Open 2022 LIVE: Latest results and Round 1 standings as Justin Rose steps back ahead of Rory McIlroy on course

Can Tiger Woods win the Open Championship?

The Open Championship is back for its 150th edition at the Old Course in St Andrews.

Tiger Woods returns, looking for victory number three on this hallowed turf after iconic victories in 2000 and 2005. The 15-time Major winner has denied claims he will retire after this week’s Championship but admits it could be his last time gracing the Old Course. While Rory McIlroy heads into the week as a favorite after renewed hope, he can add to his four majors after an eight-year drought. The Northern Irishman will join last year’s champion Collin Morikawa and form player Xander Schauffele, who has won back-to-back events this week in what promises to be one of the most eye-catching pairings after round one start times were released.

Other contenders include World No. 1 and Masters Champion Scottie Scheffler, 2017 Champion Jordan Spieth and last month’s US Open Champion Matt Fitzpatrick, who will join Woods and Max Homa in the most anticipated first-round group. This week’s winner of the Claret Jug will also go home with £2.1m after the record prize money was confirmed by The R&A.

Follow below for all round one results, rankings, updates and reactions from the fourth and final Major of 2022 in 2022:


Barclay Brown slams a birdie

English amateur Barclay Brown is enjoying a dream Open so far. After six pars to start, he shagged the 7th and just added another on the 9th to climb to -2.


Lap 1 upcoming start time

Who are some of the bigger names teeing off in the next few hours? I’m glad you asked! It’s a real hodgepodge of talent.

Round 1 Selected start times:

8:47 AM Brian Harman (USA), Pablo Larrazabal (Spa), Danny Willett (Eng)

09:03 Stephen Dodd, JT Poston (USA), Lee Westwood (Eng)

9:58 AM Rory McIlroy (Nir), Collin Morikawa (USA), Xander Schauffele (USA)

10:09 Viktor Hovland (Northern), Shane Lowry (Irish), Justin Thomas (USA)

10:20 Tony Finau (USA), Hideki Matsuyama (Jpn), Will Zalatoris (USA)


Big names on the pitch

Who are some of the big names early on in the course? A few LIV golf rebels received early tee times today.

Patrick Reed -1 (3), Ian Poulter E (4), Phil Mickelson E (4), Brook Koepka E (1) and Bryson DeChambeau +1 (2) are out there.

Tommy Fleetwood and 2019 champion Francesco Molinari are level on the 1st hole while Cameron Smith – the talented Aussie who won the Players’ Championship earlier this year and is a lot of people’s pick this week – on the 2nd. hole made a long birdie putt to move to 1.

At the top of the leaderboard at -2 are both Webb Simpson and Lucas Herbert early in the race.


Justin Rose is retiring

Some bad news on that first morning in St Andrews. Justin Rose has withdrawn from the 150th Open due to a back injury. It disrupted the Englishman’s practice lap with Henrik Stenson yesterday and he has not recovered.

He was supposed to be in a three-way with Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari at 8.14 but couldn’t tee off. Incidentally, Fleetwood made a par on the 1st after a nice two putt.


VIDEO: Paul Lawrie’s first tee shot

Here was the first tee of the 150th Open – Paul Lawrie with a nice iron in the middle of the 1st fairway.


Webb Simpson drops a shot

And just as I say this, Webb Simpson lets off a shot. His par putt from about 8 feet slips off the left edge. However, still leads the way with -2.


Early movers and shakers

So the 150th Open is in full swing. 1999 Open winner and proud Scot Paul Lawrie – who you may recall benefiting from Jean van de Velde’s epic collapse in a rain and windswept Carnoustie – had the honor of hitting the first tee. He found the 1st fairway with an iron and went on to make par, although it has since fallen to +2.

At the other end of the ladder, however, is Webb Simpson, who birdied at 3, 5 and 7 to jump to -3 – currently a two shot lead.

The likes of Seamus Power, Dean Burmester and Cameron Tringale are at -1 in the group. Of course it’s still incredibly early


Ian Poulter gets a rough reception on the first tee as Open gets underway

LIV golf rebel Ian Poulter was booed at the first tee as the 150th Open Championship got underway at St Andrews.

The 46-year-old is one of 24 players in the field signed up for the controversial Saudi-backed breakaway series and was the first of them to go out in the morning.

Poulter’s response was to almost miss the widest fairway in golf by going wide left across the 18th fairway with his center iron.

His ball landed just yards short of the out-of-bounds line, which borders Links Road on the edge of the court.

However, Poulter recovered well and reached 1 at 355 yards. Par.

Scottie Scheffler: The world number one does not increase the pressure

World number one Scottie Scheffler admits his position at the top of the rankings may not be universally recognised, but insists it’s the least of his worries.

The 26-year-old made his big break by winning the Masters in April, having already usurped Jon Rahm to become number one with three wins in 43 days.

He’s maintained his form with a joint second place finish at the US Open last month but still doesn’t seem to be getting full credit for his accomplishments.

“I guess I’m number one in the rankings – I’m not sure if I’m perceived that way by all of you or whoever, but those aren’t things I really ever think about,” he said ahead of his St Andrews debut for the 150th Open Championship.

“I don’t feel like I’m getting any extra attention. I haven’t read much but I would assume not everyone picks me to win this week, just stuff like that. Open 2022 LIVE: Latest results and Round 1 standings as Justin Rose steps back ahead of Rory McIlroy on course
