Pinehurst, N.C. _ My first very-important thought from the U.S. Open: Yeah, you're stuck with Chris Berman on your TV. But I'm stuck with Chris Berman on a massive screen in the US Open media tent. You win. First impression of the course: It was blazing hot the last few days. Today, there is cloud cover and it's relatively cool, which could save the course from becoming fast and borderline unplayable. The scores are reflecting that. Brandt Snedeker leads at -3, with Matt Kuchar, Webb Simpson, David Toms and Phil Mickelson at -2. It's already a great leaderboard. Minnesota native Clayton Rask teed off at 7:51, and I'll be updating his scoring throughout the day. Fellow former Gopher Donald Constable tees off at 1:31.
Ricky Fowler is wearing Payne Stewart-style pulled-up pants with checked socks.
Back with more throughout the day. I'll be on 1500ESPN at 12:15ish from Pinehurst.
In a combative opening debate, Hillary Clinton emphatically denounced Donald Trump Monday night for keeping his personal tax returns and business dealings secret from voters and peddling a "racist lie" about President Barack Obama. Businessman Trump repeatedly cast Clinton as a "typical politician" as he sought to capitalize on Americans' frustration with Washington.

William McGirt won his first PGA Tour event at the Memorial. Two hours up the road in Ohio and one month later, he had a three-shot lead after one round of the Bridgestone Invitational. It's a familiar theme, just a different character.
