SOUTHPORT, England (AP) - A look at the key hole Thursday in the first round of the British Open:

HOLE: 17.

YARDAGE: 567.

PAR: 5.

STROKE AVERAGE: 4.5.



RANK: 18.

KEY FACT: Both Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka birdied the hole, the easiest on the course, to get to 5 under, where they shared the lead with Matt Kuchar. Kuchar missed a 6-footer for birdie on the hole that would have given him the outright lead.
