Woods says British Open has become best shot at a major

Tiger Woods said the British Open offers the best chance to win a major.

They were joined by young American Bryson DeChambeau in the practice round.

The 31-year-old is happy with his group, both US PGA champions Keegan Bradley (2011) and Jason Dufner (2013), and says tee times are simply a lottery with the changeable weather. He missed the last two Opens while recovering from multiple back surgeries.

"So distance becomes a moot point on a links style golf course". Woods made just three more starts in 2015, then spent the ensuing two years in a holding pattern as the golf world wondered if he'd ever return - and to what form if he did.

Carnoustie Golf Links is one of the oldest golf locales on the planet, with some version of the game being played on the site all the way back in the 16th century.

"We're not going to get the most ideal bounces". That's just part of it.

"But to come back to Carnoustie is a blessing".

Might this be his best shot at winning another major? "Not to be smart, but it is the next major I'm playing", said the 42-year-old, before taking matters more seriously.

The 29-year-old has also finished no higher than 29th in his past three Open Championship appearances, but turned in a second-place performance in 2014. But links-style golf course, you can roll the ball.

Already, there are numerous stories about how far the ball is rolling down fairways.

"Reducing some of those tough par fours to a driver and a wedge gives you birdie opportunities so that's the plan this week". The next day, his drive was a few yards short of the burn.

"It takes out the bigger clubs and I think I'm long enough to be able to hit it".

"I feel I've got a better understanding of my game and it's coming with a little more experience". I've progressed throughout the year and had some nice little momentum things, building blocks, which is positive.

This weekend Carnoustie Golf Links hosts the 2018 Open Championship, inviting the best golfers from around the world to Scotland to compete on the links.

Johnson figures he'll hit driver on half of the holes.

Veteran Scotsman Sandy Lyle, Open champion in 1985, will have the honour of playing the first tee shot at 6:35am on Thursday morning.

Players were greeted by most parched fairways in recent memory, perhaps even browner and drier than at the 2006 Open at Royal Liverpool.

For Fox, staying fresh has been the key, as he played just 27 practice holes at Carnoustie. Woods said Monday that he hit a 3-iron off the 18th tee that went 333 yards.

"Going to be a real interesting test in how we're going to manage our way around the golf course", he said.

Lucas Herbert will make his British Open debut. That has been too much club off the tee. I was hitting nine-irons and four-irons and five-irons, just having a blast trying to hit the sign.
