Tiger Woods is refusing to get downhearted despite spraying the ball all directions during his first-round 71 at Turnberry today.
The world number one hit three wayward drivers and several errant irons shots as he cancelled out three birdies with four dropped shots.
However, while admitting that it’s wasn’t his best day at the office, Woods appeared confident about his chancves of getting back into the tournament.
“I certainly made a few mistakes out there today,” said the three-time champion. “Realistically I probably should have shot about one or two under par, but I made a few mistakes and consequently I’m at one over.
“Hopefully tomorrow I can play a little better, clean it up and put myself headed in the right direction.
“I hit a couple of shots to the right, three-ripped (putted) a hole from about 15 feet and didn’t take advantage of the 17th.
“You’ve just got to be patient out there, certainly you could shoot a good round today. You saw a lot of guys at three, four, five under and that’s what you could do.
“The wind is down, most of the pins are accessible … and you can make some putts out there.
“I’ll go on the range now and work on it… hopefully I can hit it a little bit better this afternoon and get ready for tomorrow.”
