Marcus Fraser of Australia and Matt Wallace of England shot 68s in high winds at Carnoustie and St. Andrews, respectively.

Fraser told Sky Sports afterward: "It's brutal out there".

Hard on the heels of Brooks Koepka's unfortunate incident at the Ryder Cup which led to a female fan losing the sight in an eye, Team Europe hero Tyrrell Hatton's shot at the 15th in the first round at Kingsbarns hit a woman spectator square in the forehead. "I just sort of stuck it out most of the day and waited for the putts to drop and at the end I made a couple of good par saves".

Fraser will play his second round at St Andrews tomorrow before tackling Kingsbarns on Saturday ahead of the 54 hole cut. "That's as strong as I've played the golf course I think".

"Then I was told the news and obviously I am really heartbroken".

The duo lie one shot clear of five others - victorious Ryder Cup vice-captain Padraig Harrington, fellow Irishman Paul McGinley, Austrian Matthias Schwab, Jinho Choi of South Korea and Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai.

Hatton is chasing down a third straight Alfred Dunhill title this week.

"I've hit errant shots thousands of times and you've got like six seconds from when that ball is hit with the driver to when it usually lands - and in those six seconds you try to yell fore and get everybody's attention. I'll have to see what happens but I don't feel too bad after Sunday's celebrations".

Hatton's round, too, was at Kingsbarns and the victor of the event in each of the last two years is lurking as a real chance to three-peat.

Two-time defending champion Tyrrell Hatton and US Open victor Brooks Koepka, also playing at Kingsbarns, were a further shot down at two-under while fellow Ryder Cup player Tommy Fleetwood was one-under.
