Woods Review: Day One of The Open
Woods started the day with a more than satisfactory performance with a total of 67 shots – three under par and three behind Australian leader, Adam Scott.
With reports of promising training sessions last week, some even compared glimpses of yesterdays performance to those of his peak period when Tiger would roam the greens, destroying any competition that stood in his path.
From the very first hole, Woods looked comfortable on the green after finishing it with a put from ten feet. Holes four, six and seven could also be claimed as birdies – the only bogey was held at the fifteenth. Woods said:
“I got off to a sweet start there. I kept hitting it well, but my pace was off on the greens. I only hit one putt that was off line. But every putt was right on my start lines. I just needed to hit the putts a little bit harder.”
Winning this competition would make it a fifteenth major for woods, his fourth Open Championship and first major win since 2008.
