Seven straight first time major champions for the first time ever. The big x group of players definitely not materialising.

Matsuyama will move to number 2 while Koepka is to be world number 10 in the rankings

Well done to Neville Kafka. Nice to see an unheralded player take out another big one.

Not a complete Neville (ie I had heard of him, unlike frinst Butch or the Mac).....somebody said he was the 7th maiden major winner on the trot. Played four good rounds and was a clear and worthy winner.

(Are there stats on which maje has coughed up the most one-slam winners? My instinct says it would be this one or the PGA)

Yes, he's been a bloody solid player for a few years. Got to the ET by winning three tournaments on the challenge tour in one season. Such players usually go on to good things. He won a final series event (Turkish airlines Open) on the ET in his debut season there, and been top 5 in the past 2 PGA championships. That's not mentioning, while Reed stole the spotlight in the Ryder cup, Koepka was one of the USA's best players.

As for the point about one time winners. Just had a look through; the US  Open and USPGA are more prone to one time winners and unique winners. This is a bit skewed by the Open having a very thin field till the 70s, and the Masters being played on only one course.

Since Tiger Woods' last major in the 2008 US open, they've all been first time winners there.

If you're betting on the open championship. Put a bit on Tommy Fleetwood. Odds would've tumbled these past two months, but him not being a galactico might lend well to value.

Nice. I'm imagining Rahm will have much shorter odds because of his PGA tour success.

Bit surprised, to be completely honest. Those will tumble after he wins the Irish open in a couple of hours.

Bet everyone will be wishing that they turned up at Dundonald links this week. Today's been carnage with Poulter having a fantastic tournament.

Lahiri finding some form ahead of the Open. 6 under today. Now just needs some consistency.

Paul Dunne could be a really dark horse for that tournament. He's not qualified yet for the Open, but is one of the form players in the European tour.

Decent Scottish Open. Cabrera Bello finally won after 5 years! Shinkwin's some player. Challenge tour graduate from 2 years ago, iirc. Has had quite a few tournaments where he's had 2 or 3 good rounds. Finally got 4 good rounds

I'm pleased that Rafa won. It looked as though Shinkwin would win until he choked on the 72nd (he bogeyed a par 5 reachable in 4) but I couldn't stay awake for the playoff.

That should read "he bogeyed a par 5 reachable in 2"

Dunno, tbh. Fleetwood is the one I'm most expecting to do well.

If conditions get better in the second half of today, then one from there. Two groups have played the first hole, 2 pars, a bogey, double, a triple and a quadruple bogey so far.

Another bogey/double coming up on the opening. This time for Thongchai.

And apparently, Maverick McNealy (who's playing here) is Sun Microsystem's Scott McNealy's son.

4 pars, 3 bogeys, 3 doubles, a triple and a quadruple. Super tight tee shot. Looks best just to go with an iron and leave a long second.

Ooh nice bunker cam on the fourth. Kjeldsen, Willett and Horschel away. Willett struggling, Kjeldsen stuttering and Horschel streaky.... Expecting a couple more strokes dropped in this group.

Shows what I know, brilliant tee shots by Willett and Horschel. And quite long in comparison to Wood/Moore as well.
