The Open honours victims of Nice attacks


The French flag was flown at half-mast on Friday and players paid their own tributes as The Open honoured the victims of a suspected terrorist attack in Nice.

Tournament organisers the R and A offered players black ribbons to wear on day two at Royal Troon after 84 people were killed when a lorry ploughed into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city.

French player Clement Sordet took to the course among the opening group with "Pray For Nice" written on his cap.

Sordet's compatriot Victor Dubuisson is scheduled to tee off at 13:48 local time.
