A walk in the park for Scott

First-round 64 in calm conditions
Adam Scott of Australia listened to a pep talk from his caddie and then posted a 64 on Thursday in the first round of the British Open. He leads by one stroke at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.
Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium was one frustrating missed putt away from the lead Thursday at the British Open. He shot 65.
Paul Lawrie of Scotland managed the rough on the seventh fairway Thursday, finishing one shot behind first-round leader Adam Scott.

British Open

LYTHAM, England – A quick look at Thursday’s opening round of the British Open golf championship at 7,086, par-70 Royal Lytham & St. Annes.
Leading: Aussie Adam Scott at a course record-tying 6 under.
Pursuing: Former major winners Paul Lawrie (British Open), Zach Johnson (Masters) and big-hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts at 5 under.
Defending Champ: Darren Clarke, who shot 76.
Where’s Tiger?: Woods is lurking at 3 under, along with a half-dozen other golfers.
Bouncing Back: Rory McIlroy birdied two of the last three holes and climbed back to 3 under after his tee shot on No. 15 hit a spectator in the head, ricocheted out of bounds and resulted in a double-bogey.
Notable: For the first time since 1998 at Royal Birkdale, no golfer shot 80 or higher in Round 1.
Quotable: “He could have headed it the other way. It would have been on the fairway,” McIlroy said.
Key Pairings (all times Mountain): 6:43 a.m. – Adam Scott, Alan Dunbar (amateur), Matt Kuchar; 8:10 a.m. – Darren Clarke, Ernie Els, Zach Johnson; 8:43 a.m. – Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose.
Television (all times Mountain): 2:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., ESPN.
