Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood sit two strokes off the lead at the US Open after American Justin Thomas set the early pace at Winged Foot on Thursday.
Northern Ireland’s McIlroy opened with a solid three-under-par 67 in New York, which was matched by English former world number one Lee Westwood.
Thomas birdied the 18th to go one clear of compatriot Patrick Reed at five under par after carding an opening 65.
Reed had a hole-in-one at the par-three seventh, as did Will Zalatoris in a 70.
Zalatoris almost holed his second ace of the round at the par-three 13th but his ball hit the flagstick and rolled a couple of feet away.
In the previous five US Opens held at Winged Foot, there had been only two holes-in-one. (BBC)
