Scorecard damage control


NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – Tiger Woods has finally made a birdie, after sticking his tee shot to inside 6 feet at the par-3 eighth hole.

But after three early bogeys, it is little more than damage control for the defending champion, who is currently tied for 67th.

It will be interesting after this to see whether Woods is installed as the favorite at St. Andrews in a couple of weeks. Granted, he won the past two British Opens there in 2000 and 2005, but time stands still for nobody.
