Two putts for Sharma, and that’s pretty much it for day one. Thanks for reading this blog. Join us again tomorrow morning!

-5: Lamprecht (a), Fleetwood, Grillo
-4: Rozner, Otaegui, Harman
-3: Cink, Clark, Noren, Homa, Sharma, Stewart

20 Jul 202316.10EDT

Shubhankar Sharma makes his way down 18 in fuss-free fashion. He calmly gets back into position by whipping his second to 150 yards, then finds the heart of the green with his approach. He’ll have two putts from 50 feet for par and a wonderful opening round of 68.

20 Jul 202315.59EDT

Shubhankar Sharma has to wait on the 18th tee for an age. The end-of-day play has slowed right up, with the 18th, all out of bounds and deep bunkers, proving troublesome to so many. No wonder he eventually sends his drive into thick nonsense down the left. A wee bit of bother there, as while he’ll definitely have to lay up, the OB on the right is very much in play. The final knockings of day one have been glacial, but the action has been gripping nonetheless.

20 Jul 202315.49EDT

An abysmal end to the 2013 champion Phil Mickelson’s round. A double bogey on 17 – and if that upturned saucer of a green can fox Phil, it can fox anyone, so watch out – followed by an out-of-bounds triple at 18. A highly respectable score turns into a 77 in short order, and at +6, Lefty will need to shoot low tomorrow if he’s to survive the cut.

20 Jul 202315.46EDT

Shubhankar Sharma has a tidy record at the Open Championship … in so much as both of his appearances have ended in ties for 51st. They came at Carnoustie in 2018 and at Portrush a year later. The 26-year-old Indian, a two-time winner on the DP Tour, is promising much more this year, though. Having turned in 34, he’s added birdies at 12 and 15, then got up and down from 80 yards at 16 to save his par. Now he’s negotiated the tricky 17th without fuss, and will take to the 18th tee at -3.

20 Jul 202315.37EDT

Pars for Tyrrell Hatton, Collin Morikawa and Max Homa on 18. The latter’s was achieved via some poor grandstand-dwelling punter’s chin. They’re level par, +2 and -3 respectively.

20 Jul 202315.32EDT

Rory McIlroy speaks to Sky Sports. “I felt like I played OK … missed a couple of putts … started to get the putter going on the back nine, which was nice to see … I could have let the round get away from me but I didn’t … it’s a solid start … it was really good in the end … these bunkers are really tough, it just doesn’t seem to go into the middle of them and you’re always up against the face … I actually got lucky [with his first bunker shot on 18] … it could have gone into a deeper part of my footprint … I might have been there all night so it was great to get away with a five, it was a great putt to end on … I’m right in the golf tournament … I need to shoot a score in the 60s tomorrow and I’ll be right there for the weekend.”

20 Jul 202315.25EDT

Jon Rahm’s par putt shaves the left-hand edge of the cup. A nuclear blast threatens to erupt, but he takes a deep breath, looks to the heavens, and taps in for bogey. An extremely disappointing 74 for the world number three and reigning Masters champion. But it’s a pleasant end to Rory’s day, as he makes his par saver, and signs for a 71 that could have been a whole lot worse. Should he get his game going for the rest of the week, that astonishing up and down could prove so important come Sunday.

20 Jul 202315.19EDT

Rory’s turn. He opts to go out sideways, even though he thought about trying to launch skywards with a view to going straight for the pin. But the safe play doesn’t pay. He hits the side face, and his ball rolls back into one of his footprints. He’s in all sorts of bother now … but finally works a stance, one leg extended into the bunker, one knee perched to the side. He’s like a treble clef in human form. He splashes out to eight feet, which is a preposterous result from where he was. He’ll have a good chance to save his par!

The Open 2023: first round – as it happened (2)

20 Jul 202315.15EDT

For the second time today, Jon Rahm is forced to chip backwards out of a bunker. He splashes out cutely, so much so that the camber nearly gathers the ball back into the sand. But it stops on a flat area and he’ll be chipping four onto the green. This time he doesn’t get too cute, aiming for the heart of the putting surface. He’ll have a look at saving par from 20 feet.

