Worst round of the day belongs to Japan's Makoto Inoue with an 83. No birdies and nine bogeys (two doubles). Ouch.
NEWSFLASH: South African Louis Ooshuizen withdraws with what is believed to be a hamstring injury. He was on +4 after eight holes.
Shiv Kapur's day just gets better. Four birdies and a par and he's on four under after five holes. Sizzling effort.
Not a stunning day by Masters champ Adam Scott but he rattles in a dazzling birdie with his monstrous ugly putter (the head's the size of a football) on the 11th to get back to level par.
Oh lordy. India have a superstar who is ripping through this scorched Muirfield. Shiv Kapur. First six holes - five birdies. Stunning. And he joins Zach at the top of the leaderboard on five under.
I cannot believe this.....SIX BIRDIES IN SEVEN HOLES.....Shiv Kapur is riding high at the top of the leaderboard.
Two birdies in three holes and Adam Scott is on one under after 13.
Shiv Kapur: played as an amateur in the US, won the Indian and Malaysian Amateur Opens in 2000 and individual gold at 2002 Asian Games. Turned pro in 2004 and joined European Tour in 2007. You might just be hearing abit more about this 31-year-old from New Delhi over the coming hours.
WOW - another par saving putt by Westwood. He remains on +1.
Tiger Woods is looking dangerous. VERY. Two birdies back-to-back and he's on one under. But he's in trouble on the 12th. Ball slaps the green but rolls into the sand. His shoulders slump. He's fired up.
ROAR. That's a stunning hold from Tiger as he scoops the ball out of the sand and then plops in his 10-footer. Top stuff. Beware this man.
Kapur slots in a par on the 8th. He stays in the lead by one on -6.
CLUB ABUSE: Charl Schwartzel. Four bogeys and a birdie is testing his patience on the back nine and on the 15th, his ball goes wayward again and WALLOP, he hurls the iron at the ground and a minute later TV pictures show him walking with a serious pout and half a club. I thought that behaviour was only allowed for 14 year-olds.
Lively words from Poults.
More roaring and the crowd love it as Tiger Woods putts in his third birdie in four holes. Two under and bouncing.
WELL WELL it just couldn't last could it? Not when I start talking about it anyway. It's another hole without any red and Shiv Kapur pars another and turns in 30. Not a bad start eh?
WARNING: Some shocking trooser pix coming right up....
Seems like Ian Poulter's views on the pin positions have rattled a few cages. ...
Graeme McDowell getting to grips with his wobbly ship after that horror show on the 9th with the double bogey on the par five. Five pars in a row and he remains on one over.
