Tiger Woods confirmed to play the 147th Open Championship

Tiger Woods confirmed to play the 147th Open Championship

The American confirmed his entry on the eve before the start of the Players Championship at the TPC Sawgrass Golf Course on Wednesday.

He might not have completed that, however Woods was nonetheless in a position to unleash a monster 349-yard drive on the par-five ninth as he bettered Mickelson like he did so many instances of their heyday.

The mega pairing turned out to be a mega dud.

He is six shots off the lead, though he did best his playing competitors, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.

The threesome delivered so few highlights that Mickelson's shirt was the talk of the town for much of the afternoon.

"I think nobody does slightly overweight, middle-aged guy better than me, so this says exactly who I am".

"I wasn't close enough", he said.

On Johnson, Bale added: "I really love watching Dustin Johnson play".

Those in the galleries had mixed reviews. He said the bigger issue was a lack of energy.

"I think it is going to be an incredible event and it will surprise everybody". "Hopefully give myself some more looks".

Pakistan has also decided that from May 11, restrictions will be imposed on all American diplomats and their movements. It has been further reported that back-door negotiations are underway between the two countries.

"But I was concerned that that was going to be the case, and it was".

Mickelson, who carded a disastrous 79 on Thursday, was 9 over for the tournament at the turn and clawed back only a stroke on his second nine. "And I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again because I didn't know if I would ever have it".

A lot of guys were under par, a bunch of guys in the 60s today, and it was playing a little bit on the softer side, and with this heat, even the wind picked up, with this heat the ball's flying forever. I just had a poor finish, 7 over the last five.

It might be his tournament, too.

Kim, who past year was the youngest victor of the Players, joined legendary Jack Nicklaus as the first player since Nicklaus in 1977 to shoot an equal defending champion low first round of 67.

"[The] best two players over the last couple of decades".

He last played in the Open at St Andrews in 2015, when he missed the cut with rounds of 76 and 75.

Midway through Friday, Schwartzel (6 under on Friday) and Cantlay (4-under) had posted their scores to go to 10 under after 36 holes.

His final putt was equally clutch. On Thursday, Woods gained strokes everywhere except off the tee.

"No, no, I have my own struggles", Woods said, when asked if it was hard to focus amid the copious calamity in his group.
