Nice touch at this year's Open Championship. Behind the green at the 18th hole, a tribute to "The King" Arnold Palmer. Royal Birkdale is the course where Palmer won his first (of two) Open Championship in 1961.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

That's an opening-round 5-under 65 for Jordan Spieth, whose past history shows he plays very well with the lead.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

Stuart Manley may have had trials with Manchester United and played against Michael Owen and Craig Bellamy as a youngster, but the 38-year-old told reporters golf was the right choice after he made his Open Championship debut and was an early first-round clubhouse leader. "I loved golf. I didn't really like football. It just got too pressurized," the Welshman said after posting a 2-under 68 with an eagle and birdie to close. "I just thought post a decent score, give myself tomorrow for making the cut and have a good weekend. I didn't really dream I'd be sitting here."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Charley Hoffman eagles the opening hole. He never even saw it. Just standing around with his hands in his pockets and 2-under par already.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

Branden Grace is eyeing his best finish at The Open after completing the first round at even par. He finished with a bogey to leave Royal Birkdale a touch frustrated, but remained optimistic that he could better his T20 placing of two years ago. "I'm feeling my game is going in the right direction again and starting to feel comfortable on the fairways and greens," Grace said. "I would like to think I could be in contention come Sunday and have my sights on the top 10. It's tough out there, it's a grind. It's never nice to finish that way but it's still a good day."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Players to win U.S. Open and The Open in same year: Jones (twice) Sarazen Hogan Trevino Watson Woods Brooks Koepka is tied for the lead.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Ian Poulter is tie for the lead early in round 1 of The Open Championship. One reason is a warm happy putter. The putter cover keeping it toasty matches Luke Poulter's (Ian's son) tartan pants! A family that matches together... wins together.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Round 1 Hole Locations for the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale! Much lower temperatures and higher winds speeds are negating the softer greens which is why no one is going crazy low Thursday.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Just walked back-nine with Ian Poulter. He strutted. He swaggered. And he hit a bunch of really solid shots. Tied for lead with 3-under 67.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

One of the reasons players are raving about The Open Championship golf course (Royal Birkdale) is the way each hole is framed. Large dunes separate each hole. This pic is from the back of 16 green. Players on the 17th tee are almost oblivious to any other holes on the course except when they hear a distant roar from the crowd elsewhere on the course.

Bob Harig @BobHarig

Jordan is the player to get to -3 at #TheOpen having shot 31 over the first 9. Has not broken pat in 1st rd of a major since '16 Masters

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jordan Spieth posts a front-nine 31 and grabs the early lead at 3-under. This is his first start since holing that bunker shot to win in CT.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

There's a stacked leaderboard already here at The Open Championship, as Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and Ian Poulter are among the early leaders. Then there's Stuart Manley. The 38-year-old Welshman owns just one professional victory (2013 Finnish Open on the Challenge Tour) and has missed the cut in nine of his last 10 starts, but finished eagle-birdie today to post a 2-under 68 -- the first under-par round of the week.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Playing in his last Open because he has reached the age of 60, Mark O'Meara was granted the honor of teeing off first. It turned out to be a horror. O'Meara, the 1998 champ at Royal Birkdale, sailed his first tee shot out of bounds in driving rain and ended up shooting 81. "My name is on my golf bag, I've won the Open Championship, I'm in the Hall of Fame, when you hit one straight right off the first tee out of bounds. . . my day was toast after that first tee shot. But I still had to play.'' O'Meara made an 8 on the hole and shot 43 for the first 9 holes. "At one point I felt like I was going to shoot 90 out there,'' he said. "You still play for your pride.''

Wednesday night at a restaurant in Liverpool, Andrew "Beef" Johnston (center in the Pittsburgh Pirates cap) met up with his four golden ticket recipients. They're showing off some of the swag they collected along with free airfare, accommodation, transportation, and tix for all four rounds of The Open for each of them and a guest courtesy of Beef and his sponsor Arby's.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

Soccer players are frequently golf fans and keen amateurs and former Liverpool and England defender Jamie Carragher, who lives not too far away, is mixing with the Royal Birkdale crowd on Thursday.

Leo Spall UK Correspondent 

American Justin Thomas has attracted a few murmurs in the crowd because he's wearing a tie. Compared to some of the more flamboyant clothing players have worn over the years, he looks very dapper.

Steven Saunders ESPN UK 

Huge smile from Tommy Fleetwood as he makes his way on to the first tee to a rapturous reception. The local favourite is clearly comfortable with the huge backing he is receiving.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Ian Poulter might win this week, then run all the way to France and spend the next 15 months waiting for the Ryder Cup.
