Thursday's Birdies and Bogeys

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.

Luke Donald

Bogey: Luke Donald

Fairways and greens is how Donald has made his bones as a tour pro. Shouldn't then, his record in the U.S. Open be better than just one top-10 in 10 starts? The Englishman isn't likely to improve that this week after an opening 77 that included a lone birdie on his last hole. His long-time bugaboo -- a lack of distance -- was evident as his average drive on Thursday (266.5 yards) was almost 15 yards shorter than the field's average. -- R.H.
