SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. Open (all times local):
Oosthuizen was among 36 players who didn’t finish the round Thursday because of a 90-minute fog delay at the start of the championship.
The South Africa had a 25-foot birdie putt when play resumed Friday on the par-3 eighth hole. He ran that 8 feet by and holed the par putt. He finished with a long birdie putt up the ridge on the par-5 ninth that came up 4 feet short and made that.
The 10 players who shot in the 60s include Rikuya Hoshino, the 25-year-old who has won twice in the last two months on the Japan Golf Tour.
The average score for the opening round was 73.7.
