    US Open 2013: Luke Donald leads from Phil Mickelson at Merion


    Luke Donald edged ahead of Phil Mickelson with his final shot to lead by one after a rain-hit first day of the 113th US Open at Merion.

    The Englishman reached four under after 13 before play was called off, with Mickelson in the clubhouse after a 67.

    Adam Scott also got to three under, with holder Webb Simpson, Matthew Goggin and Alistair Presnell two under.

    Tiger Woods, who appeared to injure his left wrist, was two over after 10 with playing partner Rory McIlroy level par.

    Play was suspended for three-and-a-half hours on Thursday morning because of severe storms and then again for a short time later in the day, leaving almost half of the field to finish their rounds at 0715 (1215 BST) on Friday.
