Did Brooks Koepka ghost Tiger Woods ahead of The Open Championship?

Tiger Woods

It's wonderful. One of my mantras this week is "look around and smell the roses".

"I don't think when he grew up that he ever thought there would be an Open Championship here", said Koepka.

"It changes your life, really, especially for a guy like me that likes to go a little bit under the radar and doesn't really need the attention", Molinari said, according to BBC Sport.

It's a mission that all 156 players in this year's field take on with open eyes, because there's nothing else in the world quite like the history that is made at every Open Championship. "But at the same time, just having that perspective might make me relax a little bit more".

Some 215,000 fans are expected at the Dunluce course during the week, with tickets selling out for both tournament and practice days.

McIlroy and Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay, McDowell and others were among those who took in a rare, late afternoon round for being the eve of the Open.

However, McIlroy hopes the buzz around the tournament means he will not feel the pressure once play gets underway. Before long, the rain returned. I actually met Darren Clarke that day for the first time, which was really cool.

Fox says of what he's seen of Tiger Woods this week, he'll be a contender for the Open.

Flamboyant Englishman Max Faulkner was awarded £300 and the Claret Jug the last time it was held at Portrush, which is just a few miles down the coast from the Giant's Causeway.

"His Open challenge fell apart at that first hole", suggested Sky Sports commentator Paul McGinlay. For some in the United Kingdom, the question has become politically charged since the course is owned by U.S. President Donald Trump and the R&A doesn't seem to be in a hurry to return to the layout.

The 2014 Open Champion snap-hooked his first tee shot of the day out of bounds left, then needed six more shots-including taking a penalty drop for an unplayable lie and missing a four-footer for 7-en route to a quadruple-bogey 8.

Back then, what's happening this week looked, in his words, "beyond the realms of possibility".

Tee-off at the only golf course in the Maldives?

"I think, as well, I think it's probably easier for me this week because it's such a big tournament". He knows his spots to miss it, the spots to come in from.

When Brooks Koepka was growing up, Tiger Woods was on top of the golf world.
