Tiger Woods plays Carnoustie practice round ahead of The Open

"And then coming here to Carnoustie, it is special".

Woods played just eight holes, the first to fourth inclusive and then crossed to the 15th to play the closing four holes. "It's not tricked up and it's right in front of us".

"And that is going to especially so this week given how quick the course is playing". That's going to become a big storyline (alongside the weather) because if Woods is forced to (or chooses to) hit long irons off of these tees, it seems as if his chances of winning increase by a lot.

NASA Captures Images Of Crawling 'Spiders' On Mars
For instance, the Curiosity rover is slowly rolling on the Martian surface at a top velocity of about 1/10th of a mile per hour. After the release of gas to the outside, dust, soil and other elements are deposited near the "crater", which erupted.

"Right now the fairways are faster than the greens", Woods told Bob Harig of ESPN. "It does play into the hands of guys who can thread the ball around". You can really make the ball roll 60, 70, 80 yards.

"No, no I don't have to relearn how to play this style of golf because I have played in so many Open's and so many links courses over my career", he said. Some of the holes, can you carry bunkers?

"The great thing about this golf course is you can't take all the trouble out, you are going to have to take some risk".

Sutherland on the launch pad to be Britain's first spaceport
Sutherland was in competition with other sites, including Prestwick in Ayrshire, Unst in Shetland and Newquay airport in Cornwall. The U.S. -based company has been a prominent member of the consortium supporting Sutherland's bid.

This will be Woods' 20th Open appearance, having missed the tournament in 2008, 2011, 2016 and 2017.

For the first time, Woods commented on the proposed $10 million, winner-take-all match with Phil Mickelson that has previously been reported but not yet finalized.

Woods has not featured in the championship since missing the halfway cut at St Andrews three years ago, and he will be keen to atone for his early exit at Shinnecock Hills on the 10th anniversary of his 14th - and most recent - major victory.

China files WTO challenge against latest USA tariff plan
Last week, the ministry said it would immediately file a complaint to the WTO against what it called U.S. unilateralism. Trump has also imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on a host of trade partners including Canada and the EU.

When this point was put to him on Sunday, a laughing Woods replied: "Of course, that is what Patrick would like to see and it would be good of him to put up that money".
