Team America At The British Open Update: Round 1

There was really only one highlight from the first round, and even though I'm sure you saw memes for days on Twitter, here's the putt Phil Mickelson just missed that would have had him at 62 for the day:
Phil, of course, is American. He's leading the team of Yanks against the Redcoats currently, and whoo boy what a team it is.
Mickelson is -8.

Reed is -5.

Thomas, Stricker, Horschel, Finau, Johnson, and Bradley are -4.

 Haas is -3.

Fowler and Woodland are -2.

Watson, Kisner, Leonard, Na, Moore, Simpson, Holmes, and Herman are -1.

The two highest-ranked Americans, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, both shot an even-par 71 today.

Overall, 19 Americans and 31 non-Americans are under par for the tournament. But 8 of the top 11 are our boys, so you have to love our +160 bet at this stage of the game.
