Mickelson, Spieth and McIlroy have horrible first rounds at U.S. Open

No need to convince McIlroy. He was plus-10 through the first 11 holes with a scorecard that even a weekend duffer would shred: par, bogey, bogey, double, double, birdie, bogey, par, bogey, double, bogey. He eventually stopped the bleeding, playing the final seven holes at even par, but after an 80 it would require a Herculean effort to make the cut.
