HOYLAKE, England (AP) — Tiger Woods is off to a shaky start in the British Open.
Playing a major for the first time since back surgery, Woods looked rusty with bogeys on the first two holes at Royal Liverpool on Thursday.
A warm, sunny morning with only a slight breeze led to plenty of numbers in the red. Spain's Sergio Garcia and Italy's Edoardo Molinari are at 3 under, with Erik Compton among those a shot back.
Woods ran into trouble at the first hole when his approach shot caught one of the treacherous pot bunkers. His next shot scooted through the green and led to bogey.
At No. 2, the three-time Open champion knocked a long putt about 6 feet past the hole, then missed the comebacker to take his score to 2 over.
