On Thursday, the Old Course at St. Andrews will host for the 28th time the Open Championship. It is the world's oldest and most respected golf course, it is the home of golf.
Tiger Woods is still struggling to find his groove after returning from a five-month hiatus to cope with his personal problems. We all know that he loves to play at the Old Course in St. Andrews. He won the last two Championships that were held in St. Andrews. But that was in 2000, ten years after Woods is still reeling to find his championship form amid his personal turbulence linger in his mind.
If any golfer would want to beat Woods in a major tournament, this would be the right to do it. He's vulnerable since his mind might be not tough enough to contain his personal problems and his long layoff has finally affected his game. However, if Woods finally find its bearing at the right time then he will be tough to beat at St. Andrews.
Tiger Woods clearly struggled and agonized during his comeback from his personal hiatus but the sports books handicappers still placed Tiger Woods as the man to beat at the Open Championship.
