The Olympic Club and U.S. Open may have beaten Bubba Watson before the first shot on Thursday.

@bubbawatson Thinking about WDing from US Open cause I want to watch @TigerWoods & Phil on tv. But I forgot I got the best seat in da house!! #CrazyFan

The Masters champion shot 8-over 78 with Woods and Mickelson. Watson joked later he discovered his fatal flaw.

@bubbawatson I figured out what I did wrong today on the golf course, missed the putt for 77. #golfishard

Before Graeme McDowell went out and shot 1-under 69, he did some scouting through the TV coverage.

@Graeme_McDowell Watching the coverage this morning, checking pins and getting a feel for it out there. Looks tough but good golf gets rewarded.

Kevin Streelman shot a first-round 76. Afterward, he did what he could to forget it.

@Steels54 Olympic drove me to one of these!!! #toughtrack66isridiculous

Hunter Mahan thought the examination administered by the U.S. Golf Association was fair.

@HunterMahan This is a true US open course and setup. Tough test but fair, happy to be +2 ready to get some sleep. Now watching ridiculousness!

Bob Estes shot 74 and thought he played great.

@BobEstesPGA 14 pars & 4 bogies today but that's the most confident I've ever felt playing a US Open round!

Rickie Fowler struggled late in the round, shooting 72. He put the ebb and flow into perspective.

@RickieFowlerPGA US Open = hard to move forward but easy to move backwards #grind

Ian Poulter shot even-par 70, thinking Olympic Club's Lake Course is a first-shot golf course.

@IanJamesPoulter Pretty happy with the days work. It's such a tough golf course I think it's harder to hit fairways than the greens.

Finally, Michelle Wie has finished all of her exams at Stanford. Today, she graduates.

@themichellewie Getting sooooo excited for my graduation this weekend at Stanford. I am feeling so grateful for all my experiences there. I couldnt attend my high school graduation so this one is going to be extra special to me!
