The first round of the Wales Open has got underway this morning at the Celtic Manor, near Newport. The annual tournament runs until Sunday.

Four of the European team which beat the USA in the Ryder Cup on the course in 2010 are in the field - Ross Fisher, Miguel Angel Jimenez, and Francesco and Edoardo Molinari. Colin Montgomerie and Jose Maria Olazabal also play.

Jamie Donaldson leads the Welsh challenge, hoping to be the event's first homegrown winner. He's currently the only Welsh golfer inside the world top 200, and has taken over as Wales No.1 from Rhys Davies and Bradley Dredge.
