Bubba Watson was at the top of The Open leaderboard after seven holes of his opening round, but he then endured a triple-bogey six at the Postage Stamp. Danilo Pereira Jersey
. Watson does not have a good Open record, missing the cut four times in seven appearances with a best finish of 23rd in 2012, but he put himself on course for a strong challenge with five birdies over the first six holes in glorious conditions on day one. Open leaderboard The 145th Open But he came to grief at Royal Troons iconic par-three eighth, where his problems began when he blocked his tee shot into the left bunker and, with his ball almost up against the bank, he had no chance of aiming near the pin. He splashed out hoping to hold the back of the green, but his ball trickled over the back and into the rough, from where his first pitch did not clear the slope and rolled back down towards him. Watch The Open Watch the first round of The Open for free, no contract Watson pitched to 15 feet and then shaved the hole with the putt before tapping in for an ugly triple-bogey which sent him plummeting down the leaderboard to two under par.That hole has been killing me all week, even in practice, Watson said. I hit one bad shot all day and I just hit it on the par three there.

. Fifth-seeded Cilic gained his fourth title in Zagreb and became the third Croat overall to win at least 10 career titles. Cilic also lifted his career record in Zagreb to 22-4, winning 20 of his last 21 matches at the event.MINNEAPOLIS -- An impressive start from Hector Noesi was just a couple of pitches away from being something really special. Noesi allowed three hits over 7 2-3 innings, and Adam Eaton had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night. Noesi (5-7) gave up two runs, struck out three and didnt allow a hit until the fourth inning. Alexei Ramirez added two hits and an RBI for Chicago, and Jake Petricka went one inning to earn his fifth save in six chances. "When you have command of your fastball, every pitch you can mix in, and theyre going to swing and miss," Noesi said. "But everything was working today." Phil Hughes (10-7) gave up two runs and four hits and struck out four for the Twins. But he left the game with a bruised right shin in the fourth inning when he was hit by a chopper off the bat of Adam Dunn. Hughes is listed as day-to-day. Danny Santana hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning for the Twins, who couldnt touch Noesi for most of the game. The White Sox claimed Noesi off waivers from Texas at the end of April and he has been up and down for most of the season. The Dominican right-hander had everything working against the Twins, who traded veteran Kendrys Morales to Seattle earlier Thursday in the first of what could be several salary dumps as the trade deadline approaches. "The strides hes made are impressive from when we got him to what hes doing now where hes at," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "To be able to go out and give you this its definitely steps in the right direction." Noesi didnt allow a hit until the fourth inning, when Trevor Plouffe reached on a bloop single that plopped down between three White Soox. Bruno Alves Jersey
. He allowed only two runners in the first seven innings, and by the time the Twins got to him in the eighth, it was too late. "He kept us off balance all night long," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Hughes, in an ominous sign for a team that has struggled mightily to find quality starting pitching, limped off the field in the fourth inning after being hit. X-rays were negative, and Hughes is hopeful to make his next start. The White Sox jumped on emergency reliever Samuel Deduno, who walked in a run and gave up a two-run single to Eaton to fall behind 4-0. The Twins cant afford to lose Hughes, who has been by far their best starter this season. He entered the game with a 10-6 record and 4.06 ERA, and his reliable performance through the first half of the season made his three-year, $24 million contract one of the few bright spots during another miserable season in Minnesota. "Just thankful it wasnt broken and just go from there," Hughes said. "Its sore right now and Im sure it will be worse tomorrow. Im just happy it should be all right in a few days." NOTES: Chicagos Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a double in the fifth. ... White Sox bench coach Mark Parent is not with the team for the series due to family reasons. ... With regular 3B coach Joe Vavras hip ailing, the Twins have been using 1B coach Scott Ullger at third and Paul Molitor at 1B. Molitor is leaving the team this weekend to attend the Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown so the Twins called up Sam Perlozzo to coach 1B for the rest of the weekend. Perlozzo is the teams minor league instructor. ... The White Sox send LHP John Danks (8-6, 4.35) to the mound on Friday night against RHP Kevin Correia (5-12, 4.76).
