LYTHAM, England (AP) -- 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.
Defending champion: 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 the first round.
Quotable: ''He could have headed it the other way. It would have been on the fairway.'' - McIlroy.
