(ERIN, WI) - Erin Hills played like a pushover for a U.S. Open. Check out the score of Rickie Fowler, who matched the U.S. Open scoring record to par for the opening round with a 7-under 65. Right behind him were 43 other players who broke par, breaking a championship record that had stood for 27 years. Adam Hadwin tied a U.S. Open record with six straight birdies. Erin Hills also played like a beast. Look no further than Rory McIlroy, the No. 2 player in the world, who didn't hit a fairway after the 10th hole, shot 42 on the back nine and posted a 78, his worst score in 27 rounds at the U.S. Open. Jason Day made two triple bogeys and closed with a birdie to avoid the indignity of shooting 80. He still had his worst score in a U.S. Open. On a wild day of highs and lows, and even a commercial blimp that crashed and caught fire outside the golf course during the round, Fowler emerged with a one-shot lead over Paul Casey and U.S. Open rookie Xander Schauffele in a most peculiar debut for the 11-year-old golf course. Defending champion Dustin Johnson made only one birdie in his round of 75. Fowler's seven birdies were from no more than 12 feet, including three in a row around the turn. His 7 under par tied the record to par for the first round of a U.S. Open held by Jack Nicklaus and tom Weiskopf, who each shot 7 under 63 at Baltusrol in 1980.
