Talking of nice looking cards...check out Dustin Johnson. Five pars, three birdies then finishes off his opening 9 with two more birdies. Stunning effort and the American cruises onto -4 and piggybacks Jimenez at the top of the leaderboard.
Just an incredible pic coming up on how to deal with a multi-sport viewing kinda day....if anybody can beat this I'd like to know.
OUCH. It's getting hot at the top as Rafa Cabrera-Bello grabs another bit of red on his card and he strolls onto -4.
Colourful leaderboard. Two Spanish flags at the top followed by five stars and stripes...England's Oliver Fisher on -1 at 8th spot after his round of 70.
Ian Poulter has definitely settled down after that bogey at the first. Five pars and two birdies and he's back on the right side of level par at -1.
A tough day at the office. Anybody else got their feet up in the boardroom? Anybody overseas following the action? I'd love to hear from you. COMMENTS or @msnsport
No pars but plenty of birdies AND bogeys. And it belongs to Justin Rose who fluffs a putt at the ninth and he's on +2 after 7 pars and two bogeys in his opening nine.
Phil Mickelson trundling along very nicely with five pars and two birdies to be on -2 and two off the pace.
Another doff of the cap after securing a bum twizzler for Jimenez and he stays on -4 and looking very nicely after 15.
Zap that Zach. Mr Johnson (yep another one) makes it a birdie straight after the eagle. The boy is flying and he joins the three boys at the top with -4.
WOW....Zach has gone crazy while his hunters have dropped off the gas. Zach Johnson has gone eagle, birdie, birdie and is now on -5. Jimenez, Cabrera-Bello and Dustin Johnson have all bogeyed to slip back to -3.
Happy days for the defending champion. Ernie Els rolls in another birdie - second in three - and he's back to level par after 11.
DISASTER for Zach Johnson. It's just a par for the American at the 8th after that pair of birdies and eagle. He stays on -5 and leader by two
Time for some English fireworks by Steven Tiley. Two pars and three birdies after five holes. Sizzling start for the 30-year-old.
A reminder for players probably nibbling on their haggis sandwiches awaiting to go out this afternoon. Lee Westwood off at 1401), Adam Scott and Luke Donald (1412), while a mouth-watering duo Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell off at 1445 (all times BST)
Miguel Angel Jiminez finishes up with two pars and he's back in the clubhouse on a rather splendid -3. You've earned a few puffs on your cigar sir.
Rafa Cabrera-Bello is back. After a bogey at the 15th, the Spaniard seals a par and a birdie on the 17th to get within one of Zach Johnson.
Ooooohhh. A second successive bogey for Rory and he's on +3. Head bowed and it's sympathetic applause from the galleries. He's left his putter at home.
Ian Poulter hanging in there on -2 with four pars and a pair of birdies in last six holes. Perfect start.
More stars and stripes. American Mark O'Meara gets his round going with a couple of birdies. Not a bad start eh.
Another American firing along is Bubba Watson. Seven pars, birdie, par in his opening nine and a couple more slices of red and he's doing nicely on -1.
