Kevin Kisner shoots 66 to take early lead in British Open

Tiger Woods rests on his clubs

Tiger Woods rests on his clubs

"Holed a long putt on six for eagle and that was kind of the theme of the day", said Kisner.

"I've had four weeks off, so I've had a lot of rest". Tony Finau had eight birdies to offset his share of mistakes to join them at 67.

Woods has not finished in the top-10 at a major tournament since 2013. I feel like any time I'm around the green I'm going to make 4 or par at the worst. World number one Dustin Johnson, another of the U.S. contenders, goes out in the group behind McIlroy. Two under thru four...striping irons off the tee.

Here there are options off every tee as well with fairways that propel golf balls at every turn, and Woods opted for the conservative approach there. "The conditions have been fine".

"You're always trying to get it in and get it in as low as you can because you never know what the next day is going to have", Kisner said of the conditions.

"That's why I tried to stay as aggressive as I possibly could even though I wasn't hitting the driver maybe as well as I could". Woods felt much better after applying the tape and went about his preparation for his round, welcome news for a player whose recent career was derailed by back injuries.

Woods, 42, is a three-time victor of the Claret Jug and he believes that the unique conditions of links golf could offer him his best chance to add to his haul.

Then he stuck up for American workers on trade deals and for American taxpayers stuck paying for Europe's defense. So the US , along with Canada and European allies, is obligated to defend Montenegro in case it is ever invaded.

Even in gentle weather by Scottish standards, Carnoustie served up its usual dose of craziness. So had the unsettled Rose for a few minutes and a glower at the horseshoe of a crowd behind him in the light rough after hitting short to the green and a tossed putter to Fulch after missing a 10-footer to save par after a decent chip spoke volumes.

Round one of the 2018 Open Championship is in the books and it was a good one.

That was as easy as it got for Koepka for the next two hours. But he showed no ill effects from it as he stormed into contention only to fail to birdie No. 6 and then fall back with a series of miscues on the back nine. "Back nine obviously wasn't what I was after".

Dustin Johnson, the world's No. 1 player, managed only one birdie in his round of 76, his highest start in the Open since his debut at Turnberry in 2009. Masters champion Patrick Reed, Hideki Matsuyama, Bubba Watson, and Garcia were all at 75 and now have to worry about just getting to the weekend. He shot a 71, good for par for the day.

"Different players are going to have a different way to see how they're going to play this golf course, " McIlroy said.

"You know, it wasn't pretty off the tee, but I got it done, and I took advantage of some fortunate bounces", said McIlroy, who birdied the third and bogeyed the fifth, then picked up shots at the 12th and par-five 14th before saving par from around 25 feet at the 248-yard 16th.
