LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England — Adam Scott has tied a course record by shooting a 6-under 64 in the opening round of the British Open.
Taking advantage of perfect conditions at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, the Australian bounced back from a bogey at No. 3 with eight birdies over the next 13 holes. That put him in position to tie the record for lowest score in the Open or any other major (63), or even break the record with one more birdie.
Scott settled for par at the 17th, then took a bogey on the final hole after an errant tee shot into the thick rough. Still, he went to the clubhouse having tied the 64 that Tom Lehman shot at Lytham in 1996.
Paul Lawrie, the 1999 Open champion, posted a 65.
