Mickelson, Watson Find Rough Start at US Open

Phil Mickelson lost a ball in the trees on his first swing Thursday, hit a spectator on another and spent more time in the rough than the fairway.

Playing partner Bubba Watson looked even more lost at The
Olympic Club, nearly shooting the 80 he feared he might put up
early in the week.

Such lack of precision cost both dearly in the first round of the U.S. Open. Five-time Open runner-up Mickelson opened with a 6-over 76, and Masters champion Watson had a 78. It was a stark contrast to the way the third member of the group, Tiger Woods, methodically moved from Point A to Point B in shooting a 1-under 69 on the tight, twisting Lake Course.
