The 30-year-old erased that jordan cp3 iv mistake with a short birdie putt on the fourth. Mahan 2-putted for birdie on the par-5 sixth to get to 3-under.

After six straight pars, Mahan two-putted for birdie on the par-5 16th to grab the lead. At the last, he converted a 12-foot birdie try to m ove to two clear.
“I hit a lot of good shots. It wasn’t like a hard round. I hit so many fairways and greens, I made it easy on myself,” Mahan stated. “I put myself in some great spots to make putts. Really proud of the up-and-down on 17. That was the only one loose iron I hit all day.”
De Jonge birdied the sixth and 10th to climb into a share of the lead at minus-5. He dropped a shot on the 11th, but atoned for that error with a birdie at No. 16.
Walker had a bogey-free round with a birdies on the 1 air jordan 10 for sale th and 15th.

Garrigus had four birdies and two bogeys on his opening nine, the back nine. Around the turn, he had three more birdies and a bogey on No. 5 for his 67.

Woods, who struggled at times with his wedges, opened with a 72 and was starting to feel that this was his third U.S. Open of the year — Bay Hill, which was firm and brittle in the final round and yielded only two rounds in the 60s; and Olympic Club two weeks ago, which really was a U.S. Open and was won by Webb Simpson at 1-over par.
“A couple shots today, the ball is bouncing as high as it flies,” Woods said. “It’s an adjustment we have to make.”
Congressional took a beating last year when unfavorable weather conditions in the weeks leading up to the U.S. Open and overnight rain during the championship made the venerable Blue Course a pushover. Rory McIlroy had a record score of 16-under 268 for an eight-shot victory.
The AT&T National was more of a grind.
“It’s certainly, I think, a little retribution for what happened last year,” Woods said. “Don’t be mad at me. I didn’t play.”
A year ago at the U.S. Open, there were nine cheap jordan 6 shoes ounds in the 60s and 21 players broke par in the opening round. On Thursday in the AT&T National, only seven players were in the 60s and 22 broke par.

For the U.S. Open, two of those rounds in the 80s were by amateurs, a third by Ty Tryon.
