The Open Championship 2015 Day 1- The Battle at St Andrews has Begun!

The 144th Open Championship is already underway and off to a bright, sunny start on one of the world’s oldest golf courses at St Andrews in Fife on the east coast of Scotland. The first round and second-round tee-off started at 6:32am BST (11:02pm IST, 1:32pm EST) and the broadcast can be watched on ESPN (4am-3pm EST) or on Watch ESPN live stream.

At the moment, it is Jordan Spieth who is making the headlines as he aims for a third major in a row, hoping to beat Tiger Woods’s record in 2000 US Open, Open and PGA Championships. Woods, on the other hand, despite his disappointing start during the first is still looking to lift the prize. This year’s favourites are Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson and Rickie Fowler.
