Some of the first off the tee are coming into the clubhouse, and the leaderboard on the first day of the 2011 U.S. Open is starting to take shape. Oddly enough, it doesn't include any of the three from the "power group." Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Martin Kymer, the top three players in the World are in the same group and are a combined eight over par. Not so good. But there are some players playing well so far, and that includes a couple of Americans. Here are the top ten as it stands right now.
T1. Bubba Watson: -3 through 15
T1. Ryan Palmer: -3 through 14
T1. Y.E. Yang: -3 through 17
