Torrey Pines Golf Course, La Jolla, CA — June 18, 2021

The 121st United States Open Golf Championship is underway with Day 1 in the books from Torrey Pines Golf Course just outside San Diego, CA. Things just got started a little late, a 90-minute fog delay Thursday morning caused play to be suspended in Round 1 prior to the completion of all rounds.

Golfers will return to the course early Friday to finish the opening 18 and then move into Round 2 play.

The Leaders

Russell Henley posted the early lead in the clubhouse with a 4 under par 67. Louis Oosthuizen joined him at -4 late in the day and has a chance to take the lead outright as he has two holes yet to play to complete his opening round. Sebastian Munoz is 2 under after 14 holes of play and could still make a run at the top spot.

Francesco Molinari and Rafa Cabrera Bello sit in the clubhouse a stroke behind the leaders at -3. Hayden Buckley, Hideki Matsuyama, Jon Rahm, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele share the 5th position with Munoz, currently at -2.
