Former University of Kansas golf standout Gary Woodland opened the 2022 U.S. Open golf tournament with a 1-under par 69 on Thursday afternoon at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Woodland carded three birdies and two bogeys on the day, including a bogey on his last hole of the round, the par-4 ninth.

He birdied two of the four holes before that after picking up a birdie on his second hole of the round earlier in the day.

Woodland's round left him in a tie for 14th place, three strokes behind leader Adam Hadwin.

Woodland, who won the 2019 U.S. Open to become the first Jayhawk to win a major, will get Round 2 under way at 7:02 a.m. Friday on the first tee. He is slated to play with Justin Rose (-2) and Bryson DeChambeau (+1).
