Tiger Woods prepared for return to Carnoustie

Patrick Reed in practice

"Playing the links courses are so different to what these guys are used to for the majority of the year, it is a completely different challenge, you have to be ready for it, approach it right, hope you can get off to a good start then handle the conditions and keep it together". Teryn Schaefer presents the best social media posts from around the world of golf in "Good, Bad & Unusual" and after each day's play brings you the biggest talking points in "The Takeaway".

"I feel like it's gone pretty well".

That is true for Tiger Woods, who returns to the tournament for the first time since 2015 and for his fourth tournament - and third Open - at what is generally considered the toughest venue in the tournament rotation.

"[The mallet putter] has a little more swing to it", Woods said Tuesday. "Just need to play some cleaner golf, and who knows?" "Everything is going just a little bit better".

Woods arrived at the Scottish course to the north of Dundee near 3pm Sunday local time accompanied by his caddy, Joe LaCarva and after a 30-minute session on the range he took to the very dry Carnoustie course.

"We are still working on it and it's not there yet but we are trying to make it happen", said Woods.

Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, and Tiger Woods are amongst the favorites in Las Vegas to win the Claret Jug at Carnoustie Golf Links this year. For the week, Woods hit just a single driver, choosing to play irons off the tees for positioning and wearing out the field with some incredible iron play to the greens. That's just going to come with a little bit more experience and I think that I've made a few adjustments. Even hitting sometimes 4- and 5-irons, they've been running 50, 60 yards. I had never played links golf.

"Traditionally, the guys who have done well over the years have been wonderful feel players and wonderful lag putters because a lot of times it is hard to get the ball close and you have numerous putts from 40 or 50 feet". And I said, 'No, I'm just enjoying this.

"I grew up in Southern California where it's kikuyu grass; nothing rolls".
