Philadelphia's famously tough fans have booed hall of famers and even Santa Claus -- hey, Santa had it coming -- but the fans at the U.S. Open were easy on Sergio Garcia on Thursday morning at Merion following Garcia's well-publicized dustup with Tiger Woods.

Garcia is even through three holes, although he hooked his tee shot O.B. on the 14th hole before play was suspended due to heavy rain. Garcia and playing partners Padraig Harrington and Stewart Cink started play on the 11th hole.
