Tiger Woods bad day at the British Open- Know why

From the very start, Woods was unable to garner any momentum around the Old Course. 

Woods finished the first round with a 6-over-par 72, carding three birdies, five bogeys, two double-bogeys and many missed opportunities while playing alongside Max Homa and Matt Fitzpatrick..

The 46-year old 15-time major champion has gone through extensive surgeries on his lower body, including after his right leg was injured in a single-car crash in February 2021.

Woods withdrew from the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after posting a career-worst round at the event with a 9-over 79.

Woods made the cut at the tournament but cited injuries as a reason for his withdrawal.
