0

ABERDEEN, United Kingdom: Rory McIlroy muscled his way to a one-stroke lead with a new course record on the opening day of the Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen. McIlroy grabbed eight birdies, including four in succession mid-round, to break the existing course record by two shots with a seven under par 64 in bright but windy conditions on the par 71 links gem. It handed the double Major winner, who is contesting the event for a first time in four years, a one-shot lead over Sweden’s Kristoffer Broberg, the 27-year old Stockholm player equalling his best score on Tour with a six-under par 65.
