The Open 2021 LIVE: Latest updates and leaderboard

Who will Win the Open Championship?

Follow all the action live from the first round at Royal St George’s as The Open gets underway.

After being postponed by a year, Shane Lowry will belatedly defend the Claret Jug after his stunning win at Royal Portrush, when he defied a stacked field and torrential rain to close out a popular and moving victory upon The Open’s return to Northern Ireland.

Lowry will face strong competition from a stacked field of competitors in Sandwich, though, with Jon Rahm in exceptional form after breaking his major duck at the US Open last month. The Spaniard played impressively at the Scottish Open last week and has a proven track record on links courses, having twice won the Irish Open. Elsewhere, the likes of Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele will both hope to contend, while Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau will put aside their hostility in the hope of success. On the home front, Lee Westwood, Paul Casey, Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton can all consider themselves among the challengers while, of course, Rory McIlroy remains in close pursuit of his second Open championship. Follow all the action from the first round below:

Brian Harman’s surge at the top of the leaderboard continues with the American now at -5. Spieth and Hovland are just two back with conditions primed for low scoring as the sun blazes overhead with only a gentle breeze.

Jon Rahm, the US Open champion and heavy pre-tournament favourite, has dropped a shot at the 5th and is currently +1. No such trouble for Jordan Spieth, though. The 2017 Open champion is -2 through his first seven holes.

Brian Harman’s fast start shows no sign of abating, with another birdie at the 5th taking him to -4. Meanwhile, over at the 18th, Andy Sullivan finishes up with a birdie and posts a 67. A fine start by the Englishman.

Louis Oosthuizen has just pulled off a magnificent chip at the fourth, aiming at a right angle to the hole and somehow stopping the ball just three foot away from the pin.

Richard Bland’s fine form continues! The 48-year-old, who finally won on his 478th start on the European Tour and then took a 36-hole lead at the US Open, went off in the very first group of the day and he’s one-under-par heading for the 18th tee.

Brian Harman has made an electric start to his round, birdieing his first three holes in succession to take the outright lead at -3. Andy Sullivan, Viktor Hovland, Paul Casey and Joel Dahmen are one shot back at -2.

Does the 2020 US Open champion have what it takes to add a second major trophy?

Andy Sullivan birdies 18 and he’s signing his name for a 67. Not a bad morning’s work. Richard Bland, who hit the first shot of the week a few hours ago, cards a level-par 70. Meanwhile it’s a third birdie in a row for Jordan Spieth, who joins the crowd at -2, and three birdies in four holes for Justin Harding, the 35-year-old South African picking up strokes at 14, 16 and 17.

-4: Harman (6)-3: Sullivan (F), Harding (17), Hughes (6)

-2: Hovland (13), Casey (12), Senior (9), Spieth (7)

6.05am EDT 06:05

Mackenzie Hughes is making his Open debut this week. The 30-year-old from Ontario is the first player in history to win on the Canadian Tour, the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour, and he looks in the mood to pop a European Tour event onto his CV. Three birdies on the bounce, at 4, 5 and 6, have shot him up the standings into second place. He’ll be pleased that there’s only one tree on the entire course here at Sandwich, given what happened to him at the US Open at Torrey Pines last month, when his tee shot at 11 got stuck in some branches and refused to drop.

-4: Harman (6)-3: Hughes (6)

-2: Sullivan (17), Harding (16), Hovland (12), Casey (12), Dahmen (10), Senior (8)

Sam Horsfield joins Paul Casey at the top with birdie at the par-five 7th. But Andy Sullivan once again slips back, shortsiding himself in a bunker at the par-three 11th. That’s his third bogey of the round, the third in the last five holes. Can he register a third bounceback birdie in a row? It’ll be quite the sequence if he can.

-2: Horsfield (7), Casey (6)
-1: Sullivan (11), Kim (10), Noren (8), Bezuidenhout (7), Dahmen (4), Kirk (3), Kinhult (3), Senior (3), Gooch (2)

An English trio leading the way early doors. Danny Willett sends his second into 5 to four feet, setting up his second birdie of the day, while Paul Casey knocks his tee shot at the par-three 3rd to a couple of feet, and has no problem tidying up. Joining the pair at the top: Andy Sullivan, who birdies 8, repairing the clumsy damage of the previous hole.

-2: Sullivan (8), Willett (5), Casey (3)
-1: Noren (6), Lee (4), Hovland (3), Kokrak (2), Dahmen (1), Long -a- (1)
