  4. 'Brain fart' costs Spieth

    Jordan Spieth

    At one stage today Jordan Spieth was looking very ominous. He was three under par going down the 15th but dropped four shots in the last four holes to fall back.

    The trouble started with a double bogey on 15 and the American said the dropped shots came after a "brain fart" on the hole.

    "The problem was on the second shot," Spieth said.

    "I should have hit enough club to reach the front of the green, and even if it goes 20 yards over the green, it's an easy up and down.

    "That's what I would consider as a significant advantage for me, recognising where the misses are, and I just had a brain fart and I missed it into the only pot bunker where I could actually get in trouble, and it plugged deep into it.

    "It was a really, really poor decision on the second shot and that cost me."

    Alongside Spieth on one over is his playing partner Justin Rose.

  5. Strong start for McIlroy

    Rory McIlroy had a scrappy round. He ventured into the long grass off the tee and missed some putts but in the end has to be happy with his two under round.

    The Northern Irishman is just three off the lead as he bids to end his wait for a major.

    Alongside him at two under are Englishmen Danny Willett and Matthew Southgate.

  6. 'The round could have been better'

    Tiger Woods, who grinded out an impressive opening 71 to sit level par, has just told Sky Sports: "It's playing tricky and I thought I played it the right way for me. The round certainly could have been a lot better than it came out."

  7. Solid start for Woods

    Woods level (18)

    Tiger Woods was one of the latest starters and began his round excellently.

    He was two under at the turn, the first time he has been under par through nine holes at a major for five years.

    As conditions got more difficult he had to battle late on but still managed a decent level-par 71 to finish five off the lead.

  8. Post update

    Just the four groups left on the course.

    Mexico's Abraham Ancer -1 playing the last is the best of the late finishers.

  9. Kisner leads the way

    Kisner -5 (18)

    So it's a surprise name at the top of the leaderboard as we head into the final stages of day one at the Open.

    The 34-year-old American is out on his own at five under par, one shot clear of Erik van Rooyen, Tony Finau and Zander Lombard.

  10. 'A wide open Open'

    Iain Carter

    BBC Sport golf correspondent at Carnoustie

    It is still very early days. The names on the top of the leaderboard played in the morning, but let's see how they do in the afternoon tomorrow. It is still very early days, but it does show the strength of depth in the field and these conditions make it a wide open Open.

    Peter Scrivener

    BBC Sport at Carnoustie

    A disappointing end for Russell Knox, a solid one for Woods after a tricky few holes coming in. And with that the stands begin to empty out. Time to retire and consider the day’s play before returning tomorrow to do it all again.

  12. Latest leaderboard

    -5 Kisner (F)

    A very good score for Tiger Woods. He had a sigh and shows what a hard round he has had. He looks very much in control of himself. He looks sharp, he is looking good.

  14. Par on 18th for Woods

    T Woods level R Knox +2 H Matsuyama +4 (18)

    Tiger Woods finishes off with his par.

    A very tidy round of 71 for the American. He'll go to bed five shots off the lead held by his compatriot Kevin Kisner.

    Two over is a very good score for Russel Knox this afternoon. If he comes out tomorrow morning with a 68 he is right back in it.

  16. Post update

    T Woods level R Knox +2 H Matsuyama +4 (18)

    Ooooof. A disappointing finish from Scot Russell Knox. He misses from just a couple of feet.

    A bogey on the last leaves him at two over.

  17. Post update

    T Woods level R Knox +1 H Matsuyama +4 (17)

    Close but slightly off line. Tiger Woods marks the ball but I'll eat my golf club if he misses from there. It'll be a even-par-71 for Tiger.

    Russell Knox's birdie putt goes just beyond the flag. He'll have a par putt for one over.

  18. Post update

    T Woods level R Knox +1 H Matsuyama +4 (17)

    Left to right. Slightly up hill...

  19. Post update

    T Woods level R Knox +1 H Matsuyama +4 (17)

    Lovely from Matsuyama. He chips right up to the flag. He ends on four over.

    Tiger will be next. Hole this and he'll finish in the red...

    Tiger is going to come out tomorrow morning and shoot a low one, I have a feeling.
