Weather halts US Open

US Open organisers will be hoping for better luck on Friday after bad weather forced the suspension of play with only nine players managing to complete their first rounds.

Play was suspended three times due to adverse weather conditions before organisers finally called a halt to proceedings at 21.34 Irish time with half the field yet to start their opening rounds.

Andrew Landry heads the leaderboard on three-under after 17 holes and he will have a ten-foot birdie putt when he returns to Oakmont on Friday morning.

Amateur Scottis Scheffler is the current clubhouse leader on one-under, while Lee Westwood was one-under with five holes of his first round remaining.

"It's frustrating having to keep coming off but there's nothing you can do about the weather," said Westwood.

"I'm playing well though, playing nicely. I've dropped shots when I've missed it in the wrong spots and made some nice birdies too."

Ireland's Shane Lowry and Scotland's Russell Knox are level par, but world number three Rory McIlroy struggled in the poor conditions to sit four-over.

It was also a difficult day for defending champion Jordan Spieth as he was warned for slow play before his approach to the 17th spun off the green into a deep bunker.

"You've got to be kidding me! How is that in the bunker. That's such crap," said Spieth, who is one-over after 11 holes.
