Thursday's Birdies And Bogeys

July 19, 2012
Who were the winners and losers on Thursday of the Open Championship? Let's take a closer look with with our first round edition of birdies and bogeys.
Adam Scott

Birdie: Adam Scott

Playing in his 46th career major championship, the Australian is in the best position to win his first after the opening round. His 64 not only gave him a one-shot lead, but also tied the course record at Royal Lytham & St Annes. Earlier this year, Scott said he planned to play less so he'd be more fresh when it mattered most. That strategy seems to be paying off, as Scott has finished T-8 and T-15 in the season's first two majors.
