Hoylake: Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri stumbled to a couple of late bogeys to return a disappointing three-over 75 on the opening day of the Open Championships here on Friday.

Among the early starters, going off at 7.09 am, Lahiri's game looked wayward and he missed a good number of fairways especially on the back nine and dropped four bogeys and a double against just three birdies.

Looking and sounding disappointed Lahiri admitted, "It was ideal conditions and I have no excuses. I played pretty poorly especially on holes where there were lots of opportunities. The last four holes are easier holes and coming in, I think I got a bit frustrated that I didn't make anything happen. It's a great learning experience."
