IRISH AMATEUR PAUL Dunne is off to a sensational start on day one of the Open at St Andrews.

Dunne took advantage of his early tee time to make four birdies in a near-perfect start.

The Greystones golfer sits on four-under after nine holes, two shots behind the early leader David Lingmerth of Sweden.

Dunne, 22, opened with back-to-back birdies on the first and second before adding another at the par-five fifth.

He then rounded off his brilliant front nine by rolling in a birdie three at the ninth.

Graeme McDowell is on level par thru two holes, while Shane Lowry is on +2 thru four.
