British Open In Photos: Round 1 at Royal Portrush

By

Play is underway at the British Open Thursday at the Royal Portrush Dunluce links course in Northern Ireland.

Shane Lowry led after morning play at 4-under and Sergio Garcia was part of a group at 3-under.

Meanwhile, disaster struck for fan and batting favorite Rory McIlroy on the 1st hole of the tournament. McIlroy, who once shot a 61 on this course at age 16, stumbled his way to a quadruple-bogey on the par-4 hole. Phil Mickelson fizzled despite his recent weight loss. And 3000-1 shot David Duval put up a 13 on the par-5 7th hole.
