Tiger Woods is the three-time Open champion. At St. Andrew’s he won two times on the Old Course.
Visitors and Locals were cheering for Tiger Woods:
At St. Andrews, Scotland, Tiger Woods was walking solitary towards the 18th hole of the Old Course. There was a yellow scoreboard in front of him and the light was falling behind him when localities and American visitors who were present there shouted loudly “Tigerr” within the barricades. This time there was no victory march whereas it was the closing of the worst rounds played by Woods in a major. Since his days of command at St. Andrews, water flowed beneath the Swilcan Bridge, reminded of a six-over-par 78.
Tiger Woods won two times Open Championships first in 2000 and then in 2005, addressing himself as the fast-flowing water, returns on Thursday. Woods hit his opening tee shot in a safe space after getting the loudest round of applause from the audience present at the first hole.

Tiger Woods splashed down the shot and missed a shot put:
Tiger said, “I told myself, don’t hit it flat and don’t blame it, I didn’t do either, but I still hit it in the burn.” Here woods with burn means the water-filled trench that defends the first green. After one bounce he splashed down the shot and he missed a shot put and began his tournament with a double bogey.
As Omens go, He continued to struggle with bogeying the third and fourth holes and another double bogey on the par-4 seventh prior to making his first birdies of the round on the par-4 ninth and par-4 tenth. But later he realized that it was a wrong start as he continued leaving important chips and was short of his targets. For Woods, it will take a sensational round and reverse on Friday to at least make a cut and land in the top 70 golfers.
Tiger Woods said that “Looks like I’m going to have to shoot 66 tomorrow to have a chance, obviously it’s been done. Guys did it today, and that’s my responsibility tomorrow, is to go ahead and do it.” Woods is 14 shots away from the leader, A 25-year-old young man, who shot an eight-under-par 64 at St. Andrews while his first tournament. He was 13 when he first visited Scotland with his family and he also played for the first time in the Old Course.
Tiger Woods fell and shot 78 in the final worst round:
The first time, Woods came here when he was a teen and played the 1995 Open Championship as an amateur who was still coming to grips with the quirks and charms of links golf. He made the cut at first but fell and shot 78 in the final round which further became his worst round at St. Andrews until Thursday.
Tiger Woods’s first competitive round was on Thursday nearly two months. He looked and felt stronger, limping slightly. Woods said, “Yeah, it was a lot easier today, physically than it has been the other two events, for sure.”
The Old Course is not the most physically demanding as it has a flat layout but because of the backups on the course, the round turned into a toleration test and lasted over six hours making Tiger Woods and his playing partners Max Homa and Matt Fitzpatrick wait.
