It is really quite difficult to bogey the first hole at St Andrews, but Tiger still found a way.
Opting for an iron off the tee, Tiger hit a fairly short first shot but still left him with a good line for the green. However, he still found a way and hit a poor wedge short of the green, bounced off the stone wall and landing in the burn.
Whilst Jordan Spieth, playing ahead of Tiger, managed to birdie the first two holes. Tiger is the only player on the field to bogey the first two holes. Woods has bogeyed the first hole of the five of his last seven majors. It’s become such a renowned problem that there are now odds on Tiger opening with a bogey.
It looks like it wasn’t just a nervous start as Tiger has picked up another two bogeys and now stands at four over par.
Not the start he was looking for…
