"As far as the long-term, certainly I would say yes (it offers the best chance of winning another major)".
"So I'm excited in that regard, but I've still got to go and play the front side tomorrow and see what I'm going to do there because I haven't even touched my three wood or my driver yet".
"You don't have to be long to play on a links-style golf course". Look what Tom [Watson] did at Turnberry at 59.
"But you're just wanting to get it low and get it running". "That's just the way it goes". The great thing about this golf course is you can't take all the trouble out.
"There are maybe three or four holes out there that's one way or another, and that's all going to depend on how I'm hitting certain clubs that day, on how aggressive I want to be. A links-style golf course you can just roll the ball", added the 42-year-old. "Creativity plays such an important role".
Woods will be paired with Hideki Matsuyama and Russell Knox for his first British Open round since 2015. He missed the tournament in 2008 and 2011 and again in each of the past two years due to back problems. At over 7,400 yards, Carnoustie is the longest Open course ever, meaning players will have to deal with serious distance as well as challenging coastal winds.
"That combination with an Open Championship, the way it needs to be played, I think, is a really good spot for me to kickback into shape".
"I feel like it's gone pretty well". "And I was just like, 'Wow, I just hit a drive over 300 yards.' And now I'm hitting 2-irons over 360".
Carnoustie's fairways are expected to be faster than the greens this week
To adjust to the conditions - Woods said the fairways were actually running faster than the greens a few days ago - he has made a decision to stick a 2-iron with 17 degrees of loft in his bag this week. After his incredible final-round recovery at Royal Birkdale previous year, the American became only the second player, joining Jack Nicklaus, to win three different majors before turning 24, but has not won a tournament since. I've progressed throughout the year and had some nice little momentum things, building blocks, which is positive.
The 24-year-old and a swathe of his fellow young Americans threatening to dominate the future of the sport will also have a returning Tiger Woods. "The real interesting test is how we're going to manage our way around the golf course".
"I've put myself up there in contention a couple of times. (I) just need to lay some cleaner golf, and who knows?" Rory McIlroy has been candid about the fact he plans to use a series of drivers from tees, a policy not likely to be followed by Woods. His odds are 28-1, which might attract a lot of money considering he won the 2006 Open over baked out Hoylake. "It's just hard to keep the ball in play". He said that on Monday, he hit a 3-iron off the 18th tee that traveled 333 yards.
Woods first played the course as a 19-year-old amateur in 1995, getting his first taste of a links course, and then played the course as a pro in 1999 and 2007. He recalls that experience well.
"I hadn't been able to do that before".
"I enjoy this type because it is so creative". This was my first time.
"It stuck with me", Tiger said. "Are you kidding me?" I was used to having one or two people inside the ropes, but now there were 30 or 40. "It stuck with me".
