UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash.—Sergio Garcia had 33 putts in his opening round at the U.S. Open. He's blaming the greens at Chambers Bay.

Garcia hit 14 greens but could not get his putter hot on Thursday. The Fox Sports commentators thought he had a flaw in his setup causing the missed putts, but Garcia was more concerned about the conditions of the greens.

For comparison, leaders Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson both hit 14 greens but finished with 27 and 28 putts, respectively.
