“They’re probably a step and a half easier today than they normally are for an Open. Today they’re a little bit easier and we had a little bit more room and could take more chances. Even if you short-sided yourself, you could leave yourself uphill putts. Looking at the pin sheet before we played, I was surprised at how easy some of them were. We’re used to seeing them tucked three or four yards from the side or up against the back, or just over ridges. There was plenty of room.” – Tiger Woods
