HOYLAKE, England (AP) - A glance at the key hole Thursday at the British Open:

HOLE: No. 1

YARDAGE: 458

PAR: 4

STROKE AVERAGE: 4.26

RANK: 5.

KEY FACTS: Tiger Woods made his return to the major championships with a bogey. Matteo Manassero holed out a 9-iron from 160 yards for birdie on the way to shooting 67, one shot behind leader Rory McIlroy. Ernie Els struck a fan in the face with his tee shot, missed a putt from less than a foot, then missed again when he took a sloppy backhanded swing at the ball for a triple bogey.
