free for 17 holes until the last as he fell back into a tie for the lead at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
McIlroy began his quest for major No. 5 with a bang playing alongside 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama and Olympic gold medalist Xander Schauffele in a dynamite pairing. Neither is under par after their first rounds, though Collin Morikawa, Jon Rahm, Will Zalatoris and Adam Scott are notable names sitting two back of the co-leaders.
Brooks Koepka is among the afternoon headliners. He is also attempting to capture his fifth major championship while winning his third US Open. Koepka begins his tournament paired with world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler and Players champion Cameron Smith.
