Players at the Australian Open have complained of stinging eyes as toxic smoke from bushfires around Sydney affected the opening round yesterday.
Sydney’s air quality index registered on a par with Beijing, forcing New Zealand golfer Ryan Chisnall, who is asthmatic, to don a face mask.
Smoke has blown over from huge fires that have raged for more than a month.
The tournament is taking place at the Australian Golf Club, five miles south of Sydney’s central business district.
Scott, who is thinking about wearing a face mask for the second round, struggled to a four-over 75.
England’s world number 14 Paul Casey, the highest-ranked player in the field, finished the day on 68, three shots off the lead.
