KINGSBARNS, Scotland (AP) — Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen put himself in contention for another memorable victory at St. Andrews, taking a share of the lead Thursday after the first round of the Dunhill Links Championship.
The South African shot a 6-under 66 in excellent conditions at Kingsbarns. He is joined Rafael Cabrera-Bello, Markus Brier and Michael Hoey at the top of the leaderboard.
The tournament ends Sunday at St. Andrews, the scene of Oosthuizen’s sensational seven-shot win in the 2010 British Open.
Top-ranked Luke Donald had a 69 at Kingsbarns, one of the three courses hosting the $5 million event.
