Is Tiger Woods Capable Of Winning The Open Championship?

The Open Championship is back for its 150th edition at the Old Course in St Andrews.

Tiger Woods returns, searching for win number three on this hallowed turf after iconic victories in 2000 and 2005. The 15-time major winner has denied claims he will retire after this week’s championship, but admits it could be his last time gracing the Old Course. While Rory McIlroy enters the week as the favourite after renewed hope he can add to his four majors after an eight-year drought. The Northern Irishman will join last year’s champion Collin Morikawa and the form player, Xander Schauffele, who has won back-to-back events heading into this week, in what promises to be one of the most eye-catching pairings after the first-round tee times were released.

Other contenders include world No1 and Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, 2017 champion Jordan Spieth and last month’s US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick, who will join Woods and Max Homa in the most anticipated first-round grouping. This week’s winner of the Claret Jug will also walk away with £2.1 million after record prize money was confirmed by The R&A.

Follow below for all the first round scores, leaderboard, updates and reaction from 2022’s fourth and final major in 2022:

The Open 2022: Scheffler threatens to close in on lead as Tiger struggles

Jon Rahm with a bullet of a drive on five, fading it as it chases down the baked out fairway, he’s one-under through four.

Jordan Spieth, also one-under, released his right hand as he hits driver, but a similar result to Rahm as it finds the short stuff.

Tiger Woods, now four over through four, with a testing chip that runs way past the pin on five.

And Scottie Scheffler is agonisingly short and right of the hole for his birdie putt on 10, he stays at four-under.

The Open 2022: Rory McIlroy on club changes for St Andrews

“I’m using a lob wedge with less bounce than I usually do, I could do with using even less bounce.

“The fairways are so firm, the lies are so bare. If I hit a full lob wedge, I could’ve thinned the thing into the middle of the town. Up at the top of a major championship and you’re worried about

“Also a two iron instead of a five wood, I hit that a fair bit, that’s a good club this week.”

The Open 2022: Rory McIlroy reacts to opening round

“More rough, I’ve never hit driver on 16, but it’s in play. The conditions, it’s playing so short, it’s still tricky, there’s an eight-under, it’s not as if everybody is shooting lights out.

“It’s not very easy out there, the pin positions, they’ll hide them and make it hard to get close to some of them. The first, over the burn, over the slope on two, the right ridge on three, way back on four. I’ll expect them to keep doing it.”

The Open 2022: Spieth grabs birdie to kick-start bid

Jordan Spieth is already dialled in on these greens, a sublime 30-footer at two gets him to one-under, Jon Rahm meanwhile is level.

The other star-studded group alongside McIlroy, Morikawa and Schauffele has also finished up. Victor Hovland is rolling nicely, he shoots 68 to sit four-under, while Shane Lowry and Justin Thomas post steady 72s.

The Open 2022: McIlroy in the clubhouse on -6

A wonderful eagle attempt stops just low of the hole and McIlroy is in the clubhouse at -6. That’s a fabulous round and he’s just two shots back of our leader, Cameron Young.

The Open 2022: McIlroy drives 18th green

McIlroy finds the left edge of the 18th green with a long iron and a two-putt birdie is certainly on the cards now.

Back at the 7th, Scheffler has a short putt for birdie that would see the world No 1 move to -4. He’s barely put a foot wrong so far.

The Open 2022: Rahm gets underway

The Open 2022: McIlroy saves par at 17

McIlroy makes a gutsy par save at the 17th and will fancy a birdie at the last that would leave him just two shots off the lead. The short closing par-4 has been the easiest hole of this opening round so far, with an average of just 3.54 shots per player.

Elsewhere, Paul Casey is on a charge. The Englishman, who recently joined LIV Golf but has been sidelined with a back injury, has birdied four of the first eight holes.
