Shiv Kapur carded a 3-under-par 30-38=68 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

The Indian earned his tee time at Muirfield via Local Final Qualifying on July 2, but he's no stranger to the global scene. What was surprising was how he started today's round. After going birdie-birdie-birdie at holes 1-3, he settled for a par at the par-3 fourth. Kapur then rattled off three more birdies at 4-6 to sit atop the leaderboard for a while. Alas, he'd play his final 12 holes in birdie-free 3-over with one bogey and a double to finish two strokes off the overnight lead.

Shiv Kapur completed 36-hole Local Final Qualifying at Dunbar in Scotland in 7-under-par 69-64=133, good for co-runner-up honors and one of three berths into The Open Championship.

Three golfers at each of four sites will gain entry into the major today. Kapur went bogey-free in the nightcap to secure his second start in The Open (MC, 2006). John Wade matched Kapur's aggregate with respective rounds of 70 and 63, also going bogey-free in his second lap of Dunbar. Wade missed the cut at St. Andrews in 2005 in his only previous appearance in the major. Amateur Grant Forrest was the medalist at 8-under 67-65=132. He offset three bogeys with 11 birdies. Forrest is currently 77th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. Notables that failed to qualify include: 134--Robert Dinwiddie ... 135--Kevin Phelan ... 141--Elliot Saltman ... 142--Jin Jeong.
