"Hey Mom, I Beat TIGER WOODS!"

So far, the best story of day one belongs to 18-year-old amateur Rory McIlory, who finished with a three-under 68 and stands at a tie for third.

McIlory is the only player in the field without a bogey on his card, and will be able to tell his buddies that he beat Tiger Woods in the first round of a major (that would definitely make the front page of my MySpace profile).

Along with McIlroy (try typing that name five times fast), Sergio Garcia decided to finally switch putters and it's paying off as he has taken a two shot lead with just two holes to play.

U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera found smoking cigarettes actually helps you stay warm in the cold Scottish weather, shooting a 68 and finding himself close to the lead in a second straight major. Also, KJ Choi just won’t play a bad round, shooting 69 and finding himself right in the mix.

Ben Bunny struggled today, shooting an 81.

Congrats on the Deadspin love (and a nice piece, I enjoyed it). Thus far your coverage of the Open has been better than any major outlet I've read. Keep it up!
