Four players share a one-shot lead following the opening day of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

Louis Oosthuizen and Rafael Cabrera-Bello went round the Kingsbarns course in 66 while Michael Hoey and Markus Brier completed the St Andrews course in the same score as all four men ended the first round on six-under.

Oosthuizen (14/1 SportingBet) shot seven birdies and one bogey as he made a fine start to this competition, while at the same Kingsbarns course Cabrera-Bello (35/1 Boylesports) sank an eagle, six birdies and two bogeys. Over at St Andrews, Hoey (50/1 SkyBet) made an eagle, six birdies and two bogeys over his first 19 holes while Brier (50/1 Betfred) made eight birdies only for a double-bogey to prevent him taking sole possession of the lead.

Graeme McDowell (16/1 bet365) leads a group of players one shot behind the leaders on five-under. McDowell, Jaco Van Zyl (33/1 StanJames), James Morrison (66/1 Boylesports), James Byrne (125/1 Victor Chandler) and Gregory Havret (50/1 totesport) all completed the Kingsbarns course in 67, while Marc Warren (33/1 StanJames) joined them having completed the Carnoustie course in five-under.

Former world number one Lee Westwood (8/1 SportingBet) and defending champion Martin Kaymer (11/1 SkyBet) ended the day on four-under and are joined by the likes of veteran Colin Monthomerie (80/1 SportingBet), newly-turned professional Tom Lewis (50/1 SkyBet) and Irishman Padraig Harrington (40/1 bet365).

World number one Luke Donald (11/1 bet365) is three-under after completing Kingsbarns in 69, with US Open champion Rory McIlroy (11/1bet365) a shot further back after completing the same 18 holes in 70.
