U.S. Open 2012: Jason Dufner Ends Day One At 2-Over, Dennis Miller Not So Fortunate

It's safe to say that neither of the local Cleveland guys did exceptionally well on Day 1 of the 2012 U.S. Open. Jason Dufner finished 2-over par, but Dennis Miller was +10 and never really seemed to have a shot at contention.

Perhaps Dufner can get things going on Day 2.

Meanwhile, Michael Thompson finished the day atop the leaderboard with -4, 66 score, which puts him three strokes ahead of the next golfer.

Tiger Woods is a part of that crew of five players in second place at 2-under.

The biggest disappointments on the day were defending U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson, who were paired with Woods. Mickelson ended the day at +6 with a 76 score and Watson was even worse, going +8. McIlroy shot a +7, 77 score.