20 Jul 202315.12EDT

Viktor Hovland takes two putts for his par, and ends the day having salvaged a 70. Given how he so nearly sent his second out of bounds, he’ll be so relieved at how his round has panned out, especially having witnessed poor JT’s meltdown. Once they clear the green – Tony Finau shot a two-over 73, by the way – Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm take turns to send their second shots into the bunkers guarding the front left … and both are right up against the face. Some Seve-style magic required here.

The Open 2023: first round – as it happened (3)

20 Jul 202315.08EDT

A massive stroke of good fortune for Viktor Hovland, who nearly sends his second at 18 out of bounds. But his ball squirts over the corner of the right-hand turn, and he takes advantage of his luck by sending his third into the heart of the green. But before he can putt, Justin Thomas suffers a golfer’s worst nightmare: he becomes the recipient of sympathetic applause. Already +7 for his round, and having sent his tee shot out of bounds, he goes from one greenside bunker into another, from where he’s forced to chip out backwards. This is awkward to watch. He ends up with a quadruple-bogey nine – smiling wryly as his final putt stops stubbornly on the lip – and that’s an awful round of 82. He’s +11 and that wry smile doesn’t last long. The poor chap’s face falls as he takes stock: he already knows he’ll be missing the cut in yet another major.

20 Jul 202314.59EDT

A disappointing bogey finish for Keegan Bradley, the result of finding a fairway bunker with his tee shot. He nevertheless ends the day with a very decent 70. Back on 17, Tyrrell Hatton takes two putts for a par that, for a couple of hairy seconds, would have looked extremely unlikely when his tee shot was sailing towards the back of the green and potential oblivion. He remains at level par, while his playing partner Max Homa also pars to stay at -3.

Things had been threatening to unravel for Tyrrell Hatton. Having turned in 33, he bogeyed 10, 11 and 14, and a hack out of rough on 15 led to him inspecting his troublesome wrist gingerly. But he’s just rattled in an unexpected 30-foot birdie effort on 16, and suddenly he’s back to level par and looking a little happier. Doubly so when he slightly overhits his tee shot at 17, his ball threatening to dribble off the back and into a world of trouble, but stopping just in time. He’ll want to get up there and mark it quickly, though, should the wind suddenly decide to start playing silly buggers.

20 Jul 202314.46EDT

Rory and Rahmbo both find the 17th green safely … though McIlroy only just manages to do so. His ball hangs on the front edge of the green, and for a second threatens to topple back down the swale and into the bunker, where monsters be. But the ball behaves and stays put. He can’t make the left-to-right slider from 15 feet for birdie, though getting out of Dodge with par is nothing to be sniffed at. Rahm makes his par too, having left a very makeable straight 12-footer short. They remain at level par and +2 respectively.

20 Jul 202314.35EDT

Max Homa plays the par-five 15th almost perfectly. Bang, bang, chip to four feet … then misses the short birdie putt. He hangs his head as he shuffles off. He remains at -3. Up on 16, a two-putt par for Rory McIlroy, who remains at level par … but a three-putt fiasco for Jon Rahm, who exits the scene fuelled by lug-steam. He’s +2.

20 Jul 202314.27EDT

Rory McIlroy belts a drive down the middle of 16. As he does so, a wag in the crowd yells a very British take on the American mashed-potato routine: “Mushy peas.” It won’t be long before we get to crispy bits, will it. Meanwhile up on the green, birdie for Viktor Hovland, who has set about rebuilding his round in staunch fashion; two over after bogeys at 8 and 10, he’s responded with birdies at 11, 12 and now 16. He’s -1, in red figures for the first time today. An impressive display of mettle, especially as he’d missed a very gettable birdie putt on 15.

20 Jul 202314.20EDT

It’s back to back birdies for Rory McIlroy! He follows up the one on 14 by splashing out of the deep bunker guarding the front of 15 to three feet. Such a delicate shot; he didn’t have much green to play with. In goes the putt, and all of a sudden he’s back to level par and the Rory Spring is back in the Rory Step. Jon Rahm trudges off, however, having taken three to get down from a much more promising position. He remains +1.

