Kevin Kisner shoots 66 to take first-round lead at British Open

He tied for 10th place in the Masters and was fifth in the U.S. Open. The company saw a nice bump when Tom Brady wore KT Tape on his right hand for this past year's AFC Championship Game and when Mirai Nagasu became the first woman to land a triple axel at the 2018 Olympics while wearing the tape, he said.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth was not a model of accuracy, and it finally caught up with the Texan as he dropped four shots in the final four holes for a 72.

Tiger Woods' much-anticipated return to the British Open after a two-year hiatus sparkled early on before ending in a level-par 71 at Carnoustie on Thursday. Woods has a chance to qualify for his first WGC event of the season with a high finish at Carnoustie.

"It was playing as easy as it was going to play this whole week this morning, no wind at all, so you had to go out and take advantage of it", said world number 144 van Rooyen.

"But it grabbed the shaft and smothered it, and I was very, very fortunate that it got far enough down there where I had a full wedge into the green". Sergio's bogeys early on both the front and back nine - the 1st, 3rd, 10th, 11th and 12th holes - were the story of his round as his six bogeys were only offset by two birdies.

DJ wasn't as fortunate and made a awful triple-bogey on the 18th hole; he's now five-over and needs a solid performance on Friday to see the weekend.

Woods said that the neck issue was not a big deal, that "as I got warmed up I felt all right". When you can hit a lot of fairways out here, that's a big key. On-course leaderboards were stagnant the entire afternoon because just a small handful of players in the afternoon wave managed under-par rounds and none came close to matching Kisner's 66 in the 7:52 a.m. pairing.

As if on cue, Woods' game started looking more familiar, too.

Johnson holed a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th and had a one-shot lead over Tommy Fleetwood at the midway point of the second round.

"I can't lie, if I could pick one tournament in my life to win, it would be the Open", he said. Facing a circus-type putt at No. 5 from well off and under the green, he rolled a lengthy uphill putt inches from the cup for a tap-in par. "It's a great feeling when those putts are going in".

The 42-year-old asked the marshals to move the fans back as he attempted an ambitious second rather than pitch back to the fairway with his ball significantly above his feet, and the move backfired. Finau said he only hit drive "four or five" times and used his 3, 4 and 5-irons off the tee.

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

In 2014 McIlroy was the victor of the Claret Jug at a sun-soaked Hoylake, but he refused to let the conditions get to him on Friday in his chase for a fifth major title and first for four years.
