The Open Championship: Miguel Angel Jimenez makes another fast start

Another Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello was in second place at three under through eight holes, with 2009 Open champion Stewart Cink, Germany's former world number one Martin Kaymer, Dustin Johnson of the United States and fellow American Jimmy Walker all at two under after a handful of holes.
