While we were all grabbing a cup of coffee and waking up, Adam Scott had already staked his claim to the Open Championship.
Scott, who had shot 75 and 76 through the first round of his last two major tournaments, took aim at the opening-round record 62.
And those on the front leaderboard included Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson and Tiger Woods. I guess the threat of 205 bunkers that surrounded Lytham did not make many golfers flinch.
That's the beauty of the Open Championship.
The second round, like the first round, will have the same pairings with many interesting groupings to watch. Here are some we can look at with great interest.
