CARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Jhonattan Vegas teed off in his second British Open at 10:31 a.m. local time Thursday. But he almost didn’t.

A week earlier, Vegas found out that his visa had expired and was stuck in Houston. Even worse, UPS had what Vegas described as mechanical issues and his new passport was delayed. Plus, bad weather had delayed his connecting flight into New York City on Tuesday.

“Everything seems to be against me,” Vegas said two days ago. “… This is going from bad to worse but I will do everything to get to my tee time.”

Yet, Vegas was able to find a flight and landed in Glasgow, about two hours from Carnoustie, at about 8:45 a.m. He then hopped on a helicopter and rushed to the course.

By 9:50 a.m. Vegas was on the driving range in his golf attire – a pink Nike shirt, white pants and white shoes. Waiting for him was his caddie, Ruben Yorio, among others, along with two staff bags, one Mizuno and the other Titleist, and several clubs. His normal clubs hadn’t arrived.

Vegas worked through the makeshift set, which included Mizuno irons and TaylorMade woods. While hitting the TaylorMade driver, Vegas asked for a tool to adjust it. Someone had to rush to go find one.

Through it all, Vegas was smiling. As he walked off the range after about 20 minutes and headed to the chipping area, he quoted Allen Iverson.

“Practice?! Practice?!” Vegas said. “Who needs practice?!”

With new clubs and some adrenaline surely flowing, it will be interesting to see how Vegas performs Thursday.

The Open Championship is here!

We’ll be tracking all of the action from Carnoustie. Follow all Round 1 progress below:

UPDATE No. 7 (7:35 a.m. ET): We have a new low number in the clubhouse.

Kevin Kisner birdied the 15th for three straight to move into the solo lead at 5 under. He then buried key par putts at 17 and 18 to close out a 5-under 66. That puts him in the lead by one.

UPDATE No. 6 (6:35 a.m. ET): Van Rooyen bogeys 18 but is in with a 4-under 67. That’s the low score in the clubhouse by two, with Danny Willett and Matthew Southgate firing 2-under 69s.

Rooyen still only co-leads overall, as Kevin Kisner has made back-to-back birdies to move to 4 under through 14.

UPDATE No. 5 (6:10 a.m. ET): Jon Rahm drives the third green! That’s a 350-yard hole he drives and make a two-putt birdie. That moves him to 1 under. (Ignore the 407-yard caption in the below tweet, the hole is about 60 yards less than that.)

UPDATE No. 4 (6 a.m. ET): The defending champ is out with some fire!

Jordan Spieth birdies Nos. 2 and 4 to quickly move to 2 under. He’s three back and T-6 at the moment. Van Rooyen still leads at 5 under (with one to play).

UPDATE No. 3 (5:30 a.m. ET): Danny Willett birdies the 13th and ties van Rooyen for the lead at 4 under!

The 2016 Masters champ has found some form again of late with a pair of top 10s (and an additional top 20) in his last five starts.

UPDATE No. 2 (4:35 a.m. ET): Van Rooyen birdies the 11th to keep the solo lead at 4 under.

Some background on the South African: He’s a 28-year-old ranked 144th in the world. His pro career started on the Sunshine Tour in 2013 and mainly found himself there until early 2017. He earned his first pro win with a victory on the Sunshine Tour in February 2017.

He then moved to the Challenge Tour, where he won in October. That propelled him to a third-place finish on the money list and earned him a European Tour card. In his first European Tour season, van Rooyen has a runner-up (Joburg Open) and three other top 10s. That includes a T-4 at the Irish Open, where he led after 54 holes.

This is his major championship debut.

UPDATE No. 1 (4:05 a.m. ET): Welcome to the Open!

Your early leader … Erik van Rooyen. Yep, the South African is out in 3-under 33. He leads by one over Danny Willett (2 under through eight). Phil Mickelson is among those just two back in a tie for fourth at 1 under.

The Open Championship begins Thursday at Carnoustie, and the conditions won’t present a huge issue.

Weather is always a factor at majors, but especially at the Open as wind and rain are more prevalent. What are we looking at for this year’s Open?

According to the forecast, there should only be rain in one round and the winds should be steady but not very strong:

Here is a more detailed look at each day…

  • Thursday: High of 68 degrees and sunny with just a few clouds early with skies becoming partly cloudy later in the day. Wind 5 mph or less until late morning when breeze moves up near 10 mph with gusts near 15. Wind moves up close to 15 mph later in afternoon with gusts around 20 mph.
  • Friday: High in upper 60s once again, with 80-90 percent chance of rain in the morning with winds around 10 mph and gusts just short of 15 mph. Cloudy in afternoon with some rain showers and winds fading slightly.
  • Saturday: High of 64 degrees. Skies mostly cloudy early and then partly cloudy later in day. Just 20 percent chance of rain. Winds 5-10 mph all day with gusts up to 15 mph.
  • Sunday: Temperature to reach into lower 70s. Similar to Saturday with cloudy skies early before partly cloud in afternoon. Once again, just 20 percent chance of rain. Wind at its strongest, around 10 mph with 15-20 mph gusts in the morning. Will get up to 15 mph with gusts almost to 25 mph later in afternoon.

So, take this all with a grain of salt because Scotland weather is notoriously fickle.

If that forecast holds up, though, it seems those off early Thursday and late Friday may have the slight advantage in terms of weather draw. But it doesn’t seem like there will be a huge split like we see at some Opens.

Also, this weather is incredibly benign for a Scottish summer. That will be music to players’ ears.
