Finally, golf is the focus again at the US Open.

Michael Thorbjrnsson opened the 122nd edition of the toughest Test in golf with a tee shot just off the first fairway at The Country Club. The amateur playing at Stanford grew up about 10 minutes from Brookline.

The US Open dropped to the alternate list for the first time. Abraham Anser of Mexico withdrew due to an illness. He was replaced by Patton Kizzare.

Next in line if anyone else withdraws is Ricky Fowler.

The days leading up to the US Open were filled with chatter and rave about a mostly Saudi-funded rebel series called LIV Golf that has offered Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and a dozen others huge wealth at the US Open. Used to be.

The PGA Tour has suspended them, although the US Open is run separately and is respecting the open nature of its championship.
