Phil Mickelson's first round at the U.S. Open didn't go according to plan.

He started out the day in horrific fashion as he was 5-over after six holes and it never got any better. He couldn't put together a run in the back nine and finished 8-over heading into the second round on Friday.

Mickelson is currently tied for 145th and there's a real chance that he may not make the cut for this event. 

Fans knew that they were likely in for a long day when Mickelson had a double-bogey early on. He missed three putts in a row and never recovered. 

This is only Mickelson's second event since he played at the Farmers Insurance Open back in January. 

He'll need to put together a second round for the ages if he's to make it to Saturday and Sunday. 

Adam Hadwin currently leads the field at 4-under with Callum Tarren, Rory McIlroy, and David Lingmerth right on his tail.
