U.S. Open

Who were the winners and losers on Day 1 at Pinehurst? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.

Martin Kaymer

Birdie: Martin Kaymer

Kaymer doesn't have history on his side, but he doesn't seem to mind. Aside from the fact that no German has ever won the U.S. Open, only one reigning Players champion (since the event moved to May in 2007) has gone on to finish in the top 10 of the U.S. Open the following month. But Kaymer is looking to change that. He built a three-shot lead Thursday after making six birdies and just one bogey, with his 65 a new low in three Pinehurst U.S. Opens. -- Luke Kerr-Dineen
