Woods says British Open has become best shot at a major

Woods says British Open has become best shot at a major Woods says British Open has become best shot at a major

After not making an appearance at a major in 2016 and 2017, Tiger is on pace to play in all four of golf's most prestigious tournaments in 2018. Obviously he's only played it as an Open venue one time - he was low amateur in 2007 - but this track is one of the three used in the European Tour's fall Dunhill Links tournament, which McIlroy plays often.

"The guys who have done well have been wonderful feel players and also wonderful lag putters", he said, citing Tom Watson, who almost won the Open at age 59 in 2009, and Greg Norman, who contended at Birkdale the year before at 53. It certainly can be done.

"You get to places like Augusta National (site of the Masters) and it's just a big ballpark and the course outgrows you, unfortunately". But a links-style golf course, you can roll the ball.

"Distance becomes a moot point on a links golf course". But creativity plays such an important role, and you've got guys like Tom playing late in his career, doing well.

"I remember that moment of crying in my mother's arms; of course I do", the 38-year-old told the Telegraph.

The three-time victor of The Open spoke at his press conference on Tuesday, as he makes his return to the championship for the first time in three years. He won in 2014 at Royal Liverpool (he missed the event in 2015 because of injury), then was fifth two years ago at Royal Troon and fourth last year at Royal Birkdale.

When Tiger Woods speaks, everyone listens. The 14-time major victor is excited for his fourth time playing at Carnoustie.

"It's great watching on TV but even better in person".

Rickie Fowler - He's got to win one eventually, right? "And I was just like, 'Wow, I just hit a drive over 300 yards.' And now I'm hitting 2-irons over 360".

Toyota Supra to gain entry-level, BMW turbo-four
Toyota showed off its new Supra at Goodwood, albeit in camouflaged prototype form. The second is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, specifically, BMW's B48B20 mill.

"Coming here to Carnoustie, it is special, " said Woods.

Debutant: Cameron Davis has had plenty of time to think about his first major start.

For example. Players such as Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka have suggested they will hit numerous drivers in attempt to blow tee shots over troublesome bunkers and take their chances with rough that is not almost as penal as expected. That's just the way it goes.

"I've put myself up there in contention a couple of times".

"I think at this stage players have caught up", Harrington said.

Woods didn't touch his driver during the last three rounds in 2006.

Woods will use a new two-iron this week to plot his way around Carnoustie, which remains rock hard and parched, despite a spot of light rain that fell while he was talking to the media. When he is on, he can hit the ball 350 yards or longer, and keep it on a string. "You can never hit them on the green from them". He recalls that experience well. I was hitting nine-irons and four-irons and five-irons, just having a blast trying to hit the sign.

"I hadn't been able to do that before". This was my first time. You're going to have ups and downs, you're going to have bad lies. And I said, 'No, I'm just enjoying this. Are you kidding me? It was definitely apparent that the difficulties this week are probably going to be putting it in play and hitting it in the fairways and go from there. "It stuck with me".
