Ryder Cup hero Graeme McDowell was the best-placed Northern Ireland player after Thursday's opening round of the Dunhill Links Championship.

McDowell carded a two-under-par 70 at Kingsbarns where Rory McIlroy and Michael Hoey both recorded 71s and Darren Clarke had a four-over 76.

Gareth Maybin had a 72 at Carnoustie and the overall leaders are on 66.

The tournament is played Carnoustie, Kingsbarns and St Andrews, with the latter hosting Sunday's final round.

Nine of Europe's Ryder Cup players are in the field, plus captain Colin Montgomerie.

The Dunhill Links Championship features 168 professionals and the same number of amateurs playing in two-man teams.
