ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — Tiger Woods' wrist looks better.

But that didn't keep him from a rough start as he resumed his first round Friday morning at the U.S. Open.

Woods put his first tee shot in the high grass at the long par-4 No. 12. On Thursday, he winced and would shake his left arm when playing shots out of the thick Merion rough, but there was no sign of discomfort when he struck his second shot at the 12th.

However, the ball landed in the rough again, and he bogeyed the hole to go to 3 over.

Luke Donald was the leader at 4 under through 13 holes when darkness stopped play Thursday.
