Tiger Woods became frustrated with the photographers lining the 18th hole during the first round of the British Open on Thursday. As Woods was looking to hit his second shot on the par 5, he was distracted by people who were taking pictures. He had to back off of the shot twice.
Tiger was mid-swing the second time he was distracted and stopped at the last second. He shouted out “Jesus Christ!” and the ESPN cameras picked it up perfectly.
The British Open is one of the most difficult tournaments in golf, and it can really frustrate the players. You might remember Tiger cussing up a storm after missing a putt at the same event a few years back. Henrik Stenson also broke a club over his leg on Thursday, so you get the point. It will be a long enough weekend for some guys without having to be distracted by fidgety fans.
