Johnson, who won last week at the St Jude Classic to return to world number one hit 12 of 14 fairways but just 12 of the 18 greens in regulation. Having started on the back nine, the highlight for the 2016 champion was a 45-foot birdie putt at the par-three seventh.His only bogey, and fourth of the week, came at the first after finding a greenside bunker and failing to get up and down.The American, one of only three players to score under par among the early starters, is looking to become the first player to win the US Open immediately after a victory on the PGA Tour. "The course is playing really long and it's definitely tough out there, but I felt like i played a really solid round. I hit some nice pitches from around the greens," said Johnson. More to follow.
