NORMAN REPEATS MASTERS OPENING SCORE

Who said Greg Norman was inconsistent?

He started the U.S. Open with the same opening-round score as the Masters in April.Alas, that was a 78, and it probably condemned him to the same fate - missing the cut in a major tournament.

Norman was done in by three sixes in a six-hole span, each worse than the one before: bogey on the third hole, double-bogey on the fifth and triple-bogey on the eighth.

"I just got off to a bad start, that's all, bud," Norman said. "You've got to hang in there, mate. That's golf."
