The U.S. Open Practice round in Pinehurst, North Carolina, started on Monday. Golf fans got their first look at golfers who are competing in the tournament, which begins on Thursday.

Only a few dozen people watched when the first group teed off at 6:45 a.m. An hour later there were hundreds of people who were following golfers around the course. By late morning, thousands of people were on the grounds watching.
