Gullane, United Kingdom: Shiv Kapur eclipsed some of golf's biggest stars when he shot a three-under-par 68 for tied fourth in the opening round of the British Open on Thursday.

Kapur was the surprise package on day one when he birdied six of his opening seven holes to turn in 30 and briefly hold a one-shot lead at the demanding Muirfield course.

He birdied the immensely challenging first hole followed by birdies on two and three. He then continued his electrifying momentum by marking three straight birdies from the fifth hole.
