London, July 17 (ANI): Former number one Tiger Woods, who used to dominate at St. Andrews, struggled to make a mark as he was 11 shots and 10 years off the pace after his worst Open round at the golf course.
Woods started his Open campaign by slapping a fat iron off the tee which sounded as tuneful as piano being played by Les Dawson.
Woods, who won his last Majors in 2008, said that he made so many mistakes that he knew it was a very benign day and guys were going to go low, the Mirror reported.
He added that hopefully he could put together a good round and then the whole team would move up the board progressively.
Woods insisted that it was not an ideal start but he still has 17 holes to go and he just had to try and grind it out.
His priority at Sandwich would be to make a cut at the venue where he won the title in 2001 and 2005. (ANI)
