Tiger Woods played extremely well in the opening round of British Open on Thursday, especially when you consider that he has been out with a back injury for most of the season. Woods was 3-under for the day heading into the 17th hole. His drive on 17 was a bit off line, and a course marshall paid the price.
Tiger’s tee shot took a high bounce and hit the unsuspecting gentleman right in the face. Fortunately, it appeared he was OK.
Given some of the high grass that lines the fairways at Royal Liverpool, that guy’s face may have actually saved Tiger some trouble. He went on to make par on the 17th.
