The Open Championship at Hoylake continues on Friday with several Australians looking to make their move after an opening day of carnage.

Many big names fell by the wayside during the opening round with a surprise top-10 emerging, including little-known names such as Adrian Otaegui, Antoine Rozner and shock joint-leader, amateur Christo Lamprecht.

Lamprecht, tied with local hero Tommy Fleetwood and Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo, are the clubhouse leaders at five-under.

Min Woo Lee and Lucas Herbert are five strokes back, while Cameron Smith, Adam Scott and Jason Day begin round two at one-over.

Lee tees off early at 4.41pm (AEST), followed by Herbert at 8.58pm, Day at 11.04pm, Scott at 11.48pm, and Smith at 11.58pm.

The major will continue amid controversial overnight headlines after a stunning attack of PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan by four-time major winner Ernie Els.

Els, who won the Claret Jug in 2002 and 2012 and is at four-over this year, unloaded after completing his opening round when he was asked about the PGA Tour’s mooted partnership with the DP World Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment fund.

Els said that if such a controversial merger was put forward in his prime, there’s “no way” Monahan would survive.

“No way,” he told Sports Illustrated, adding: “And the board has to change.

“You do s**t like this. I’m sorry, it’s not right. Talk to us, tell us what you’re going to do, plan on negotiating. Don’t just go rogue as a member of the board and come back with a deal and think we’re all going to say yes?

“You’re affecting people’s lives. You’re affecting the professional game. It’s just so bad.”

Neither players from the PGA Tour or LIV Golf were involved in the decision-making process, and only learnt of merger plans through the media when it was first announced.

Only a handful of people were involved in the shock negotiations, including Monahan who made a deal with PIF despite having been so staunch in his opposition to LIV Golf, which it created.

“For these guys to go out there and do what they did, just off the cuff, as a board member, do a deal nobody knows (about)? The commissioner is supposed to be the guy running our tour. These board members make a deal or a so-called deal and with no input from the players. It’s an absolute shambles. I’m worried,” Els said.

Els also called LIV “circus golf” and said that team events don’t work outside of exhibitions and the off-season.

“It works maybe in a two-month, three-month happy season. Get these guys together, get teams together and play around the world. But then play real golf,” he said. “That’s what this thing is all about. That’s what I prided myself on. Like Tiger and some of these guys. Getting yourself into majors. And grinding.”
