Oosthuizen shares lead, Koepka 2 back as darkness ends Day 1 of U.S. Open
Oosthuizen still has two holes to complete in his opening round, which he'll finish Friday morning before a quick turnaround to begin his second lap around Torrey Pines South Course. The South African is one start removed from finishing as a runner-up to Phil Mickelson at the PGA Championship.
Following a one-and-a-half-hour fog delay, Henley posted 67 in the morning wave for the lowest score of his U.S. Open career to hold the clubhouse lead for the majority of the day.
Brooks Koepka, a two-time U.S. Open champion, briefly held the outright lead at 4-under before two bogeys on his closing nine dropped him into a tie for fifth. He posted his sixth straight sub-par round at the U.S. Open to match Sam Snead's tournament record.
In a race against complete darkness, Rory McIlroy hustled down the 18th fairway and was rewarded with a closing birdie to shoot 1-under 70, good for a share of 11th.
Here's how the top of the leaderboard stands with Round 1 suspended:
|Place||Player||To Par||R1 Score|
|T3||Rafa Cabrera Bello||-3||68|
Players will resume Round 1 at 9:50 a.m. ET on Friday. Round 2 will begin as scheduled at 9:45 a.m.
