Disagree without it having a wow factor, proper test around here. The goat track that is St Andrews is only on the rota for its history. Each to their own. I think this looks like being a very good tournament with 10 under looking a decent target for Sunday

Big gap from 1949 to 1981, but a proper nostalgic trip to read through the winners from there.

74 Open Championship's played since 1946, 48 individual winners.

Peter Thomson and Tom Watson both won five, Bobby Locke won four.
Gary Player, Seve Ballesteros, Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, and Jack Nicklaus all three time winners.
Greg Norman, Lee Trevino, Pádraig Harrington, Ernie Els, and Arnold Palmer all won it twice.

35 men have won it one one occasion.

Spieth the new leader in the clubhouse, six birdies and one bogey for a five under 65.
By:

When: 15 Jul 21 14:24
It's proving a difficult tee shot at the 7th. Only 43% of drives have settled on the fairway at this 566 yard par 5 hole making it the 3rd hardest tee shot on the course.
By:

When: 15 Jul 21 14:25
The 496-yard par 4 15th is so far playing as the hardest hole in the Championship, with the 18th also adding to a demanding closing stretch. The par 3 11th, which measures 238 yards, is also causing the field a number of challenges in the breezy conditions.

The 14th hole, the 547-yard par 5, has played as the easiest hole so far at The Open - with almost half the field making at least a birdie. It has often been harder as in 1985 and 2011 the average score was 5.19 and 5.07 respectively, while it was as high as 5.3 in 2003.

Jordan Spieth: 3rd career opening round of 65 or better at a major championship

Brother Louis finishes with a bogey free round of 64, making him the clear leader on six under.

Little Rory will be going out on his round soon, likely feeling a little bit seasick after watching his rivals roll in the birdies for fun. A three over 73 is on the cards for the media darling Shocked

The last time Rory McIlroy won a major came in 2014. Jurgen Klopp wasn't at Liverpool, Leicester City hadn't won a Premier League title and even Will.i.am was making number-one records. Shocked

Bryson DeChambeau didn't hit his driver too often today but still could only find four out of 14 fairways as his struggles off the tee really put him in trouble.

He scrambled really well to eventually shoot 71, which was probably the best he could score given his problems, and he put it down to the club face on his driver when not mincing his words about his struggles.

"The driver sucks. It's not a good face for me and we're still trying to figure out how to make it good on the mi****. I'm living on the razor’s edge, like I've told people for a long time."

Louis Oosthuizen has six second places in the Open as well as his 2010 victory, and he’s finished T2 and 2 in his last two majors this season, so no real surprise he’s in contention again.

He shot 64 today at an absolute canter with no bogeys and no real issues for the likeable South African.

"In my mind the perfect round I could have played," he said. "I didn't make many mistakes. When I had good opportunities for birdie, I made the putts. Just a very good solid round.

"I've learned over the years playing major championships that patience is the key thing, and even if you make bogeys, know that a lot of people are going to make bogeys."

Early starter bonus today.

302 majors completed since 1946, 154 unique winners.
102 men have won just the one (66%), 25 went on to take another (16%), and 10 went on to win three (7%).

If you exclude Jack (18) and Tiger (15), that leaves 15 men with 87 titles between them, winning between 4 and 9 majors.

Winning a major is tough, winning multiple majors is tougher still.
Adding to your tally after a gap of seven years is a feat not often achieved.

Rory is still relatively young but it's going to take a significant change in his approach to resume winning ways in the biggest prizes in the sport.

It's only disappointing if you were expecting more.
His recent record in majors tells us to have low expectations and he rarely disappoints in that regard. Sad

Looks like I was overly optimistic with Rory's prospects for today, three straight bogey's on 5,6, and 7 Scared
