The first round of the US Open was a total washout as play was abandoned for the day at Oakmont.

There were three delays in total as heavy downpours and thunderstorms in Pennsylvania brought frustrating stoppages to the opening round of the Major championship.

The decision to abandon play for the day was made at around 4.45pm local time as rain drenched the course.

Relatively unknown golfer Andrew Landry is the early surprise leader on three-under-par through 17 holes.

Ranked No 624 in the world and playing in his first Major championship, the 28-year-old Texan got off to a flying start and was five-under-par at one stage. However, he dropped two shots just before play was suspended for a third and final time.

Bubba Watson and Danny Lee are one stroke back through 14 and 13 holes respectively, while US amateur Scottie Scheffler is one-under-par.

Only seven players are currently under-par in the opening stages of the first round.
