The 2011 British Open kicked off on Thursday at 4 a.m. ET. Denmark's Thomas Bjorn finished the first round with a two-stroke lead at 5-under with a 65.

Or will an American like Phil Mickelson or Bubba Watson get off to a good start at Royal St. George's in Sandwich, England. Follow our British Open live blog for updates!
