Argentina's Angel Cabrera is tied with England's Stuart Little after the first round of the Barclays Scottish Open golf tournament in Loch Lomond, Scotland, a key warm-up for the British Open.

Both golfers shot 7-under-par 64s in the first round. Former British Open champion Paul Lawrie of Scotland is tied with South Africa's Richard Sterne and Lee Westwood of England one stroke off the leaders at 6-under-par 65.

Another former British Open winner, American Tom Lehman, is part of a large group of golfers two strokes off the lead at 5-under-par 66.

Two-time Scottish Open winner Ernie Els of South Africa shot a 1-under-par 70 and is six strokes behind the leaders. Els is attempting to win a third title at Loch Lomond before next week's British Open at Saint Andrews.
