DFS PGA Optimal Lineups - The Open Championship

Woods says British Open has become best shot at a major The Open my best chance to add to majors haul: Woods

Three-time victor Woods, who missed out in the last two years due to injury, will get his campaign for a 15th major title under way at 1521 alongside Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and Scotland's Russell Knox. We'll get things started with the top-tier players that will cost a pretty penny for your DraftKings fantasy golf picks. "A links-style golf course you can just roll the ball", added the 42-year-old.

Despite his back-to-back victories at the U.S. Open, the 28-year-old Koepka believes he should have won at least one more by this stage of his career. He knows links golf, knows Carnoustie and knows what he's capable of. "It's my favorite type".

"So when the conditions are nice and dry like this, I can use the whole golf course to my advantage with my length".

Three weeks ago at the Quicken Loans National, Woods went to a new putter, a TaylorMade model that looks like a mallet and has grooves on the face. That's just part of it and the fun challenge of it.

He made his links debut at Carnoustie in 1995 as an amateur at the Scottish Open, a week before his British Open debut at St. Andrews. He finished T12 and T7 in his last two trips to Carnoustie in 2007 and 1999, respectively.

"I'm not sure I agree with him", said Slumbers, referring to Thompson's comments.

There were no social media or cell phones back in the respective playing primes of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, et al.

Woods says the British Open offers him his best chance to win because it's the next one on the calendar.

"You get to places like Augusta (The Masters) where it is just a big ball park and the golf course outgrows you unfortunately. I'm going to spend a little time trying to get a pace for it".

Last year, he led the Tour for four days, but while sitting second overall he crashed in stage 9 and abandoned. He knows how to race over three weeks. "It's the ideal scenario at the moment and long may it continue".

There's lots of golf to be played before that might happen, of course, but it's probably not wise to sell McIlroy's chances short.

For whatever reason, Woods said he has struggled to adjust to the slower speeds over the years.

Already, there are numerous stories about how far the ball is rolling down fairways. It's how far it travels once it gets on the baked turf. Now you have guys that are turning pro at 18, 19, 20, that's the normal age to turn pro, and they're all making it at the same time. "I like all of them".

Johnson hit a three-iron and a wedge into the par-five 14th hole, which measures 513 yards, during one practice round.

Rory McIlroy is silhouetted on the 16th green during a practice round for the British Open.

Perhaps that strategy will work well for Woods, who famously won the 2006 Open at a burned-out and baked Royal Liverpool.

"Obviously that brings its own risks but at the same time if you're hitting the ball well, you can get it down there and get a wedge in your hand".
