Steve Stricker's US Open Sunday didn't really start the way he probably wanted it to.

After a par at No. 1, Stricker hit his tee shot out of bounds on No. 2, then hit this horrendous shank from the fairway.

Stricker ended up with an eight on the par-5 and dropped three strokes. It's going to be tough to regain those strokes over the next 16 holes, especially if you're going to keep hitting shots like this.
