Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa has the 1st round lead in the 149th The Open at Royal St Georges Golf Club in England.

Louis had what he called a prefect round a bogey free -6 under par 64, to lead The Open by one shot;

Yeah, probably in my mind the perfect round I could have played”

“I didn’t make many mistakes. When I had good opportunities for birdie, I made the putts. So yeah, just a very good solid round.”

“I’ve learnt over the years playing Major Championships that patience is the key thing, and even if you make bogeys, know that a lot of people are going to make bogeys.”

“I was just very patient. I was trying to just hit my shots and didn’t really hit anything close enough to make birdies those first few holes, and then all of a sudden just made two good putts on eight and nine and got the ball rolling.”

“It happened quickly, but you still need to put yourself in those positions, and I felt definitely the last ten, eleven, holes I gave myself a lot of opportunities.”

Tied in second place at -5 under after rounds of 65 are Jordan Spieth, and Brian Harman, both from the USA.

Jordan is playing well lately;

Here I feel for the first time since then I’m at least coming in with a bit of form, a bit of confidence, and really my start lines off the tee.”

“I felt like I drove the ball good enough today to be able to shoot a really good score, and I’d like to improve.”

Notables not in red figures are World #1 Jon Rahm, Spain, defending champion Shane Lowry, Ireland and Bryson DeChambeau of USA, all at +1 over par. Inexplicably at the bottom of the leaderboard at +10 over par is Phil Mickleson.
