Links golf can cause problems that shake up a leaderboard with one missed shot, and as long as a player can stay out of trouble and navigate the course, the Claret Jug is anybody's to win.

McIlroy grew up with this kind of golf in Northern Ireland near next year's Open venue, Royal Portrush.

The 29-year-old said: "Sometimes the pressure that it is put on the top guys to perform starts to wear you down". I think it was more "Stenson being Stenson" and he's fine, but if you're not willing to endure another week where you're sweating him, I understand.

Johnson thinks there are a lot of holes where he can hit it so long that he takes these bunkers out of play. "I'm going to spend a little time trying to get a pace for it".

He won the Arnold Palmer Invitational, taking a career-best 100 putts for the tournament in the process, finished joint-fifth at the Masters in April and has had three other top-fives.

Leishman's last four Opens have included a tied-fifth (2014), tied-second (2015, when he made a playoff with Zac Johnson) and tied-sixth past year, which is strong form.

This week, the rough is a little less severe - but the lack of rain in the area has left the fairways parched and players struggling to keep balls on the fairways. He says, with his signature brevity, that he will hit driver "a lot of times".

Tiger Woods, however, said that controlling a driver that can potentially roll for 80 yards or more can make that strategy risky.

"To have the opportunity to come back to play here in Scotland again, I've said this before throughout this year, it's been a blessing".

The injury which caused him to withdraw prior to the Scottish Open is a slight concern, but we're hoping that pushes people to look elsewhere, leaving us with an overweight stance on Stenson to the point where we should be at least double digits higher than the field. Padraig Harrington (who won at Carnoustie in 2007) hit his tee shot into the Barry Burn in front of the 18 green recently downwind, a distance of 400 metres.

"The bunkers are causing me to not hit drivers as opposed to being in the rough, " said Justin Thomas.

McIlroy warned against going in with one set game plan for the week, though.

Hadwin is enjoying the challenge of figuring out links golf and just how to maneuver his ball around from hole to hole.

Carnoustie has a nice tribute to the late Peter Thomson behind the 18th green after the five-time Open champion passed recently in Melbourne.

"You can't click into this style of golf quickly, especially when the fairways are as fast as they are now", he told BBC Sport. This Open, like your local auto dealership before you know it, offers two options: With a driver, or without. There's no doubt there's more players out there who are capable of having a big week and a big game for a major. Instead, most of his shots are with a 3-iron or 4-iron. "So the whole idea of these practice rounds is just to get a good feel for what I'm going to do, and then adjust accordingly".

Cameron Davis has been watching re-runs of The Open for the past couple of weeks.

Carnoustie is ready for another Open Championship. Lawrie, who used to be coached by Locke's father, is missing because of foot and back injuries.

Asked if he feels, beginning with this week's British Open at Carnoustie, which began Thursday, like he needs to "cement" his legacy with more major championships, McIlroy said: "At this point I'm not trying to cement anything".

"Brown is handsome, right?" joked Hadwin about the particular hue dominating the golf course.

Next month, Thomas defends his PGA Championship title at Bellerive.
