Tiger Woods Just Finished His First Round At The Open

Rory McIlroy

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

"If I have 22 putts the next three days, I bet I'll have a pretty good shot [to win]". In his first appearance in the Championship since 2015, and after all he's been through with his back, this truly felt like a gift from the gods. "She's been massive, she'll be with me for the rest of the weekend", said Van Rooyen.

Lincicome joined Babe Zaharias, Shirley Spork, Annika Sorenstam, Suzy Whaley and Michelle Wie as the only women to tee it up in a PGA Tour event when she striped her opening tee shot down the middle Thursday at Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Ky. But creativity plays such an important role, and you've got guys like Tom playing late in his career, doing well. The margin of error was so tiny, those who witnessed it will not forget the moment easily.

Fox talks of two-irons running 300m-plus which isn't necessarily a good thing, and makes aggression a risk with nasty pot bunkers dotting the parched fairways.

He fared a lot better than his friend Dustin Johnson, as the world No 1 subsided to a 76 after a triple bogey at the 18th.

Other than McIlroy, the hoped-for British and Irish challenge never materialised in great numbers either, with links specialist Matt Southgate and renaissance man Danny Willett faring best in matching Rory's score, while Bristolian Chris Wood shot 70.


A relatively unknown player in Erik van Rooyen took the lead early but was later passed by Kevin Kisner, who finished the day at five-under and now sits alone at the top of the leaderboard. His response was birdies on the 10th and 12th before curling in a long putt on No. 13 and shouting, "Go get that!" to his caddie, mimicking a line used by Jordan Spieth in the final round a year ago on his way to the claret jug. He gave it back on Monday. "So the round certainly could've been a little bit better".

"When we last played The Open here I was just happy to be here".

His Carnoustie housemates already have eight major titles between them and now Kevin Kisner is hoping to making it nine after a brilliant start to the 147th Open Championship.

The house group has a deal among one another that if one of them wins the Open, he pays for the private jet back to the US. Then on Thursday 16-year-old Martin Vorster, a member of the Louis Oosthuizen Academy, won the Junior Open on the Eden course at St Andrews. "I thought I was going to be a nervous wreck".

In all, though, it was a good day for the frat boys.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth was not a model of accuracy, and it finally caught up with the Texan as he dropped four shots in the final four holes for a 72.
