Justin Rose equaled a record at Pebble Beach set by his partner Tiger Woods. Rose has started incredibly and takes lead with a score of 65 where he putted incredibly without one miss inside 15ft. He equaled a course record that was set by Tiger Woods 19 years ago!! 3 consecutive birdies put him 1 shot in the lead with some big hitters and bookies favourites sat right on his heels in a very high standard day 1.
Tiger woods shot a 69 so isn't a mile behind and we have seen in recent times, you can never write him off. However, Rose will have to maintain this form to see off a chasing in form duo in Rory McIlroy and Brooks Kopeka who are both in the form of their careers and entered as favourites.
Justin Rose is now the bookies favourite at 6/1, with McIlroy 7/1 and Koepka at 8s. You can grab a free bet and check out our enhanced golf betting offers for the US Open at our free bets page.
