Lost clubs? Oh well, how about a pre-Open round with Tiger

The Victorian missed the cut at his only start in a major, the US Open this year.

Carnoustie - or "Carnasty" as it's been affectionately dubbed - has hosted two of the four highest scoring Open Championships since World War Two, with Gary Player winning with a score of 289 in 1968 and Paul Lowrie claiming the Claret Jug with a cumulative score of 290 in 1999. Because I put my name down with Dustin (Johnson) on Monday, got brushed, and I put my name down with Rory (McIlroy), got brushed.

"I'm here to have fun as I try to do at every tournament, and I can't wait".

"I've played it before but I've never seen it like this".

Compatriot Rickie Fowler could take issue with being left out of their club given he is also under 30 at 29 - the only problem being he has developed a reputation for filling the minor places in the majors.

The return of Woods, who inspired numerous 20-something Americans to take up the sport, will be intriguing to see if the sea air awakens the genius in him.

"You've got the tee times are in there and I was at like 1.30, " he told Golf Australia.

For Fox, staying fresh has been the key, as he played just 27 practice holes at Carnoustie. Even when Woods was playing poorly due to injury, the galleries flocked and all the players took note of how he was going. You're just playing golf.

Princess Eugenie invites 1200 members of the public to her Windsor wedding
Like Meghan and Harry, the newlyweds will then undertake a short carriage procession through part of Windsor High Street. Thousands of royal fans also lined the streets of Windsor to see the couple. [It was a] complete surprise.

"Dad's my coach as well so it's pretty nice for him to be on the bag, because he's helped me get here". I've done a bit of that this year, just the decision making that's cost me.

Fox experienced the "Tiger buzz" at his first Open at St Andrews three years ago (a tie for 49th), and in Dubai last year.

"I'm not putting any pressure on myself to perform".

The 34-year-old has now finished in the top 10 on eight occasions this season, including wins at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and the FedEx St. Jude Classic, but has been a disappointment in recent appearances at The Open, finishing a distant 54th last year, and no better than 32nd in three of the past five years.

"Yes", said the 37-year-old as to whether he could win.

"Obviously, it has been a barren run for sure".

Fox talks of two-irons running 300m-plus which isn't necessarily a good thing, and makes aggression a risk with nasty pot bunkers dotting the parched fairways.
