Osthausen has finished as a runner up six times in majors, since he won at saint andrews in 2010, but he’s alone on top after shooting a 6 under 64. jordan spieth is one off. The lead at 5 under in wad, was one of the most exciting developments on thursday or three opens in four years since spieth’s epic win royal berkdale and it’s possible that the success of the last four months, eight top 10 finishes in 14, starts a win at The valero texas, open in 83 at the masters, has been building to another major win for the former number one player in the world. Brian harman is tied with spieth, followed by a five player group at four under highlighted by webb simpson, who was one of the few players to really go low in the afternoon wave with his 5 birdie 1 bogey round of 66. simpson will be one of the Few players, at the top of the leaderboard in the morning wave on friday, setting him up to catch ostausen or push the lead even deeper into red numbers in total, 47 golfers finished under par and 18 of those are within three strokes of the lead.

The round got started steady with seven straight pars before osthouse and hit a couple hot streaks coming in starting with three straight birdies making the turn. Then three birdies in four holes between no 13 and number 16 for a bogey free 64. in terms of storylines he’s among the most interesting potential winners. However, before we even talk about finishing as a runner up for a third straight major, let alone winning one, he must maintain his position on the leaderboard t2 jordan spieth brian harmon, minus 5. spieth plotted his way around royal saint george’s, with confidence bouncing back an early Bogey with a statement response of four straight birdies on the front: nine it’s, exactly what you want to see from a former champion who seems to have his game moving in the right direction. Harman did the reverse luis carting four birdies in his first five holes before leveling out a little over the course of the round. It’S still a great start for a player who has missed the cut in his last four open championship, starts t4 webb simpson, stuart sink mackenzie hughes, dylan friday, benjamin herbert 4.

The year of sync continues: sync has already won twice this year and now he’s starting his 22nd appearance at the open. Where you may remember, he was a winner over tom watson in 2009, at turnberry with a 66 that puts him two strokes off the lead. Everyone from this group, except for simpson, played early on thursday, so they’ll have to wait until friday afternoon to begin defending their spots. At the top t9 justin rose colin morikawa, tommy, fleetwood, scottie scheffler, danny willett and five others 3. A runner up to reigning champion shane lowry in 2019.. Fleetwood stands to gain a ton from a strong showing here at royal saint george’s. His finishes have been backsliding. A little in 2021 and suddenly a player who ranked as high as number 10 in the world prior to the shutdown enters this weekend at number: 35 t 19, dustin johnson, sergio garcia, francesco molinari and 10 others 2. There were a couple experts here at cbs sports who wrote earlier this week that dj was the star that definitely wouldn’t win. I was one of those dummies and even though winning requires more work, as he sits four strokes back after 18 holes. There was enough solid play from johnson to change my expectations for this tournament, dj sputtered, two holes and carded back to back bogeys on number eight and number nine, but he also had four birdies and plus value ball, striking on approach shots still a lot of work To win but worth keeping an eye on considering the form he brought into this week.

T 33 brooks kepka 1. It wasn’t a great day on the greens for kepca, but he managed to roll in a couple birdies and finish under par. If you’re. Looking for someone who could possibly charge back from five strokes down after 18, holes it’s probably brooks so. This is where i draw the line for real contention to win. Other notables in this spot will zolotaurus xander, shafley and ricky fowler t 49 rory mcilroy e a disappointing round from the start. Mcilroy was fighting his way all through the afternoon, salvaging this round with two birdies and no bogeys on the final six holes. T 73 bryson deschambeau, plus one the comments about his driver after the round, will overshadow that deshambo still found enough moments to take advantage of the course to finish close to even par his driving. Accuracy was indeed bad, but he also had four birdies on the round. T 73 john rahm, plus one the betting favorite to win coming into the week, had fans tearing up their tickets after a first round 71.
