Utah's Tony Finau tied for second early at British Open

McIlroy replied: 'I like Butch a lot but I would definitely say I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum to someone who's mechanical.

"The way I've been playing coming in, it hasn't really even been on my mind, but I knew if I played well here it would be a great opportunity to move up the list", added Kisner, who is now 19th in the qualifying standings.

Finau fell to 1-under with a bogey at No. 12, but then ran off three straight birdies at the next three holes, sinking a 12-footer at the par-3 13th hole, two-putting the par-5 14th and rolling in a 25-footer at No. 15.

The 18th has been called the scariest on The Open rota and is arguably the toughest finishing stretch in all championship golf.

Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm powered their way to 69s, going for the green on short par 4s.

With conditions already looking brighter we could see one or two more scores to rival his superb 65.

According to KT Tape's website, the tape is used to relieve pain, provide support where needed and will stay in place through "multiple demanding workouts for up to seven days (and) in the harshest conditions including daily showers, humidity, cold, even in the pool".

'It's easy to make comments when you don't know what's happening.

Though the draw here won't be a significant factor - or at least not like in recent years, with a wide range in scores from morning to afternoon - it's clear that Woods (in game 47 of 52) encountered the most hard of the conditions Thursday, with the wind gusting to 20 miles per hour and the fairways running even faster after another sun-splashed afternoon. The water was shallow enough for the former Masters champion to smash through a ball rock and water to get the club on the ball and escape without further damage.

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., opened at 2 over. He last played The Open in 2015 and missed the cut.

"I've just always enjoyed - this is how the game should be played", he said.

"If I just clean up those two holes and play them the way I'm supposed to play them with 8-iron in my hand, I think I'd probably have the best round in the afternoon wave. No one's going to argue with him - he did it like at Hoylake, and he was able to win there". Despite some of the similarities in firmness, Woods said that Carnoustie presents a different challenge off the tee. Apparently he didn't need the added distance, not with his 6-iron traveling 240 yards. "I kind of let the golf course come to me".
