New pro shots 22 over par at US Open

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — The thrill of playing in the U.S. Open was gone quickly for Scott Gregory.

Shinnecock Hills made sure of that.

The 23-year-old Englishman was among the first to finish his opening round, and he probably couldn't get away from the course quick enough. Gregory shot 92 – 22 over par, with only three pars in the round.

The worst hole for the new pro – the 2016 British Amateur champ missed the cut in last year's U.S. Open while still an amateur – was the par-5 fifth. Although the fifth was playing easier than any other hole in the first round, Gregory had a 7 there.

In one stretch, Gregory double-bogeyed three straight holes.

He perhaps could take some solace in the fact that only two players were under par when he finished.
