Every evening Paddy Power brings you the latest betting news!
The Open started, some players hit some balls and so far Adam Scott is the man who has hit his ball the fewest times. Finishing his round in a six under par 64. Paul Lawrie and Zach Johnson sit just one shot behind him on five under.
Tiger Woods played well to come in on three under par 67 as he looks to claim his 15th Major, though it’s now over four years since he won his last big one, the 2008 US Open. Ernie Els and Graeme “G-Mac” Mcdowell will also be happy with their 67s.
At the time of writing, Rory McIlroy is three under, Luke Donald is one under and Padriag Harrington is level par.
On the less happy side of things, defending champion Darren Clarke is 12 shots off the lead with an ugly 76. He may struggle to make the cut unless he improves drastically on day two.
Tour De France
Bradley Wiggins looks set to become the first British rider to win the Tour de France after defending his lead on the last day in the Pyrenees. Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) won the stage but Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome were just 19 seconds behind and are now confident of completing a British 1-2 with just one flat stage and a time trial to go.
Once we went over the summit I knew Nibali was in trouble and a few of the other guys. I had a little chat with Froomey on the descent and that was it.
Obviously we’ve got the time trial to come but that’s very much our domain. It’s all looking very good at the moment. – Bradley Wiggins
