The Open my best chance to add to majors haul: Woods

Carnoustie - or "Carnasty" as it's been affectionately dubbed - has hosted two of the four highest scoring Open Championships since World War Two, with Gary Player winning with a score of 289 in 1968 and Paul Lowrie claiming the Claret Jug with a cumulative score of 290 in 1999.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland - The golf course is fast, the golf ball is rolling forever and ever, and Carnoustie promises to see some unique strategy decisions this week during The Open. In his last five Opens, McIlroy has an average finish of 3.3 with a missed cut and a DNP mixed in. One of my favorites is Poulter, who has turned his career around this year and has now recorded seven-straight Top 30 finishes.

Good judges will tell you it will be his first of many starts on golf's biggest stage.

England's Justin Rose is still to better his fourth-place finish as a teenage amateur at Royal Birkdale 20 years ago.

"He's massive now - he towers over me", he said. "Watching it on TV, it's great seeing it on TV, but it's even better in person".

"There were points in time I certainly thought I'd never play in this championship again", said Woods, who will be making his first appearance at golf's oldest major since 2015.

Leishman's last four Opens have included a tied-fifth (2014), tied-second (2015, when he made a playoff with Zac Johnson) and tied-sixth past year, which is strong form. "Not to be smart, but it is the next major I'm playing", said the 42-year-old, before taking matters more seriously.

Fellow Brewers All-Star Lorenzo Cain addressed reporters postgame and revealed that, by that time, he had spoken with Hader. I know Hader, I know he's a great guy, he's a great teammate. "I really don't know what all is out there".

No, it is not the prettiest course in the world, it is not the museum piece, but, my God, it is the toughest and the best. "It's going to help me on these greens, for sure, because normally when I've come over here and virtually nearly every single Open I've played in, I would put lead tape on my putters to try and get it a little bit heavier and get the ball rolling".

Tiger Woods of the U.S. during practice. "When I look back at those pictures, the more I can be like that the better".

Reed said his challenge was "getting a bit more comfortable with landing the ball short and letting it run" and adjusting to "hitting a 90% six iron 260 yards when back home I'm hitting a three wood". "It's going to be really interesting to see how it all plays out". That's just the way it goes. The other Kiwi Mike Hendry, who qualified in Japan, is off at 11.20pm (Thursday NZT) alongside Lee Westwood and Kelly Kraft.

Rickie Fowler - He's got to win one eventually, right? He played a practice round with Jon Rahm earlier this week and was refreshed by Rahm's straightforward approach to the game. It's where I feel like I can 100 percent be myself and express myself. He turned pro a few weeks later.

"When we last played The Open here I was just happy to be here".

Rory McIlroy is hoping to end a four-year wait for a major title at Carnoustie this week but the 29-year-old is not overly concerned by the length of the drought. Also: $81 Ryan Fox, $501 Mike Hendry.
