The 2018 U.S. Open is underway. This year's event is being played at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island.

The course was expected to play tough, and it has so far in the early going. Some of these scores are ugly.

Two of golf's young stars are struggling big time in the first round. It hasn't been a good start for Jordan Spieth or Rory McIlroy.

Through six holes, both golfers are at +5.

Fortunately for Spieth and McIlroy, no one is playing well right now. More than 70 golfers have teed off thus far, and only six are under par.

They have time to get it going, but they need to start soon.
