Wu tied for 24th as fog delays first round of U.S. Open
SAN DIEGO — Through the first 12 holes of his U.S. Open debut, Medford native Dylan Wu showed that the moment wasn’t getting the better of him.
Wu was at even par with six holes to go when play was suspended just before 8 p.m. local time due to fog Thursday night at Torrey Pines Golf Course. He was in a group of 17 golfers tied for 24th place, one that includes Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood.
He will restart his first round at 8:46 a.m. this morning.
Wu, playing in the second-to-last group of the day, racked up par after par following his bogey on the second hole he played, the par-3 11th hole. A birdie on the final hole of the front nine gave him a 36 and got him back to even par as he headed into the second half of his round.
The trend of pars only continued for Wu as he started play on the back nine, with three straight pars after he made the turn to the front of the course.
Before play was suspended, Wu made par on 10 of the 12 holes he played.
