Here's a gif of lightning striking Merion Golf Course

The weather has disrupted the opening round of the US Open this morning.

AFTER A THREE-and-a-half hour delay due to storms in Philadelphia, the first round of the US Open is set to restart.

Play will resume at 5.10pm Irish time with ground staff currently working hard to clear water from the course.

Below is a gif of lightning striking at Merion Golf Club yesterday.
