Dustin Johnson appears to have moved on from his U.S. Open meltdown.

Johnson fired a 7-under 65 in Thursday’s first round of the British Open on the Old Course at St. Andrews.

In last month’s U.S. Open, Johnson missed a short putt on the final hole which would have forced a playoff. Instead, Jordan Spieth won his second-consecutive major. Spieth was in a group at 5-under 67 in the Open, 2 strokes off the lead.

Six players, including Jason Day and Zach Johnson, were a stroke back of Johnson at 66.

Tiger Woods had a rough day, shooting 4-over 67. John Daly, on the other hand, was in the clubhouse at 1-under.
