The Open 2021: first round – live!
Mackenzie Hughes is making his Open debut this week. The 30-year-old from Ontario is the first player in history to win on the Canadian Tour, the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour, and he looks in the mood to pop a European Tour event onto his CV. Three birdies on the bounce, at 4, 5 and 6, have shot him up the standings into second place. He’ll be pleased that there’s only one tree on the entire course here at Sandwich, given what happened to him at the US Open at Torrey Pines last month, when his tee shot at 11 got stuck in some branches and refused to drop.
