Golf • Martin Kaymer shot a 5-under 65 to take a three-shot lead after the opening round of the U.S. Open in Pinehurst, N.C. The German birdied three of the last five holes at Pinehurst No. 2 on Thursday to break out of a tie with Graeme McDowell, Kevin Na and Brendon de Jonge. Kaymer closed his round by sinking a 6-footer to save par at No. 18. It was the lowest round ever posted for the three Opens played at this Donald Ross masterpiece in the sand hills of North Carolina. Former BYU golfer Zac Blair was at 1-over 71, in a tie for 36th place. > C2
