Seven notable first-round stats that indicate how the Open Championship might unfold Friday, provided by Golf World contributing writer Brett Avery, who compiles the Rank and File statistical sections for the magazine's coverage of the major championships and other significant events.

--Scott bogeyed the 18th to miss out on the first 62 in major history (or the 26th round of 63, depending on one's expectation of his finish).

--Zach Johnson (65/T-2) bogeyed the 17th to fumble a share of the lead the week after winning a playoff at the John Deere Classic on the PGA Tour.

--Graeme McDowell (67/T-6) bogeyed the 15th and 18th.

--Rory McIlroy (67/T-6) missed one of only three fairways at the 15th, conking a spectator in the head with his errant drive and seeing the ball carom out-of-bounds en route to a double.

--Paul Casey (72/T-80) was three under on the 13th tee but finished bogey-par-double-birdie-double-bogey.

--Lee Westwood (73/T-99) made four bogeys coming home

--Ryo Ishikawa stood one under on the 14th tee but reeled off five bogeys for 74/T-115.
