MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Tony Finau finished the first round of the U.S. Open one-under par with a score of 69 at Winged Foot GC.

Finau is tied for 14th and is four shots behind Justin Thomas, who is the current leader in the clubhouse at -5.

Utah native Preston Summerhays shot two-over par in his first round and is tied for 56th in the U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods struggled in his opening round of the major with a +3 score.

Finau’s Round

The Rose Park, Utah native started the first round with two straight pars on Nos. 1 and 2. He followed up with two consecutive bogeys on the third and fourth holes. After a par on No. 5, Finau scored a birdie on No. 6. Two straight pars came after the birdie before Finau nailed his second birdie to finish the front-nine at even par.

The back-nine started with a par on No. 10 before nailing two straight birdies on No. 11 and 12. Finau pared the 13th hole. On No. 14, Finau recorded a bogey, followed by a par on No. 15, and a birdie on No. 16. Finau was given a penalty on the 17th hole for causing the ball to move. That was later overturned and given a bogey rather than a double bogey.

He ended the round with a par on No. 18.
