Well that didn't take long.
With beautiful weather at Troon and the greens playing remarkably sympathetically, it seemed like only a matter of time before someone claimed a hole-in-one.
And that proved the case as Louis Oosthuizen grabbed an ace at the 14th while the Open was still in its first morning.

In fact, Oosthuizen is making a habit of this sort of thing.
The South African also had a hole-in-one at the Masters earlier this year.

The ace at Troon brought Oosthuizen back to level par after 14, having carded bogeys at the eighth and 10th.
Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy was among the leading pack at four under after 10 holes.
