Updates on Tiger Woods from Round 1 of The Open

Tiger Woods has built his summer around The 150th Open at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

The 15-time major champion has said throughout his career that the Old Course is his favorite

 a sentiment that he has echoed this week. Woods, 46, has won three previous Open Championships