20 Jul 202314.16EDT

A brilliant birdie at the last for Brian Harman! He’s out of position down the left, so lobs high over the bunkers and into the heart of the green. A different, but equally sensible, solution to the problem solved by Emiliano Grillo not so long ago. And like Grillo before him, Harman gets his reward for his common sense. He guides in a gentle right-to-left slider from 30 feet, and raises his putter to celebrate his birdie. That’s a 67, the third of the day, and he joins Antonie Rozner and Adrian Otaegui in second place.

-5: Lamprecht -a- (F), Fleetwood (F), Grillo (F)
-4: Rozner (F), Otaegui (F), Harman (F)
-3: Cink (F), Clark (F), Noren (F), Homa (14)

The Open 2023: first round – as it happened (4)

20 Jul 202314.10EDT

Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy both send their drives down the middle of the par-five 15th. Neither make the green with their second shot, Rahm missing harmlessly front right, Rory in a little more bother in a deep bunker guarding the front left. As they mosey on up towards their fate, Max Homa splits the fairway behind them.

20 Jul 202314.04EDT

Max Homa nearly replicates Rory McIlroy’s birdie putt on 14. But his ball shaves the lip. He remains -3.

20 Jul 202313.55EDT

Rory McIlroy has long needed something to re-energise his round … and here it is! His second into 14 isn’t all that, pulled a good 40 feet left of the hole. But he’s pin high, and the birdie putt he’s left with is pretty straight. He confidently walks it in, the crowd erupts, he moves back to +1, and he’s got a couple of par-fives coming up. He could yet salvage something half-decent from what has so far been a distinctly average day’s work!

20 Jul 202313.48EDT

Argentina's Emiliano Grillo shoots 66!

Grillo finds himself out of position to the left of the 18th, so doesn’t go for the flag, tucked behind a bunker on the same side, with his approach. He lands his ball safely on the front-right portion of the green, 50 feet from the flag … then sends a tramliner straight into the cup! That matches the best-of-day 66s by the amateur Christo Lamprecht and local lad Tommy Fleetwood … and here’s a reminder that Argentina already has produced one Open champion at Hoylake, the legendary Roberto De Vicenzo in 1967. What a putt! What a finish! What a leaderboard!

-5: Lamprecht -a- (F), Fleetwood (F), Grillo (F)
-4: Rozner (F), Otaegui (F)
-3: Cink (F), Clark (F), Noren (F), Harman (17), Homa (13)

The Open 2023: first round – as it happened (5)

20 Jul 202313.39EDT

A sour look on Rory’s puss at the par-three 13th. It’s understandable, though. Having hit his tee shot to 30 feet, he looks to have made the long birdie putt, only for it to veer a couple of millimetres to the left at the death and horseshoe out. So unlucky, that deserved better. He has the air of a man convinced he’s been singled out for particular abuse from the Golfing Gods, though he’s had his fair share of good breaks today as well. His current mark of +2 seems fair enough, given how ragged and uncharacteristically uninspired he’s been.

20 Jul 202313.34EDT

Remember that Jon Rahm drive at 12, the one that pinged off someone in the gallery and flew into the bunker, necessitating that backwards chip out? Well, it turns out our man Michael Butler happened to be right next to the supporter who got hit upside the head. He tells the sorry tale via the medium of Twitter …

Rahm’s wayward tee shot on 12 hits the head of a supporter in and pings into a bunker. The man is OK, conscious but with a nasty bang and is seen to by medics. Rahm comes over and hands him a signed glove. “There’s a reason we miss here”, Rahm jokes. “It’s a good angle in” pic.twitter.com/x1agRdkKmF

Awkward second shot for Rahm, who opts to come backward out of the bunker back onto the fairway and sends his third shot to the middle of the green. Can’t save his par though and slips to +1. A bogey for McIlroy as well, he’s now +2. pic.twitter.com/no85HlI6Du

— Michael Butler (@michaelbutler18) July 20, 2023

20 Jul 202313.29EDT

For the second time today, Max Homa cards back-to-back birdies. Having done so at 4 and 5, he repeats the trick at 10 and 11. Some way to follow his first dropped stroke of the day at 9. Meanwhile Emiliano Grillo hits one of the shots of the day at the mind-bending Little Eye, and tidies up from six feet to move to within a shot. For the first time in a wee while, there’s a little bit of movement at the toppermost of the poppermost (well this is Liverpool after all).

