I hope they play a little faster this week.  The last group goes off at 2:57pm PDT.  I wonder how many groups will not finish because of darkness.

that's pretty much just over 4.5 hours of daylight. Going to be cutting it real close for last couple groups

I have a feeling the last group will be a little late teeing off.

Wasn't the average round times on Thursday and Friday of the ANA approaching 6 hours?

They will tee off at the correct time;  it will just slow down from there.  Typically they space it out enough for the prior group to be on the first green before they reach the next tee time.   Don't really see backups on hole one.

Going to be windy... in excess of 20 mph.

Very strangely, they ate teeing off on holes 1 and 9 today (not 10).

That is definitely odd

Did they change the hole numbers from what it normally plays?

Olympic is one of those old-school routings that winds in and amongst itself several times.  If two tees are going to be used, #9 makes the most sense.  Otherwise, #10 is in the middle of the routing and pretty far from the clubhouse.

Haven’t watched or checked the leaderboard but I am thinking Nelly Korda will come out on top.  She seems to have the best game on tour at the moment

She's not playing very well.  Thrown away a few shots with some sloppy play.  Sitting at +3 thru 10 holes.

Wonder what affect the sisters are having on each other. I'm sure they play a lot together in non tour events - but this is a bit different. Jessica is -1 through 10. Of course this is just the morning of the first day.

Is it possible to place a bet that someone with a 'K' in their name will win it?  With the Kim's (first & last names), Park's, Ko's, Korda's, Kang, Kerr, Tavatanakit, Brooke's, etc. in the mix I think I'd have a good chance of winning!

9th group off starting on #9 at 8:28am, the Kordas and So Yeon Ryu just finished at 1:58pm.  A nice leisurely 5 1/2 hour round.

Listening to player comments about the course and most are saying it is among if not the most challenging they've played. Does the reality of being tied for the lead in the US Open set in for Ganne going into round 2?  She certainly gives no impression of being nervous.  Will be fun to watch how things unfold.

Ganne is in high school and a 4-time Drive, Chip and Putt finalist.  Her handicap index is +5.4

I thought her name sounded familiar.  And how about 14 year old's Avery Zweig and Chole Kovalevsky, and another 17 year old recent winner at Augusta, Tsubasa Kajitani.  Is it just me or is the field getting younger as the years roll along?
