He was not alone in getting excellent results. Paul Lawrie and Zach Johnson signed cards 65 and Tiger Woods among a group who needed 67.

Scott, an Australian, 31, carded eight birdies way to its excellent annotation.

When he reached the 17th hole was seven under par, but fell into the last hole bogey. Anyway closed with 64 hits to tie the record of Tom Lehman in 1996.

"I am very pleased with this start," said Scott, who had never made less than 68 in 12 previous open. "It's nice to take advantage of weather conditions today.

Was surprising but very pleasing to play a solid golf betting. This is what had failed in the early rounds of the Open this year and it was my goal here, play as if it were your last day."

"Today I did, and now I have to work the next couple of days to stay in a similar situation," he added.

Woods spent some time up front. He played the first 14 holes in four under par until he ran into difficulties in the hole 15. Anyway finished three shots behind the leader, a position waiting to aspire to fight for their fifteenth title in big tournaments. Woods looking to end his drought of major titles since winning the U.S. Open in 2008 before being hit by injuries and personal life issues.

"I feel I played well," said Woods.

The weather conditions were favorable. An early rain gave way to dry weather and when they started playing virtually no breeze.

Several competitors took advantage of circumstances, including Ernie Els (67), who won the U.S. Open.

But the champion here last year, Darren Clarke, could not do less than 76. And Lee Westward, the favorite English and the best golfer without a major title, started with 73. "I have to practice," said Clarke. "I have to work. I'm really disgusted with myself for having done six over par."
