Luke Donald: Finished opening day as the leader of the US Open

Adverse weather conditions meant that several players did not manage to complete their first rounds at the US Open on Thursday.

A three-and-a-half hour delay early in the day due to storms and a smaller downpour later on put the second major of the year well behind schedule.

Phil Mickelson grabbed the clubhouse lead with a three-under 67 but Luke Donald topped the leaderboard on four under, a figure he reached after the 13th hole.
