The leaderboard has him making a 13. Maybe Faldo double counted a penalty or two? Or the people running the leaderboard miscounted.

Yeah I'm watching on my phone at work. They were covering someone else and Faldo was like "I've got someone in my ear telling me duval just made a 15 on 7".

Rory simply cannot play under pressure. He’s done, completely lost it. So no more Rory being a favorite to win.

Shame for Rory on the first hole.  An 8 is not the way to start!

He still has a chance if he can get to +1 or even +2 for his first round - but it's uphill now.

You're kidding, right?  Can't play under pressure???

He's won 4 majors.

Looks like Rory just birdied No.9 to get back to +3.

Let's not plan his funeral just yet.

I’m going to pick Rose for the win. He is a machine with the driver, plus his iron play is really good.

I don't think driver is such an important club around Port Rush.

There will be lots of 3w and irons from the tee.  Just finding the fairway in good position is the key. The rough looks horrible.

Yep - if he can go -2 for the back 9 he's in business, but that is a big ask on the back 9.

Looks like the wind is picking up for the late starters.  I'd say -4 could lead after day 1.

A lot of big names struggling thus far. McIkroy, Scott, Molinari, Schauffele, Woodland all having a tough time.

Saw something that says that Duval's blow up on 7 was related to playing the wrong ball. 

They got him at a 13 for No. 7 now and +14 on the day.

Yes you’re correct. And that’s over. He was a great flash in the pan though. Total flop in Major’s pressure.

He's already won 2 tournaments this year including The Players 

So he's still winning and has won 4 majors.

Flash in the pan, lol.

I think you're a little over excited about the Masters collapse.

Man, I'd love to see Jordan grab his first win in two (!) years. Honestly though, The Open is my favorite to watch. So different than all other tournaments we see during the year. Here's to sitting on the couch and enjoying the next four days of golf.
