The British Open began early Thursday morning from St. Andrews links Scotland. Many expect Tiger Woods to have a "breakout" tournament. Woods is a three-time Open Championship winner. Two of those wins were in 2000 and 2005 where Woods won at St. Andrews.

His first round scores did not disappoint. Woods is tied for eighth place at 5-under. Leading the pack is 21 year-old Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland. The young gun shot an eye-opening 9-under 63 during the first round.

Other notable scores include a surprise by the veteran John Daly shooting 6-under and fellow American Phil Mickelson shooting a less than impressive 1-over 73.

The British Open will resume play early Friday morning.
