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:


McIlroy goes back to back for birdies!

McIlroy’s birdie putt might be about six to seven feet away, but it’s a tricky putt down the hill with an easy right-to-left motion. Carefully set his way and into the heart of the hole!

Rory goes to -3 – three birdies through his first six holes. Sublimate.

He’s not the only Brit doing well Bob MacIntyre finds another birdie on the 12th and he’s now at -4! The Scot flies


Kim pushes one back

Kim Joo-hyung has been quietly going about his business since he switched to -4 at the turn. Five straight pars for the Korean star, but now he’s caught a birdie!

Right in front of the bunker on the 15th, a bit off the green, but it’s a slow left-to-right putt and he steers it into the hole. One back from the lead.


McIlroy goes pin hunting

The flag on the 6th is up front on the left, slightly hidden, but after his booming ride, Rory McIlroy goes in pursuit.

And he finds it! Nice flight on his wedge, jumps back and leaves him about two meters for a birdie to go to -3. Rory rolls this morning folks


McIlroy cleans up his birdie

McIlroy finishes well on the 5th – he was pushed in from a few yards to go to -2. So far he’s looking good. A drive on the 6th fairway also crunches.


Young goes to -6

Cameron Young actually sinks his birdie putt on the 11th off that stunning tee shot and he now has a two shot lead at -6. This turns into a spectacular lap.


VIDEO: McIlroy’s unfortunate jump

A pounding drive right down the middle of the fairway by Rory McIlroy on the par 5 5th, despite his ball rattling off an object in the middle. His second shot runs up and stops short of the green, but a beautiful chip now gives him a great view of the yardage.


Leaderboard update

This is how we currently look at the top. Cameron Young has another birdie look at 11 after a nice tee shot short into the par 3. He would go to -6 if he can hole it.

-4: B Brown (a) (F), J Kim, C Smith, B Kennedy;

-3: Lee M (F), Kitayama K, DeChambeau B, MacIntyre R, Horschel B;


A Tale of Two Camerons

Cameron Young -5 (10); Cameron Smith -4 (12)

The two Camerons at the top of the leaderboard have had opposing successes with birdie putts in quick succession. Cameron Young is agonizingly close to moving to -6 as he plays the 10th beautifully, but his 10-foot play shaves the edge. Just a par to stay at -5.

Cameron Young recovers in style from his dropped shot at 11 by immediately retrieving it at 12. He’s at -4, just one shot behind his comrade Cam.


Bryson punches away

Bryson DeChambeau -3 (12)

Long haul, St Andrews is a course that can be overwhelming, but the firm fairways, undulating surfaces and hidden pins mean it’s not that easy.

Bryson DeChambeau is a man who loves to overwhelm courses and although he made a bogey on the 2nd he has been hooked ever since. The birdies at 5, 6 and 7 were now added at 12 where he drove the green and hot close enough with his eagle attempt to score a birdie.

Robert MacIntyre, Scotland’s big hope also finds another birdie this week, joining Bryson at -3 and sinking one at 10.


Lowry has a disaster

Shane Lowry was appreciated by many this week but he got off to a dismal start. Actually bleak.

On the 2nd hole, he double-bogeyed 6 after going right on his tee shot and then needed a drop, while also bogeying 4 after finding a green bunker and not pacing. Jamie Donaldson is currently the only man on the court with a worse score than Lowry at +5…

The 4th hole also causes problems Victor Howland when he is forced to come out sideways from a bunker but gets away with a bogey and is still at -1 after his previous two birdies. He takes that. The open leaderboard, live scoring and first round leaderboard
