Making his first appearance in the U.S. Open since 2004, Templeton native Roger Tambellini carded a 10-over par, 80 in a rain-plagued first round at the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
The Atascadero High graduate was part of the first group to tee off. The 38 year old registered a double-bogey 6 on the first hole of the day. He was at 6-over par when a thunderstorm forced a delay for nearly three hours.
Tambellini finished the round with 5 double-bogies, 2 bogies and 2 birdies. He finished his round with a double-bogey.
Play was halted a second time around 6:15 pm Eastern time. At that point, Tambellini was tied for 138th out of the 141 players on the course.
Roger will look to rebound on Friday when he is set to tee off at 12:45 pm Eastern time.
Tambellini's only other appearance in a Major was at the 2004 U.S. Open when he missed the cut.
