It looks as if the rivalry born out of the 2015 U.S. Open between Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson has crossed borders into Scotland for the British Open.

Johnson shot a 7-under 65 on Thursday to break away from the pack by one stroke to hold the opening round lead of the PGA Tour’s third major of the season.

The 31-year old American showed St. Andrews’ The Old Course no mercy as he blasted his signature 300-plus yard drives to leave himself a wedge going into 10 of 14 par 4s.

He managed to turn in a blemish free scorecard that included five birdies and one eagle.

Spieth on the other hand made it known that he’s on the prowl for a calendar grand slam after coming off of a Masters and U.S. Open win.

After making birdies on five of the first seven holes, the 21-year-old phenom leveled off to finish with a 67.

Spieth is tied for eighth with five other golfers including Korean American Kevin Na who put together a solid bogey-free round.

Six players are tied for second at 6-under including Australia’s Jason Day who showed that his game has made a full turn around following a 2014 thumb injury that had been bothering him for quite a few months.

Day managed to make three birdies on each side.

Tiger Woods put up a disappointing effort shooting a 4-over 76 to fall close to the bottom of the pack.

South Korean An Byeong-hun shot a 2-over 74 and amateur Gunn Yang finished with a 1-over 73.