-5: Lamprecht -a- (F), Fleetwood (F)
-4: Rozner (F), Otaegui (F), Grillo (17)
-3: Cink (F), Clark (F), Noren (F), Harman (16), Homa (11)

20 Jul 202313.25EDT

Neither Rahm nor McIlroy can save their pars on 12. They’re +1 and +2 respectively. Meanwhile it’s back-to-back bogeys for Tyrrell Hatton, who follows that dropped shot at 10 by putting excitably through the break from short range on 11. Once again the lid threatens to rattle, but he keeps everything in check. He’s back to level par.

20 Jul 202313.22EDT

While we’re on the subject of piping-hot salvoes …

20 Jul 202313.20EDT

According to Rich Beem on Sky, McIlroy has missed the fairway at 12 by 70 yards to the left. He does pretty well to send his second to the apron in front of the green, but doesn’t get particularly close with his third. Meanwhile Rahm is forced to take a big gulp of medicine and chip backwards out of the bunker. He then clips his third into the heart of the green and, left with a 40-footer for par, is doing very well to keep his temper in check right now. I’d pay good money for a Just Stop Oil protestor to rock up at exactly this second with a sack of orange confetti, just to see how the ensuing debate would pan out. The climate would change in Rahm’s noggin, that’s for sure, possibly to a polar-ice-cap-bothering degree.

20 Jul 202313.12EDT

An awful break for Jon Rahm on 12. His drive hits a punter down the right of the hole and rebounds into a fairway bunker, where it settles snugly against a high face. I suppose he can’t complain too much – he did hoick his tee shot towards the gallery, after all – but even so! Meanwhile Rory McIlroy appears to be in the mood to look that gift horse in the mouth: having somehow escaped with par from the previous hole, he now flays another spectacularly wild drive into deep oomska down the left of 12. Trouble ahoy.

The Open 2023: first round – as it happened (7)

20 Jul 202313.09EDT

Yes he can! In it goes, and could that be a momentum shifter for the 2014 champion? McIlroy remains at +1. Bogey for Tyrrell Hatton back on 10, and he briefly threatens to boil over, before his inner angel calms him down. He keeps his counsel, perhaps surmising that he’s still nicely positioned at -1.

20 Jul 202313.04EDT

McIlroy decelerates mid-chip and only just clears the bunker. Not only does the ball avoid dunking into the trap, it lands softly on the shoulder of the bunker and rolls to six feet. Given he’d have done well to hit a properly struck shot to 15 feet, that’s an almighty break. Can he capitalise by rolling in the putt and scrambling an unlikely par?

20 Jul 202313.01EDT

Rory McIlroy is not on his game at all. Wedging in from the centre of the 11th fairway, he sends his ball wide right of the green, leaving himself short-sided and snookered by a bunker. There’s next to no green to play with there, plus his ball’s ended up nestled against some taller grass. Good luck getting that close. He looks extremely uncomfortable right now, as he has done from the get-go.

20 Jul 202312.54EDT

A closing birdie for Adrian Otaegui. The 30-year-old from San Sebastian, a four-time winner on the DP World Tour, posts a fine first round of 67. Tommy Fleetwood and Wyndham Clark apart, there are quite a few surprises on this leaderboard, to say the very least. The singular charm of the Open Championship, right here.

-5: Lamprecht -a- (F), Fleetwood (F)
-4: Rozner (F), Otaegui (F)
-3: Cink (F), Clark (F), Noren (17), Grillo (15), Harman (14)

20 Jul 202312.50EDT

Collin Morikawa completes a front-nine repair job by rolling in a 25-footer on 9 for birdie. The last time we heard from him, he’d made double at 3. Having bounced back with a birdie on 4, the 2021 champion turns in level par. There’s a notable spring in his step again; see also Jon Rahm, who steers in a swinging right-to-left 30-footer on 10 to return to level par as well. But there’s no joy for Rory McIlroy, who misses his birdie effort from half the distance and remains +1.

