ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — First-round play has resumed after a second delay for severe weather at the U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods was among the players whose rounds were halted. They returned to the course after a 44-minute delay Thursday caused by another round of thunderstorms at the Merion Golf Club.

There was an earlier delay of 3½ hours.

Phil Mickelson was the clubhouse leader, completing a round of 3-under 67.

Woods was 1 over when play was stopped the second time. He winced and shook his left arm after playing a shot out of the rough on the fifth hole, then bogeyed the hole to go to 2 over after play resumed.
