Newcomer Young surprises at the top of the British Open and Tiger Woods was very complicated

The celebration of the 150th edition of the British Open started this Thursday and the rookie Cameron Young He debuted with eight under par and 54 strokes to maintain a two-shot lead over Rory McIlroy. The possible last appearance of Tiger Woods at St. Andrews it might be short.

Your marker seems to indicate it. Woods started with a round of 78his second worst score in Open history.

Woods has never said goodbye to the Open at St. Andrews before the weekend.

“Looks like I’ll have to hit a 66 tomorrow if I want to stand a chance.”Woods said. “The boys made it today. And that’s going to be my responsibility tomorrow is to go out there and make it, I need to make it,” he added.

Young and McIlroy didn’t have to deal with the wind in the morning, though St. Andrews has seen fiercer winds in more than a century of golf. You’ve got the bumps and the bumps and the tricky positions, and the Old Course is still there.

“It’s the most difficult Open I’ve ever played. It’s the only way to describe it”McIlroy said.

Nothing tested your patience like constant waiting. In the afternoon, the rounds took just over six hours. They waited on the tee and course and it didn’t help golfers looking for the best angles.

Good scoring was achieved, with 54 players under par, of which 26 had a round in the 60s.

Young is a surprise leader as this is his first time at the Open. He’s having one of the best rookie seasons on the PGA Tour and the 25-year-old New Yorker isn’t intimidated by the stage. Two months ago he fought to the last in the PGA Championship and finished one shot away from the playoff.

Young played smart and took advantage of birdie opportunities. He was seven under par after 12 holes and the wind helped him from the ninth hole. He missed two good chances, but he had a birdie and more importantly, he didn’t have any bogeys.