20 Jul 202312.47EDT

Emiliano Grillo has a strangely binary record at the Open: he either finishes tied for 12th, which he’s done twice (in 2016 and 2021) or misses the cut, which he’s done four times (in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022). The 30-year old Argentinian looks more likely to add to the former tally than then latter right now; he nearly drains a long eagle putt on 15 but makes birdie, his fourth in seven holes. He moves to -3.

20 Jul 202312.37EDT

Tyrrell Hatton is this close to draining a 40-foot birdie putt across 8. He’ll settle for par; having birdied 2 and 5, he’s nicely positioned at -2. He’s alongside Keegan Bradley, another in-form player who represents a good-value punt for this tournament. The 2011 PGA champion adds birdie at 10 to his previous one at 4.

20 Jul 202312.34EDT

McIlroy can’t make his birdie putt, which is always staying high on the right, and he hits the turn having taken 36 strokes. Jon Rahm also pars and turns for home at +1, while Justin Rose bogeys to fall to +3. This group is failing to deliver on its promise. The conditions are a little tougher than the morning, with a slight increase in the breeze … but not so tough that you’d expect such a storied trio to be this undercooked.

20 Jul 202312.24EDT

Rory McIlroy yips a three-foot putt at 8, and that’s his second clumsy bogey of the day. He’s now +1, but responds well by landing his tee shot at 9 pin high, leaving himself a ten-footer to make good. Meanwhile a burst from the back by the veteran Swede Alex Noren, who follows eagle at 15 with birdie at 16 to spring up the standings to -3.

20 Jul 202312.17EDT

With the exception of that ring-a-ding-ding tie-and-cardigan combo at Birkdale in 2017, two-time major champion Justin Thomas has failed to leave any sort of lasting mark on the Open. That doesn’t look like changing any time soon: he’s doubled 7 after finding bother in a greenside bunker and failing to splash out close, and after another dropped stroke at 9, he’s turning in four-over 39. Having already missed the cut at the Masters and the US Open, this is shaping up to be an utterly forgettable majors season for the 2017 and 2022 PGA Championship winner. Top hat and tails tomorrow? He shot 67 while wearing the necktie and cardie, so anything’s worth a try.

The Open 2023: first round – as it happened (8)

20 Jul 202312.08EDT

A three-putt bogey for Jon Rahm at 7. Not what the Masters champion was looking for after an underwhelming run of pars. It’s met with plenty of groans from the gallery, though not as many as the number that react to Phil Mickelson missing a short birdie effort on 6 after hitting one of the shots of the day at the 204-yard par-three to four feet. Lefty remains at -1 after birdie at 4.

20 Jul 202312.02EDT

Three birdies in four holes for Adrian Otaegui. The 30-year-old from the Basque Country has only played in one previous Open, missing the cut at Portrush four years ago. But he’s going along nicely now at -3 after picking up strokes at 12, 13 and 15. His mentor Jose Maria Olazabal – who himself came closest to Open glory at Muirfield in 1992 – will be very proud.

20 Jul 202311.57EDT

Our man Michael Butler is at Hoylake. Here’s his take on the potential of the 17th hole as the stage for widespread carnage later in the week.

Little Eye foresees big danger for the world’s best in the Open at HoylakeRead more

20 Jul 202311.52EDT

Addendum. I can’t in all good conscience post that without putting up the proper stuff.

20 Jul 202311.50EDT

Rory McIlroy seriously underhits his putt on 6. So much so that it’s still his turn afterwards. He limits the damage to mild embarrassment, tidying up from six feet to remain at level par. “To keep the golf video thread going, try Feel the Pain’ from the mighty Dinosaur Jr,” writes Dominic Maher.

Yeah, not bad. Though everyone knows they nicked the idea from Cannon and Ball.

20 Jul 202311.45EDT

Back-to-back birdies for Max Homa. Big putts on 4 and 5, and it’s about time the late-blooming Californian made a mark in a major. He’s done nothing of note in any of them, his best result being a tie for 13th in last year’s PGA. But he’s won twice already on the PGA Tour this season, at the Fortinet Championship and the Farmers Insurance Open, and he tied for 12th at the Scottish Open last week. Could this week bring his first top-ten finish in a major at least? He’s -2 in short order.

