McIlroy content after steady first day

Rory McIlroy was pleased with round after he shot a 69 to leave himself three off the lead.

You can look at Tiger Woods' even-par 71 one of two ways -- he missed chances and could have easily shot 4 under or he survived down the stretch when his swing got a little loose.

The wind picked up a wee bit (as they say in Scotland) in the afternoon but never got crazy. Last few groups on the course and only 32 of 156 golfers are under par in round one!

What makes Brooks Koepka such a great major champion? The resolve to grind. 41 on the front nine, 31 on the back nine! The Open at Carnoustie.

Course has gotten tougher over the last hour. Nobody playing now under par. And closing 3 holes have been taking their toll all day #TheOpen

Steven Saunders ESPN UK 

Kevin Kisner is sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard on 5-under, but consider this (via ESPN Stats & Info): In Kisner's three Open appearances, he's shot over par in the second round all three times. And he was at par or better in the first round all three times.

Round 1 Hole Locations for The Open!

Rory McIlroy has 'nasty' emblazoned on the bottom of his shoes here at Carnoustie but he was left quietly content with his opening round 69 at The Open. He spoke afterwards of how he felt his birdie at the 3rd was a personal victory, after being one of a few to opt for the driver. Speaking of his round, he said: " You know, it wasn't pretty off the tee, but I got it done, and I took advantage of some unfortunate bounces. I would have taken 69 to start the day."
