The U.S. Open started wet and stayed wet Thursday, only 9 golfers completed the course. Most golfers, including former MTSU star Kent Bulle, had to wait to start their U.S. Open hopes until this morning. Bulle, will tee off at 8:11 a.m. Friday morning to begin his first round. His sense of humor wasn’t dampened as he sent this tweet to fans Thursday afternoon:
Went bogey free in my first day of the US Open. Hope to keep it going tomorrow.
