Tiger shoots even-par 71 at British Open

Tiger shoots even-par 71 at British Open

The 14-time major champion bogeyed Nos. Kevin Kisner, the 18-hole leader, was among the late starters.

Woods arrived for his round with two pieces of tape on his neck but downplayed any concerns.

The bad news is that he's staring up at golfers like Brooks Koepka (-1), Rory McIlroy (-4), Tommy Fleetwood (-5) and Zach Johnson (-6).

Fleetwood hit the practice range on Thursday evening after being unhappy with his form during his opening 72, and the extra work paid off as his six-birdie card lifted him into the clubhouse lead, although he was surpassed moments later by Zach Johnson. He attempted one of the shots from outside the bunker with both knees on the ground. But he showed no ill effects from it as he stormed into contention only to fail to birdie No. 6 and then fall back with a series of miscues on the back nine. He looks phenomenal at times in various facets, but he's not quite sharp enough all around to truly contend or win.

Kisner, who is staying with Spieth and several other players at a house near the course, said they have been enjoying nightly soccer matches in the yard.

Magnus quit playing soccer to focus on golf at the age of 15.

Tiger finished tied for 32nd at the Masters before missing the cut at the U.S. Open. As long as you don't hit it in the fairway bunkers, you're always going to have a shot at the green.

A three-putt bogey on the third, and it looked as if it might spiral.

It added up to 4-over par through eight holes, and Carnoustie wasn't getting any easier. However, he was clearly irked by the remarks of Harmon, best known for being the coach of Tiger Woods from 1993 to 2004.

Tiger Woods slogged through a wet Friday at the British Open.

DJ wasn't as fortunate and made a awful triple-bogey on the 18th hole; he's now five-over and needs a solid performance on Friday to see the weekend.

Round one of the 2018 Open Championship is in the books and it was a good one.




Spieth was contending for the lead before dropping four shots to par on the final four holes.

Knox admitted he was in awe of Woods, something that may have caused him to struggle early on his way to a 73. Woods hit driver at Nos.

"I spent a lot of time with Jordan and the Claret Jug, " Kisner said. It was his putting that took him atop the leaderboard on 5 under.

They might be asking Kisner some questions about how he handled the Carnoustie greens Thursday, needing only 22 putts for his round.

"You've got the tee times are in there and I was at like 1.30, " he told Golf Australia. "But this week, they're not as slow as they have been".

"It's not intimidating at all", Kisner, who also shared Spieth's plane home after his victory at Royal Birkdale past year, said of his housemates.

Americans have won the last five majors.

A birdie on the first hole was just the start he needed. 16-18. The aggregate score over those three holes was 28 over.

The pair were in good spirits despite the rain, sheltering under an umbrella as they followed the game. 3 and 4. The second one was from distance.

A five-stroke lead with 54 holes remaining is far from insurmountable.

One shot behind was a collection of players with little history in golf's biggest events, including Erik Van Rooyen and Zander Lombard of South Africa. He's now No. 320. He is trying to become the fifth player in the last 50 years to win back-to-back in the British Open.

First things first: Tiger Woods is going to make the weekend at the British Open. The thin, wispy rough has sat down and made shots from off the fairway play much differently through impact.
