Woods drawn alongside Matsuyama and Knox at British Open

For example, Woods hit a 7-iron off the No. 4 tee to position himself short of bunkers; it went 215 yards. Eastern time Thursday, has won three Claret Jugs.

"I have missed playing in The Open a lot because it is our oldest tournament and coming here to Carnoustie is just special", he said.

Woods was referencing his first visit to Carnoustie at age 19 in 1995 - his first time playing a links course - and subsequent Opens he played.

It is the first time Woods will have contested an Open Championship since missing the halfway cut in the 2015 Open at St Andrews while it will be the fourth occasion he has teed-up in a Carnoustie Open. It is just one of these weeks where I don't see a lot of guys hitting woods off the tees just because it is so quick. A decade has passed since Woods last won any of golf's marquee events - in that instance, the US Open - with subsequent struggles largely linked to injury. "So it's possible. Greg [Norman] was there at Birkdale, I think about 54-ish". I hit a 3-iron that went 330 [yards on Tuesday at Carnoustie].

"You get to places like Augusta National where it's just a big ballpark and the golf course outgrows you, unfortunately". It takes place at the most hard links style golf courses, at a different venue every year.

"But creativity plays such an important role. This course can be played so many different ways, which is going to be the real interesting test is how we're going to manage our way around the golf course".

Schwarber will face Bryce Harper , who advanced through the first two rounds with a showy display of power at his home stadium. The six-time All-Star arranged to have his dad, Ron, pitch to him in the annual contest on the eve of the All-Star Game .

"I'm coming back as kind of a defending champion although Jordan [Spieth] won a year ago and it does make it a little more special", Harrington said.

"The guys who have done well have been wonderful feel players and also wonderful lag putters", he said, citing Tom Watson, who almost won the Open at age 59 in 2009, and Greg Norman, who contended at Birkdale the year before at 53. This makes tracking any history here nearly worthless, as the last time The Open was played here at Carnoustie was in 2007. It is just going to be about trying to keep the ball out in front of you. You would think that may be insane when the course is this quick, but there are a lot of quirky little bounces out there. "I would like to see him put up that money".

Tiger Woods is preparing for The Open at Carnoustie.

Carnoustie is baked out with brown-grass fiery fairways thanks to an unusually dry and hot summer, so it could represent a challenge similar to 2006 at Hoylake, where Woods won the last of his three British Opens by hitting only one driver all week. So there's not a lot of opportunities to hit the driver just because the ball is going to be rolling 80 yards. "Even hitting sometimes four and five irons, they've been running 50, 60 yards".

"I spent two hours on the driving range hitting the ball to the 100m sign".

He added: "I'd never done that before - that was one of the cooler moments".
