Coming off his best four-round score of the season, Tiger Woods appeared to be coming out of his “slump.”
Judging by his first round of the 2015 British Open, he’s not.
Woods shot a 4-over 76 Thursday at the Old Course at St. Andrews, putting him near the bottom of the field. His previous career-worst score on the course was 73. At one point, he was tied for last in the field.
But Woods feels he’s in a good position.
Said Woods in a post-round press conference:
Discouraging, yeah. I was a angered a little bit. But I hit it really good coming home. I made some good clutch putts. I just needed to put those balls in position for birdies instead of pars.
Woods tees off at 9:56 a.m. Eastern in Friday’s second round.
Over the 4th of July weekend, Woods finished tied for 32nd in the Greenbrier Classic after shooting a 7-under 273, his best score of the golf season.
