Follow Speith, McIlroy and Woods around Carnoustie

The ignored golf star who wants and hates your attention

It looked like such a promising round for Spieth, who was 3 under par as he teed off on the 15th, but he hit his opening effort into the fescue and then plugged his next shot in the most troublesome pot bunker on the hole. "It's a pretty cool feeling", said Fox, on the phone during a leisurely 500m stroll from his rented lodgings to the course.

"Greg (Norman) was there at Birkdale, I think about 54-ish, somewhere around there, 53, 54".

"He brings more people, the sponsors are delighted, the public are delighted, the media are delighted. Until he sends it over the goal four houses over and we've got to go knock on neighbours' doors for the soccer ball".

"I feel like our team is improving, " Reed said.

The best players in the world will be tested by both the course and the elements this week at Carnoustie, and as is typically the case at the British Open, the player that can best adjust their game will walk down the 18th fairway on Sunday with the championship in hand.

McIlroy, asked to describe defending champion Jordan Spieth, said: "I was going to say a better person than he is a golfer, but that sounds like I'm discrediting him".

China says USA blaming Xi for blocking trade deal is "bogus"
The goods included fruits, vegetables, handbags, refrigerators, rain jackets and baseball gloves. Xi's top economic adviser, Liu He, appears willing to move forward on a deal, said Kudlow.

Spieth has not won since his Open success last July but he believes his game is back in place for the rigours of Carnoustie when battle commences on Thursday, having taken some time out to relax. I flew home with him after he won and I'm staying with him this week and he no longer has it.

Fox experienced the "Tiger buzz" at his first Open at St Andrews three years ago (a tie for 49th), and in Dubai last year. He tees it up at 11.37pm (AEST) Thursday.

England's Tommy Fleetwood get a feel for one of Carnoustie's infamous bunkers in the leadup to the Open Championship.

"I will make the effort to enjoy myself this week". It's always hard backing up a few good weeks in a row. "I think there was one manufacturer that was singled out a bit more than anyone else".

Dustin Johnson is the bookies' favourite to lift the Claret Jug with Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy not far behind him in the betting.

Rory McIlroy, the 2014 Open victor, was 1 under par with five holes still to play, but world No. 1 Dustin Johnson was struggling at 2 over at the same juncture.
