Toms shoots opening round 70

There is little doubt former LSU all-American David Toms had quite a crowd looking on this morning.

Teeing off in the 8:44 a.m. starting in the 2005 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, Toms found himself paired with none other than Tiger Woods.

Two weeks after a disappointing finish at The Memorial Tournament, in which the Shreveport native blew a final round lead, Toms opened the U.S. Open with an even par 70.

Toms shot 35-35, birdying the third and 12th holes. He registered bogies at the seventh and 17th. Woods also shot an even par 70 (34-36).

Olin Browne shot an opening round 67, and is the leader in the clubhouse at 3-under par.
