HOYLAKE, England -- Doing the math on the first round at Royal Liverpool:
0: Number of Beatles that Bubba Watson is able to identify, even if you spot him John, Paul and George.
1: Clubs snapped by Henrik Stenson. (In the September issue of Golf Digest, Stenson tells Guy Yocom, "I've lost count of how many drivers, fairway woods and wedges I've murdered.")
2: Drivers hit by Matteo Manassero in a five-under-par 67.
3: Consecutive birdies (11 through 13) by Tiger Woods (69).
4:11 (a.m.): When David Howell, in the first group, woke up for his 6:25 a.m. tee time. Said Robert Karlsson, who shot a 69 in that group with Howell (72) and David Duval (73): "The stands were full. I was very impressed. I would not have been there."
7: Birdies by both Brooks Koepka (68) and Matteo Manassero (67).
8: Combined under-par total by true bros Edoardo and Francesco Molinari, both with 68s.
9: Score that Henrik Stenson made at the 16th hole at Hoylake in the third round of the 2006 Open. (No report available on any broken clubs.)
13 (tie): Best Open finish by Matteo Manassero, when he was a 16-year-old amateur at Turnberry in 2009, playing with Tom Watson, then 59.
25: Birdies for the week by Chris DiMarco to lead the field in the 2006 Open at Hoylake.
76: Score by Sir Nick Faldo (or, as Dan Jenkins would say, "Low Knight in the field.")
78: Score by local factory worker John Singleton. "It's the Open, isn't it?" Singleton said. "And it's home as well. So it's something special, and I can keep that one with me for the rest of my life."
