Justin Thomas: It’s sad LIV Golf is taking a toll on the US Open

Follow live scores and updates from the US Open at Brookline as the third major of the season gets underway among the “Black Clouds” of the LIV golf series. It has already been a crucial week for the sport, as the Saudi-backed competition’s opening ceremony began at the Centurion Club, while loyal supporters of the PGA Tour Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas put on a show at the Canadian Open. It sets out what should be an exciting week, as two opposing sides of golf’s civil war come face to face at The Country Club.

McIlroy, who faced the title-winning challenge of PGA Championship winner Thomas in Ontario last week, is the favorite ahead of the US Open as he seeks to end his major drought. The 33-year-old has played some great golf this season in the last two majors and believes he has the game to string together four consecutive rounds. The four-time major winner will also be challenged by defending champion Jon Rahm, who is among the early starters, as well as masters champion Scotty Scheffler.

Elsewhere, there will be a lot of interest in the LIV golf team, especially Phil Mickelson, just days after the PGA Tour banned rebellious players. Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed are among those who have signed up for the controversial event and the welcome they will receive will be another matter of what is set to be an eventful week.

The 13-year-old had plenty of swing from McIlroy, who widened his drive to the right and into the audience. He was able to take his approach over the creek guarding the green and keep it about 20 feet.

Some early red scores on the board, and a lot of American flags at the US Open as well. The -1 with Morikawa includes Hayden Buckley, Matthew Nesmith, Travis Smith and Australian Adam Scott.

Russell Henley just got one better after going from -2 to three.

Another short memory for Rahm! A wonderful approach downhill on the fourth trickle back to the inside five feet of the hole. The birdie put was temporary, Rahm was barely getting behind the putter, and it went wide.

After scrambling from the bunker, Morikawa knocks him down from a similar distance to save the draw.

US Open

A beauty of McIlroy at 12 o’clock. His approach was softened by a bounce on the ruff, which came up to the edge of the green, and it climbed about 10 feet to the fringe leading to the birdie.

Another chance is coming.

Shows a fine margin from Schauffel’s approach – who may have landed a step behind McIlroy, but got stuck in the rough. American almost chipped in though! Half a turn away from the birdie.

And so was McIlroy! The line looked good but it faded on the right.

US Open

Oops – An ugly one from third place Raheem puts a short cross as makes a U-turn around the lip of the hole. He drops to +1.

US Open

McIlroy sports a pretty iron plan in the little green on the par-3 11th, with pins resting on the front. McIlroy lands it and pulls his ball back toward the cup, dropping about 15 feet or so.

The birdie putt is about half a foot shorter, as McIlroy takes a dull look at the hole after tapping it. All three players in McIlroy’s group manage to beat and Hideki Matsuyama is able to make two from 10 feet.

US Open

McIlroy, who is starting on the 10th hole, finds the green with his approach but has about 40 feet left for his birdie. These greens look firm and lightning fast and the putt slides about four feet to the left. An early tester, but McIlroy rolls into the par put.

Morikawa has started well and is running with a birdie in second place – and how much of a putt it was from about 50 feet.

McIlroy is next and the Northern Irishman begins his US Open bid, after a week that has also seen the four-time major champion hailed as the LIV golf series’ staunchest and most prominent critic.

“It’s certainly a burden that I don’t need, but I have a very strong opinion on the subject,” McIlroy said this week. “I feel like I’m providing the thought process for a different point of view shared by a lot of people.

“The PGA Tour was built by the people and the Tour players that came before us – the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer…they built something and worked hard for something, and I hate to see all the players that came before us. Come and the work he has done with all his hard work has yielded nothing.

“Legacy, prestige… that’s all you have at the end of the day. You take everything away, and you’re left with how you made people feel and what people think of you. important to me.

“The crowd in Canada, LIV is never going to have it, it’s going to mean something. What they’re doing there makes no sense except to collect a ton of money.”

US Open

The tee-off time of 7:18 a.m. seems a bit harsh on defending champion Jon Rahm, but the Spaniard is running alongside defending Open champion Colin Morikawa and confident 23-year-old American James Piott, who was one of them. At the LIV golf tournament last weekend. Piot was seen wearing a LIV golf jumper during his practice round.
