Rory McIlroy takes early clubhouse lead with 6-under 66

Rory McIlroy got off to a dream start Thursday in the first round of the Open Championship.

The two-time major winner fired a bogey-free, 6-under 66 to take the early clubhouse lead at Royal Liverpool.

McIlroy is looking for his first major win since the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island and his first win on the PGA Tour since the 2012 BMW Championship. He has six top-10 finishes in 10 PGA Tour starts this season, highlighted by a runner-up showing at the Honda Classic.

Tiger Woods off to solid start with 3-under 69

All eyes were on Tiger Woods at Royal Liverpool as the Open Championship teed off on Thursday.

Pain-free in his return from back surgery, Woods — playing in his first major championship of the season and just his third competitive round since March — got off to a bumpy, bogey-bogey start at the course he overpowered in 2006 when he won the Open for a third time.

It didn’t look good early on for the man trying to snag major victory No. 15 and his first since the 2008 U.S. Open.

The 64-year-old — a runner-up to Stewart Cink at the age of 59 in 2009 at Turnberry — in a round that included four birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.
