Full Broadcast | The 150th Open at St Andrews | Round 1


After plenty of warm and dry weather in the lead-up to the Championship, a firm and fast Old Course greeted the competitors on day one.

With little wind to speak of, scoring was predictably low, with those out earlier in the day enjoying particularly benign conditions.

Pre-Championship favourite Rory McIlroy and Cameron Smith were among those to prosper with respective scores of 66 and 67, but the early lead went to Cameron Young, the PGA Tour rookie who came close to glory at this year’s PGA Championship.

On his Open debut, Young flew out of the blocks with five birdies on his front nine and two more at the 11th and 12th to reach seven-under-par.