20 Jul 202311.39EDT

Rory follows his disappointing par by finding the dance-floor on the par-three 6th … but he’s a long way from the hole. It’s just ever-so-slightly flat for the 2014 champion at the minute. That could soon change if he rakes in the uphill 50-footer he’s left with. Meanwhile up on 10, bogey for Brian Harman, who drops back to -2.

20 Jul 202311.35EDT

Yes, so about Rory and those cold Open starts. Having carelessly handed back his slightly fortuitous early bogey on 4, he now sends his approach at 5 way right, and he’s in thick rough, short-sided and behind a bunker. He very nearly gets away with it, thanks to an outrageous whip over the trap to ten feet, the best he could do, but the birdie putt shaves the hole. Just a par. We’ve been here a few times before. Plenty of time to arrest the trend, with not too much damage done, but he isn’t exactly exuding confidence at the minute. Might sound silly at such an early stage, but the next hour or so could be pretty pivotal in his latest hunt for major number six. A potentially mood shaping par-three coming up!

20 Jul 202311.25EDT

Birdie for Antoine Rozner at 18! Up and down from greenside sand, and the 30-year-old from Paris scribbles his name at the bottom of a fine 67. Meanwhile the diminutive lefty Brian Harman hits the turn in 32 strokes after birdies at 5, 6 and 9. You’d have got a good price for some of the names on this leaderboard this time yesterday …

-5: Lamprecht -a- (F), Fleetwood (F)
-4: Rozner (F)
-3: Cink (F), Clark (F), Harman (9)
-2: Jordan (F), Spieth (F), Kim (F), Otaegui (14), Niemann (6)

20 Jul 202311.17EDT

Birdie for Tyrrell Hatton at 2. He’s currently -1 through 3. Meanwhile Alexander Bjork drops a stroke at 12 to slip back to -2. Not a great deal going on right now, which may explain why Sky Sports have cut to a lengthy post-round interview with Stewart ‘Drippy Faucet’ Cink. Any old excuse …

20 Jul 202311.07EDT

Collin Morikawa bounces back from that opening bogey with birdie at 2 … only to make a double at 3 after sending his second shot out of bounds. He’s +2. Meanwhile up on 4, a dropped shot for Rory McIlroy, who walks off looking particularly pained having taken an iron off the tee for safety. Facing a longer shot in, he found greenside sand, and the die was cast. Was that decision to take an iron off the tee the result of those wayward drives at 1 and 2? Those shots of concern on the driving range? Classic dramatic foreshadowing.

20 Jul 202311.01EDT

It’s already been a good sporting year for Antoine Rozner. The 30-year-old Parisian, who went to college at the University of Missouri, has seen his beloved Kansas City Chiefs win the Super Bowl … and bagged himself a DP World Tour victory at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius. But could 2023 get even better for him? Rozner has only played in one Open previously, last year’s 150th birthday event at St Andrews, where a tie for 59th wasn’t a bad result at all. Now, after birdie at 16 and solid par at the tricky 17th, he’s coming up 18 sitting at -3. A par will give him an opening round of 68.

20 Jul 202310.48EDT

A positive end to an otherwise underwhelming opening round by Bryson DeChambeau. The 2020 US Open champion birdied the last, but only for a three-over 74. An extremely sorry conclusion to Rickie Fowler’s round, however. Standing on the 18th tee, the Californian, who came joint-second here in 2014, was comfortably placed at -2. He then crashed his drive down the fairway … from where he sent his next two strokes out of bounds down the right. Astonishing, even if the OB line is just a couple of paces into the rough. A triple-bogey eight, and he signs for a 72. Expect the leaders on Sunday afternoon to be aiming well left. He’s +1.

20 Jul 202310.40EDT

Scrub that about Rory and his slow starts! He’s sent his tee shot at 2 so far right that he gets a free drop because a grandstand is in the way. He takes advantage of that break to wedge from 116 yards to four feet, then makes his birdie … but only just, the ball looping the loop before dropping. He has the good grace to look extremely relieved. His soda farl landed jam side up a couple of times there. A super-early sign that the Golfing Gods are looking down kindly on him and this could be his week? OK, fair enough, let’s not get silly with 70 holes still to navigate. He’s -1.

-5: Lamprecht -a- (F), Fleetwood (F)
-3: Cink (F), Clark (F), Bjork (11)
