Nick Dougherty is at #1 position after the first day of the 2007 US Open Championship.

Golf: Round One of 2007 US Open at OakmontThe young British golfer finished 2-under 68 heading the ledgeboard after the Round 1 of the US Open at one of the toughest layouts. Dougherty was critical of his own game this Thursday, but was happily surprised to find out that his short game put him atop of the board at the end of the day. Dougherty carded four birdies and two bogeys for his lowest score in a major golf championship.

Tiger Woods, the favorite to win the 2007 US Open by the oddsmaker Bodog Sports (odds 11/4), said he was content to finish one over par 71 tying the 13 position, despite landing on rough quite a few times and missing a few putts. Woods got a birdie at the 17th after nearly driving the green at the 313-yard par-four and pitching up to three feet. He struggled at the start of the second nine, finding the rough three times in a row and bogeying the 10th and 12th.

Phil Mickelson, who was the other favorite to win the US Open according to the bookmaker, was one of the late starters. Mickelson is still battling with a two-week wrist injury.
